Cincinnati Process Technologies (CPT; Cincinnati), a supplier of machinery, parts, services and technology for the plastics molding industry, has announced a new line of injection molding machines from Taiwan manufacturer Asian Plastic Machinery (AP). The new Super Master EV2 series features a high-precision servo drive system integrated with a proprietary servo controller in a value-priced line of machines with clamping forces from 88 to 1,099 tons. Asian Plastic machines are sold, installed and serviced in North America exclusively by CPT.
According to CPT General Manager Mike Green, the new line provides repeatability, precision speed and temperature controls and a rapid clamping movement that reduces clamping time by as much as 70%, all while maintaining very low noise levels. Additionally, the EV2 series can save up to 80 percent of energy and water usage. According to Green, pricing for the EV2 starts in the low $40,000 range.
The state-of-the-art Smart Mold Controller in every EV2 machine allows operators to program various stages of injection speed, holding pressures and screw RPMs. The B&R 10.4-inch display provides full function monitoring, and the modular hardware design allows for future addition of automation upgrades.
