Ferromatik Milacron - Elektron injection molding machines

International project of success

After the big success of the F-Series we developed the design concept for the Elektron series, constructed by Ferromatik Milacron, an international manufacturer for injection molding machines. defortec interpreted the fin as an innovative feature for brand recognition in a new way, reduced, dynamic but with a clear affiliation to the product portfolio. An exemplary design development, which will be applied to the whole range of products.

This second generation of the Elektron series in new design and with improved control panel is a global all-electric series of Milacron. It is provided in nine different clamping forces from 500 to 4,500 kN and with nine injection units in the international sizes of 55 to 3,470.

A world-wide project, in which international development partners of Ferromatik Milacron and defortec worked together to create a globally successful industrial design.

Die Verwandtschaft der neuen Elektron mit der F-Serie ist deutlich erkennbar.

Awarded with the famous iF product design award,
category product - industry / skilled trades.

Longtime collaboration

Another specialty of the Elektron series is its new control panel, which was developed with regards on particular requirements and costs. The new panel‘s design was created by defortec and equipped with a broad 15“ touch screen.

defortec services Ferromatik Milacron already since 2010 in the whole range of design development. This means developing the complete product series‘ corporate design to the point of shaping a new control panel.

Machine design is concerned with the design of production facilities. Its duties include the form-finding, the brand development and optimization of function under special consideration of the needs of a target group.

Durable economic goods that are purchased by companies for creating and editing of goods and bookkeeping allocated to fixed assets are illuminated and developed under a design view. This includes the upgrading, optimization and emotional appeal of production and other production tools such as test equipment and tools.
