The Cap-Tec 300 machine designed for high-speed production of thin-wall packaging items is one of several Ferromatik Milacron models now offered with Xaloy nXheat induction barrel heating.
 



Xaloy’s (New Castle, PA; www.xaloy.com) nXheat induction barrel heating system is now an option on Ferromatik Milacron (Malterdingen, Germany; www.ferromatik.com/en/) injection molding machines. As previously reported (imm.plasticstoday.com/?q=articles/11764), nXheat heater bands promise to reduce energy consumption and barrel heating time, as well as provide tighter control of melt temperature for improved part quality and less scrap; and they do it with a high-frequency power supply and helical induction coils to generate heat directly within the barrel wall.

“The nXheat system is now an element of our Green Line program for energy-saving, high-performance Cap-Tec machines,” says Winfried Stöcklin, general manager of Ferromatik Milacron’s K-Tec business unit. It’s offered as an optional retrofit on the machine line in two forms: the all-zone nXheat, in which induction heating replaces conventional heater bands (designed for larger machines with more than three heating zones); and the nXheat-Hybrid, which heats the barrel’s feed zone while conventional heater bands are used on downstream zones (for smaller machines with two or three zones).—[email protected]
