The plastics processing industry longs for machine concepts which enable higher productivity with low volumes. There is also a demand for increased product quality and energy efficiency. Dynamic drives leading to shorter cycle times are a good strategy for raising productivity. The use of linear actuators for high forces is another possible option. The superior precision of our drive solutions helps maximize product quality. The systematic selection of servo technology rather than hydraulics is recommended in many cases as a way to improve energy efficiency. The power dense drives we offer for this purpose are perfect for plastics processing machines, where space is generally restricted.
