Milacron LLC made a multiple-machine sale to an automotive molder, including the Maxima Series three-and four-component machines.
Milacron customized the machines for the customer, which the machinery maker did not identify.
The Cincinnati-based machinery maker reports a “significant number” of Maxima press sales in the first half of 2015. Milacron's service technicians handle onsite installation of electricity, water, air and Milacron chillers, conveyor systems and robots.
Maxima production illustrates Milacron's global reach, and its “One Milacron” motto. The clamps are made in Milacron's plant in Batavia, which does final assembly. Milacron's Ferromatik plant in Malterdingen, Germany, builds the parallel injection units on multi-component Maximas. Mold-Masters' iM2 integrated hot runner temperature controllers often are installed.
Shawn Reilley, vice president and general manager of injection presses, said Milacron achieves “best-in-class lead times.”
“With Milacron's Ohio manufacturing facilities, conveniently located in the heart of the U.S. auto industry, Milacron is able to provide lead times and delivery schedules that are unmatched by the competition,” Reilley said. “At times, Milacron is topping the competition's delivery dates by up to eight weeks.”
The Maxima series of large-tonnage multi-component presses are gaining ground for molding multicolor automotive lenses or large automotive parts, the company said.
Milacron is based in Cincinnati.
