Over the past few years, cyclic olefin polymers and copolymers (COP/COC) have become increasingly important for the medical technology segment. In the wake of this development, Schöttli AG has now developed a special medical hot-runner system for reliable and efficient processing of these materials.
Electric drives in injection moulding machines are becoming increasingly popular, not only in cleanroom environments as required for the production of medical applications. The benefits of this technology for other areas such as clean processes, energy efficiency etc. are obvious. It seems only logical to extend the use of electric drives to all other areas of injection moulding.
