Milacron to exhibit advanced technologies and plastics solutions at NPE 2018

Plastic processing equipment maker Milacron is set to exhibit its advanced technologies and plastics solutions at this year’s NPE event in Orlando, Florida, which will be held between 7 May and 11 May.

At the event, the company will exhibit its injection and extrusion machines, Mold-Masters hot runners and control systems, DME mold components and solutions, Uniloy blow molding machines, Kortec co-injection technologies and Milacron 4.0 IIoT solutions.

The new Milacron-Fanuc Roboshot 500 system for packaging applications will be exhibited at the event. 

With advanced precise process control, high-speed injection and consistent repeatability features, the new system has an increased tonnage option up to 558 metric tonnes and supports larger molds with tie bar spacing of 91.94cm.

The new system can mold a detergent cap with 24-cavity mold at six second cycle times. The cell features a Mold-Masters Master-Series valve gated hot runner and TempMaster M2 hot runner temperature control system and DME mold components.

Milacron will also exhibit Uniloy injection blow molding series (IBS), which includes a complete line of 3-station injection blow systems with clamp forces between 64 metric tonnes and 81 metric tonnes.

Uniloy technology offers high tolerance injection molded neck finish needed for multiple child-resistant and tamper-evident bottle closure designs.

Uniloy IBS 85 system can mold a 7.5g and 4-cavity medical tablet bottle with Kortec Co-injection barrier technology in 12 second cycle times.

In addition, the company will exhibit bio-resins, thermoplastic multi-shot molding solution and Maxima Performance Series for automotive applications.

Milacron CEO Tom Goeke said: “Milacron is a proud global company with locations all over the world but we’re uniquely equipped to serve our North American customers with excellent, on time parts availability, local field service technicians, and IIOT technologies to the degree our competitors simply cannot with their satellite North American locations.”
