BATAVIA, OHIO (Feb. 2, 2:45 p.m. ET) — Milacron LLC is adding production of its Magna Servo injection presses to the United States.

Ferromatik Milacron India Ltd., the company’s plant in Ahmedabad, India, developed the Magna Servo line, and has produced the machines since 2008. The Cincinnati-based company has been importing those presses since 2008.

Officials cited increased North American demand for the decision to also build the line in Batavia. Management expects to add jobs at the Ohio assembly plant.

The Magna Servo gains a higher level of energy efficiency by using a variable-speed electric servomotor to drive a fixed-volume gear pump. The servomotor allows the pump to deliver only as much oil as is needed for each stage of the process, and then stop if no additional power is needed.

“Servo-driven pumps are giving new life to otherwise outdated hydraulic technology,” said Brian Bish, Milacron’s hydraulic machine product manager. He said the machines are similar in price to standard hydraulic machines, but provide almost as much energy savings as all-electric presses.

Milacron offers Magna Servo presses in clamping forces from 125-400 tons. The Magna Servo complements the Maxima Servo hydraulic line of large-tonnage presses. Milacron will show both machines at NPE 2010 in Orlando, Fla., April 1-5.
