LINCOLN, NEB. (July 30, 1 p.m. ET) — Injection molder HTI Plastics has purchased two machines and invested in new simulation software.

The company purchased two Krauss Maffei EX Series machines. The all-electric injection molding machines feature a closed-loop system to ensure cleanliness, a direct force transmission, and boast faster cycle times and increased productivity, according to the Munich, Germany,-based machine manufacturer.

One of the machines purchased by HTI, a 150-ton model, was on display at Krauss Maffei’s NPE 2012 booth. The machine traveled from Germany to the show in Orlando, Fla., before its installation at HTI’s headquarters in Lincoln.

HTI has also added new simulation software that tests customers’ designs in real-world environments before manufacturing. The software reduces the number of prototypes needed before production and offers a faster time to market, HTI said in a July 26 news release.

HTI manufactures products for the medical device, pharmaceutical, sporting goods and packaging markets. It is a division of Lincoln-based Plastic Cos. Enterprises.
