Modular design also makes the IMMs easier to build and assemble. The Titan Series features the first low-friction, heavy-duty, linear-bearing guidance system for large-tonnage IMMs. The system reportedly improves molding precision, lowers cycle times, and reduces mold wear. The IMMs also come with Smart Pumps with pressure controls to optimize energy efficiency and a two-platen design to decrease machine footprint. Titan 1,760-ton presses will be available in July with additional 2,750, 3,300, and 4,400-ton models to follow.
