DUSSELDORF, GERMANY — Victor Taichung Machinery Works Co. Ltd. of Taiwan has added lower-tonnage models to its 3-year-old Euro injection press line, first introduced at K'95.
The line has been renamed the Vr-range.
The new clamping-force sizes are 50-250 tons. The total range of the Vr line is 50-550 tons.
In the United States, Victor Taichung machines are sold under the Fortune brand name by Fortune International Inc. of Somerset, N.J.
The company said the machines conform to European safety standards.
Vr-range machines have a five-point toggle clamp, with self-lubricating bushings.
The hydraulic unit uses a variable displacement pump and two flow control valves that provide only the volume required for each cycle sequence, reducing energy.
Victor Taichung offers the Vr press with its new V8000 controller. A semiclosed-loop controller is standard; a fully closed loop is optional.
The company is based in Taichung, Taiwan.
