KraussMaffei is one of the market leaders in large injection moulding machine
technology. The MX series is the successful further development of the MC
series, which has a proven track record in thousands of installations. The MX
series is available with clamp forces from 800 to 4000 tonnes.
The MX series is engineered to deliver sustained performance
under demanding conditions. Even high-tonnage MX machines
are very compact and efficient with fast cycles and high
productivity. The modular design opens the way to a large
number of possible machine configurations. A standard
machine can be quickly and easily upgraded to specific
production requirements. KraussMaffei aims to be a system
partner for its customers, supplying what they need – from
compact injection moulding machines with basic automation
functions, through highly complex manufacturing cells, to
complete factory planning.
The technical features of the MX series include the
two-platen technology developed by KraussMaffei, a
high-performance plasticizing unit with very high quality
screws and high-precision injection units, with an optimized
drive concept. Machine operation is controlled by the MC5
microprocessor control system.
Two-platen clamp unit
At the heart of the MX series is the two-platen clamp
unit. The moving platen is designed as a box structure
reinforced with solid ribs to almost entirely eliminate
deflection. The platens are thick for maximum stiffness, but
are nevertheless lightweight. The moving platen is supported
during travel on the machine base with solid-steel,
generously dimensioned and adjustable sliding blocks that
are guided on the tiebar and supported laterally. Ample
distance between supports guarantees that even the heaviest
moulds remain absolutely parallel throughout opening and
The mould is equipped with an ultrasonic position sensor
system. Extremely short dry running times are ensured by
simultaneous locking and unlocking of all four tiebars. In
this class, the MX is the fastest machine on the market.
Like the CX series, the MX series offers the right
injection unit and optimum screw model for any production
task. The injection unit features a rotary piston with
centralized clamp force application and transmission.
KraussMaffei has huge experience in engineering plasticizing
systems and screws. Standard plasticizing units have been
optimized for cost-efficient production. Additional
plasticizing systems are available for specialized
High-precision injection units ensure high process stability
and part quality, especially with holding pressure control
and low backpressures.
The materials and manufacturing processes that KraussMaffei
uses for its screws, barrels and non-return valves guarantee
high wear resistance.
The plasticizing unit can be easily removed for cleaning or
changing screws using the quick-release system. Once the
barrel has been released, it can be lifted out by a crane.
The MX series features a precise, flexible and modular
hydraulic system. The economical pump drive supplies
precisely the required pressure and volume of oil for each
operation. Drawing no more than the actually required power
keeps energy consumption to a minimum.
The pressure and flow-regulated pump achieves rapid
responses. In addition to the variable-speed pump drive, MX
machines have a separate control valve close to the consumer
for the injection and plasticizing processes. The hydraulic
components are connected to the centralized machine control
via state-of-the-art bus technology. Effective, rapid and
reliable data processing ensures optimum machine
