Milacron LLC announced improvements to the all-electric Roboshot injection molding machine, as the Roboshot a-SiA Series now has a new, optional two-piece platen.
According to Milacron, this design is better than the standard platen machined from a single casting. The high rigid, two-piece configuration allows for larger molds and easier setup. And it can be added or removed by the customer to meet molding specifications. Both features means Roboshots equipped with the two-piece platen offer more flexibility, Milacron said.
Other improvements include better toggle bushings to reduce wear of the toggle and cross-head pins. A new tiebar bushing improves lubrication and reduces grease consumption.
On the injection unit, a high-precision pressure control gives reduces noise and enhances molding stability.
