Wittmann automation and auxiliaries
In addition to the auxiliaries installed on the injection molding machines on display at the fair, Wittmann will present various stand-alone solutions from its extensive range to trade visitors at the Swiss Plastics Expo 2020.
In the area of automation, the newly developed Wittmann robot WX138 with the new R9 control unit will be showcased. The WX138 is equipped with a 950 mm X axis.A completely new concept for the Z axis with an internal tooth belt enables an extremely compact design. Also worth mentioning is the significantly increased rigidity of the vertical profile developed by Wittmann. Compared to similar systems, the rigidity in the direction of the demolding stroke has been increased by 50%, and in the direction of the main carrier (Z-axis) by 100%.

In the areas of auxiliaries, the new Tempro plus D100 temperature controller is a special highlight of the presentation at the Swiss Plastics Expo. The Tempro plus D100 belongs to the range of temperature controllers which can be used as components for Wittmann 4.0 production cells. This means that the Tempro plus D100 can be fully integrated into the control system of a Wittmann Battenfeld injection molding machine. The new temperature controller is capable of 9 kW heat output and stands out by its magnet-coupled stainless steel pump, which ensures sufficient flow quantities. The pump capacity is 0.5 kW, with a maximum flow quantity of 40 l/min and a maximum pressure of 4.5 bars. The Tempro plus D100 is equipped with a wear-resistant, maintenance-free flow quantity measurement device as standard.
