KraussMaffei will debut for the U.S. market its GXH multi-component injection molding machine, which features two injection units arranged in parallel to guide melt directly into the respective mold halves, reducing the number of dead spots in the hot runner.

KraussMaffei will debut for the U.S. market its GXH multi-component injection molding machine, which features two injection units arranged in parallel to guide melt directly into the respective mold halves, reducing the number of dead spots in the hot runner. At the show, a GXH 550-1400 will work in combination with an LRX linear robot to produce covers for automobile fog lights using a mold produced by Proper Group International.

The company also will debut the GX 900–8100, which features clamping forces of 7,500 and 9,000 kN, and display other technologies, including its intuitively operated MC6 Multitouch control system and FiberForm process for lightweight construction with thermoplastic composites. In addition, an all-electric AX 180-750 CellForm production cell with integrated LRX 50 will demonstrate manufacturing of foamed visible components with high-quality surfaces. This cell will include a dynamically inductive mold heater from RocTool and a mold made by Proper Tooling.
