Precise, energy efficient, fast all electric EX range from 50 to 280tons.
KraussMaffei’s EX series of all-electric injection moulding machines are high-performance, high-precision moulding machines with the fastest dry cycle times in the industry. At the heart of an EX injection moulding machine is the unique Z toggle that is responsible for delivering this speed and performance. Together with the direct-drive electric injection unit, this engineering concept guarantees outstanding precision and highly responsive machine dynamics. www.kraussmaffei.com www.plastrading.com
Full hydraulic, efficient, clean precise and fast from 35tons – 650tons
KraussMaffei’s CX series is a range of all-hydraulic plastic injection moulding machines for clamp forces from 35 to 650 t. CX injection moulding machines are engineered to deliver the sustained high performance and high product quality required in many sectors and applications. The CX is a modular, platform-based range for high flexibility and cost-effective production. Two-platen technology means a compact machine and the four-tiebar clamp stands for highest precision and efficiency. KraussMaffei offers a comprehensive choice of plasticizing units and production options, making it possible to configure CX injection moulding machines for different applications and output levels in thermoplastic, thermoset and polyester injection moulding.
Fast, efficient, reliable the giant workhorses of the plastic injection moulding
industry from 800ton to 5500ton. KraussMaffei is among the market leaders
in engineering large plastic injection moulding machines. The MX series is
a systematic onward development of the highly successful MC series. MX plastic
injection moulding machines are available in the clamp force range from 800
to 4000 t. MX machines are engineered to deliver sustained performance under
demanding conditions. These plastic injection moulding machines are compact,
high-performance production systems, capable of delivering fast responses,
fast cycles and high productivity. Versatile and modular they offer a wide
range of configurations for optimized, application specific solutions. Standard
plastic injection moulding machines can be upgraded with minimal effort and
adapted to any production conditions. Our product spectrum ranges from compact
plastic injection moulding machines with basic automation to highly complex
manufacturing cells and planning complete production plants.
KraussMaffei Automation has 25 years' experience in automation systems for injection
moulding machines. Automated systems are used for quality testing, insert placing,
clip insertion, cleaning and priming, and for the Cleanroom and DecoForm technologies.
Our linear and industrial robot portfolio permits complete automation solutions
and turnkey solutions.
LRX/LR linear robots from KraussMaffei are the first choice for standard processes – to cut manufacturing costs and boost product quality.
KraussMaffei industrial robots are fast, versatile and rugged. They are used to automate sophisticated demoulding, trimming and assembly processes.
KraussMaffei’s range of SR side-entry robots are used to achieve total cycle times less than four seconds. Side-entry robots are ideal for demoulding thin-wall articles or for other fast-cycling applications

Flexlink Conveyor Systems
Injection Moulding Technology, with its CX, EX and MX machine ranges, is KraussMaffei’s largest business division. KraussMaffei offers machinery for all standard injection moulding processes and for almost all process variants and new techniques. We have selectively expanded our automation expertise in recent years.
Cleanform: Injection moulding under cleanroom conditions. Krauss-Maffei has a unique range of highly cleanroom suitable solutions.
Decoform: Back injection moulding onto decorative overlayers such as textiles, leathers etc to produce parts with a high-quality finish. Predominantly used in the automotive interior moulding industry
Duroset: Injection moulding with free flowing granular thermoset feedstocks
Polyset: Injection moulding with unsaturated
polyester compounds, Dough Moulding Compound etc. KraussMaffei uses proprietary
force feeding technologies from Fahr Bucher as well as those developed inhouse.
Bulk Moulding compounds
Injection Moulding Compounder IMC: Krauss-Maffei’s IMC is a system which replaces the injection unit in an IMM with a twin screw compounder. This process opens new doors to processors allowing own recipe formulation to suit exactly the properties required in the parts. These systems sell themselves on the material cost reduction.parts required.
Mucell: A process where physical foaming using carbon dioxide or nitrogen as blowing agents in moulded parts ensures lighter, more rigid parts without sink marks.
Multinject: Multi-component moulding using
more than one material in the injection moulded part to give structural, functional
or decorative advantages. Examples are automotive tail lights,
KraussMaffei have built machines with the capability to inject up to 7 different materials on one part.
Silicoset: The process is used to mould liquid silicone rubber (LSR) which comprises two liquid components.
Skinform: A new process from Krauss-Maffeiwhich combines thermoplastic injection moulding and polyurethane reaction injection moulding to achieve high quality tactile finish. Mainly used for automotive interior.
Twinform: The use of a rotating center platen and injection from two sides to achieve multi-component parts, commonly used in automotive interior trim and packaging industry. Advantages are lower clamping tonnages.
Water injection (WIT), Gas injection (GIT) technologies: technologies to hollow out plastic parts to reduce material cost, remove sink
marks, improve cycle times. Commonly used for coolant pipes, steering wheels,
handles, roof rack frames.
CCM (Clear Coat Moulding) coats high-value parts with a flawless, thin, glass-clear layer produced by a two-component PUR system.
