The Canadian Plastics Training Centre has acquired a new all-electric injection molding machine for use in its academic and industrial training programs. According to David Alcock, CPTC general manager, people in the school’s Injection Moulding Technician, Industrial Maintenance and Electro Mechanical programs, as well as those in continuing education and contract programs, will benefit from the acquisition of the machine, a Sumitomo SE 100D direct-drive all-electric.

“Plastics industry employers and employees have indicated that it is a real advantage for new and existing employees to be exposed to all-electric technology, as this is a significant and growing part of plastics operations,” said Alcock.

Jerry Boggs, executive vice-president, Sumitomo Plastics Machinery, says the Canadian market “is showing a steadily increasing shift to all electrics.”
