Clamp

Strong and Rigid Clamp – Fast and Easy on the Molds

Maximize Clamp Speeds While Protecting Molds

  • MAXIMA MG has the fastest clamp in the industry and provides the best mold protection.
  • Closed loop speed and pressure control ensure consistent cycles.
  • Up to 3 clamp closing and 5 clamp opening speeds.
  • Closed loop pressure differential mold protection is provided for True Force Control.
  • Up to 3 mold protection stages are available.

Direct Acting Ram
During tonnage build, high pressure hydraulic oil in the cylinder platen pushes the Direct Acting Ram to build tonnage directly behind the mold.

  • Short stroke tonnage build using a small volume of oil to compress results in faster tonnage build time.
  • Reliable tonnage build. Only one piston to control, not four.
  • Centrally actuated tonnage force directly behind the mold provides symmetrically distributed clamp forces across the mold area.
  • Direct and even clamp force.
  • Simple and proven design, resulting in improved uptime.
  • Closed loop tonnage control enables part consistency and quality.
  • Reliable and durable.
  • Better alignment, assuring reduced mold wear.
  • Better part quality and higher productivity.

Injection

Precision Processing Features

  • Dual injection unit pull-in cylinders assure alignment and center-balanced force, while reducing the machine footprint.
