Co-injection goes hybrid for energy savings

Calling it the industry's largest servo hybrid co-injection molding machine, Milacron will be running a 1500-ton MAXIMA press developed in conjunction with co-injection expert Bemis at its 2013 open house (April 24-25; Batavia, OH). In addition to allowing molders to sandwich scrap resin within virgin material, the servodriven coinjection device uses less than half the energy of a comparable 1500-ton hydraulic.

Milacron said the machine offers seven unique process capabilities and can be configured for sequential or simultaneous injection, stack molding, multi-component and co-injection, as well as other advanced processes.

Milacron and Bemis Manufacturing have a long history of co-injection collaboration, including a 6600-ton co-injection machine used to create hood components for John Deere tractors, among other applications.

Other machines on display at the event will include:

  • ELEKTRON 400 and 500 with the Endura touch control

  • ROBOSHOT 55 demonstrating LSR molding

  • F-Series 160 hybrid platform with high speed accumulator injection

  • Roboshot 160-ton with Mold-Masters E-Multi injection unit making 2K poker chips

  • POWERPAK 550 with a two-stage injection unit making 5-gallon buckets

  • K-TEC 350 high-speed packaging machine

  • Magna T Servo Hybrids demonstrating IML and DME's collapsible core technology.

  • New Endura control on the Magna Toggle and Elektron platforms

  • GPAK 45 extruder running 1-inch PE pipe

  • PAK 250 extruder with a pelletizer to produce strand-cut pellets
