Types of Plastic Injection Molding Machines
All types of injection molding machines are made up of two parts – an injection unit and a clamping unit. It sounds simple enough until you start talking about the wide-ranging needs of the end user. Different industries and indeed different applications require much different machines.
Fully hydraulic machines offer high clamping force that is needed for big part production.
All electric machines are perfect for short injection times and provide the best production cleanliness.
Hybrid machines have excellent energy efficiency and give you more freedom for innovative mold design.
- The ever popular tie-bar-less design allows for absolute freedom to the mold area for complex molds, rapid mold change and unobstructed robot movement.
- Lastly, vertical molding is perfect for overmolding inserts while offering a compact machine design.
Over the years, machines have been designed to fit every application that has presented itself in the injection molding industry.
