A new line of large all-electric machines is said to be quieter, more responsive, and more economical to operate, among other improvements. The MDS-V series from Ube Machinery Inc., Ann Arbor, Mich., will replace the MDS-IV line, starting with models from 650 to 1000 tons. Larger machines (1300 to 1800 tons) and super-large models (3000 tons) are in development. The MDS-V series is said to have reduced platen defl ection—40% less than conventional machines. They also boast more rigid toggle clamps and wide platens that accept larger molds than before. Faster injection control response is also claimed, as well as a new linear guide in the injection slide base and improved touchscreen controls. New S-V ballscrews with enhanced sealing in the toggle clamp and ejector reduce grease consumption 90%, while low-noise belts and sound insulation covers reduce operating noise. A new electric device opens and closes the safety door automatically, and all machine motions now have power regeneration to further trim power consumption. (734) 741-7000 • www.ubemachinery.com
