JSW Plastics Machinery, Lake Zurich, Ill., has added new medium-to-large sizes to its AD Advantage Series all-electric molding machines. New models of 550 to 850 metric tons have been added to the line of 35 to 2500 m.t. Design improvements include cutting dry-cycle times by 20%, while newly developed injection units are smaller and lighter to improve acceleration and deceleration, reducing plasticating time by 10%. In a test comparison with a similar sized hydraulic machine, a 935-g PP case was molded on the AD machine with a 27% faster cycle and 60% less energy consumption. For the first time, JSW is offering closed-loop feedback control of clamp force as a standard feature. Bimetallic cylinders are standard in sizes from 33 to 200 oz.
