In both plants, a specially equipped Application Centre is used for customer trials, machine acceptances and performance tests, but also for internal tests, presentations and for adding larger production cells.
The Application Centres are equipped with the most up to date injection moulding machines with various clamping force sizes and types. The range selected stretches from standard injection moulding machines of the Systec series through all-electric machines of the IntElect sort to the El-Exis SP hybrid high-performance machine.
Since the close of 2012, the stock of trial machines in Schwaig has now been expanded by the addition of a Systec multi 160, a hydraulic multi-component machine with 1,600 kN and a Systec 1000 and a hydraulic machine with a clamping force of 10,000 kN. This means that mould and operating tests can now be carried out on a wide range of machines in the 1- and 2-component range at Sumitomo (SHI) Demag. As well as injection moulding machines, customers also have access to tempering devices, conveyor belts, dryers, hoses with Hasco couplings and clamping claws as needed.
