ELIOS (4500 - 7500 kN)

Powerful, fast, and precise injection molding machine: performance, newly driven


Adaptive drive unit

Energy efficiency is a prime factor, particularly given the ever increasing electricity prices. Through the clever combination of different drive technologies, the drive units achieve optimal efficiency values and still retain the necessary power reserves to meet even more demanding applications.

  • Servo motor with variable rotating speed
  • Dual-pump concept
    • Variable delivery piston pump
    • Constant delivery internal gear pump
  • Completely sealed oil tank
  • Oil cooling and filtering within an auxiliary circuit
  • Integrated storage system



User orientation

Thanks to its generous installation space and extremely stable construction, the ELIOS is perfect for highly demanding applications within the packaging sector. The comprehensive option package enables each machine to be customized and optimized to meet the commensurate requirements

  • Generous installation size
  • Stable and low wear construction
  • Comprehensive option package
  • Hydraulic mold auxiliary controllers
  • Individually actuated air valves
  • Integrated mold control circuits
  • Flexible mold-cooling installation options
  • Electric supply for system and peripheral components

Hybrid, high-performance injection units

Ultra-high injection performance is required particularly for thin-walled products. In terms of dynamics and injection speed, the hybrid ELIOS series injection units are truly a cut above the rest of the market.

  • Hydraulic injection axis with rotating injection piston (spark)
  • Innovative and powerful twin-valve technology
  • Electric metering drive with water-cooled servo motor and spur wheel gearing
  • Position- and speed-regulated injection unit movement with torque-free nozzle contact pressure

Fast and stable clamping unit

The ELIOS clamping unit operates with a 5-point twin toggle and is designed for extremely fast and dynamic mold movements and fast cycle times. The generous installation space offers enough room for the large molds often used in the packaging sector.

  • 5-point twin toggle with innovative dual-drive concept
  • Moving mold plate guided by firm, smooth-running linear guides
  • Mold height adjustment arranged on a support plate
  • Completely closed and sealed bearing points with circulating lubrication

Innovative dual drive technology for clamping units

Actuation of the 5-point twin toggle is facilitated through a clever combination of electric and hydro-mechanical drive components. Accordingly, the basic principles of hybrid drive technology are consistently retained

  • Fast, dynamic travel sequences
  • Harmonic movements
  • Optimally designed drive components
  • Ideal speed and position regulation
  • Extremely energy efficient operation thanks to the recuperation of kinetic energy

aXos controller

A powerful and highly versatile machine control unit is required to fully exploit the potential of our machines. The aXos controller was developed to effectively meet the increasingly complex demands placed on current and future production and consequently forms the basis for the highly efficient Netstal production systems.
