Cologne, Germany, Friedrichshafen, Germany, October 13, 2023. Major appearance at Fakuma 2023: The renowned injection molding machine manufacturer Milacron will present the new M series as a European premiere, in practical use with the recyclate Systalen® PP from Grüner Punkt. Live on the booth, the machine will produce a storage container with a shot weight of 935 g.
The servo-hydraulic two-platen machine impresses with clamping forces from 4,500 kN to 11,000 kN and a host of innovations, including intuitive control and extended ejector access for fast mold changes and high productivity. "The M-Series not only demonstrates outstanding performance potential, but also scores points with a compact footprint and high clamping speeds," said Winfried Stöcklin, managing director of Ferromatik Milacron GmbH.
Systalen® PP is a post-consumer recyclate from the Green Dot (Der Grüne Punkt), obtained exclusively from packaging waste from the German yellow bag and yellow bin. "Our collaboration with Green Dot at K 2022 has proven to be very valuable for Milacron's sustainable product production and will also help to showcase solutions that meet the best environmental standards at Fakuma 2023," explains Stöcklin.
"I am very happy about the cooperation with Ferromatik Milacron and the great appearance at this year's Fakuma," says Jörg Deppmeyer, Managing Director of Grüner Punkt. "With Systalen® we are demonstrating the performance of today's recycled materials in modern injection molding."
At the same time, he adds, Systalen® offers a sustainable alternative to new plastic produced from petroleum: "Systalen® PP saves more than 50 percent of greenhouse gas emissions compared to virgin material. Circular economy and climate protection go hand in hand here – and that with convincing product quality," Deppmeyer continued.
