From September 27th to 28th 2017, the "Kunststoffen" takes place in the Netherlands - a trade fair for plastics processing. The BOY representative Plastima Breda BV presents the new BOY XXS table top machine. The production of snap hooks will be shown in these two days. For the production of parts printed metal mould inserts are used with a significantly longer durability than that of 3D plastic mould inserts.
The compact BOY XXS (63 kN clamping force) enhances the model range of BOY in the low clamping force range. The Table-Top-Machine is suitable for an industrial continuous use and is particularly suitable for micro injection molding-applications.
BOY also relies on the proven screw plasticizing, which works according to the "first in - first out" principle. For screw diameters between 8 and 18 mm, plasticizing volumes from 0.06 to 10.2 cm³ are possible. Also advantageous are the clamping plates of the BOY XXS optimized for microforms of many standard manufacturers.
The BOY XXS is moveable on an optionally available base frame and with just one square meter of floor space the machine is flexibly useable. The BOY-mould- changing system is ideal for fast set-up times - especially for small batches. The cassette mould consists of a basic tool into which the 3D-printed mould plates with the integrated cavities are inserted (alternatively made of plastic or metal).
Dr. Boy GmbH & Co. KG is one of the leading worldwide manufacturers of injection moulding machines with clamping forces up to 1,000 kN. The very compact, durable machines work precise, energy-saving and therefore highly economical. BOY continually sets new standards in our industry with innovative concepts and solutions. Since the company was founded in 1968, over 45,000 injection moulding machines have been delivered worldwide. The privately owned company continues to put special emphasis on engineered performance and high-class "made in Germany" workmanship.
