Nissei Plastic Industrial Co. Ltd. has debuted a compact vertical injection press, the ST20-2V, with 22 tons of clamping force.
The hybrid press is designed for molding automotive parts and electronic components. It is based on the ST series of hydraulic vertical presses, which incorporate Nissei's X-Pump.
The press achieves 40 percent energy savings, with twice the response time, compared with Nissei's hydraulic vertical presses. Injection speed can be controlled in a stable manner in ultraslow speeds. It is 1.3 times faster than Nissei hydraulic vertical presses.
The tie-barless clamping mechanism is well-suited to insert molding. Nagano, Japan-based Nissei's U.S. unit, Nissei America Inc. is in Anaheim, Calif.
