The Netstal product brand stands for first-class, high-performance and high-precision injection molding machinery and system solutions all over the world.
The Netstal product brand is an international provider of premium high-performance and high-precision injection molding technology and system solutions. Netstal impresses its customers with constant innovations and services, as well as with efficient and performance-driven technological approaches for the beverage, packaging and medical technology industries in particular. Since 1992, the Netstal brand (originating from the highly distinguished firm of the same name based in Näfels, Switzerland) has been a trademark of the KraussMaffei Group.
As a traditional Swiss company, Netstal has been among the world's leading suppliers of high-precision, high-speed plastic injection molding machines with clamping forces of 500 to 8000 kN.
Energy efficiency is a prime factor, particularly given the ever increasing electricity prices. Through the clever combination of different drive technologies, the drive units achieve optimal efficiency values and still retain the necessary power reserves to meet even more demanding applications.
Thanks to its generous installation space and extremely stable construction, the ELIOS is perfect for highly demanding applications within the packaging sector. The comprehensive option package enables each machine to be customized and optimized to meet the commensurate requirements
Ultra-high injection performance is required particularly for thin-walled products. In terms of dynamics and injection speed, the hybrid ELIOS series injection units are truly a cut above the rest of the market.
The ELIOS clamping unit operates with a 5-point twin toggle and is designed for extremely fast and dynamic mold movements and fast cycle times. The generous installation space offers enough room for the large molds often used in the packaging sector.
Actuation of the 5-point twin toggle is facilitated through a clever combination of electric and hydro-mechanical drive components. Accordingly, the basic principles of hybrid drive technology are consistently retained
A powerful and highly versatile machine control unit is required to fully exploit the potential of our machines. The aXos controller was developed to effectively meet the increasingly complex demands placed on current and future production and consequently forms the basis for the highly efficient Netstal production systems.

Particularly in light of the steadily increasing cost of electricity, energy efficiency is an extremely important factor. Through the sophisticated combination of different drive technologies, the drive units achieve optimal efficiency values and still provide the required performance reserves for demanding applications.
The clamping units of ELION were developed for quick cycles. Extremely short movement times are possible thanks to the unique operation principle. The clamping unit still moves very harmonically.
In order to individually adapt each machine to specific requirements, a wide range of modules with different options is available to you:
Extreme injection performances are particularly in demand for products with very thin walls. With regard to dynamics and injection speed, the hybrid injection units of the ELION series are far ahead of the field.
The all-electric injection units of the modular ELION series stand out with their extraordinarily high precision and reproducibility. Due to the robust and powerful design of the injection drive, a very high injection dynamic is reached even at full load.
The stable and rigid ejector lever mechanism is driven via a highly dynamic servo motor. In combina-tion with highly sensitive angles, as well as position sensors and sophisticated control technology, the ejector of the all-electric ELION provides outstanding precision and reproducibility.
Netstal's patented "clean purge" nozzle hood significantly reduces particle discharge during purging by automatically controlling the volumetric flow. A key factor for cleanroom applications.
The innovative aXos controller provides freely programmable processes and optimum flexibility. As a result, the user experiences a previously unknown level of user friendliness.

For optimum cleanroom suitability, closed drag chains are exclusively used for the medical ELION version.
Thanks to the unique transmission principle with double toothed-rack gear and a highly precise force measurement integrated into the injection axis, the ELION injection unit provides outstanding precision combined with absolute reproducibility. The result is a shot-to-shot consistency that is otherwise un-heard of on the market.
The ELION with MED-Kit has an optimized plate surface design and special paint that facilitates sim-ple and cleanroom-compliant cleaning.
The ELION clamping unit is designed for use within a clean production environment. All bearing points are completely sealed and the lubricating oil runs through a hermetically sealed circuit. This means that any contamination of the mold installation space can be effectively prevented.
The ELION clamping units are developed especially for fast cycles. Their unique operating principle facilitates extremely short movement times. However, the clamping unit still moves in a very harmoni-ous manner.
The MED-KIT includes a flexible distribution of media (water, air, power) completely integrated into the hood.
A comprehensive "options kit" is available for individual adjustments:
CPP (Controlled Production shutdown after a Power outage) permanently monitors the power supply and provides sufficient energy in an emergency.
CPP increases machine availability in harsh industrial environments and reliably secures your productivity at lowest unit costs.
The PET-LINE 2C is a high-performance injection molding system for barrier applications and two-component preforms with decorative effects. The lateral injection unit can simply be deactivated. This provides complete flexibility and, if necessary, it can also produce monolayer and standard preforms for water and carbonated soft drinks (CSD) with up to 72 cavities.
The injection unit of the PET-LINE is a unique in-house-development. The extremely high throughputs of a preform system are only made possible in the first place thanks to the unique design.
In order to improve the preform post-cooling, the demolded preforms are actuated with internal pressure via the transfer gripper.
That ensures a more intensive and, most importantly, uninterrupted post-cooling of the preforms. A calibration of the external preform diameter is carried out at the same time
Faster cycle times and optimal preform quality
The clamping unit of the PET-LINE is based on the proven mechanical system of the SynErgy and was optimized in the course of different evolutionary steps with state-of-the-art digital control technology.
It is tailored to the specific requirements of PET preform molds and thereby offers optimal framework conditions.
The hybrid injection units with special HPX screw geometries ensure rapid melting. Color pigments, blockers or other blends can be added homogeneously at high throughputs without subjecting the melt to unnecessary shear forces
The vertical clamping design ensures extremely high plate parallelism and reliably minimizes the wear of the forming components for molds with up to 12 cavities. With its lock-to-lock time of only 2.0 s, the PETForm clamping system is a leading high-performance PET unit.
Thanks to the lightweight gripper unit, maximum process speeds can be achieved with minimal clamping movement. This in turn minimizes energy requirements and production costs.
85% of the required cooling process takes place in the separate 4-stage post-cooling station. This results in significantly lowered cycle times and high output performance.
The system solutions we develop are geared toward the highest quality, the shortest cycle times and at the lowest production costs.learn more
