Negri Bossi will be exhibiting at FAKUMA, taking place 14th to 18th October 2014 at Friedrichshafen, Germany.
Negri Bossi explains it will be presenting two 210T injection moulding machines with Smart Energy device for energy saving, both with the new Smart Flex clamping unit that creates a ‘FreeOil’ moulding zone.
According to Negri Bossi the first machine, an eCanbio 210 LSR, will mould a snorkelling glass in tri-material: PBT, LSR and LSR with azote. The company explains these materials are moulded simultaneously and combined thanks to a process developed by Negri Bossi. It states the silicon injection in the predosed cavities is achieved by a cool way characterised by N lines supplied by Guzzini. To complete the moulding process, a Sytrama Robot will be employed to optimise speed and precision.
Negri Bossi further explains the second 210T eCanbio machine will mould the gear part of bowling slopes in PA66, a material known to test the precision ability of the machine. It states structural foam moulding has many significant advantages: weight reduction, zero sink marks and dimension stability. This is a technique which requires significantly lower mould pressure and processing temperatures which in some cases, results in a reduction in cycle times and ultimately saves energy.
The company states a further addition to energy saving is possible thanks to the already proven and tested, Smart Energy. To complete the process, the latest generation Sytrama Robot will make a steady, reliable and efficient production run.
The same machine will be on show also at Interplas in Birmingham from 30/09 to 2/10, at stand
D20 where Negri Bossi will take part with its English subsidiary.
The company will be exhibiting at stand A5-5115 at Fakuma.
