Currently, fully electric machines use moulds built with optimized steels and alloys in order to achieve reduced cycle times and surface effects that are otherwise difficult to reach by means of other technologies. This combination of elements leads to very high production repeatability on a global scale and allow the production at low costs of plastic parts increasingly similar to alloys.
Injection moulding is a constantly evolving market where the search for high-performance raw materials has to face the pressure from government institutions to re-use plastic materials already present in the market. The major plastic converters are increasingly focusing on these issues as they need to meet the market needs as well as to maintain the sustainability of plastic materials already present in the market.
Mps takes part in this challenge: the latest generation production processes, a plant with a green vision, electric machines and water cooling systems adjust to the external temperature, thus optimizing the costs of transformation; particular care is taken in the choice of plasticization and screw units to reduce the number of waste.
