Canada's first injection molding machine, shown above, was shipped in 1930 to Rubberset in Gravenhurst, Ontario. It was built by Berlin-based Eckert & Ziegler. The machine displayed at Plast-Ex 2007 was loaned by the Museum of Science & Technology in Ottawa, Ontario. Plast-Ex marked the 50th anniversary of plastics shows in Canada. Formerly organized by the Society of the Plastics Industry of Canada, the Toronto-based shows now are sponsored by the Canadian Plastics Industry Association in Mississauga, Ontario.
Great green injection machine
