This Chen Hsong 88-tonne model is from the Jetmaster MK6 servo-hydraulic series, where energy efficiency combined with reliability has established this a very popular choice with UK moulders.

SynthoTec’s Operations Director Wayne Williams commented: “Energy saving and competitive pricing, added to the full after-sales support offered by local agent APM, was critical in the machine selection criteria”.
