Test Case for "Industry 4.0"

Boy

The thin-walled visiting cards are individually printed in situ by means of a laser printer (figure: Boy)

Dr. Boy GmbH & Co. KG, Neustadt-Fernthal, Germany, is travelling to the trade show with twelve injection molding machines with clamping forces between 100 and 1,000 kN. The machine manufacturer is demonstrating the manufacture of products with a batch size of one, as part of series production – a principal feature of the "Industry 4.0" initiative – on a Boy 35 E. In this application, each newly molded visiting card with a mesh structure is individually printed by means of a laser printer, which obtains its data online from a previously scanned visiting card (Fig.). The machine is operated with a new differential injection technology. It offers users high flexibility, since the injection molding machine can be adapted to the required injection molded part conditions by simply loading lists of constants: rapid injection of thin-walled parts on the one hand, and, on the other hand, very high injection pressures for mold geometries that are difficult to fill.

Other exhibits show the variety of available Boy injection molding machines. The production of model railway housings by thin-wall technologies runs on a Boy 100 E. A Boy SL 30 industrial robot removes the parts from the mold and transfers them to a printing station. The ICE is printed with its characteristic red stripe here. A Boy 60 E produces pipettes with a 32-cavity mold in a cycle time of less than 6 s and a Boy 25 E VV overmolds ice scrapers of adhesion-modified PA with a silicone lip. Finally, a Boy 25 E demonstrates the reproducible marbling of plastic parts.
