BBG presented five new mold carrier systems and concept studies, in particular for the encapsulation of large car glass panels such as one-piece panoramic sunroofs at the "Ergonomics calls for innovation" forum. All types come with electric drives and offer plate widths of up to 2,500 mm and depths of up to 1,600 mm, thus being included among the world's largest mold carrier systems for glass processing. They have specifically been optimized for the user-friendly handling of these unusual dimensions.

The exhibition included the BFT-P V8 and the BFT-P V10 mold carrier systems, which were designed right down to the last detail for horizontal encapsulation. In addition, the exhibits comprised two 1:1 models for securing molds vertically. BBG also demonstrated the design of a concept study for a further horizontal system.

Together with its partners, the BBG, also offered an extensive lecture program, including presentations and exhibitions by BASF, the Fraunhofer Institute for Foundry, Composite and Processing Technology IGCV, Hennecke, Lufttechnik Bejbl and Stäubli.

Premiere of New Easy Control 2.0

Easy Control 2.0, BBG's new user interface, which was demonstrated for the first time, simplifies the programming and operation of mold carrier systems. At the same time, it increases productivity and improves process reliability when processing polyurethane (PUR). The tool, machine and plant manufacturer has substantially increased the scope of services and a large number of functions in comparison to the previous version. This noticeably simplifies work while also making it easier, safer and faster for operators to integrate new molds into the mold carrier.

New Products in Toolmaking

Technicians from the toolmaking department showed live demos of various new products, which simplify the manufacturing process and improve component quality: automated release agent application by a robot, and a panel encapsulation mold with PUR gate trimmer and zigzag venting slider. The partners included Acmos Chemie KG, Jahnke GmbH and Jugard + Künstner GmbH. Both innovations contribute to improving component quality while saving time and material. They can be used for all Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) processes.

BBG Remote Maintenance Box

Another innovation, also on display for the first time, was developed by BBG together with Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG: the BBG Remote Maintenance Box, with which the secure and reliable remote maintenance of machines and systems via VPN is also possible in China through the Great China Firewall. (bf)
