Mike Sansoucy, Vice President Sales Injection, Americas proclaimed, “We wanted to go big this year at the show.” Sansoucy elaborated, “If you’re looking for a large injection molding machine, with a large tonnage requirement, for molding a large part, there’s only one supplier that excels in this range – Milacron. We regularly manufacture large molding machines in the 1000 plus ton range. No other injection machine manufacturer can match us in large tonnage experience.”
Milacron CEO Tom Goeke added, “I echo Mike’s excitement, the Cincinnati is a beast! We’re showing a 2250 ton machine and have a customer order currently in production for a 6600 ton Cincinnati machine. Our Injection team wanted to bring it to the show but I had to draw the line, we need space to show all of our other brands’ technologies!”
