At the FIP Solution Plastique 2022 in Lyon taking place from 5 to 8 April, WITTMANN BATTENFELD will present highly efficient injection molding technology together with ultra-modern automation and auxiliaries to interested trade visitors. The FIP Solution Plastique is the leading trade fair platform of the plastics processing industry in France. At this fair, WITTMANN BATTENFELD will be present with three injection molding systems. All three of these stand out by their extremely high energy efficiency.

LSR application on SmartPower COMBIMOULD
With a multi-component machine from the servo-hydraulic SmartPower series, a SmartPower 120/130H/130S COMBIMOULD LSR, a mobile phone holder will be manufactured from PC and LSR, using a 1+1 transfer mold with a needle shut-off cold runner supplied by Elmet, Austria. The machine will be equipped with a W921 robot, a TEMPRO plus D2 140 dual-circuit temperature controller and an ATON plus 30 dryer, all from WITTMANN, as well as a Top 5000P metering pump from Elmet. The LSR used from Momentive is Siloprene LSR 2759, a material characterized by excellent adhesion to the PC provided by Covestro. The material loading system for the thermoplastic component is geared to handling extremely small quantities, to avoid remoisturizing after transport.

In addition to their compactness and user-friendliness, the machines from the SmartPower series stand out above all by their intelligent, thrifty use of energy, due to the combination of a fast-response, speed-controlled, air-cooled servo motor with a robust constant displacement pump, known as the “Drive on Demand” system.

Complete integration with EcoPower 55 production cell
WITTMANN BATTENFELD will demonstrate its digitization expertise at the FIP with the production of a medical part. The machine to be used is an all-electric EcoPower 55/350, equipped with the software packages HiQ Flow for compensating viscosity fluctuations, HiQ Melt for material quality monitoring and HiQ Metering for active closing of the check valve.

Equipment integrated in the machine’s UNILOG B8 control system via WITTMANN 4.0 will include a WITTMANN W918 robot, a gravimetric dosing unit GRAVIMAX 14, an ATON plus 70 segmented wheel dryer and three temperature controllers from the TEMPRO plus D series, as well as the TEMI+ MES system. The web browser included in the UNILOG B8 control system also provides access to the TEMI+ MES system. The production cell interlinked by WITTMANN 4.0 supports electronic mold data sheets, and is thus able to check whether the auxiliary appliances connected to it are sufficient for the selected product data set, or whether additional equipment is needed.

The automation system is implemented via an Easy Cell developed and manufactured by WITTMANN BATTENFELD Deutschland in Nuremberg. The Easy Cell requires no safety gate and thus takes up only a minimal amount of space beside the injection molding machine. In spite of its compact design, customers receive the complete range of CE-compliant safety features.

MicroPower 15/10H/10H COMBIMOULD
WITTMANN BATTENFELD will demonstrate its expertise in the field of multi-component injection molding of micro parts with a MicroPower 15/10H/10H producing a 2-component plug for the sound carrier head of a vinyl record player made of PC and electrically conductive PC, using a single-cavity mold supplied by Ortofon, Denmark. The conductive PC features an extremely low conductivity resistance, which ensures excellent signal transmission. The machine is equipped with an integrated camera system and a WITTMANN W8VS4 Scara robot for fully automatic quality inspection and parts removal.

WITTMANN automation and auxiliaries
In addition to the robots and auxiliary appliances connected to the machines on display, numerous robots and auxiliaries from WITTMANN will also be shown as stand-alone solutions at the FIP in Lyon.
