Injection Moulding Asia

Compact and affordable
US-based machinery maker Milacron has introduced a compact range of hydraulic injection moulding machines for processors who may be weighing the pros and cons of buying used hydraulic machinery or who may be looking at all-electrics.

Deemed to be its lowest priced hydraulic range, the Magna Toggle (MTH) line comes in a range of 35-400 tonnes clamping force. The machines designed by Milacron's Ohio manufacturing facility in collaboration with its global operations team, offers a mono-toggle version ranging from 35-90 tonnes, and a 10-pin double-toggle configuration ranging from 125-400 tonnes, the latter with automatic lubrication.

The MTH features an electronically-controlled variable-volume pump, with only two manifolds for the injection unit and clamp. This series offers processors better repeatability, quicker response and fewer hydraulic connections, says the company.

Completing the line is a servo system (MTS) that replaces the standard induction motor, and in this case, an electro-hydraulic pump is replaced by an internal gear pump, resulting in lower inertia and a highly dynamic speed control system. The servomotor can vary from 0-3000 rpm in both directions, whereas the induction motor is limited to 1750 rpm. The higher rpm delivers more torque for the same power delivered.

The line will be delivered from stock, however, a host of options are available including PVC and thermoset kits, core pulls and air eject.
