A brand-new all-electric, continuous-extrusion blow molder from Uniloy Milacron Srl in Italy is available here from Moldpro Machinery & Systems Inc., Burlington, Ont. The UMS 200-D EZ double-sided shuttle can accommodate six-cavity molds at 110-mm center distance. It has two 22-ton clamps and a stroke of 710 mm. All movements are actuated by brushless motors, so no hydraulics are needed. Average power consumption for all machine movements (not including heaters or screw rotation) is around 2.5 kW, resulting in energy savings up to 70% compared with a comparable hydraulic machine, according to Moldpro. Cleaner and quieter operation are other advantages cited. The machine can utilize Uniloy’s IML technology and can be configured for up to seven-layer coextrusion.
