Autojectors Inc. has introduced new sizes of its Evolution vertical insert molding machines — clamping forces of 130 and 280 tons.
Despite the larger sizes, the presses retain their small footprint, which Autojectors claims is less than half the size of comparable tie-bar vertical presses. The 280-ton, C-frame Evolution 280 measures just 15 feet by 7 feet.
The C frame also gives a more open design, so customers can use larger molds and get easier access to mold cooling and electrical connections. For worker safety, an infrared light curtain comes standard.
Autojectors is a unit of Cincinnati-based Milacron Inc.
