Maxima MM


Maximized for Large Part Production


Description

Maximized for large part production, Milacron’s Maxima MM hydraulic injection molding machines offer a reduced footprint, using 10% to 20% less floor space than comparable machines, creating more profit per square foot. The machines can be configured for various applications by combining a large range of clamp and injection units with a selection of optional pumping packages.

Adding value through multi-material technology, Maxima MM is designed to be easily adapted to support your application needs and handle next generation products with modularity. Maxima MM machines enable processors to realize the added value from functional integration, parts consolidation, assembly reduction, increased productivity, and reduced costs.

Specs

Clamp

Tonnage Is Built Directly Behind The Mold

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

Strong and Rigid Clamp

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Precision ways reduce misalignments affecting screw pick-up and cylinder leaks.
  • Clean and clear access to the purge area on operator and non-operator sides of the machine.
  • Powered injection unit swivel enables quick and easy access to maintain the screw tip or remove/install feed screws.
  • Separate injection base and transition base facilitates shipping and installation.

 

A wide selection of injection units and screw geometry are available. This means application specific solutions for every material formulation and plasticizing rate, including:

  • High performance, high throughput
  • Lower melt temperatures
  • Better mixing and homogenization
  • Wear resistant protection

Controls

Precision Control Technology For All Applications

The MOSAIC Control is the high-performance control system that controls and communicates all machine functions and related parts producing processes. MOSAIC Control provides improved reliability, performance, and user- friendliness to keep your process in control.

  • Individual forward and retract manual movement keys for each axis.
  • Factory programmable buttons for added options.
  • Logical grouping and separation of the machine function and manual operator keys.
  • Swing-arm mount can be optimally positioned for each operator, allowing for an unobstructed view of the mold area.

Mosaic Control Features

  • 15 Inch Diagonal Screen
  • TFT Flat Panel
  • Touch Screen (Analog, Resistive) Dual Intel Processors
  • Swing Arm Mount
  • IP65 Protection (against dirt and contaminants)

Mosaic Operator Screen Features

Options

Easy Mold Loading Access

Automatic tie bar retraction (optional) enables quick installation of bulky molds and low overhead crane situations. Reduces set-up to a fraction of the usual time.

High Performance Injection

MAXIMA MM machines are available with higher performance injection options capable of substantially higher injection rates. High performance options include:

  • Accumulator assisted injection for high speed injection rates.
  • High efficiency AC electric extruder drive provides independent and simultaneous clamp and extruder operation for reduced cycle time and greater energy savings.

 

Nozzle Shutoff Valve

The optional hydraulically powered rotary nozzle shut-off valve prevents material from flowing into the mold runner system while the screw is rotating and the clamp is opening during independent operation.
