Smart Molding International 4-2022

28 smart_molding international 4/2022 machinery B MB’s goal is to aim at high pro- ductivity but give new breathing space to the packaging manufac- turers. With 4 production cells running during the exhibition, BMB conveyed the message of great reliability even for the most demanding applications, an example of which was a cycle time of 2.3 s. but with a particular focus on energy consumption reduction. If consumption can be contained with these fast cycles, the benefits are guaranteed. The machines were equipped with a new CNC control where the operator interface was improved thanks to a larger screen and the integration of some new digital functions. eKW70HP/3450 WP Hybrid The application involves the moulding of thin-walled round containers with wrap-around and bottom IML. A cycle time of 4.8 s. ensured the production of 8 containers with 2 labels each, monitored by cameras and then packaged. This systemwas a customized production cell which was to be shipped to the end user after the fair. Thanks to HolyGrail 2.0 technology, the label is able to show the content details through a smartphone. This important feature allows the transfer of multiple information that may relate to production, expiry date or recycling instructions. The cameras used in the recycling plants can in fact collect information on After the pandemic, a time full of great uncertainty that led to reduced investments in research and development and this in conjunction with the energy price increase is strongly affecting our lives, thus leading BMB to focus on energy savings for K 2022.
