MHS Mold Hotrunner Solutions will launch its new injection molding machines at NPE 2018 in Orlando this May, the company says.

The new M3 micro injection molding machine is a production cell for direct gating small- and micro-sized plastics parts. The turnkey molding machine is aimed at an increasing number of original equipment manufacturers looking to grow with the continuing trend of miniaturization, especially in medical and electronic devices.

The electro-pneumatic molding cell delivers high- and low-volume production capabilities.

The M3 also eliminates cold runners, improves part quality, speeds cycle times, and reduces waste from scrap materials. The machine can direct gate parts as small as 0.001 grams with a fine gate diameter of 0.5 mm.
