Magna Vertical

Rotary, Shuttle and Stationary Table Designs


Magna V Rotary

Magna V vertical clamp machines bring you every advantage for insert molding, making it easy to combine two materials and reduce assembly costs. From encapsulation of delicate electronic parts to over molding of plastic on metal for diverse automotive applications, Magna V also offers a reduction in post-molding operations, saving time and money.

Milacron’s Magna V machines can be configured for every possible insert molding application by combining a wide range of clamp, table and injection unit configurations. Vertical clamps with horizontal tables let gravity gently and easily do the work of holding single or multiple inserts. Open clamp designs with rotary and shuttle tables give the advantage of working with multiple molds and simultaneous operations including pre-molding, injection and post-molding operation. Simultaneous operations are easily automated for consistent quality, high productivity and high profitability.

Open Clamp Design for Easy Production and Automation

The clamp design is a robust vertical C-frame that is open in the front and on the sides.

  • No tie bars to interfere with inserts that extend beyond platens
  • Can use large rotary & shuttle tables for increased mold capacity with less floor space
  • Easy access for mold changing & plumbing
  • Easy access to molds for automation
