EQUIPMENT

Hawk’s facilities house 32 state-of-the-art injection molding presses, with a full production schedule (24 hours, 7 days a week) to maximize efficiency.

Plastic injection molding machines come in all shapes, sizes and configurations. These presses are classified based on tonnage, or more specifically the clamping pressure or force. At Hawk, our presses run in size from 50 tons of clamping pressure up to 850 tons. The higher the press ton rating, the larger the machine. The selection of the machine will depend on several variables including the size of the mold, the number of cavities and the selected resin. Our comprehensive Equipment List below breaks down the types of presses we have at our facilities.
