German machines at the Swiss Plastics Expo

German machines at the Swiss Plastics Expo

News 10.01.2020

The German machine manufacturer located in Neustadt-Fernthal starts the 2020 trade fair season with two injection moulding machines from its wide range BOY product programme. The Swiss Plastics Expo opens its doors in the beautiful Lucerne from 21 - 23 January. A versatile BOY 35 and a very compact BOY XS will be presented at the booth of the Swiss BOY agency Thomatech GmbH.


BOY 35 E

In cooperation with the Institute of Plastics Technology of the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland FHNW, the project "How a plastic part is made" is clearly illustrated. During the three-day event Espresso cups are produced on the BOY 35 E. These will be provided with a hologram (made available by the company Morphotonix). The mould was developed by students of the 5th and 6th semester and enhanced in relation to digitization and Industry 4.0 by the Institute of Plastics Engineering FHNW in cooperation with the company Priamus. Furthermore, an Espresso cup will be presented, produced of a plastic fortified with a special dye which creates an impressing discolouration of the cup in case of heat exposure.

With its energy-efficient servo drive, the four tie-bar injection moulding machine BOY 35 E will impress the visitors of the internationally-oriented trade fair with its dynamic and smooth running.

This is how Stefan Imhof, Managing Director of Thomatech, puts it in a nutshell: "The BOY 35 E with a clamping force of 350 kN offers our customers maximum flexibility, performance and efficiency. Especially this machine size is very well received here in Switzerland. "

The presence of BOY at the Swiss Plastics Expo will be complemented by a compact BOY XS (100 kN clamping force). Designed for industrial continuous operation, this BOY injection moulding machine always offers new perspectives for micro- and sprueless single-cavity injection moulding.

Both, the BOY XS and the BOY XXS with an even smaller clamping force do not use the standard piston plasticizing with this machine size - they have a screw plasticizing of 8 to 18 mm according to the "First in first out" principle.

The entire Thomatech exhibition team is already looking forward to the event. The BOY agency based in Kriens takes care of the Swiss market and offers - in addition to sales and competent advice – an extensive range of services.
