Shawnee State University received a generous donation from Milacron in support of SSU’s Plastics Engineering Technology program.

From processing equipment to tooling and fluid technologies to aftermarket parts, Milacron delivers best-in-class solutions to meet the customer’s most important challenges and accelerate their success. Across the globe, Milacron has been helping manufacturers everywhere to improve productivity, cut costs, increase energy efficiency, eliminate scrap, reduce cycle times and whatever it takes to succeed in today’s complex global economy.

Milacron has donated an a-S110i Roboshot All-Electric Injection Molding Machine and a CM-MDCW-15 high heat Milacron carousel plus mobile dryer towards SSU’s Plastics Engineering Technology program.

“We are pleased to donate the equipment and welcome the opportunity to demonstrate not only our machine technology, but also our overall capabilities to meet present and future processing requirements the SSU program may need,” said Eric Thompson, Sales Engineer at Milacron and SSU alumnus. “We look forward to the opportunity of working on this project with Shawnee State.”

Injection molding is the most common manufacturing process to produce plastic parts. The Milacron-FANUC Roboshot is an all-electric injection molding machine that produces plastic parts with higher precision and efficiency than hydraulic alternatives. The Mobile Drying and Conveying (MDCW) System features a unitized drying and material conveying system that fits perfectly into a JIT (Just In Time) production environment. The material can be pre-dried remotely in a material preparation area and moved to the processing machine when needed.

“We are extremely grateful for Milacron’s generous gift and their commitment to invest in the education of future plastics engineers and technologists at Shawnee State University. Milacron’s Roboshot injection molding machine will provide our students with the opportunity to learn through hands-on lab experiences with some of the latest technologies in the industry. The state of Ohio is the number one producer of plastic and rubber products, so these types of technologies and hands-on lab experiences help our program produce graduates with a competitive advantage for in-demand careers across the state and the region,” said Adam Miller, Assistant Professor and Chairperson of SSU’s Engineering Technologies Department.
