Even on assignments with components that have a significant level of detail over large surface geometries, our customers will benefit from the rock-solid performance of our new KM MX.”
Added Paul Caprio, President of Krauss Maffei North America, “Our MX injection molding machine can handle a mix of large parts, family molds and their growing mix of high cavitation tooling systems. This is an ultra-high precision system with unbeatable versatility. SussexIM customers can expect shorter cycle times and increased productivity on even the longest production runs.”
