KraussMaffei is expanding its product portfolio in the all-electric injection molding machine segment of the AX series. The company has added two new sizes in the clamping force range of 4,500 and 5,500 kN and also added three new machine models for the hydro-mechanical twin-platen injection molding machine in the GX series. With these additions, KraussMaffei increases its product portfolio in the mid-size machine segment between 4,000 and 9,000 kN. The marketing of the new products is expected to begin at Fakuma 2014.
"Our customers are increasingly asking for high-performance, energy-efficient and simultaneously space-saving solutions. With this in mind we are working continuously on the expansion and continued development of our broad portfolio of all-electric, hydraulic and hybrid injection molding machines. With five series and more than 50 different base machine models, we offer our customers application-specific solutions for every production challenge. With this diversity we are an industry leading system supplier, said Hans Ulrich Golz, president of the injection molding machinery segment of the KraussMaffei Group.
