The new 17-ton, hybrid servo-pneumatic MicroLIM liquid silicone injection machine comes from Wabash MPI, an ACS Group Co., Wabash, Ind. Suited to clean-room and medical applications, it’s designed for shot sizes from less than 1 cc up to 15 cc. Platen size is 9 x 9 in. A patented plunger design with “center shutoff” nozzle is said to provide accurate shot-size control. The injection head is easily removable for quick cleaning and changeover, suiting it to short runs.
