The Maxima series of IMMs has seen "significant" sales so far in 2015 says Milacron
Milacron says sales of its multi-component line of injection moulding machines have been “significant” in the first half of 2015, fuelled by the booming US automotive industry.
The company says its Maxima and Maxima G Series of large tonnage, servo, multi-component machines have become increasingly popular with moulders producing multicolour automotive lenses or large automotive parts.
“The excitement and response we’ve seen from our key customers in the automotive market in connection with our lineup of the Maxima Series machines has been impressive,” said Ron Krisanda, Chief Operating Officer – Advanced Plastic Processing Technologies. “Key customers are buying fleets of machines for their production lines and looking to Milacron to develop and integrate these systems.”
The Milacron automotive team recently completed the sale of a multi-machine order, including Maxima Series 3 and 4 Component machines for complex automotive components.
The company worked with the customer to custom design the machine, the work cell - including supplying and integrating all of the auxiliary equipment, and assisting in the layout of the facility.
The Maxima Series is reportedly one of Milacron’s most energy efficient machines, providing up to 60 percent energy savings over similar machines. The machine combines a two-platen centre tonnage mechanism with advanced controls. The Maxima is available in tonnages from 310 - 950, and the Maxima G Series, with tonnages from 1100 to 6600.
