Plastic injection molding machines
Press, cool, solidify
Plastic injection molding machines melt plastic granulate at high pressure before pressing the melt into a negative mold where it cools down and solidifies again. High temperatures and extreme injection pressures are used to achieve high levels of quality and process speed.
Hydraulic cylinders are used to seal the injection pressure in the negative molds and to generate this injection pressure for the molten granulate.

Other applications in the plastics sector
A variety of our hydraulic cylinders is used in the molds themselves. More information on this is available in the 'Mold and tool construction' section
