At Chinaplas 2013 Demag Plastics Machinery will be displaying its hydraulic machine series, Systec C. The fully controlled, hydraulic all-purpose machine series, Systec C, replaced the former Dragon series last year, and is available with 12 sizes and a comprehensive range of modules in the closing force range from 500 to 10,000 kN. Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) Co., Ltd. is offering its Systec C with a hydraulic closing unit - from 500 to 1,200 kN with a fully hydraulic knuckle-joint closing system and from 1,300 to 10,000 kN with a hydromechanical knuckle-joint closing system. Four sizes of injection unit are available for each closing force category. As a fully controlled, hydraulic all-purpose machine, it can be used for manufacturing a wide variety of plastic parts for practically unlimited consumer segments.
A hydraulic Systec 120-430 C with 1,200 kN closing force will be on the Demag Plastics Machinery exhibition stand, producing components for an atomizer pump made from polypropylene (PP). The 48-cavity hot channel mould from KEBO AG, Neuhausen/Switzerland, requires high precision and performance from the Systec C with its 10 second cycle time. A whole host of machine equipment on this exhibit contributes to reducing the specific energy consumption: The servo pump drive from Yuken offers high performance with low energy use. Improved insulation for the heating bands on the cylinder jacket reduces thermal radiation from the plasticisation unit.
