More about the MX series

Machines of the MX series are principally characterized by the hydro-mechanical twin-platen clamping unit developed by KraussMaffei. It is compact in design, fast in production and low-maintenance in operation. The locking system is designed for short cycles with precise positioning. Thanks to platen parallelism, the mold is protected and high part quality is ensured. In addition, the MX series features outstanding melt quality and especially good shot weight consistency.
