Netstal press boasts electrical clamping

Nov. 3, 2016
This new injection molding machine features an electrical clamping unit with about 840 tons of clamping force.

Elios 7500 Targeted specifically for thin-wall packaging applications, this new injection molding machine from Netstal Maschinen AG, Näfels, Switzerland, features an electrical clamping unit with about 840 tons of clamping force — the 7,500 designation represents the machine's clamping force in kilonewtons. Available with two screw diameters, the machine features a hydraulic injection axis that is driven by two dynamic servo valves.

What's new? The Elios machine line and its newly developed electrical clamping unit. Netstal, a member of the KraussMaffei Group, will be launching Elios machines with lower clamping forces in 2017.

Benefits Fast cycle times, precise performance and energy efficiency. The electrical clamping unit's centrally aligned, five-point dual toggle lever optimally introduces force into the center of the mold installation space, resulting in uniform distribution of the clamping force. The robust design prevents deformation of the mold plates, while the very large pillar distance and large opening stroke allow for the installation of large-cavity and stack molds. The digital controller ensures positioning accuracy and shot weight consistency.
