Milacron Holdings Corp., one of the leading industrial technology companies serving the plastics processing industry, announced the completion of the expansion at its Mold-Masters’ Coimbatore, India hot runner facility.
The 10,000 square foot facility in Chinnavedampati, Coimbatore is 4 kilometers away from the existing manufacturing facility. This facility will predominantly manufacture the Mold-Masters’ automotive and large part focused hot runner system – Fusion G2. The G2 product line is engineered in Europe and serviced by the Global MasterCARE team.
The Fusion G2’s drop-in, single point connection design ensures easy installation, faster start-ups, reliable operation and user-friendly maintenance for automotive and medium to large part molding applications. The Fusion G2 has recently added improved features including extended nozzle lengths and types, valve pin intelligence with speed control and pin position monitoring and new gate seals. The Fusion G2 will have a prominent display at this year’s upcoming Fakuma 2015, an international trade fair for plastics processing on October 13-17, 2015 in Germany.
Kannan Venkatraman, Mold-Masters Managing Director, India, hosted an opening function and Hans Hagelstein, Mold-Masters Vice President and General Manager for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India, performed the traditional ribbon cutting ceremony officially opening the facility. Hagelstein commented, “As India’s injection molding market continues to grow, so too will the complexity of the molded products the region produces. With complex products come increasingly complex molds and an increased reliance on hot runners, which is where Milacron’s Mold-Masters brand excels. Whether the mold is simple or incredibly complex, we produce hot runner systems that meet these individual needs, ensuring efficiency, accuracy and reliability."
