HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies has announced that it now stocks Krauss Maffei's new all electric EX injection moulding machines, suitable for the manufacture of sterile medical goods.
These injection moulders have been designed specifically for complex moulding applications, offering maximum dynamics and precision.
They offer precise platen control, which coupled with the metering accuracy of the all electric plasticising unit ensures mould cavities can be filled precisely without overfeeding.
This in turn prevents flash, which can be an issue when mass producing medical goods, given the high cavitations and corresponding shot weights.
In addition, all machine areas of these new EX injection moulding machines are easy to access, making it easier to undertake obligatory cleaning cycles.
A closed oil lubrication system supplies the pivot points of the Z toggles and prevents lubricants from leaking. The production cell is virtually without particle or thermal emissions and potential sources of impurity are eliminated as there are fewer pivot points which are completely encapsulated and tie-bars are no longer required as guides for the moving platen.
