MX series continues its successful path in China
May 18, 2015
The MX series manufactured at the production plant in Haiyan (China) gives KraussMaffei a production solution specially tailored for the needs of customers in Asia. With regard to the high level of customer demand, KraussMaffei will be extending the MX series upward by two additional clamp sizes for the Chinaplas exhibition (May 20 to 23, 2015, booth 5.1.J41).
Powerful. Versatile. Durable.
KraussMaffei has been producing the MX series at Haiyan, specially tailored for the needs of Chinese customers, since 2012. "Since then, the MX series hat successfully become established on the market. Demand is increasing this year," explains Christian Blatt, CEO of the KraussMaffei Group in China. This success is based on a combination of the high quality standards of the KraussMaffei Group, which are appreciated all round the world, and the fast and cost-effective production for the local customers. "Optimized production processes have enabled throughput times to be shortened by almost half, which is extremely welcome news for our customers," Blatt continues. Added to this are the additional time advantages since, among other things, there is no need to transport items from Europe, along with a faster availability of spare parts and a service package that is tailored to meet local needs.
At the Chinaplas, KraussMaffei will be expanding the MX series for China upward with two new clamp sizes. "We are receiving ever more inquiries requesting higher clamping forces, especially from the automotive industry. With the new MX 2700 and MX 3200, we are able to offer our local customers efficient and flexible production solutions with clamping forces of 27,000 kN and 32,000 kN respectively," explains Jörg Wittgrebe, Sales Director China at KraussMaffei.
Achieve a competitive edge, flexibly
Plastics processors are increasingly having to address the issues of higher productivity and rising labor costs, even in China and South-East Asia. This means that flexible machine concepts are becoming ever more important. "The great adaptability of the MX series for different applications is ideal here, and is being employed by ever more customers. "2015 got off to a promising start, which means that we will continue to participate in growing markets and further expand our presence in Asia," says Blatt. The MC series is predestined above all for applications in the automotive, packaging and logistics industries.
Characteristic of the MX series is the hydromechanical two-platen clamping unit developed by KraussMaffei. This represents robust construction, fast production and low-maintenance operation. Force flow-optimized sliding shoes in combination with guided tiebars guarantee exactly parallel clamping movements and permanent mold protection. Other advantages of the MX series are the superb melt quality and the excellent shot weight consistency. All in all, the MX series offers consistently high quality with good productivity, even in tough continuous operations.
