The results

(Before) 350 Ton HPM

1972 vertical injection molding press with obsolete controls and hydraulics. The machine was inoperable.
(After) 350 Ton HPM

The press was restored with new Barber Colman 4000 total machine control and proportional hydraulics. The machine has a new life!
(Before) 50 Ton Battenfeld

Old machine was in good mechanical condition... But, experienced frequent downtime due to old relay logic and poor process control...
The result was poor quality and loss of profits!
(After) 50 Ton Battenfeld

Refitted with MACO 4000 Control. The result: Machine produces high quality parts, downtime is virtually eliminated and profits are up!
