Netstal’s hybrid Elion combines speed, efficiency

Modular design, hybrid empowered energy efficiency, and injection speeds that allow molders to minimize material use and reduce cycle times have helped Netstal's market launch of its Elion 3200 go "exceptionally well", according to the Swiss machinery manufacturer.

Netstal, which is part of KraussMaffei Group, said the machine has caught on with injection molders of packaging, closures, medical components and high-precision technical parts, since its introduction at last October's Fakuma. This is the latest in the line, which includes Elion 500, 800, 1200, 1750, 2200, and 2800, with those figures referring to clamping force in kN.  

The injection unit, which is also used in Netstal's Evos series, can reach injection speeds of up to 2000 mm/sec by applying dual-valve technology. Netstal reports that thin-walled packaging parts can be formed in filling times of under 0.1 second.

The machine's Eco Powerunit, a hybrid technology, reportedly reduces energy consumption by up to 50% in comparison to conventional, hydraulically driven toggle lever machines.

Other machine stats:

  • Mold open distance: 657 mm

  • Distance between tiebars: 720 by 670 mm

  • Maximum mold weight: 4600 kg
