BOY exhibits 14 Injection moulding machines at the Fakuma

BOY exhibits 14 Injection moulding machines at the Fakuma
With a record participation BOY will contribute to the success of the 25th Fakuma, which will take place from the 17th to the 21st October 2017. With a total of 14 BOY exhibits – a number that has never been exhibited before in Friedrichshafen – the manufacturer of Injection Moulding Machines with a clamping force of up to 1,000 kN underlines its high performance diversity and long-time competence in the plastic sector. From the compact BOY XXS and BOY XS, the insert moulding machines and additional injection moulding units up to the BOY 100 E - almost all machine sizes and series will be exhibited.

In hall A7 at booth 7101, visitors will find a variety of interesting applications at the BOY booth as well as eight exhibits. The new table top machine BOY XXS (63 kN clamping force) produces small game figures made of a foamed PP. Equipped with proven techniques for a continuous industrial operation, e.g. with an energy-efficient servo drive and the intuitively operable machine control Procan ALPHA4, the BOY XXS is a welcome programme enhancement for users of most diverse industries. The mould changing system of the BOY XXS allows shortest set-up times, an important advantage in case of small series production and in the prototype construction. Another advantage is the optimized clamping plates of the BOY XXS - especially for micro forms of many normal manufacturers.

The processing of PEEK material on the BOY XS (100 kN clamping force) and the use of a new mould concept on a BOY 35 E are further major attractions of BOY at the Fakuma. The energy-saving approach of this new development by the Technology Office Hein only provides for a partial tempering of the mould. At the Fakuma only the mould area relevant for the injection moulding process - in this case the 3D-printed metal mould inserts - is appropriately tempered. After the energy-saving servo drive (at Fakuma 2008) and the development of the EconPlast-plasticizing technology (in 2013), this is a further step to make the injection moulding process more energy-saving and efficient in terms of the moulds.
