Early in 2019, Absolute Haitian Corp. of Worcester, Mass., began making the upgraded Jupiter III (JU III) two-platen, servo-hydraulic injection molding machine available to the U.S. and Canadian markets.
The JU III is available in clamping forces ranging from 506 to 7,418 tons, is ideal for molding large parts such as trash bins, crates, and automotive and appliance parts, according to the company.
The third-generation JU III upgrades make the two-platen design more useful for a wider range of applications. Benefits include faster cycle times, higher precision, a smarter controller, lower costs and easier maintenance.
The clamp design has been upgraded with a simpler, more reliable and precision design, Absolute Haitian officials said. Molders will see 10 percent improvement in cycle times, 10 percent improvement in braking speeds, increased tie bar spacing in presses of 1,461- to 3,709-ton models, and a simpler, more reliable design since the tie bar adjustment oil cylinder has been eliminated and the tie bar adjustment and mold breakaway functions are performed by the high-pressure clamping cylinder.
The improved injection unit gives a 10-20 percent increase in pump power for better pressure and speed. A new high-drive servo system drives a faster injection response. A swiveling injection unit comes on all model sizes, for easy maintenance.
Absolute Haitian is the exclusive sale and service unit in the United States and Canada for injection presses made in China by Haitian International Holdings Ltd.
