Here’s a sample of what visitors can expect:
Milacron’s new Q-Series product line provides the latest servo-hydraulic technology in a toggle injection molding envelope. The Q-Series design is inspired by the durable MTs series and the proficiency that was provided by the F-Series. When combined, the globally offered Q-series will provide critical power when it is needed and use less power when it is not. The Q-Series can be built to suit ten tonnage offerings. The US 55 to 610 (500-5.500KN) ton machines support multiple injection frames, providing an extremely wide range of flexibility with each clamp tonnage. These combinations provide a wider range of molding opportunities. The Q-Series is a true culmination of high efficiency, consistency, and globally engineered technology. The Q-Series is part of Milacron’s Quick delivery lineup, allowing the machines to be built and delivered to a manufacturing facility quickly. Little time is required from a customer’s order to the start of production. Q-Series has been designed to fit the high expectations of toggle performance while providing extraordinary value. Leveraging the use of a servo motor in combination with hydraulic components, Q-Series provides exceptional repeatability and energy savings. The clamp kinematics provide enhanced velocities while delivering a smooth and accurate operation. The clamp design provides for better tonnage linearity allowing minimum tonnage to go lower than previous toggle designs. The eco-friendly design generates savings in electrical power consumption, cooling requirements, and lower maintenance cost.
Discover the versatility and value of the latest addition to our industry-leading all-electric product line. Building on decades of all-electric injection molding innovation, the Elektron from Milacron provides clean, precise, efficient production in a full range of applications. It uses 60% less energy and 90% less water than hydraulic injection molding machines, reducing operating costs substantially. The engineered parallel movements paired with the servo-driven axes make the Elektron ideal for the reliable production of high-precision parts with fast repeatable movements.
This series features a completely new, FEA-optimized clamp design with a greaseless part drop area and absolutely no hydraulic oil, making it ideal for cleanroom operations. A robust 5-point toggle system optimizes operation utilizing large mold opening strokes in a compact design. The Elektron is designed for a full range of applications, in a wide variety of sizes, and offers outstanding value to customers to help them achieve their plastics manufacturing goals.
The new Maxima Performance Series builds upon the highly successful Maxima platform. The Maxima Performance Series addresses the market demand for higher performance, precision, and flexibility. This enhanced platform delivers faster cycle times, wider platens, a precision greaseless clamp guided on linear bearings, and integrated auxiliary capability.
Maxima Servo is one of Milacron’s most energy-efficient machines. The servo-hydraulic machine provides up to 70% energy savings over similar machines, with a reduction in molding costs, maintenance costs, and heat load on the factory floor.
The high-value injection molding machine combines the advantage of a precise and accurate 2-platen mechanism with advanced, user-friendly controls. This platform delivers the next level of performance for two-platen designs while maintaining Milacron’s center tonnage build technology.
Cincinnati – CE
Milacron has excelled at manufacturing large tonnage injection molding machines for decades and is the global leader in the manufacture of these specialized machines. The Cincinnati is no exception. Proudly taking its name from Milacron’s home city of Cincinnati, The Cincinnati machine pays homage to all the Milacron employees past and present that have built Milacron into what it is today – the leader in plastics solutions, leading the way to what’s next in plastics.
The Cincinnati is a new large tonnage, true two-platen machine designed to meet the demands of the global automotive, appliance, and other large part molding markets. The Cincinnati product line expands on our industry-leading large machine technology with a platform that adds performance and a shorter footprint. The Cincinnati’s enhanced machine specifications and performance are powered by proven Fanuc servo motor power packs for improved reliability, higher max mold weights, faster clamp speeds, and added tonnage sizes. The improved machine layout and enhanced access to the eject and die areas make operation, maintenance, and servicing easier.
