Reduce Cooling Water Load with All-Electric Machines
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, February 2, 2022 - Water cooling systems have long been used in hydraulic injection molding machines in order to keep the machine running smoothly. But imagine being able to reduce cooling water load requirements- it will allow you to not only reduce production costs and increase efficiency. Thanks to all-electric injection molding machines, manufacturers no longer need to utilize large water cooling systems to keep their machine running, allowing them to reduce overall cooling water load while improving energy efficiency.
Less Water, More Benefits
The SXIII all-electric injection molding machine allows manufacturers to optimize their cooling demands and reduce energy usage.
All-electric machines eliminate the need for cooling water with the exception of one circuit. The only cooling water needed is supplied to the feed throat, which is controlled with a solenoid valve. This ensures efficient control of the flow and temperature of the feed throat area.
Running on servo motors, it not only reduces the cooling water needed, but also the associated increased energy use that goes along with hydraulic systems. Fans are used to cool the electric cabinets and the servo motors are air cooled and sized properly. In addition, all-electric machines require no hydraulic oil which not only saves on water cooling of the hydraulic oil, but also means no heat exchangers are needed.
Reducing your cooling water load with an all-electric machine will not only save on production costs, but help your factory towards reducing energy usage and your overall carbon footprint. Contact the Injection Molding Team to learn more about the SXIII series.
