Medbio, Inc. has expanded its production capabilities with the addition of a new Arburg 470C-165 ton hydraulic molding press with a 5oz shot size. This new machine will add both redundancy and additional capacity to Medbio’s molding capabilities, and will be used for higher volume work.
“Like most of our Arburg machines, this press has cavity-pressure sensing capabilities, using Kistler-brand sensors,” said John Woodhouse, director of sales and marketing at Medbio. “This machine is also equipped with a hydraulic core pull and pneumatic valve gate control, and will have an automated packaging cell.”
The new machine will be operational by January 27th, with the automation equipment scheduled to arrive at the end of February.
