President Hironori Miyauchi of Ube Machinery Corporation, Ltd., the core company of the UBE Group’s machinery business, announced today the development and release of the new 1600emⅢ. With a clamping force of 1,600tons, the emⅢ series achieves space-saving, lower profile and industry-leading energy-saving function contributing to carbon neutrality.
The emⅢ series is an electric injection molding machine with two-platen clamping mechanism, and has been gaining popularity from customers all over the world since its release in 2020. With this release, the emⅢ series now has machines with 1050, 1300 and 1600 tons of clamping force in the lineup. Ube Machinery is confident the emⅢ series will successfully contribute to our customers’ productivity by meeting business demands of industry segments like automotive, motorcycles, electric appliances, industrial materials and household appliances.
Energy consumption and machine weight are reduced by more than 20% compared to conventional electric machines. In addition, operating costs are reduced by lower hydraulic oil quantity and grease consumption. CO2 emissions are also reduced during transportation and installation. Water-soluble paint is adopted to reduce VOC emissions.
Faster dry cycle time is achieved by shortening 30% compared to conventional electric machines and contributes to higher productivity.
The emⅢ series is shorter than a conventional two-platen machine and allows for better use of floor space and easier factory layout.
Operator platforms are no longer necessary with a lower base. Operability and maintainability are improved by direct access to the operation panel and mold area from the floor.
The MAC-IX controller, featuring exceptional operability with two screens combined on one large screen, is equipped as standard. IoT solutions such as factory monitoring, operation records, alarm records, quality control and quality analysis are available. (Optional)
