German injection machinery maker Ferromatik Milacron announced this week it has received an order for 14 machines ranging up to 650 tonnes from Hayco of Hong Kong
The first seven machines will be delivered to Hayco’s manufacturing plant at Shenzen, in China, before the end of the year, where they will be used to produce parts for the company’s liquid purification and dispensing products. This first batch of machines includes models from Ferromatik’s high performance K-Tec and Maxima product lines and extends from 350 to 650 tonnes clamp force. One of the machines will be configured for multi-component production. Other units will include special features such as extended tiebars and modified machine interfaces.
