Newer electric machine designs and technology today have motors and drives with more power capability than ever before. But while an electric machine being overmatched has become a very infrequent issue (less than 1%), there are still cases where the combination of part design and resin types can cause the injection motor to become overloaded. If there’s some uncertainty about this possibility in a given situation, machinery manufacturers including Milacron frequently have some alternative design combinations to address the issue. If you have a concern, you should share the details up front with your machine manufacturer.
