A Ruler for Measuring Follow-Up

With 15 exhibits all-in-all and seven on its booth in Friedrichshafen, Dr. Boy GmbH & Co. KG of Neustadt-Fernthal, Germany, is presenting almost its entire machine portfolio. Foci among the fair exhibits represent solutions for increasingly digitalized production and rising levels of automation. The company will celebrate its 50th anniversary by producing body parts of an old BMW on one of Boy’s first injection molding machines (Boy 15).

A new production cell will unite a Boy 60 E injection molding machine, a Boy LR 5 removal handler, as well as an integrated scanner and printer. On the booth, multifunctional rulers will be produced that are printed with a QR code following removal from the mold. This enables the data of each part produced to be subsequently called up and assigned. The digital connection of the machine to a main computer and to automation and peripheral equipment is enabled by a Euromap interface.

Additionally, the LR 5 removal handler will go into action and exemplify a multi-component application by producing cups. In the process, the thermoplastic cup body made from food-safe SMMA copolymer is first injected. Then an additional Boy 2C S injection unit partially oversprays the cup in the same mold with a wall made from a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE)

But the machine manufacturer in Rhineland-Palatinate has saved the biggest surprise for itself. In a press release, the company has announced "an absolute innovation" with which they are expanding their own model portfolio and offering its users "an optimum of additional use possibilities".
