Absolute Haitian is bringing the third generation of its best-selling Haitian Mars servo-hydraulic injection molding machines to North America in fall 2021. The line was first presented to plastics processors in the United States and Canada at a virtual event held by Absolute Haitian in June.
Worcester, MA–based Absolute Haitian is the exclusive sales and service partner in the United States and Canada for Ningbo Haitian Machinery Co., Ltd., the world’s largest supplier of plastics injection molding machinery. It is headquartered in Ningbo, China.
Since its introduction, the Mars line of injection molding machines has sold a record-setting 300,000 units. Absolute Haitian claims that the third-generation Haitian Mars III is more powerful and economical than its predecessors. Equipped with mechanical, hardware, and software upgrades, the Mars III series includes a new generation of servo-hydraulic drives that ensure precision and reliability in an energy-efficient package, according to the manufacturer. The machines are available in clamping forces from 67 to 3,709 US tons (600 to 33,000 kN).
Improvements to the injection unit include up to a 19% increase in speed, depending on tonnage; newly designed plasticizing components; and more accurate and energy-efficient injection carriage and injection movement with a lower friction co-efficient. The clamp unit features a platen designed for centralized force transmission to the mold; graphite/steel bushings that provide better lubrication and extend the life of the unit; and improved repeatability of mold opening and closing.
Connectivity Plus enables open connection to and easy integration with the automated processes, cells, and production lines of the customers’ integration partners.
Absolute Haitian also is introducing a fast-cycling version of the machine, the Mars III F. Suited for molding thin-wall parts, the Mars III F is available with injection speeds up to 500 mm/sec, achieving up to 19% in cycle time reductions.
Absolute Haitian is exhibiting at Plastec West this week at booth 3955. The show runs Aug. 10 to 12 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.
