Maplan GmbH, a member of the Starlinger Group, presented three injection molding machines for running liquid silicone rubber and thermoplastic elastomers, and rolled out a new controller, at Fakuma.
Maplan showed a horizontal press, the MHF400/200 edition, with a SILjector injection unit designed for LSR.
The company also showed two machines for molding TPE: a vertical-clamp MTF220/160editionS and a MTTF100P/40C in a C-frame design, for corner overmolding.
Officials of the company in Ternitz, Austria, report inquiries for the machines from several markets, including automotive (window overmolding, door seals and other parts), protective masks for the military, cable and plug assembly for the electrical sector, and bellows and other technical parts.
All Maplan machines for molding TPE are equipped with standard CoolDrive II drives.
