Tech Mold East adds Husky, Milacron machines for multimaterial medical molding

Tech Mold Inc. has expanded capacity and capabilities at its mold/process validation technical center, Tech Mold East (TME).

The machine, put into service in July, is also equipped with several high-performance enhancing features and options that provide value-added support to better meet customers' requirements.

Tech Mold East will also install a new all-electric Milacron NT330 Powerline Maxima injection molding machine in October. This machine is adaptable for both single- and two-shot capabilities, and has an 8.0-oz primary shot size and a 7.6-oz second shot size, as well as a 900-mm rotary turntable.
