The EX 200-1400 & the AX 350-1400HBM electric small injection moulding machines announced by Krauss Maffei of Munich Germany and available from HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies , have been added to the extensive range of small, medium and large machines within the EX & AX ‘all electric’ series.
The EX 200-1400 with 2,000kN clamping force are high performance electric small injection moulding machines specially designed for the production of precision parts where high shot weights and material throughput in a short cycle time are a must.
The direct-acting plasticising and injection drive guarantees maximum process accuracy, while the unique Z toggle ensures quick mould movements on the clamp side. To ensure an ultra-clean production environment, the drives are fully enclosed and the motor is water cooled.
The parts can be transferred to sterile packaging immediately after production, cutting manufacturing costs by up to 25% at a recent demonstration. Fitted with a SR 80 side-withdrawal robot at a recent demonstration, the machine was able to produce disposable polystyrene cups in cycle times of 3.5 seconds.
In addition, The AX 350-1400, with a 3,500kN injection moulding machines’ optimised double toggle clamp, efficient servo motors and smooth-running mechanical parts can save energy consumption by up to 60%. It is designed for high precision moulding for the electrical, electronics, medical and automotive market sectors.
