KePlast i1100 with a top-performance controller

Top performance for hydraulic
injection molding machines

KePlast i1100 combines an outstanding and user-friendly operation with established keyboards and a top-performance control for highest productivity – perfectly designed for hydraulic standard injection molding machines.


With its powerful controller CP 035, KePlast i1100 is optimized for both vertical and horizontal machines in combination with servo pumps or other peripheral devices that can be connected via high-speed EtherCAT. The operation panels cover a wide range of 7” to 12” brilliant TFT displays and follows a clear and easy-to-use menu structure.

Fast cut-off reaction for best process quality
Due to a sophisticated solution on the hardware level, a fast cut-off reaction of 62.5μs and a minimized jitter is guaranteed for an absolutely stable process. Various digital and analog inputs and outputs can be freely configured according to specific machine requirements. The implemented cut-off detection on the CP 035 controller – in combination with an immediate output reaction – is the optimized solution for perfectly molded parts.
