Large hybrid electric machines ready for U.S.
These units have four direct-drive motors for injection. The motors were developed by Mitsubishi specifically for injection machines and are coupled directly to the ballscrews, eliminating the need for drive belts and pulleys. A separate AC servomotor drives screw recovery and plastication, and another servo handles part ejection. Two AC servos with belt drives operate clamp traverse at speeds up to 1.3 times faster than MHI's hydraulic models. Clamp tonnage is built up by two servos driving a hydraulic pump system. Both machines also have the MAC-VIII control system and a 12-in. LCD touchscreen. Tel: (630) 693-4880 * PTDirect 879NZ
