show preview | Machinery MHS moves into micro moulding Hall 1/A09


Canadian hot runner systems developer Mold Hotrunner Solutions (MHS) is branching out into the machinery market with the launch of its M3 system for high volume micro-moulding production, claimed to be the only micro-moulding machine capable of runnerless production on up to 32 cavities. Designed for cleanroom production, the


highly productive unit can produce 32 parts with shot weights less than 10mg every 5s – equivalent to 150 million parts per machine per year. The M3 provides a 4 tonne tiebar-less


clamp and uses four compact modular mould inserts, each of which carries eight cavities. This does away with the tradi- tional injection mould structure, simplify- ing mould design and speeding up the transistion from prototype to production, according to MHS. The machine can inject eight different part designs within a single cycle.


The machine is supplied as a full


production system with robotic take-off and part handling and integrated vision system. Each is supplied complete with mould inserts and hot runner.  www.mhs-hotrunners.com


Netstal extends Elion fast cycling range


Hall 15/D24 KraussMaffei group company Netstal will launch two new


additions to its fast cycle Elion machine family – an all-elec- tric version of its 220 tonne Eli-


on 2200 and a 420 tonne hybrid drive Elion 4200. Both of the new machines will be running fast cycle applications: the Elion 2200 will be moulding 1ml syringes on a 48-cavity Tanner mould on a 9.6s cycle; the Elion 4200 will be producing closures on a 96-cavity Schöttli mould on a 2.0s cycle. The Swiss company will also show a 450 tonne Evos


4500 moulding machine equipped with its updated energy-optimised Eco power unit, which combines a variable speed synchronous motor and hydraulic drive to continually adjust performance to the specifi c process needs. Savings of up to 30% are claimed over standard hydraulic technology, accord- ing to Netstal.  www.netstal.com


Dr Boy targets energy savings and control


Hall 13/A43 Dr Boy will show six new machines at K this year covering the range from 25 to 100 tonnes. The four larger machines


– Boy 50E, 60E, 80E and 100E – use the company’s traditional cantilevered clamp design and energy saving servo-electric drive technology. They will be equipped with the latest Procan Alpha 2 control system. The Boy 25E is the succes-


64


sor to the tried and tested Boy 22E and is said to be a completely new development. It will be moulding delicacy dishes during the show. Also new is the Boy 25E VH insert moulding machine. Confi gured with a horizontal injection unit for parting line injection, the machine will be demonstrating production of hexagonal pencils with a T-handle in a two cavity mould.  www.dr-boy.de
