Vertical injection molding machines

Vertical injection molding machines function the same as traditional horizontal machines, however they are orientated to operate on the vertical axis. This type of machine is available in hydraulic, electric and hybrid executions to meet a range of customer requirements. Vertical injection molding machines require very little floor space due to the orientation of the machine (Watch this video for a 360 view) . Vertical injection molding machines are particularly suited for insert molding applications. Components can be easily loaded into the mold and held in place by gravity prior to over molding. Vertical injection molding machines often incorporate a shuttle or rotary table (see images below) , allowing loading and demolding within the machines cycle time.
