Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH, Schwaig/Germany and its Chinese subsidiary Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) will be showcasing their new machines at the Chinaplas 2014 in Shanghai.
The manufacturers will be presenting two examples of injection moulding machines for the packaging and medical sectors: the hybrid high-performance El-Exis SP and the hydraulic all-round machine Systec C.
El-Exis SP for packaging injection moulding
With the El-Exis SP, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has set the standard in packaging injection moulding for dynamics, speed and durability. Built for performance with fast process and injection movements combined with high precision and safety during the production of standard caps, thin-walled packaging parts with minimum tolerances, and precision applications with high injection pressures, the El-Exis SP is offered with a clamping force range of 1,500 to 7,500 kN.
The performance will be demonstrated at the Chinaplas 2014 with the production of PE-HD screw caps using an El-Exis SP 420-3000 (clamping force 4,200 kN).
Systec 120-200 C produces threaded rods for the medical area
A hydraulic Systec 120-200 C injection moulding machine with 1,000 kN clamping force will produce toothed racks from polyoxymethylene (POM) on the exhibition stand. The 16-fold hot runner mould from KEBO AG, Neuhausen/Switzerland, affords the Systec C high performance and precision with a 12-second cycle time.
A Success 11 line robot from the French company Sepro Robotique, La Roche-sur-Yon, performs the removal of the parts. A quality inspection system from Avalon Vision Solutions, LLC, Lithia Springs/USA takes over the job of 100% quality control of all the toothed racks and the evidence of reproducibility.
The fully regulated, hydraulic multi-purpose machine series Systec C is available in 12 sizes and is fully modular in the clamping force range from 500 to 10,000 kN.
Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) offers its Systec C hydraulic injection moulding machines with a hydraulic clamping unit from 500 to 1,200 kN with full hydraulics, and from 1,300 to 10,000 kN with hydromechanic toggle clamping unit. There are four sizes of injection moulding units on offer for every clamping force class. As a fully regulated, hydraulic multi-purpose machine, it can be used in the manufacture of a multitude of plastic parts for a wide range of customer sectors.
The Chinaplas show will be held in Shanghai this year from 23 to 26 April 2014. Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH, Schwaig/Germany and Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) will be exhibiting at Stand E3J01 in Hall E3.
