Kawaguchi’s DVH digital hydraulic control system incorporated on the KX Series injection molding machines increases piston pump efficiency, reduces the heat generated by the pumping system and reduces the volume of hydraulic oil by up to 40 percent compared with previous models.

Overall power consumption is also reduced by up to 50 percent over previous models.

Wider platens allow larger molds to be fitted, while the clamping mechanism is more rigid for precise, reliable clamping.

In the PC-based EZ-2000 control, a 32-bit processor and a multiple CPU distributed control result in high functionality and high-speed processing. Mold set-up memory is increased to 120 sets of data.

Reliable, economical vertical injection molding machine

Van Dorn Demag’s Newbury E Series is a highly productive vertical injection molding machine suitable for low-pressure PVC operations and is able to handle a wide variety of basic insert molding applications such as wiring harnesses, cord sets, plugs, grommets and connectors.

The machine is an enhancement of Van Dorn Demag’s Newbury model 30ARS.

An updated Sigmatek control system provides basic control capacity and includes monitors and alarms, offering a user-friendly operator interface.

The straight hydraulic C-frame clamp provides 35 tons of clamp force in a simple design to ensure ease of maintenance and minimize spare parts requirements.
