Wittmann USA, a manufacturer of injection molding machines, robots, auxiliary equipment and more, is launching new innovation and technology at NPE2024: The Plastics Show (May 6-10; Orlando, FL). With more than 55,000 attendees expected, NPE2024 will be the largest plastics event in the Western Hemisphere promising a unique “Made for You” experience that surpasses previous NPE‘s.

NPE attendees will find Wittmann USA’s Booth #W3043 the place to see numerous machines running, as is the tradition with the company’s show presence. This year’s NPE Wittmann booth will feature five injection molding machine work cells (all in a new red color), fully integrated with the latest robots and auxiliaries. A key component is that 4.0 Technologies will be in every cell: Plug and Produce, Wittmann Digital, ControlRoom, Remote Access, OPC UA Communication and Data collection, and the list goes on.

- Wittmann USA plans to demonstrate why "It’s all Wittmann." is not just statement; it’s a way of life - says Sonny Morneault, Wittmann USA VP-Sales. - From Wittmann 4.0 Connectivity to Sustainability to Circular Economy to Energy Efficiency, Wittmann is truly the only plastics processing equipment supplier in the market that doesn’t just talk about this, we do it every day. Our goal is to show the plastics industry that we are the leader in the growth of innovation and what its positive impact can have on the environment, the economy, and our everyday lives.

Sustainability Focus

In keeping on track with a Circular Economy mindset, sustainability will be integrated throughout the Wittmann’s dynamic booth including:

  • KERS Energy Recover System in all SmartPower and EcoPower molding machines.
  • Process Technology, such as HiQ Flow, that helps minimize scrap and improve the customer’s part quality.
  • New Feedmax Clean material separation loader ideal for recycled plastic, removing 80% of dust and fines.
  • On every machine in the booth, an energy measurement will be carried out using the Wittmann Digital proprietary software IMAGOxt.
  • Complete line of auxiliaries including dryer, conveyers, blenders, temperature controllers and granulators to help customers enable a closed loop process.

Injection Molding Machine Work Cells

Wittmann's work cells are always a highlight of any trade show and this year’s NPE2024 booth is a can’t miss stop. Here’s a brief summary of the work cells and technology being featured.

  1. The MacroPower large tonnage servo hydraulic machine with electric metering motor features the innovative Wittmann HiQ Flow with regrind technology and will be molding a Sunroof Bezel from Axiom, using Hybrid grade recycled content PP from TotalEnergies. Also running is a Wittmann WX153 Robot.
    Auxiliaries (including granulator for regrind) contain the new G-Max XL Granulator; Gravimax G34 Blender and Feedmax B Series Loaders. The conveying will be operated from the M8 Central Conveying Controller.
    The new Feedmax Clean will convey material from the G-Max XL to the Gravimax G34 Blender, while removing the dust content during conveying. Also includes the Tempro plus D L120 and Coolmax 20ton Air Cooled Chiller.
    The Wittmann WX153 robot, in partnership with Keyence, will be showing how the robot and automation can print QR codes and other important data directly on the part.
  2. The SmartPower servo hydraulic 400 3-shot machine will feature Cellmould on the outer layer of a cup and will be molding the 1-cavity “family mold” Cup and lid from Haidlmair, with PP + color from Borealis. Also running is a WX142 Robot.
    Auxiliaries featured are the Aton plus 120 VS with a 3 hopper Silmax Compact Cart. This displays Wittmann’s Net5 conveying platform, ideal for controlling material conveying within a workcell.

Also included is:

  • The Tempro plus D 120 TCU
  • WFC120 water manifold for realizing and controlling flow through individual cooling channels on the mold
  • Coolmax 15ton Air Cooled Chiller
  • Dosimax Color Feeders
