Demag Ergotech USA this year will expand the size range of its Ergotech EL-EXIS S series of injection molding machines, from 60-350 tons in clamping force, the company announced at Plastec West 2001, held Jan. 8-10 in Anaheim, Calif.
Demag Ergotech announced it will add three new clamping-force sizes. Previously, the range went from 100-250 tons.
EL-EXIS machines use electric drive to run screw rotation and mold opening. Injection and three secondary motions — core pull, ejection and carriage movement — are powered by an accumulator-driven hydraulic system. The company said the machines offer high precision and quiet operation with low energy consumption.
Demag Ergotech is based in Strongsville, Ohio.
