Five Boy Machines at FIP 2014

Flexible Pilot Solutions

At the leading French trade show for plastics technology, FIP, from June 17 to 20, in Lyon, Dr. Boy GmbH & Co. KG, Neu­stadt-Fernthal, Germany, showed a cross-section of its machine program, which was fundamentally redesigned last year. The five exhibits at the booth of the Boy distributor béwé-Plast demonstrated, using versatile applications, the electrical machine line’s innovative technology, which is oriented to high machine efficiency.

The injection molding machine, a Boy XS with 100 kN clamping force, will produce a Fresnel lens from a two-component liquid silicone. A compact four-­axis robot mounted below the protective cover, removes the lenses from the mold and deposits them on a conveyor belt ­integrated at the back. Since K 2013, the manufacturer of injection molding machines in the clamping force range up to 1,000 kN, has, at its customers’ request, offered its own automation ancillaries, such as pickers and handling equipment with servo motors.

The Boy 100 E, combined with a second injection unit, manufactures ampoule adapplicators (figure: Boy)

A Boy 35 E (350 kN clamping force) with an antistatic paint finish produces protective caps for an insulin syringe in a 16-cavity mold with a laminar flow module of cleanroom class 7 (complying with ISO 14644). The protective caps are aseptically packaged immediately after removal from the mold. The transparent bags are airtight sealed and printed with production data to ensure reliable tracking. The packaging machine is positioned compactly below the cantilevered clamping unit. The cleanroom concept of the four-tie-bar machine is rounded off with a high floor clearance.

The 1,000 kN clamping force machine, a Boy 100 E, integrated with a separate, second injection unit, produces 2-component plastic parts for medical technology. The “adapplicators” permit the content of ampoules to be atomized finely enough to facilitate the administration of the medicament via the skin and mucous membrane. The versatile injection unit is based on a Boy XS and is equipped with its own hydraulic drive and own control unit (type: Procan ­Alpha). The injection unit is designed for a plastication volume up to 8.0 cm3 and reaches injection pressures up to 3,128 bar. Larger injection units are optionally available. The complete control and hydraulic unit is positioned next to the basic machine. The unit can be transported by means of steerable rollers and can thus also be connected to other injection molding machines.
