Aimed at mass manufacturers of medical plastic components, the IntElect S 180-tonne all-electric medical machine has been specially built for extremely narrow tolerance applications requiring fast cycle times between 3 seconds and 10 seconds. Being all-electric, the IntElect S series is cleaner, cooler, faster, quieter, and more energy efficient. The layout of the mold space ensures it’s clear of contaminants, particles, and lubricants. This makes the IntElect S GMP-compliant and ideal for medical cleanroom environments.

In addition to its clean environment, fast cycle times, and processing stability, the IntElect S delivers molding sustainability, energy efficiency, and total cost of ownership (TCO).

Tests have confirmed that enhancements made to the machines’ performance drives increases the machines’ lifespan.

With a dry cycle time of 1.2 seconds, the S model outperforms previous generations of IntElect machines for mold movements, as well as for metering speeds and ejector movements.

The extended tie bar distance and huge mold heights means that multi-cavity molds can be used in combination with small injection units, especially beneficial for precision medical molders.
