Niigata press uses less space, creates less noise
JN1200H Niigata’s new two-platen, 1,200-ton machine has a servo-hydraulic-powered clamping mechanism and all-electric injection unit. It can inject material at speeds as slow as 0.1mm per second and is adjustable and controllable in 0.01mm increments up to the maximum speed of 160mm per second. In Japan, the machine is known as the JN1080H, which is pictured; the numbers reference its clamping force in metric tons. In the U.S., the machines are distributed by DJA.
What’s new? The machine, which Niigata showed off in June at an open house for its newly expanded Technical Center in Niigata City, Japan.
Benefits Efficiency, repeatability and highly precise injection-speed control. With its two-platen clamp design, the machine also conserves space; the 33-foot, 8-inch machine takes up about as much room as Niigata’s more traditional, 720-ton toggle design. Featuring low- friction guides, it is very accurate and smooth, and produces little noise.
