CINCINNATI, OH – February 5, 2020 – Milacron Injection Molding & Extrusion, a leading industrial technology company serving the plastics processing industry, is exhibiting an all-electric ROBOSHOT machine at MD&M West from February 11th to the 13th in Booth #4294.

Continuing the 1999 MD&M West introduction of ROBOSHOT LSR molding and growing LSR presence, Milacron will exhibit the latest generation of ALL-ELECTRIC Alpha 110iA ROBOSHOT LSR molding cell. Milacron is pleased to be able to show this combination of a large platen using a small 14mm, 9cc LSR injection unit integrated with an X20 SERVOMIX dosing pump, a cold runner system utilizing Flowset cavity balancing with a 2-cavity mold, and a Nexmover robotic demolding system by NEXUS Elastomer Systems GmbH. The 3.0 cc shot size will demonstrate the capability of tackling near micro-molding LSR applications.

Drawing on 60-years of continuous development, the centerpiece of the ROBOSHOT Alpha Series is its industry-leading reliable control. User-friendly, highly flexible sequencing and featuring all the standard interfaces, it delivers fast processing times and consistent parts quality. This ensures ultimate accuracy and exceptional reliability across all processes as well as highly precise motion, position and pressure control.
