  5. Horizontal injection moulding machines

Horizontal injection moulding machines are used to manufacture plastic parts by injecting molten plastic into a mould. These machines are horizontally oriented, meaning that the mould is placed horizontally and the injection unit moves horizontally to inject the molten plastic.

An advantage of horizontal injection moulding machines is that they are suitable for producing large and heavy parts, as the part can be removed from the mould more easily than with vertical machines. They are also ideal for automation and large production runs.

Horizontal injection moulding machines usually consist of a clamping unit, an injection unit and a control system. The clamping unit is responsible for holding the mould in place, while the injection unit melts and injects the plastic into the mould. The control system manages the operation of the machine, controlling temperature, pressure and other parameters to ensure the quality and consistency of the final product.

There are different types of horizontal injection moulding machines, including hydraulic, electric and hybrid machines. Hydraulic machines use hydraulic power to operate, while electric machines use electric motors. Hybrid machines combine both hydraulic and electric technologies to achieve better energy efficiency and performance.

Overall, horizontal injection moulding machines are widely used in various industries, including automotive, medical, and consumer goods, to produce plastic parts of excellent quality and precision.

Servo-hydraulic machines

Q-series (1,100kN - 6,500kN):

Ferromatik Milacron's Q-Series is the latest servo-hydraulic injection moulding machine available worldwide. With a tonnage range of 55 to 610 (1,100-5,500 KN), the Q-Series is built for a wide range of applications and configurations. Based on Ferromatik's reliable and in-demand Magna Toggle and F-Series machines, the Q-Series is a true culmination of high efficiency, consistency and globally developed technology.

The Q-Series is designed to meet the high expectations of toggle performance while offering exceptional value. By using servo motors in combination with hydraulic components, the Q-Series offers exceptional repeatability while saving energy. The kinematics of the toggle lever ensures higher speeds and smooth and precise operation. The clamp design provides better tonnage linearity, resulting in lower minimum tonnage than previous knee lever designs. The servo motor and hydraulic systems together provide power when needed and use less power when not required. The eco-friendly design provides savings in electricity consumption, cooling requirements and lower maintenance costs.

The Q-Series is designed with your business in mind. Protect your mould investment with mould protection technology and the effortless operation of precise automatic mould height adjustment. With three directions to remove parts and a smaller footprint than previous moulds, floor space can be optimised. Enjoy the benefits of machines available directly from stock!


The Ferromatik Q-260


C-series (15,000kN - 67,500kN):

Introducing the next generation of Milacron Innovation. The C-series extends Milacron's leading technology for large machines through a high-tonnage twin-plate press driven by an energy-efficient servomotor-hydraulic system, focused on versatility and designed around the demands of the global automotive, appliance, pallet and other large formed parts industries. Powered by the energy-efficient and highly reliable Fanuc servo motor package, the C-series' enhanced machine specifications and performance offer improved reliability, higher maximum mould weights, higher clamping speeds and a compact footprint. The C series is a truly global machine in design, performance and reliability.
