KraussMaffei extends clamping force range of its CX series

News 20.06.2016

PM IMM 2016 06 CX 350-2000

With the new CX series with clamping forces ranging from 2000 to 4200 kN, KraussMaffei is supplementing its successful concept for the small CX series.

Significantly improved energy balance
The focus of the newly devised hydraulic concept was on the energy-efficient optimization of the overall machine. "With the new generation of the CX series with clamping force ranging from 2000 to 4200 kN, we offer our customers an especially economical and precise two-platen machine," says Dr. Hans Ulrich Golz, President of the Injection Molding Machinery segment in the KraussMaffei Group and Managing Director of KraussMaffei. In total, the energy efficiency was already improved by 10 per cent for the basic machine. The BluePower clamping block was redesigned with regard to flow dynamics. This means a saving potential of 40 per cent in the clamping movement. In addition, the travel movements are noticeably smooth and extremely precise.

How consistent the optimized efficiency is can also be seen in the new state-of-the-art drive concept (IE3 types). Further energy-saving potential (10 to 40 per cent) is also provided by the BluePower ServoDrive. An active accumulator management system completes the overall concept. Other advantages result from the service life of the oil being increased by at least 25 per cent. This is possible thanks to a new filter concept. Less shearing means longer oil service life. This is assured by converting to a bypass oil filter/cooling system.

The electric screw drive for plasticizing ensures parallel plasticizing, the accumulator ensures a greater injection rate.

Compact two-platen machine
The CX has been known on the market for many years as a compact two-platen machine, and even occupies less space than longer three-platen models. Under the clamping unit, it provides space for peripheral devices and all kinds of demolding systems. Innovative integrated automation solutions follow this basic idea, for example the inclusion of a conveyor within the machine housing. This saves considerable production space and thus basic costs.

Because the noise emissions have been reduced by means of additional sound insulation and gentler oil preheating, injection molding production and assembly workplaces can be especially closely coordinated with each other. Access for service and maintenance purposes has also been improved.

Maximum flexibility
Anyone manufacturing various articles needs a high degree of flexibility in the machinery pool in order to be able to react quickly to all customer requirements. "With us, all customers will find the perfect machine for their specific needs, from the wage-earning injection molder to the technology corporation. Using various modules, they can configure their respective machines individually in accordance with their own requirements," says Golz.A high level of flexibility here is ensured, for example, by the integrated water battery, the automatic tie-bar retraction device and the BluePower efficiency package in the KraussMaffei options catalog. Here, the new CX is the effective basis for further technologies, for example physical foaming (MuCell), multi-component injection molding (Multinject), the processing of organic sheets (FiberForm), silicones (SilcoSet) and thermosets (PolySet and DuroSet).
