All-electric PX series from KraussMaffei exceeds expectations with increased demand
KraussMaffei has increased production capacities at its Sucany, Slovakia and Munich locations, due to the demand of its new all-electric PX series. The company says it is also boosting production by purchasing Plamag in Plauen, Germany.
Plamag has been producing essential components for the new PX series since the middle of 2017 and overseeing spare parts business. The all-electric PX series is available in five sizes in a clamping force range from 500 to 2,000 kN.
"The market launch of our all-electric PX series at K 2016 was a smashing success. Our customers appreciate the high precision and flexibility in configuration, production and retrofitting,” said Dr. Hans Ulrich Golz, President of the Injection Moulding Machinery segment of the KraussMaffei Group.
"Our current numbers paint a very positive picture of our market situation, specifically in Europe and the US. The advantages of all-electric injection moulding machines become apparent when you look at energy consumption and precision specifically. These machines are setting trends for the future.”
