According to experience of operating injection molding machines at JSC Atlant's and other processors' premises the effectiveness of plastic products manufacturing is defined not so much by injection molding machine price that its reliability and output.
The machine price accounts for just one tenth of final product own cost which is greatly affected with such factors as installation and maintenance costs, energy, water and air consumption, reliability (operation factor), cycle time and depreciable value of used machine. Nevertheless nowadays about a half of the market is occupied with machinery featuring minimal technological capabilities and low energy efficiency, reliability and quality as price is still a main factor of selecting an injection molding machine. Taking into account the trend of Russian market to high consumption volumes for cheap machinery JSC Atlant has developed 3 series of molding equipment: – Injection molding machines ultimately complying modern technological requirements with components from leading global suppliers and priced 25-30 percent lower compared to similar European machines; – Injection molding machines with the same technical capabilities but cheaper kitting and thus lower price; – Low price bracket equipment does not allowing to produce complex articles or apply expensive molds. With various components and technical solutions applied JSC Atlant guarantees high quality for all equipment: every unit is covered with 24 months warranty and there is an opportunity to organize service support for all operation period.
