Milacron's History

Entered The Plastics Market

For over 100 years, Milacron was an industry leader in CNC machinery and tooling. In 1968, however, we made our official entrance into the plastics industry. Since then, Milacron has been dedicated to providing our customers with the best plastic processing equipment and solutions.

Expanded Product Offerings

After a little over 10 years in the plastics industry, Milacron brought over a dozen new products to the market including the newly developed all-electric drive injection molding machine.

Milacron Acquired Ferromatik

Ferromatik is a leader in plastic injection molding machinery in Europe. This acquisition not only increased our product offerings but established Milacron in European markets. Two years later, we continued to grow the Ferromatik brand by establishing production in India.

Milacron Acquired DME

This year marked our entrance into the mold technologies industry with the acquisition of DME. DME is a leader in tooling technology with unrivaled capabilities to assist customers in selecting the correct melt delivery systems, mold configurations, and thermal (cooling) systems to ensure parts will perform in fit, form, and function.

Introduced Servo-Hydraulic 2-Platen Design

After years of development, we introduced a new servo-hydraulic 2-platen machine design. This technology offers more efficiency. reliability, and precision, enabling our customers to produce more while lowering operating costs.

Milacron Acquired Mold-Masters

Mold-Masters is a global leader in the plastics industry and is one of the world’s leading suppliers of hot runner technology and co-injection systems. This acquisition allowed us to increase product offerings to our customers.

Hillenbrand and Milacron

In 2019, Hillenbrand officially acquired Milacron. This marked a new era for our company, enhancing our ability to serve customers and develop new innovative technologies.
