Energy efficient all-electric blow molding machines

April 4, 2013
Uniloy Milacron’s UMS 200 EZ D double station machine produces containers up to 4-liter capacity, with view stripes, at a rate of 620 bottles per hour and a cycle time of approximately 22 seconds.

Part of the EnergiaZero line of fully electric machines, it  has very low power consumption thanks to a highly efficient toggle clamping system and the replacement of all hydraulic components with scalable, high-performance electric controls.  For example, energy is recovered by the clamping system during braking.

For such sophisticated all-electric molding machines, drives and PLCs play critical roles, so Uniloy Milacron has relied on the full range of B&R automation technology since 2003.
