KraussMaffei adds a speed option to GX hydraulic unit

Issue: April 2018

GX KraussMaffei is offering a new feature on its GX series of two-platen hydraulic injection molding machines to make them more efficient at manufacturing large packaging and logistics products.

What’s new? The speed option, which permits an injection speed of up to 700mm per second, depending on the type of injection unit. Additionally, enhanced parallel movements on the plasticizing side via the electrically driven plasticizing unit support the shorter cycle times. The GX 900-12000 that will be on display in Orlando also has faster clamping speeds of up to 0.45 second. It will be producing 10.6-gallon buckets in a two-cavity mold using an in-mold labeling process with cycle times of less than 14 seconds.

Benefits Fast, efficient and cost-effective manufacturing of large components for the packaging and logistics industries.
