MONTREAL (Nov. 19, 1:10 p.m. ET) — Absolute Haitian Corp. is introducing its multi-material injection molding presses to North America, an official said at Expoplast 12, held Nov. 14-15 in Montreal.

“The entry barrier to North America is high but the market needs an affordable, precise multi-material machine,” said Absolute Haitian vice president Nate Smith in an interview.

Absolute Haitian will offer machines in the 135-1,574 ton range.

The company, based in Worcester, Mass., is the U.S. affiliate of Chinese injection press maker Ningbo Haitian Machinery Co. Ltd.

Absolute Haitian announced at NPE2012 in April that it is opening a technical center in Parma, Ohio, to handle increased business. It will complement an existing technical center in Chicago.

The multi-material machine series goes by the Iapetus name. It comes standard with a turntable and wide or narrow mold platens. A customized rotating shaft option is well suited to mold testing but is not designed for mass production. The series features servo drives to save energy.
