MILACRON INJECTION MOLDING MACHINES
The NEW Milacron Q-Series Injection Molding Machine Line – Two
Q-Series Machines, a 180T and 280T, Ran Live at Indiaplast
Milacron’s new Q-Series is the latest globally available servo-hydraulic
injection molding machine that builds on the success of the 2017 launch
of the Quantum injection machine line, but offers a number of
enhancements. With a tonnage range of 55 to 610 (50-500 KN), the
Q-Series is built to perform in a wide array of applications and
configurations. Based on Milacron’s highly touted, reliable and
in-demand Magna Toggle and F-Series machine lines, the Q-Series is a
true culmination of high efficiency, consistency, and globally
Q-Series has been designed to fit the high expectations of toggle
performance while providing an extraordinary value. Leveraging the use
of a servo motor in combination with hydraulic components, Q-Series
provides exceptional repeatability and energy savings. The clamp
kinematics provide enhanced velocities while delivering a smooth and
accurate operation. The clamp design provides for better tonnage
linearity allowing minimum tonnage to go lower than previous toggle
designs. The servo motor and hydraulic systems combine to deliver power
when it is needed, using less power when it is not. The eco-friendly
design generates savings in electrical power consumption, cooling
requirements, and lower maintenance cost.
The Q-Series is also available as part of Milacron’s Quick Delivery
Program (QDP) in Europe and North America and is part of the Milacron’s
2019 injection product refresh.
Cell Details – Q-Series 180T: Molded a PET medical vial,
32-cavities, total shot weight of 115.5 grams and a part weight of 3.6
grams, running at 7-second cycles.
Cell Details – Q-Series 280T: Molded a 100 ml PP cup with in-mold
labeling, 4+4 stack mold, total shot weight of 48 grams and a part
weight of 6, running at 6-second cycles.
All Milacron Injection Molding Machines and Extrusion Systems are
Milacron recognizes and embraces the importance and rapid adoption of
bio-resins in both injection molding and extrusion applications. The
entire Milacron injection line-up, as well as all Milacron Extrusion
machines, have successfully processed a wide range of bio-resins and are
ready to process the newest and most demanding resins.
Milacron India Showcases IIoT solution – M-Powered for India –

MOLD-MASTERS HOT RUNNER AND CONTROL SOLUTIONS
Mold-Masters Fusion Series G2 Automotive Hot Runner Solutions
Mold-Masters has rolled out many additions and enhancements to Fusion
Series G2, the drop-in system favored by the automotive industry for
high-quality large part production, which includes an expanded nozzle
range and waterless actuator technology. New for the Fusion Series G2
are the F3000 and F8000 nozzles, which extend the capabilities and
applications of this system to include shot sizes from <15g to over 5,000g. The F3000 has a shot capacity of <15g, which is ideal for smaller underhood components, technical automotive components and price sensitive packaging and consumer good applications. The F8000 increases the shot capacity of the system further than ever before to 5,000g by utilizing runner diameters up to 28mm. Nozzle lengths are also available that exceed 1m. F8000 has been developed to meet the processing requirements of common large automotive components like Fascias, Instrument Panels, Door Panels, and large white goods. Additionally, Fusion Series G2 systems will also be available with the new Waterless Actuator, which incorporates new Passive Actuator Cooling Technology (PACT); eliminating hose-plumbed cooling circuits allows for the actuators to facilitate faster mold changes and provide long-term performance reliability.
Maximized for uptime, the Fusion Series G2 hot runner system is
delivered completely pre-assembled and pre-plumbed, saving significant
set-up time to get you back into production right away. Incorporating
popular features like field replaceable heater bands ensures that any
maintenance is quick and easy.
