A5 EU & A5 comparison

A5-EU Series Comparison to previous A5 Series

Yizumi have continued to make big efforts in partnering with us and our German counterparts to produce a machine with typical European characteristics and specification.  This balance of value and performance is the blueprint for the A5-EU series.

In the past, we’ve often compared unfavourably on tie bar spacing against European manufacturers (especially those in Germany).  With the A5-EU, Yizumi took the decision to address this issue while keeping the basis of the big selling A5 series.  It’s an evolution rather than an revolution in machine design.  The new series offers extremely attractive tie bar spacing per tonnage clamp and brings the Yizumi machines much closer in comparison to European machines than other Chinese manufacturers.

Along with this major upgrade, the series is now also available with a greater choice of injection units per size of machine.  This gives us greater versatility when it comes to specifying machines for particular projects.  The machines are still fully configured by STV Machinery with our added (but standard) options giving a very high specification ‘out of the box’.

These updates have been applied while the price has actually been made fractionally cheaper.  Please review some of our comparison images below which show that from out the outside, very little has changed
