KraussMaffei shuttle mold carriers are used especially for long-fiber injection processes for manufacturing large area components.
The shuttle carriages are use to quickly transport the bottom mold between various bottom mold processing stations and is driven using a servomotor. As a result, the foam discharge, for example, can occur in the bottom mold outside of the clamping unit.
The upper mold fixing platen parallel stroke is guided by the integrated guide frames.
Another distinguishing feature of the series is the tilting movement of the upper and lower mold fixing platens.
Thanks to their high degree of stiffness and positioning accuracy, Shuttle mold carriers are suitable for positive molds, LFI molds and molds that are not inherently rigid.
