All-electric press features wide platens, flexible design

PP_UBE_electric_imm.jpg With the capabilities of a 2000- to 2500-ton hydraulic plastic injection molding machine, the Ultima UN 1550 all-electric injection molding machine offers a wide platen equivalent to a 2000-ton hydraulic machine. This a-c servodriven, toggle-style electric molding machine is capable of molding large parts such as automotive instrument panels and door trim. Electric machines will reportedly reduce energy usage, give more accurate molding cycle control, shorten part cycle times, reduce clamping force, and lower scrap rates. They also offer a greater variety of molding applications including thin-wall molding because of more precise machine control. Eliminating hydraulic oil maintenance and disposal offers advantages for cleanroom molding.

Other benefits include a flexible design that easily incorporates new processes such as inmold coating. The machine?s constant pressure filling capability eliminates pressure spikes at cavity fill, allowing natural injection speed deceleration during cavity fill and a smooth transition from injection to pack. The machine has a clamping force of 1550 U.S. tons. The tiebar space is 72 by 59.4 inches with a 98-by-78-inch platen. Standard die height is 25.59 to 51.18 inches. Its dimensions are 559.17 inches long by 129.92 inches wide by 125.79 inches high with a weight of 180,400 lb.
