PMT Invests in New Injection Molding Machines
PMT's new presses were outfitted with new auxiliary equipment, including NovaTech NovaWheel desiccant dryers and custom 3-axis robotic cells.
Plastic Molding Technology Inc. (PMT), El Paso, Texas, has invested in all-electric injection molding machines, along with a crane system and auxiliary equipment, to support new projects and an expansion of growth in key market segments.
Representing a move into a new tonnage range, PMT installed a 500-ton Toyo Si-500-6, which is the largest press at PMT. The Toyo has an integrated touchscreen Programmable Logic Control (PLC) system, and is outfitted with 3-axis robotics and a NovaTech dryer system. The press will support new projects with a current automotive customer, while growing PMT’s business offerings in molding larger parts for both new and existing customers.
PMT also invested in two 200-ton EC200SXV50-8s from Toshiba Machine. The twin presses free up capacity for molding demand in this popular tonnage range, and give PMT a boost of efficiency for technical molding applications. Both presses were outfitted with new auxiliary equipment, including NovaTech NovaWheel desiccant dryers and custom 3-axis robotic cells.
Another factory investment PMT made to support new equipment was a 5-ton overhead crane system, installed to ensure safer and faster mold changeovers with a lift capacity of up to 10,000 pounds.
