Automa of Italy has introduced the Apex AT 255D continuous extrusion shuttle machine with extended stroke and new controller. Compared with a previous shuttle model, the horizontal stroke has been increased to 255 mm to allow the use of molds with greater center distance. The new machine also features Automa’s new Advanced Architecture Machine Controller, which is based on an industrial PC with I/O modules connected via a CANopen fieldbus. The double-station unit runs up to four cavities and is intended for quick changeover of small cosmetic and food containers from 30 cc to 1 liter.
