Allrounder for Deep and Shallow Products on One Line
Gabler Thermoform at K 2019
At Gabler Thermoform GmbH & Co. KG, Lübeck, Germany, the focus is on high flexibility, high productivity and user-friendly operation. These points were taken into account in the continuing development of the thermoforming lines. The result is the Swing 3 machine generation. The stacking and counting mechanism of the thermoforming line handle both deep components, such as cups and bowls, and shallow products such as lids.
An integrated mold changing system permits rapid mold exchange. The enlargement of the forming surface area to 600 x 271 mm increases the output to 31,500 cups per hour depending on the mold and the number of cavities – a significant increase compared to earlier Swing machines. The trim-in-place machine additionally offers numerous automation possibilities for many industrial requirements and applications.
Processing of PET Materials and Biodegradable Plastics
The development was preformed, with a view to processing PET materials and biodegradable plastics. The forming surface allows high cutting forces to be applied, which, assuming the appropriate mold technology, for example from Marbach Werkzeugbau GmbH, Heilbronn, Germany, allow the recycled materials to be processed with no loss of quality or productivity.
To set the required machine parameters, the system has a large touchscreen, and also reliably links to upstream and downstream system components. Because of its ease of use, it can be operated by one person in normal operation and for mold exchange. Moreover, a compact design permits the integration into many production environments.
