KraussMaffei: Gold Medal Award
At the Plastpol 2013 show in Poland, KraussMaffei received the gold medal for the most innovative application shown at the show by demonstrating a fully automated manufacturing cell for the production of lightweight automotive parts based on its GX 400-3000 machine technology. The GX400-3000 featured MuCell physical foaming technology from Trexel. The entire production cell is designed to bring maximum productivity and innovative detail solutions for zero defect production, along with production intelligence.
The high shot weight constancy of less than +/- 0.1 percent ensures reliable production even under the most demanding conditions. This means that productivity is assured. As the fastest dual platen machine on the market, the GX offers the shortest movement times for maximum productivity. The smooth-running mechanism reduces traction resistance by up to 80% and, together with a hydraulic concept designed for minimum flow losses, ensures maximum energy efficiency.
