AX Series – The AX Series, which ranges from 50 to 350 tonnes, ensures reproducible and reliable moulding with minimum use of resources. Smooth running and robust mechanics in conjunction with efficient servomotors and an intelligent closed-loop control system ensure high process reliability along with high availability and excellent machine efficiency.

CX SeriesThe CX Series belongs to KraussMaffei’s smaller machine range and features clamping forces from 350 to 1600 kN. With these machines pharmaceutical manufacturers can reduce their expenses for space, time and material, gaining important competitive advantages in the process.

EX SeriesWith clamping forces ranging from 50 to 240 tons, the EX offers a unique machine concept in which the standard features include reliable processes coupled with high productivity and a clean production environment at cleanroom level.

Adaptive Process Control (APC) KraussMaffei’s APC technology helps to ensure consistent component quality throughout the entire production process. The patented APC technology analyses and continuously regulates the injection moulding process, and can be used for all thermoplastic series.
