World-leading plastics machinery specialist, Krauss Maffei of Munich, Germany introduces their new high performance MX 650+ injection moulding machines designed to meet the needs of the packaging industry, specifically for high cavitations and heavy moulds.
Offering injection rates of up to 700 mm/s, MX 650+ injection moulding machines can cope with different mould installation heights and heavy weights up to 13,500kg.
Using large moulds containing a large number of cavities, the MX 650+ attains precise platen parallelism and even clamping force distribution, which form the basis for process reliable production.
According to Paul Caprio, President of Krauss Maffei (USA), the MX 650+ is the ideal solution for the packaging industry, given that multi cavity moulds are primarily used for screw closures and sealing caps, and require very short cycle times.
The MX 650+ injection moulding machines have very high plasticising capacities and an energy-saving electric screw drive. The polyolefins used by the packaging industry produce high melting capacities and uniformly high melt quality at low melting temperatures. The clamping unit is therefore fully employed in the machine and the processor benefits from short cycle times.
