Energy savings, precision, process consistency, clean and very quiet machine …
Since 1949, Billion have been producing hydraulic machines and are well known for their knowledge and accuracy in hydraulics. For a few years now, Billion started to propose hybrid machines in order to reduce energy consumption and increase machine productivity. Hybrid meant adding electrical screw drive on the injection unit and a converter on hydraulic pump but keeping the hydraulic force on clamping. Taking advantage of these experiences, Billion designed a full electric machine called SELECT. Accurate, reliable, silent, reactive, the range is now available from 40 to 600 Tonnes.
Multi-injection specialist, Billion naturally offers the Select range in multi-shot configuration.

Rejects: Increased productivity – Precision and consistency of the process from the 1st cycle leading to lower rejects.
100 % User friendly: Designed by, and for plastic processors. Select provides an immediate familiarity for injection moulding processors.
The plasticizing unit is the most sophisticated of all the parts composing a BILLION injection press. It is the result of over 60 years experience and daily observation.Particular care at all the stages of their design ensures our assemblies have an reputation in terms of material homogeneity and hourly plasticizing capacity. This is one of the main elements which sets our machines apart from other suppliers: Billion's signature.
Various adapted screw profiles ar available according the each type of application :
General purpose screw profile : Even though all screws seem to be alike visually, they do not offer the same levels of performance.Our general purpose profile matches 80% applications and is compatible with most thermoplastic materials. It guarantees excellent quality of the melt with one of the highest plasticizing rates. Twin flight barrier screw profile : Twin flight barrier screws have brought a proven answer to the requirements of very high plasticizing hourly rates without any impact on melt quality. Particularly used for polyolefin's (PP, PE) and PS, notably in packaging applications, they provide a much higher plasticizing rate for a given screw diameter, with the pressure and accuracy of a smaller diameter screw. They also enhance colouring agent dispersion.
The moulding of B.M.C. (Bulk Molding Compound) materials needs a specific equipment. Billion offers a complete package for this type of application :. Screw-cylinder assembly with special profile and bi-metallic treatment . Machine equipment : cold platens, mould heating zones and compression . Vertical stuffer designed to preserve the length of the fibres - Pressure regulated with servo-distributor in closed loop - Stuffer totally controlled from Dixit II machine control system - Designed to facilitate cleaning operations and make material changes easier
