All-Electric Machine Series for High-Speed Parts
Drive Technology for All-Electric Injection Molding Machines
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH, Schwaig, Germany, presents the compact injection molding machine for high-speed applications Intelect S. This means that in the high-speed segment up to 1.800 kN both standard and high-speed machines will now run with all-electric drive technology. "Our in-house drive technology has advanced to a level that delivers not only fast cycle times and unparalleled process stability but also guarantees maximum energy efficiency," CEO Gerd Liebig explains
The high-speed, all-electric Intelect S injection moulding machines are available with clamping forces between 500 kN and 1.800 kN and with injection speeds between 350 and 500 mm/s. They are specially built for high-speed applications with cycle times between 3 and 10 seconds. Thanks to its optimised configuration of motors and drives, this model outperforms standard IntElect machines in terms of mould movements, injection and metering speeds and ejector movements, which translates into significantly reduced cycle times.
Package of Options for Medical Engineering Requirements
Soon at the Fakuma fair in Friedrichshafen, Germamy, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag will premiere an Intelect S 130/520-450 with a package of options specially developed for medical engineering requirements, ensuring a clean production environment (Good Manufacturing Practice). The 32-cavity pipette application focuses on quality assurance, traceability and supports customers with their product validation.
For this system, manufacturer Waldorf Technik of Engen/Germany has supplied its VarioTip solution, one of the most compact automation systems with 100% camera inspection for sorting pipettes according to cavities into the corresponding racks. The system is equipped with a Max Petek laminar flow hood and connected to a master computer from bfa solutions, which ensures the perfect traceability of process data as well as monitoring changes to the set machine data.
According to the manufacturer the special solution that was tailored to the in-house NC5 control delivers real-time visualisation, and traceability guarantees maximum product safety for the system. Not only does this solution provide a better overview of the process, it also facilitates the normally very complex documentation tasks for quality management and assurance. The customer benefits from a significantly more convenient validation process that prevents uncontrolled external process interferences.
