KraussMaffei adds all-electric AX line models

Nov. 25, 2014

AX Series  This all-electric toggle line of injection molding machines from KraussMaffei adds two models, the AX 450 with 4500 kilonewtons (505 tons) and the AX 550 with 5500 kilonewtons (618 tons) of clamping force.

What's New?  Greater clamping force sizes in the AX Series.

Benefits  The MC6 control system features split-screen display for viewing production processes simultaneously and in parallel with actual value cycles — for the ability to trim cycle times. An "Eco" button lets users configure the AX for energy efficiency. Energy consumption is cut by 50 percent and cooling water consumption by 70 percent vs. a similar-sized hydraulic press.
