NOVA eT All Electric Injection Moulding Machine



Precise • Efficient • Fast

The NOVA eT are 5-point double toggle clamp, all-electric injection moulding machines available in 220-, 280-, 350-, 450- & 550-tonne models. Injection capacities from 354g to 2606g (PS) across the range. These all-electric injection moulding machines offer energy savings of up to 80% when compared to conventional hydraulic drive solutions, and substantially reduced cycle times due to fully overlapping movements. NOVA eT machines are equipped as standard with:

  • ETHERNET VARAN PROTOCOL control system
  • Smart Flex 2 clamping unit with generous tie bar spacing to accommodate larger moulds and a moving platen that rides on linear bearings for excellent platen parallelism and reduced energy use
  • Robust ball-screw injection drive system with high speed, high load ball screws
  • Multi touch screen TACTUM based user interface with full range of control parameters
  • Ready for AMICO 4.0 wireless remote service access
