Absolute Haitian says the electric molding machine it demonstrated in a work cell at K Show 2019 — Zhafir Zeres F — is now available in the U.S. and Canada.
The Worchester, Mass.-based company is the sales and service partner of Ningbo, China-based Ningbo Haitian Machinery Co., Ltd., which says it is the world’s largest supplier of plastics injection molding machinery, shipping about 32,000 machines in 2019.
The Zeres F is geared toward molders that want to enter the high-speed market but don’t have the production volumes or cycle time requirements to justify traditional high-speed machine configurations. It was shown at the K show in a production cell featuring a four-cavity lid with high-speed in-mold labeling.
Available from 169 to 506 tons, the Zeres F offers injection speeds up to 350 mm/second.
The machine’s other features include: electric technology proven since 2016; integrated hydraulics for core pulls; optional valve gates; ejectors and carriage movement, which eliminates the need for a separate hydraulic power unit and saves floor space; high-performance, abrasion-resistant screw and barrel with 25/1 L/D; linear rails for precise injection movement; and double-cylinder injection carriage with programmable nozzle contact force.
