User-friendly vertical beam injection moulding machine

Austria – At K 2016 Maplan will present its completely revised machine design.

Machines on show will have the high-quality look and the new C6000.web and C600.web controllers. Among the exhibits is the fully-hydraulic Maplan MTF 1500/250 from its new MTF-range.

Injection Moulding Machine

User-friendly vertical beam injection moulding machine

Maplan says this vertical beam injection moulding machine is user-friendly and ergonomic. With an operating height of 935 mm, it is more accessible and this “one-piece design” enables the machine to be transported without the need to have the hydraulics or the injection unit removed. Only the switch cabinet should be removed, making the relocating of the machine within the production site easy. The new concept for the machine’s clamping unit has been optimised with FEM analyses to ensure more rigidity with minimal plate bending and high plate parallelism. Enlarged, double-acting fast stroke cylinders can now move even massive tools better and quieter. The 680 mm-space between the tie-bars provide more scope for automation solutions. Its switch cabinet has an integrated cooling device to allow for reliable control components with a long service life. The 250 machine supplements the 3,200kN version thanks to its injection volume of 1,500 to 2,500 cm3.

Other machines on show are an optimised 3,000kN MHF 700D/300 horizontal machine and a vertical MTTF-C 30.
