Milacron Servo Hybrid Injection Molding Machines
Reduced maintenance and replacement cost, along with considerable energy savings.
Magna Toggle Servo (MTS) Hybrid Series
The MTS achieves 40-60% greater energy efficiency than a conventional hydraulic machine by coupling a permanent-magnet AC servo motor with a fixed gear pump. The machine's servo system allows the pump to deliver oil on demand as required for each stage of the injection process. As a result, the system requires less energy for part production and oil cooling and ejects less heat into the plant, creating cost savings that provide a faster return on investment compared to hydraulic platforms.

The number-one difference we find is that the operator on the hydraulic machine has the tendency to set the ejector positions beyond the mold eject mechanism travel capability.
Newer electric machine designs and technology today have motors and drives with more power capability than ever before.
Machines put into service over 20 years ago are still in operation.
With good maintenance and proper operation, the annual cost has been under $500 per year.
Normal items such as grease, screw tip assembly, heater bands and thermocouples.
Belt technology has advanced over the 30 years of all-electric technology, and today’s belts can be expected to last +10 years.
Regular cleaning of the machine and observing for any lubrication issues (lack of).Cleaning or replacing the air filter for the electrical/drive cabinet.Replacement of the grease supply.Listening to the machine for any unusual noise, which might indicate the beginning of a mechanical problem.
Many factors need to be considered, and every customer will have different circumstances in making a decision to either maintain or replace their existing hydraulic machines.
The elimination of oil, valves, hoses, etc. requires less housekeeping since leaks are avoided. Hydraulic systems must have the ability to “breath” when the oil is flowing in and out of their oil reservoirs.
Hydraulic oil tends to behave differently as temperatures change and also as the oil becomes dirty.
Overlapping of operations (ie: clamp and extruder; clamp and injection - pre-injection; eject on fly) is a built-in design capability.
There are several answers to this, depending on the age and type of technology used in the machine being replaced and the molding cycle conditions.
All electric injection molding machines turn injection molding into a predictable, robotic operation.
