The New VITESSE Has now also Conquered Italy

Ferromatik Milacron Receives Order from Vitop for Five Injection Molding Machines

(PresseBox) ( Malterdingen, )
Just three months ago injection molding machine manufacturer Ferromatik Milacron presented its new hybrid highperformance series VITESSE for the first time to the public at the Fakuma in Friedrichshafen. Two new VITESSE 250 with 2,500 kN clamping force are now part of an order for five machines for the new Vitop plant in Alessandria, Italy. The order also includes three allelectric ELEKTRA evolution 300 with 3,000 kN clamping force.

"For us the two VITESSE machines for Vitop are a double success", says Paolo Zirondoli, Ferromatik Milacron's Sales Manager for Southern Europe and South America. "First, because the VITESSE has now also conquered Italy, and, second, because a year ago we were able to gain two new representatives in Italy who are extremely successful", he adds. "Since its introduction on the market last year we have been able to sell the VITESSE to several European customers, as well as to customers in South Africa, Brazil and China", says Robert Trube, Director Sales & Marketing at Ferromatik Milacron.

Vitop is part of the Smurfit Kappa group and is the world leading manufacturer of taps and connection systems for modern Bagin-Box beverage packaging. The two new VITESSE will be used for the production of a tap for such beverage packaging. One VITESSE 250 is fitted with an injection unit of international size 1,000 and produces the body of the tap, while the other machine is fitted with an injection unit of international size 1,650 and produces the connector for linking the tap with the respective package. This allows the beverage to be ideally conserved prior to and after being opened.

The VITESSE takes its name from the French word for "speed", the most remarkable feature of the new Ferromatik Milacron machine series. The electric screw drive allows for parallel functions, resulting in extremely short cycle times. The stability required for the machine's excellent dynamics is provided by a reinforced base with linear guides. The machine includes a highperformance barrier screw with a mixing head and an L/D of 25:1 for optimal melt quality and even color distribution.

The VITESSE series comes in clamping force sizes of 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 kN, and can be equipped with injection units of international sizes 1,000, 1,650, 2,650 and 4,400. In total ten combinations are available. Due to its high demand the series is being constantly extended and is also optionally available in intermediate sizes with a higher clamping force or with larger injection units up to international size 10,100.
