Smaller model sizes in two-platen technology – Wide platen option – North American premiere of the 730 U.S. ton Jupiter II at NPE 2015
Worcester, MA (December 17, 2014) – The success of the Haitian Jupiter II servo-hydraulic twoplaten
injection molding machine (the second generation of the Jupiter Series) has led to the
introduction of new, smaller model sizes and new wide-platen options for North American
Previously available from 1,349 to 4,496 U.S. tons, new model sizes include 440, 618, 730, 844 and
1069 U.S. tons., meeting molders’ desire for greater efficiency and a wider range of applications. The high-performance Jupiter II is provided with extra wide platens to open the possibility for molders to accommodate larger parts while paying for a smaller, less expensive machine size. The wide-platen Jupiter II is available in 1,069, 1349, and 1798 U.S ton models.
Haitian’s commitment to the two-platen, servo-hydraulic Jupiter II is indicated by the commencement of construction of a new manufacturing facility in 2013 dedicated to the two- platen platform. The new manufacturing facility in Yanshan, Ningbo, China will total 1,650,548 sq ft (153,341m2) upon completion in 2015. Dedicated to efficient throughput, the new facility is already contributing to faster delivery times for customers.
The Jupiter II is the best equipped for North American molders given its balance between capability, productivity per square foot and economical operation,” says Glenn Frohring, one of the owners of Absolute HAITIAN. “The Jupiter II’s servo-hydraulics deliver significant energy cost savings over older, hydraulic machines. It should be highly interesting to the automotive
At NPE 2015, Haitian is running a JUII 6500/4500 with clamp force of 730 U.S. tons and a shot size of 80.14 ounces. The machine cell is equipped with a space-saving high performance S5 robot from Sepro.
Zhafir Zeres Series: Best of electric and hydraulic technology
First models scheduled to arrive in U.S. first quarter 2015 – Zeres Series is shown in
North America for the first time at NPE 2015
Zhafir Plastics Machinery has expanded its all-electric machine offering. At NPE 2015, Absolute HAITIAN will show North American molders the Zhafir Zeres Series, a new all-electric injection molding machine combined with integrated hydraulics. The Zeres Series is based on proven all-electric technology and is combined with an integrated hydraulic accumulator. The hydraulics open up new possibilities for molders who prefer electric machines but need hydraulics to operate, for example, core pull.
“In the past, molders who needed core pull or hydraulic ejectors had to place a separate hydraulic power pack next to the molding machine. With integrated hydraulics, the Zeres Series eliminates the need for the power pack, reducing the machine cell’s footprint and improving productivity per square foot. It makes it easier for processors to switch from hydraulic to electric machines,” said Absolute HAITIAN owner and Chief Engineer Mike Ortolano. “It is the optimum solution for molds with core pull, and molded parts where quality is the issue rather than shorter cycle times, for example with optical components.”
The new Zeres is available immediately in the U.S. and Canada in clamping forces of 45 to 259 U.S. tons with larger model sizes to follow.
At NPE 2015, a Zeres 1200/300 with clamp tonnage of 135 U.S. tons and a shot size of 4.73 ounces will be on display molding a part requiring with hydraulic core pull sequencing.
Also on display: Zhafir Venus II/p and Haitian Mars II: continued excellence
Venus II/p uses special machine features for packaging applications
Absolute HAITIAN’s booth will also feature the Zhafir Venus II/p, a high-speed packaging machine with an economic price that lowers the entry point for molders participating in the packaging marketplace. At NPE, a Venus II/p 3800-1700p with a clamp force of 427 U.S. tons and shot size of 25.40 ounces will feature a high-speed cap and closure mold.
The Zhafir Venus/p all-electric machine includes:
- High-performance motor for faster injection
- High-speed mold movement and precise positioning for robot integration
- During plasticizing and cooling, clamp force can be reduced to shorten cycle time and increase machine and mold lifetime
- During clamping, the injection phase is anticipated to reduce cycle time
- Parallel movement for plasticizing, mold open and ejector movement saves cycle time without sacrificing repeatability of the individual movements
- Longer screw size (25:1 L/D) improves plasticizing and provides a higher quality melt
Mars II continues its best seller status
The Mars II Series continues to provide high value to customers with energy efficient servo-hydraulics, repeatable accuracy, precision, and energy efficiency balanced with an economic purchase price. The Mars II is flexible, making it suitable for a large number of applications in a wide range of end markets. The innovative drive system (patented Mars technology) with a direct connection between the servo-motor and the geared pump provides for precisely regulated rotational speed and extremely fast response times throughout the entire molding cycle.
These characteristics are what have made the Mars Series the best-selling servo-hydraulic machine in the industry, with more than 100,000 units in the field worldwide.
At NPE 2015, attendees will see the Mars MAII 2800/1350 with 315 U.S. tons of clamp force and a shot size of 23.60 ounces. The MAII will be equipped with a Sepro Success 11 robot.
