In a move to further expand its hot runners and controller customers, Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. has opened state-of-the-art, automated manufacturing line at its Luxembourg facility.

This is the third straight year that Bolton, Ont.-based Husky has made what it calls a “significant investment” in new manufacturing equipment to support its base of hot runner and controller customers. In January of this year, Husky said in an earlier statement, it began producing hot-runner manifolds on one of the most advanced automated manufacturing lines in the industry.

“As our global customer base for hot-runner and controller systems continues to grow so does the complexity of the molded parts for which we help find solutions,” said Stafano Mirti, Husky’s president of hot runners and controllers. “I’m very excited about where we are taking our business and how this significant technology investment will enable us to support our customers and help them to grow their businesses. Our new manufacturing line will enable shorter lead times and provide even more capability to produce highly repeatable manifolds of the best quality.”

Husky currently produces hot runners and controllers on three continents in more than 54,000 square meters of manufacturing space. Additional investments are planned for hot runner manufacturing in its U.S. and China facilities, the company said.
