Thin-wall injection compression moulding for stack mould technology

ENGEL’s stand at Fakuma 2021 put the spotlight on sustainability. The production of decorated monomaterial food packaging  and the processing of regrind from labelling waste is supporting circular economy by creating a process chain. At the same  time, the company was celebrating the world première of the 4,200 kN version of the ENGEL e-speed injection moulding  machine. The sophisticated packaging application combines extreme thin-wall injection compression moulding with stack  mould technology.

FCS pursues the target of carbon neutrality in the injection molding machine market

At the recent PLASTEC WEST FCS showcased the Advanced Servo Hydraulic Injection Molding Machine (FA Series), which was  based on the theme of food packaging containers and modular specification selection, flexible to meet the industrial  needs of food packaging and thin-walled containers. The FA-100 with a clamping force of 100 tons was presented at the  exhibition, producing 2-cavity mold of 14g cutlery with an average cycle time of 25 seconds. FA series is highly efficient, stable,  and energy-saving.

WITTMANN BATTENFELD presented new SmartPlus

The SmartPlus 180 exhibited at the Fakuma is the first model to be presented to the general public from a new machine series  entirely based on the concept of the proven SmartPower series from WITTMANN BATTENFELD. The name given to the  SmartPlus machine series has been derived from its large number of “smart” attributes, from the compact design of its  machine body, its intelligent, energysaving drive system and simple, central hydraulic clamping system, right up to injection  control via a highly dynamic servo drive.

Successful BOY-presence at Fakuma 2021

The Fakuma plastics trade fair started with high expectations also for the machine manufacturer BOY located in Neustadt-  Fernthal. After three years of abstinence, the event could take place again as a presence trade fair for the first time. Despite a  slightly lower number of visitors, the mediumsized company was highly satisfied. A new operating option via voice input  provoked a high demand potential. Many asked for information on possibilities and advantages of a voice control of injection moulding machines.

HASCO Streamrunner® with needle valve – the first additively manufactured needle valve system

Multiple hot runner applications with very narrow nozzle pitch dimensions are, especially when using valve gate technology, a  major challenge for designers. A needle drive needs space, which means that the distribution of the melt in the manifold is  usually associated with restrictions when using a valve gating system. With the HASCO Streamrunner®, the first additively  manufactured hot runner on the market, now completely new and space-saving options are also available for valve gate  systems.

Lightweight load compartment well for luxury sedans

LANXESS employs a range of calculation models, allowing it to precisely simulate the draping process and so predict and  analyze the forming effects and respond accordingly. Not only can LANXESS determine the optimum 2D cutting geometries of   he blank, but the forming behavior of the blank can be analyzed virtually and in line with the customer’s tooling concept so that  weaknesses can be identified and eliminated early on. This generates huge savings potential in the design of these processes.
