Kiefel at Chinaplas 2016
Kiefel presents the punch press KES 85, with an innovative peripheral punching technology and a KMD 78F thermoforming machine first time at Chinaplas 2016. The system enables notch-free processing of formed parts.

For punching and stacking of trays, lids and formed products with special requirements, the Kiefel KMD 78F Speedformer combined with the eccentric punch press KES 85 is now the perfect solution.

The newly developed system ensures cost effectiveness when it comes to large-scale production and impresses with its vast range of applications.

A robust machine design and an eccentric crank drive are technically indispensable to reach the highest performance level. The production speed of 120 cycles per minute is outstanding.

The vertical punching system minimizes the effect of transverse forces. All cycle movements are servomotor-driven.

This concept combines low tool costs with the best stacking solutions. Combined hole punching and periphery punching is possible. The whole tool block can be changed easily and quickly with a crane.

Convenient operation is achieved by the Siemens Simotion control system, which is especially adapted to the user’s needs, and a touch screen with teaching function for new products.
The KES 85 is best suited for the production of parts of PS, PP, PE, PVC, PET and PLA and can be combined with every Inline Thermoforming Unit. Visit Kiefel at Chinaplas 2016 at Booth E1 L01.
