KraussMaffei launches new Speed-to-Market program for standard injection molding machines
– A new European stock machine program ensures shortest delivery times
– CX, PX and GX series injection molding machines are available right now ex stock
– In combination with the new Rent-It business model, it offers additional production flexibility

(Munich, October 17, 2018) Short delivery times coupled with steadily increasing demand – The new Speed-to-Market program is KraussMaffei's answer to one of the most important injection molding technology requirements. The new European stock machine program includes standard injection molding machines of the CX, GX and PX series, which can be delivered immediately ex stock.

Increasing demand

"The demand for injection molding machines, in particular in the middle and lower clamping force range, continues to increase. That is why we had already expanded our production capacity, especially for the all-electric PX series, at the start of the year. Through the new Speed-to-Market program, we are now offering our customers an added value that allows them to increase their productivity," explained Dr. Hans Ulrich Golz, president of the KraussMaffei Group's injection molding segment. The new Speed-to-Market program includes standard injection molding machines of the PX series, as well as the fully hydraulic CX and GX series with clamping ranges of up to 6,500 kN, and LRX linear robots with payloads of up to 10 kg. "If the model the customer wants is not in stock, our production is designed to build one in a short period of time," added Dr. Golz.

Greater production flexibility with Rent-It

Together with the new Rent-It business model from KraussMaffei, the Speed-to-Market program offers additional benefits. It allows customers to rent the desired injection molding machine instead of buying it. Maintenance and other services are also included in the Rent-It program. "Customers who rent a machine maintain their flexibility and can comfortably cushion their share of contract injection molding. At the same time, their production is always on the cutting edge – without burdening the balance sheet," added Dr. Golz. At the end of the rental period, customers can decide whether they want to rent a new model, purchase the existing one or return the injection molding machine.
