The ClassiX series of hydraulic injection presses from KraussMaffei Corp., Florence, Ky., has been expanded with a new model that is now the largest in the line. A new 385-ton press, launched at the recent Fakuma show in Germany, expands the range, which starts at 38 tons. The line is designed for affordability in applications that don’t require a lot of customization. ClassiX is a modular platform with a wide range of clamp and injection unit combinations. It features a short clamp and compact machine design. The cantilevered clamp is accessible from three sides to permit easy collection of parts. KraussMaffei also extended its LRX linear robot series with larger models to handle payloads of 55 to 220 tons. The LRX linear previously handled 11 to 33 lb. (859) 283-0200 • www.kraussmaffei.com
