WEDNESDAY NPE 2018 : THE PLASTICS SHOW SHOW DAILY NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY Working for a better future Customized recycling technology for the plastics converting industry. It will not only satisfy, but also inspire. MEMBER OF NEXT GENERATION GROUP S:GRAN SHREDDER-FEEDER-EXTRUDER COMBINATION NPE Orlando May 7–11, 2018 West Hall E, booth W7263 New Electric and Hybrid Injecঞon Machines, and a 'Sneak Peek' at More to Come Absolute Haiঞan Corp. | Booth W143 Four new models of economically priced in- jecঞon machines boast enhanced clamp and injecঞon specs, while also offering energy savings. Absolute Haiঞan, the exclusive U.S. and Canadian representaঞve for Ningbo Hai- ঞan Machinery Co. of China, is puমng these new presses—two of them available now and two sঞll at the preview stage of develop- ment—through their paces here at NPE2018. Making its debut in the Americas is the new Zhafir Jenius Series for large-part preci- sion molding (506 to 3709 U.S. tons). Aimed parঞcularly at automoঞve molders, the JE series combines an all-electric injecঞon unit with a servo-hydraulic, two-platen clamp. The end result is said to combine energy efficiency, small footprint and greater re- peatability—less than 0.1% variaঞon in part weight from cycle to cycle. It also allows for screw recovery during clamp opening or closing. See a 731-tonner mold a 22.57-oz. automoঞve grille from PP with 19% mineral filler in 60 sec. Part removal is handled by an integrated top-entry robot from Sepro. Also new is a fast-cycling version of the Zhafir Zeres electric machine with integrated hydraulics for core pulls, ejectors and nozzle touch. This "2S" version for high-speed appli- caঞons has a redesigned clamp and injecঞon unit and more compact design with linear guides replacing ঞebars. And it's priced to make a precise electric machine affordable for cycle ঞmes as fast as 4 sec. The line ex- tends from 44 to 1500 tons. At the show, a 505-ton model SE4500 2S molds a thin-wall PP container in six caviঞes (114-g shot) in a 5.5-sec cycle. Side-entry automaঞon is sup- plied by sister company Absolute Robot Inc. The other two machines are previews of what's to come. There's a sneak peek at the third generaঞon of the Haiঞan Mars servo- hydraulic line, the MAIII. The first model, a 192-ton MA1700 III, will become available in the Americas late in the year, with addiঞonal sizes available in 2019. But you can see it run here in Orlando, producing a thick-wall tumbler in two caviঞes from Eastman's Tritan copolyester. The 6.35-oz. shot runs in 70 sec. What's notable, according to Absolute Haiঞan, is that this mold would normally require a 300-ton machine, but the generous ঞebar spacing and robust clamp design of the MAIII enabled the tumbler mold to run in the 192-tonner. Another preview from Absolute Haiঞan is the third generaঞon of the all-electric Venus Series. It boasts upgrades to the clamp design, including "the industry's most generous ঞebar spacing," according to the company, and in- creased injecঞon-pressure capacity, as well as an open base to improve access to the part-drop area. Molders get an advance look at what will be the first model available later this year, a 101-ton VE900 III, running an eight-cavity mold for a medical in-dwelling needle body of cellulose acetate proprionate (0.035-oz. shot) in 10.5 sec. The Venus III series will range from 45 to 899 tons. absolutehaiঞ | (508) 459-5372 New All-Electric Shule Blow Molder from Uniloy FGH Systems Inc. | Booth W3631 and Milacron Booth including Cimcool, DME, Mold-Masters and Uniloy | Booth W2703 Milacron is exhibiঞng one of the third gener- aঞon of its all-electric shu•le machines in the booth of its representaঞve, FGH Sys- tems. From this M-Series, introduced in late 2016, FGH is showing the M12.52ED, a double-sided press with 12-metric-ton clamp, and 520-mm shu•le stroke. It is equipped with ah 4 × 100-mm extrusion head producing 14-oz. personal-care bo•les in eight caviঞes. FGH designed and built the mold and conversion package to accept exisঞng "blow-and-drop" molds for in- machine deflashing using an adapter plate, new transfer arms and deflashing punches. | (973) 625-8114 | (513) 536-2000 58
