A new all-electric injection machine designed for liquid silicone rubber was introduced last month by Sumitomo (SHI) Plastics Machinery (America) LLC, Norcross, Ga. The SE75DU model is a U.S.built, 83-ton press. Sumitomo says the direct-drive servo motors achieve extremely precise shot control with the low-viscosity material. The unit has a new screw and barrel and modified software for LSR, which are offered as an option on any SE-DU model. (770) 447-5430 • www.sumitomoPM.com
