Billion at K 2019
Billion S.A.S., Bellignat, France, 70 years after it was founded, is introducing the new generation of the Select² high-speed electrical series, which is available in a clamping force range between 1750 and 4000 kN. The trend toward the circular economy is motivating Billion to demonstrate a sandwich injection molding process with this machine series. Recyclate can be used as a core material without being visible in the end product, as is demonstrated by Billion in collaboration with FM Kunststoff Technik, with the manufacture of a coffee cup. The Easycontrol assistance system measures the material viscosity in real time and eliminates batch deviations in the material in order to increase the process stability and reduce rejects.
With the Vertis series, Billion is presenting a new vertical machine with a round table, using it to demonstrate the production of a multifunction mold. The tiebarless machine with C-frame offers a simple accessibility for handling systems and is therefore suitable, e.g., for overmolding inserts.
Activities in the Field of Industry 4.0
Using the example of the Vertis series, the French machine manufacturer is also presenting its activities in the field of Industry 4.0, using the Euromap 63 communication protocol. Its partner Sise SAS provides the data exchange and acquisition systems, which store the process parameters on a client server assigned to parts. The process parameters can be called up for each part via a QR code.
