The MP1200 is Wilmington Machinery’s latest addition to its medium-pressure large-part injection molding machines first introduced at NPE 2018. The machine features dual 130-mm reciprocating and compounding injection units, utilizing the company’s in-line first-in first-out 50-lb accumulators. Able to run hot and cold runner molds, including stack tools, the machine is designed for molding large gas-assist or foam products that require superior cosmetics and high-capacity production.

For foamed products, the MP1200 features direct nitrogen or CO2 injection into the extruder barrel. Like Wilmington’s other medium- and low-pressure machines, the new Lumina is available with integrated robotics, gas-assist control, resin blending, gas generation, hot runner control and other accessories, with no licenses or fees required.
At NPE 2018, Wilmington introduced the Lumina MP800 medium-pressure machine. A hybrid with a hydraulic clamp and electric extruder drive, that machine features a two-stage injection unit capable of compounding multiple raw material components and a clamp force of 800 tons.
