Gammaflux LP will supply its hot-runner temperature controllers to injection press manufacturer Milacron LLC under a private-label agreement announced Sept. 29.
Effectively immediately, Milacron will distribute the complete line of Gammaflux LEC and TTC hot-runner temperature controllers, as auxiliary equipment options on Milacron presses.
Milacron will use stand-alone Gammaflux controllers, and also plans to integrate the controls directly into its Mosaic machine control panels.
Mike Brostedt, Gammaflux market development director, said it's a good match between two U.S. firms. Gammaflux is based in Sterling. Milacron is based in Cincinnati and assembles machinery in nearby Batavia, Ohio.
“We see our agreement as a partnership between two strong American companies, joining forces to help plastics processors improve their molding operations,” Brostedt said.
Wayne Taylor, business manager of purchased products at Milacron, said the Gammaflux line “strengthens Milacron's strategy of being the premier supplier of solutions for the plastics industry.”
