Models: SE220EV-AHD CT-6, SE250EV-AHD CT-6, SE280EV-AHD CT-6, SE315EV-AHD CT-6, SE350EV-AHD CT-6, SE385EV-AHD CT-6, SE450EV-AHD CT-6 and SE500EV-AHD CT-6
This new machinery option brings together the popular SE-EV-AHD Series all-electric with new higher performance specifications tailored to meet a wide range of packaging product applications with cycle times down to 6 seconds. To ensure the overall productivity for packaging applications, the CT-6 spec combines increased injection performance with durability improvements required by long-term, fast-cycle molding. These include:
- Injection speeds have been increased up to 330 mm/s dependent on injection unit size
- Advanced direct-drive motor technology for clamping delivers fast, reliable, high-speed mold open/close and shorter cycle times
- Toggle support rigidity has been improved to ensure reliability at fast cycles
- Toggle cross-head linearity displacement has been improved to extend toggle lifespan
- The SM screw assembly has been added as standard
Systec Models: 160, 210, 280, 350, 420, 500, 650, 800, 1000, 1300 and 1500
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s Systec Series (163 to 1530 metric tons – 180 to 1686 U.S. tons) of hybrid-toggle injection molding machines offers configurability and reliable performance at a very competitive price. With its rugged and compact design, the Systec accommodates large and heavy molds with ease. Designed to provide high performance with lower operating costs, this machine series features highly dynamic DFEE pumps that consume considerably less energy compared to standard drives, and the oil-bypass-style cooling and filtration circuit extends oil service life to 25,000 hours — up to five times the norm.
