FerromatikThe second-generation Elektron 50
Ferromatik Milacron has announced it will augment its presence at K 2013 later this year with a travelling roadshow, demonstrating a hybrid F 80 and an all-electric Elektron 50.
The machines will spend several days in one of four countries across Europe in the technical centres of local offices in Spain, Italy, Denmark, and the UK. Visitors will get a chance to see demonstrations of medical and consumer goods applications, along with expert presentations.
“The roadshow gives us a chance to introduce our machines in smaller, more personal venues, and allows our customers to engage with us directly in their own locale,” said Gerold Schley, Managing Director at Ferromatik Milacron and Vice President of Milacron China.
The modular F-Series can be configured as an all-electric, hydraulic, or hybrid machine. The F 80 on the tour has been set up as a hybrid machine: clamping and plasticising are electrically-driven, while ejection, carriage movement, and injection itself are powered by hydraulics. The machine has a clamping force of 800kN. It is equipped with an Advanced Performance APh 40 injection unit, and offers 470x470mm tie-bar spacing. It features a 64-cavity mould from Schöttli, and will demonstrate the production of syringe protectors with a cycle time of 5.8 seconds. The parts have a shot weight of 41.6g.
The roadshow will also mark the debut of the second-generation Elektron in Spain, Italy, Denmark, and the UK. Ferromatik Milacron states the all-electric machine series features a new look and controls. The touring Elektron 50, with 500kN clamping force, will be outfitted with an international size 120 injection unit and will produce toy building blocks made from a new biopolymer, Terez-Naturegran PV 6930, on a 20-cavity mould.
There is no charge for registration for the Ferromatik Milacron roadshow and spaces are still available. Those wishing to attend the UK event in Chesterfield on 16th–17th April 2013 should email email@example.com.
