Established in 2003, MB Spritzgusstechnik in Marktoberdorf, Bayern, Germany is an owner-managed company. MB develops and produces technically sophisticated injection moulded parts from almost all common thermoplastics and recycled materials.
The ‘passion for plastic’ of the founder Michael Bechtel, who has more than 25 years of industry experience as a plastic mould manufacturer and plastics technician, is evident in all areas of the company. The factory is passionate about processing recycled materials and re-using raw material to extend life cycles.
MB Spritzgusstechnik ensures they have the most advanced plastic injection technology installed in their factory. This technology enables them to efficiently process recycled plastic to produce Industrial pallets. A 2nd Negri Bossi BIPOWER i2700-56000P has recently been installed: a two-platen machine with 27000 KN clamping force and injection capacity of 28 kg in HDPE. The machine is equipped with a servo electric screw rotation and special screw profile for complex recycled materials. A complete Sytrama automation cell with Kuka 6-axis robot completes the installation.
The injection unit is specifically designed to provide a homogenous and consistent melt quality of the recycled material. This includes a special barrier screw with feeder aids to ensure optimal processing conditions.
The control interface of the BIPOWER model is ergonomic and intuitive, based on an intelligent, self-explanatory menu. Technicians do not require additional training or long learning phases, especially as the system is backed up with the support of the AMIC 4.0 system. Amico provides remote technical assistance ensuring a fast response to resolving queries or issues.
MB Spritzgusstechnik has 160 employees and 30 machines installed, and this latest investment in the BIPOWER machine is integral to a strategic move toward sustainable growth and technological advancement.
MB Spritzgusstechnik has continuously renewed their machinery profile, with purchases of both, Negri Bossi Vector and BiPower machines in recent years. MB have an excellent technical competency, and their trust in Negri Bossi is testament to the faith they place in the quality and technology supplied by the company.
