Wittmann Battenfeld returns to large machine market
October 1, 2010 by Canadian Plastics
The new MacroPower two-platen machine range from Wittmann Battenfeld marks the company’s return to large machine manufacturing.
An 800-ton unit was launched in April, a 1,000-ton machine will be available in October, and a 1,600-ton unit will be available in 2011.
The MacroPower line is designed to blend a small footprint, speed, modularity, precision and cleanliness.
The linear guide system of the moving platen ensures a clean mold space and maximum precision in mold protection.
The units reach high speed by means of fast movements, minimal locking and high-pressure build-up times.
Additionally, the units offer easy mold insertion from the rear of the machine. An extended safety gate stroke at the rear, combined with tie-bars kept at below-average length, allows insertion of bulky molds in most cases without a tie-bar-pulling device.
