With a record attendance of over 1,200 guests in-house exhibition has gone 2014 Ferromatik the factory premises at the Kaiser chair over. There were new not only the many exhibits – in a new light shone even the entire plant from the outside.A large order on the first day on 63 machines with 3,500 kN clamping force of all-electric Eelektron series inspired the Milacron sales team in addition. Overall, were seen at the Open House 14 injection molding machines, many of which are fully automated production cells in action. Conveying, printing, unloading, stacking and packaging – all automation steps you could take a look. This application-oriented system solutions underline the need the expertise of Ferromatik as a complete system provider.
Large F-machine was among the visitors praise and approval
Highlights of the in-house exhibition in Malterdingen belonged was certainly the new hybrid F 580 large machine with 5800 kN clamping force . The concept of large F-machine was among the visitors consistently praise and approval. With this exhibit, a new dimension of large machines of the F-series has begun Ferromatik. Since the general trend is towards ever larger injection molding machines, plans Ferromatik more models with even higher clamping forces. Already this year, the first machine with 6500 kN to be ready. To see
Using a cube tool the company Fohoba (Germany) was the production of pre-forms with Mucell technology. The foamed core component causes after blow molding a metallic effect without the addition of metallic color components arises. This new optimization method was developed by Plastics Technology Inc. (PTI). Together with Fohoba (Germany) and Ferromatik PTI will now accelerate the international commercialization of this revolutionary system.
made on twin-screw extruder WPC decking
The sister company of Milacron group took advantage of the in-house exhibition also to showcase their products. Also present were DME, Mold-Masters, Kortec, Cimcool, Uniloy Milacron Cincinnati Milacron Extrusion Systems.Cincinnati Milacron Extrusion Systems demonstrated on a twin screw extruder of the type TP 75-26 the production of WPC decking. Uniloy Milacron showed the new all-electric injection blow molding machine UMIB 100 with 1,000 kN clamping force. The exhibition program was rounded off by a variety of presentations on the most diverse topics related to injection molding, referenced by employees of Ferromatik and the 35 partner exhibitors.
Ferromatik shows eight applications from the packaging sector
With eight applications from the packaging sector underlined Ferromatik its leading role as a manufacturer of injection molding machines for all areas of packaging technology. On display were the production of cups, buckets and various drinks pre-forming and screw caps. Both the co-injection molding as well as the Mucell procedures have been as special procedure applied.With the different product applications was also almost the entire F-series in function present. For all F-machines – available from 500 kN to 6500 kN – the tool movement and the plasticizing are driven electrically already in the standard. The aggregate motion, the ejector and injection done either electrically or hydraulically. For each application there is an optimum injection unit. The customer has the choice between the three performance classes GP, AP and HP with different high injection speeds.
