Ferromatik Milacron at Swiss Plastics

 Ferromatik Milacron at  Swiss Plastics
At Swiss Plastics in Lucerne from January 17 – 19, 2012 Ferromatik Milacron will present the Elektron, the most recent addition to the international Milacron all-electric machine portfolio.

The Elektron is designed for a full range of standard applications and offers manufacturers a cost effective path into all-electric injection molding.

This year at Swiss Plastics the smallest model in the Elektron series will be presented. The Elektron 50 with a clamping force of 500 kN, will be equipped with an international size 120 injection unit and a three-zone screw with a diameter of 25 mm. The machine will demonstrate production of measuring cups for laboratory use on a two-cavity mold from Swiss company Brac-Werke AG. Made from polypropylene, the cups have a shot weight of 5.6 g and a part weight of 2.8 g.

"The Elektron provides a flexible molding solution for both newcomers and experienced injection molders. If energy efficiency is as important as price, then this machine is an ideal choice," said Mauro Busato, General Manager for Ferromatik Milacron in Switzerland. "We see a lot of potential for the ELEKTRON in the Swiss market."

The Elektron is available in eight sizes, ranging from 500 to 3,500 kN, with seven choices of injection unit (international sizes 55 to 1,540). This makes for a total of 23 possible combinations, each with a choice of three different screw diameters. In addition, the Elektron can be further customized from a list of options for individual molding requirements.
