Maruka's injection molding division is well-known as the exclusive North American distributor of all-electric Si series of machines from Toyo. To meet the market's demand for hydraulic presses, Maruka also offers servo-driven hydraulic injection molding machines from Taiwanese machine maker FCS.
At PLASTEC West 2013 in Anaheim, Maruka debuted the new FCS line of hybrid and hydraulics. Product Manager Dale Bartholomew told PlasticsToday the company viewed the line as filling a potential gap created by Toyo's exit from the hydraulic market.
