Injection Molding machine platen machining?

    I have a location that is requiring for a bore to be opened up on their injection molding machine platen. They wish to have a local source in SouthEast to machine on the platten to open the bore without removing the platen from the machine.

    If anyone knows of a company in the SC, NC, GA, TN, or VA area of a company that can handle such work please send me a link to their website, or a contact.

    Hello, Brenda.

    Back when I was a service technician for Nissei IMM (90’s), a few customers asked for similar jobs, we performed the task with a Hilti strong magnet drill, which we purchased for the first inquiry of this type, and the job was done with no problem. I imagine the IMM brand nearest service center, should be able to get this done.

    Regards and good luck.
