The mid-sized electric injection molding machine product line of Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries Plastic Technology Co., Ltd. (MHIPT) came onto the market with the ME series in 2000.
The ME series evolved into the MEII series in 2004, to which several improvements were added. In
this way, our mid-sized electric injection molding machines have been highly evaluated in the
market for more than 10 years. Today, it is well known that electric injection molding machines
have an advantage over hydraulic injection molding machines in molding stability and energy
efficiency. What is in demand now is further enhancement in the accuracy of the molding process.
Responding to such demands, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Plastic Technology Co., Ltd.
(MHI-PT) developed the MAC-IX controller that enables high-precision and real-time integrated
control of the molding process and applied it to the new MEIII series electric injection molding
machine (mold clamping force of 550 tf to 850 tf). This paper presents the features of the
