Husky Injection Molding Systems (Bolton, ON, Canada), a global provider of injection molding technology, equipment and services to the plastics industry, announced that a state-of-the-art, automated manufacturing line is now in operation at its Luxembourg facility. This is the third straight year that Husky has made a significant investment in new manufacturing equipment to support its growing base of hot runner and controller customers. In January of this year, Husky began producing hot-runner manifolds on one of the most advanced automated manufacturing lines in the industry, said Husky’s release.
“As our global customer base for hot-runner and controller systems continues to grow so does the complexity of the molded parts for which we help find solutions,” said Stafano Mirti, Husky’s President of Hot Runners and Controllers. “I’m very excited about where we are taking our business and how this significant technology investment will enable us to support our customers and help them to grow their businesses. Our new manufacturing line will enable shorter lead times and provide even more capability to produce highly repeatable manifolds of the best quality.”
Husky currently produces hot runners and controllers on three continents in more than 54,000 square meters of manufacturing space. Additional investments are planned for hot runner manufacturing in its U.S. and China facilities. Husky’s goal is to be the industry’s first choice for melt delivery systems, as seen by its innovative approach to reducing sources of waste and variability in the injection molding process.
