ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, February 2, 2024 - The first medical-specific all-electric injection molding machine from Shibaura Machine Company, America will be introduced to the North American market during Plastec West in Anaheim, CA, February 6-8. LIVE demos of the new EC110SXIII (110 US tons) molding medical pipettes will be held throughout PLASTEC West at Shibaura Booth #3961.

“For years, medical device manufacturers have been using our general purpose ECSXIII machine to mold a variety of products,” said Chad Clawson, Key Accounts Sales Manager - Medical Casting/Molding Division, Shibaura Machine Company, America. “Our new medical-specific machine offers the same speed and functionality as other ECSXIII models, with enhancements that are ideal for medical molding and clean room environments,” he added. These enhancements include:

  • Plated platens to control particulates and contamination
  • Stainless steel guarding and panels ideal for clean room environments
  • Raised frame for easy access to clean below the machine
  • Special NFS H1 Certified lubrication grease
  • Extended ejector stroke (+30 mm)

At Plastec West, Shibaura will use the new EC110SXIII medical machine to produce medical pipettes. Fully integrated with the EC110SXIII will be a Mold-Masters hot runner controller and Mold-Masters water manifold system, which are available as optional add-ons.

The latest addition to Shibaura’s popular ECSXIII series of all-electrics, the new medical machine delivers fast injection speeds and dry cycle times, ensures longer mold life and provides uniform clamping force, for greater productivity, flexibility and versatility. It features the same user-friendly V70 controller built into all ECSXIII models, making it easy for operators to decrease mold set up time, optimize cycle times, analyze part defects, troubleshoot defects and more.

Included with the new machine is a full year subscription to machiNetCloud, Shibaura’s exclusive industrial IoT service providing manufacturers with remote, real-time access to machine data so they can control validated processes for molded components anytime, from any location.

The new medical-specific EC110SXIII is currently available in 110 US tons, with larger sizes to be available in the future.
