BMS Vision improves control


Hall 10/H31 BMS Vision will show the latest version of its PlantMaster MES (Manu- facturing Execution System), which includes a new report generator and web-based access. The new reporting tools


allow real-time data to be combined with historical information. Improved integration of collected data is said to allow users to gain better insight into information such as specific energy consumption by product or mould and total energy cost per order. The Web-DU application


allows easier access to information across the manufacturing plant using either dedicated terminals such as the DU11 unit, which features a 7-inch touch screen panel, or via PCs, tablets and smart- phones. ❙ www.visionbms.com


Wittmann shows plant automation options


Hall 10/A04 Wittmann Group will introduce new and updated robots, granulators and dryers at this year’s show. It will also show a revised and more compact version of its Tempro tempera- ture controllers. The W842 robot has been designed to provide greater flexibility in application on mid-sized moulding machines up to 800 tonnes. New features include a rack and pinion drive for the vertical axis, enabling it to handle a 25 kg payload. The length of the horizontal axis is also variable up to 20 metres. The robot can be fitted with numerous automation options, including servo rotational axes, spare I/O-modules and vacuum and gripper circuits. l The MC33 granulator is a new addition to the company’s range. The all steel construc- tion makes the new unit suitable for regrinding sprues, runners and reject parts. It is supplied with a 7.5kW motor


Drymax E system


and offers throughputs of 100-150 kg/h. l The Drymax Aton2 is the latest development of the company’s segmented wheel dryer and is claimed to offer improved energy efficiency due to the 3-Save Process, which takes only as much energy as is needed to regenerate the molecular sieve in each segment. EcoMode operation allows further process optimization where limiting dew point values are set. l Wittmann will also show a 900 litre Drymax E central dryer installation (pictured) built around a Drymax dryer


and battery of eight Silmax drying hoppers. The system uses the company’s SmartFlow air flap control system and frequency converter drive to optimise efficiency. l The latest additions to the Tempro range of temperature controllers are the Basic C120 models, which feature a wide feature set in a more compact design. The smallest model measures 30mm by 690mm by 630mm and can achieve a delivery rate of up to 200 l/min. It comes with a heating capacity of either 12 or 18 kW at a pump capacity of 0.75 or 1.5 kW. ❙ www.wittmann-group.com


Cost-optimised linear robots from Wemo


Hall 10/D60 Swedish automation firm Wemo launches its E-Design family of linear robots. Three versions are available


in the E-Design product line, covering part removal weights from 4-10kg. The robots are intended for part removal, pick-and-place and down- stream machining processes. The company will also show its X-Design series robots,


64 INJECTION WORLD | September 2013


which are able to handle loads up to 75kg and can be supplied with up to five movement axes. A 16-5 model will be shown with five servo axes. A 7-5 S Design model completes the Wemo display. This high speed handling unit is intended for packaging and medical applications at sub-2.5s cycle times. It will be demonstrated in and IML application. ❙ www.wemo.se
