Husky Injection Molding Systems, announced that a state-of-the-art, automated manufacturing line is now in operation at its Luxembourg facility. This is the third straight year that Husky has made a significant investment in new manufacturing equipment to support its growing base of hot runner and controller customers. In January 2016, Husky began producing hot runner manifolds on one of the advanced automated manufacturing lines.
“As our global customer base for Hot Runner and Controller solutions continues to grow so does the complexity of the molded parts that we help solution. I’m very excited about where we are taking our business and how this significant technology investment will enable us to support our customers and help them to grow their businesses,” said Stefano Mirti, Husky’s President of Hot Runners and Controllers. “Our new manufacturing line will enable shorter lead times and provide even more capability to produce highly repeatable manifolds of the best quality.”
Husky currently produces hot runners and controllers on three continents in more than 54,000 square meters of manufacturing space. Additional investments are planned for hot runner manufacturing in its United States and China facilities. Husky’s goal is to be the industry’s first choice for melt delivery systems, as seen by its innovative approach to reducing sources of waste and variability in the injection moulding process. The continued investments in Husky’s Hot Runners and Controllers business ensures Husky is best able to meet the need of its hot runner customers on a global scale.
