One new product that didn’t make it into this month’s report on the Fakuma show in Germany was a series of Ultra injection units for EX all-electric presses from KraussMaffei Corp., Florence, Ky. Designed for thin-wall containers, they provide injection speeds up to 600 mm/sec. At the show, an EX 160-750 press molded IML containers with 0.5-mm wall thickness and a flow-length to wall-thickness ratio of 300:1 in a 3.8-sec cycle time.
