Mold-Masters expands hot runner facility in India
The 10,000-square-foot plant was officially opened on August 31, and is located four kilometers from the company’s existing plant and about eight kilometers from Mold-Masters’ head office in Saibaba Colony. This facility will predominately manufacture the Fusion G2 system for the automotive and large part segments. The G2 product line is engineered in Europe and serviced by the Global MasterCARE team.
“As India’s injection molding market continues to grow, so, too, will the complexity of molded products the region produces,” said Hans Hagelstein, Mold-Masters vice president and general manager for Europe, Middle East, Africa and India. “With complex products come increasingly complex molds and an increased reliance on hot runners, which is where Milacron’s Mold-Masters brand excels.”
The Fusion G2’s drop-in, single-point connection design ensures easy installation, fast start-ups, reliable operation and user-friendly maintenance for automotive and medium-to-large-part molding applications. Improved features were recently added to the Fusion G2 line, Mold-Masters said, including extended nozzle lengths and types, valve pin intelligence with speed control and pin position monitoring, and new gate seats.
