Mars Series II hybrids debut

Absolute Haitian (Worcester, MA) has debuted the Mars Series II, a second-generation hybrid injection molding press that ranges in clamp force from 67-4400 tons. The manufacturer will be showing the machine at its stand at the upcoming Plast-Ex 2013 show in Toronto (May 14-16).

"One of the big features is that all of our machines are prewired with an RJG interface, for the eDart system for decoupled molding," said Glenn Frohring, owner, Absolute Haitian Corp., in an interview with PlasticsToday. "It's very popular in the Midwest; there’s a lot of that philosophy behind automotive, using RJG or Kistler sensors, taking the standard machine and pushing more of the process into the mold cavity."

The Mars II utilizes a servomotor-driven gear pump hydraulic configuration, and is said to have a response time of 0.05 second. It also features complete closed loop control, and a 20-80% reduction in energy consumption compared to a conventional hydraulic machine. Absolute Haitian is the exclusive sales and service agent for Haitian injection molding machinery in the United States and Canada.

Also included on all Mars Series II machines:

  • SPI Robot Interface
  • 2 air blow circuits on the stationary platen
  • 2 air blow circuits on the moving platen
  • 2 core pull circuits
  • Automatic lubrication of the clamp
  • Feed throat temperature control with solenoid valve
  • Water manifolds
  • Oil temperature control with water saver valve
  • Triple R bypass filtration

Plast-Ex (produced by PlasticsToday parent company UBM Canon) is Canada's largest plastics show, and is expected to draw more than 10,000 decision makers from North America and abroad. Eighty-one percent of Canada's 130,000 plastics-industry employees live within driving distance of Toronto. Plast-Ex 2013 is collocated with PACKEX Toronto, which includes the PAC Conference Packaging Optimization Summit, the ATX Canda Automation Technology Expo, and Sustainability in Manufacturing.

Among the other exhibitors of interest to injection molders will be Engel, Milacron, Wittmann Canada, Nissei, DME, RJG, and PolyOne. For more information, or to register go to
