A new two-shot all-electric machine fitted with nine servomotors comes from French injection press maker and multi-injection specialist Billion, distributed here by Oak Tree Consulting LLC, Dundee, Mich. Introduced at K 2007 last month in Dusseldorf, the Select Multi series is said to be faster, quieter, more accurate, and more compact than the firm's hydraulic and hybrid presses. It uses ball-screws for ejection and nozzle touch (4 tons of force) and planetary roller screws for injection and clamping, where higher forces are applied. The machine also features closed-loop clamp-force control. Initial models will be from 75 to 150 tons. Tel: (734) 529-5352 . www.oaktreellc.com
