Plastics processors everywhere have a new weapon for efficient machine maintenance. Milacron developed the industry’s first Interactive Technical Manual™ (ITM) – a convenient tool for laptops and tablet computers that makes it easier than ever to keep equipment operating at peak performance.

Schematic Display

Milacron’s ITM gives machine technicians immediate access to critical, detailed information about their plant equipment with its easy, intuitive navigation via an HTML browser. The interactive schematics display a graphical representation of each functional cycle stage. Innovative troubleshooting flow diagrams assist technicians in determining which component is creating the problem, offer recommendations for resolving the issue and aid in determining the correct part number.

Instructional Videos

In addition, the ITM comes with training videos to help customers deal with another pressing need: the widening skills gap. The ITM’s instructional videos reduce training costs by offering insights into machine layout, operation and installation, preventative maintenance, the hydraulic circuit and electrical schematic, component overview and the machine control. Maintenance staff can easily identify a machine part number from the instructional videos, schematics and component images.


The ITM is icon-driven with extensive search capabilities, navigation and zoom. Currently standard on both the Magna T Servo and Maxima Servo injection product lines, it can also be customized to other Milacron injection molding machines.


Milacron supports all of their products with a great selection of aftermarket parts and services.
