New performance for the packaging industry

For the production of thin-walled items and screw caps, special features are available which enable the "Packaging" Allrounders to be adapted quite individually to the particular application.
The equipment for producing thin-walled items includes preparations for connecting an external in-mould labelling system or other removal system. In addition, the extension of the robotic system interface enables the robotic system to advance as the mould opens. Once again, the main advantage here lies in the effective reduction of the entire cycle time. Freely programmable ramps for the hydraulic ejector ensure the fast and gentle demoulding of parts. Valve clusters with large diameters help with rapid actuation of pneumatic functions in the mould, such as air blow.

In screw cap production, fast, reliable ejection of mass-produced parts is what counts. For this purpose, a servo-electric ejector with hydraulic booster function, in other words an increased ejection force of 250 kN, is available. This ensures problem-free demoulding even in the case of shrunk-on closures. The "ejection" and "mould opening" steps can be synchronised. The dropping of the moulded parts can be adjusted with precision to keep the mould opening times short. Higher screw circumferential speeds enable correspondingly short dosage times. This permits very fast cycle times.
To this are added the expanded control for additional signals and an interface for dying or dosing units so that the peripherals can be fully integrated in the production processes.

Further control functions are also integrated in the "Packaging" version, such as "start-up parameters/start-up cycles". This Selogica function facilitates a controlled start of production, particularly with high-speed applications. This makes for efficient operations because, for example, there is no need to adjust process parameters for start-up purposes and this can be implemented automatically.
