OVERVIEW:
All Electric & Hybrid Machines

All-electric molding machines use servo motors in lieu of hydraulics to drive all the processes such as injection, clamping, plasticating. They are said to be cleaner, quieter and more energy efficient that hydraulic machines. So-called hybrid machines marry both hydraulic and electric technologies, generally a hydraulic drive for injection and clamp machine functions and an electric drive for screw recovery
