The success of the Haitian Jupiter II servo-hydraulic two platen injection molding machine (the second generation of the Jupiter Series) has led to the introduction of new, smaller model sizes and new wide-platen options for North American molders.
Previously available from 1,349 to 4,496 U.S. tons, new model sizes include 440, 618, 730, 844 and 1069 U.S. tons., meeting molders’ desire for greater efficiency and a wider range of applications. The high-performance Jupiter II is provided with extra wide platens to open the possibility for molders to accommodate larger parts while paying for a smaller, less expensive machine size. The wide-platen Jupiter II is available in 1,069, 1349, and 1798 U.S ton models.
Haitian’s commitment to the two-platen, servo-hydraulic Jupiter II is indicated by the commencement of construction of a new manufacturing facility in 2013 dedicated to the twoplaten platform. The new manufacturing facility in Yanshan, Ningbo, China will total 1,650,548 sq ft (153,341m2) upon completion in 2015. Dedicated to efficient throughput, the new facility is already contributing to faster delivery times for customers.
The Jupiter II is the best equipped for North American molders given its balance between capability, productivity per square foot and economical operation,” says Glenn Frohring, one of the owners of Absolute HAITIAN. “The Jupiter II’s servo-hydraulics deliver significant energy cost savings over older, hydraulic machines. It should be highly interesting to the automotive industry.”
At NPE 2015, Haitian is running a JUII 6500/4500 with clamp force of 730 U.S. tons and a shot size of 80.14 ounces. The machine cell is equipped with a space-saving high performance S5 robot from Sepro.
