Ferromatik Milacron delivers 70th injection molding machine to Hirschmann Automotive GmbH. The latest delivery is part of a larger order of 13 Elektra all-electric machines ranging from 1,100 to 1,550 kN clamping force. The machines have been customized for the specific requirements of Hirschmann Automotive and include numerous options, such as magnetic platen for fast mold changes.
The collaboration between the firms began in 1997 with a first all-electric Elektra machine. After that, the company ordered hydraulic K-TEC machines for several years, until 2002 when Hirschmann Automotive switched over completely to all-electric injection molding machines.
