New to the AX series product group are the AX 450 and the AX 550, with which KraussMaffei can offer all-electric injection moulding machines expanded for greater clamping force of 4,500 kN or 5,500 kN.
"We are noticing an increasing demand for all-electric injection molding machines with large locking forces. The new AX 450 and AX 550 perfectly complement our product line of all-electric standard machines. Thus our customers can take full advantage of the AX series with regard to precision and energy efficiency in the large machine range", says Jochen Mitzler, Head of Strategic Product Management for KraussMaffei.
All-electric AX series injection molding machines feature resource-efficient manufacturing with high repeatability. They earn an energy efficiency rating of 9+ according to the Euromap 60.1 standard. Against comparable hydraulic injection molding machines, energy consumption is often reduced by 50 percent or greater
Incorporating precise dynamic drive technology, large platens with rolling linear guides, integrated robotics, precise injection screw drives and a comprehensive options list, the machines provide customers with a competitive edge in the high tonnage sector.
