An upgraded line of small all-electric machines first announced at the K 2004 show in Dusseldorf is now commercially available here. Battenfeld of America, South Elgin, Ill., rolled out an upgraded version of the EM line from 30 to 180 tons. Compared with the earlier EM line, prices have been reduced through an unusual cooperation between Battenfeld and Ferromatik Milacron Europe in Malterdingen, Germany, by which Ferromatik supplies certain components for the Battenfeld machines (the firms would not say which components). EM models have a five-point twin-toggle clamp, Battenfeld Unilog B4 control, and a special nozzle-touch unit with hydro-pneumatic drive of the nozzle-touch mechanism.
