MMI Engineered Solutions (MMI) announced today it is investing $2 million to expand its capabilities and capacity in injection molding technology for their material handling and component applications business segments. MMI is adding 85T, 470T, and 2250T injection molding presses to the current fleet in their Saline, Michigan facility that presently range from 85T to 1500T. Each new press will have fully integrated robots to optimize cost, quality, and throughput.
MMI chose the largest machine, a VH2000-22500 two platen machine by Negri Bossi, because it offered exactly what MMI was looking for in terms of performance, specification, and availability. Equipped with integrated hot runner controls, SPC and QC software, an eDart™ interface, and parameter change tracking, the user has the tools necessary for precise process control and quality monitoring. The Amico remote machine access program features a process logging system for complete quality traceability.
