Wilmington Machinery to Introduce New LUMINA MP800 Injection Molding Machine at NPE 2018

At NPE 2018 in Orlando, Wilmington Machinery will be proudly presenting our latest innovation, the new LUMINA MP800 General Purpose Injection Molding Machine.

After 45 years of producing all types of high-output structural foam injection molding machines, we have developed an ideal medium-pressure hybrid machine for molding large parts, both solid or foamed, with much thinner sections – resulting in substantial weight reduction and much faster cycles. The benefit of this new machine is two-fold: less raw material required, plus lower cycle times.

The LUMINA MP800 has a large platen space to tonnage ratio. The two-stage unit has a 152mm extruder with throughputs up to 2,000 pounds per hour, an accumulator shot capacity of 44 pounds, and an injection-pressure capability of 10,000 pounds per square inch. The LUMINA MP800 has the ability to accept hot or cold runner molds, and it can process commodity and engineering grades of thermoplastic materials, including 100 percent recycled materials.

The hybrid design offers both a hydraulic press and an electric extruder drive for energy savings, with fast cycle times to match any past design. The LUMINA MP800 is capable of unlimited applications – automotive, electronics, recreational, enclosures and much more.

Make your plans now to attend NPE 2018: The Plastics Show in Orlando, Florida, on May 7-11, 2018. Come visit us and see the LUMINA MP800 at booth W1823.
