On Wednesday, 7th September 2022, KUBOUŠEK and KraussMaffei held an Open Door Day at the production plant in Sučany. The visitors had a chance to see the preview of the new standardised precisionMolding range of an all-electric injection moulding machines.
“Make plastic green – with high quality and efficiency.” This is KraussMaffei’s slogan at K 2022 in Düsseldorf.
It gets hot in the screw barrel—and as little of that heat as possible is to reach the outside. This is ensured by the EcoPac insulating sleeves that can be wrapped around the cylinder and are available for all injection unit sizes.
If you alreday have a MC6 control with your KraussMaffei injection molding machine, you know the Weekly Timer, which is directly integrated into the system. But the Weekly Timer can be also retrofitted to older models and can thus reduce energy costs.
Digitalization accelerates the production process in various aspects and enables adjustments to be made at short notice. As a result, errors are corrected immediately and optimization potential is exploited directly – in order to save material and energy.
We live in a world in which processes are becoming increasingly complex. This also applies to the plastics industry. One way to support people in production with their demanding tasks is through digital tools – and not only on site at the plant, but also remotely.
Do you need advice on metal detection? What solutions do we offer for your production from the manufacturer MTF Technik? In the following article, you will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each detector and their appropriate use.
Ready, set – already in motion. Normally, the gripper waits for an enable signal from the injection molding machine before it moves into the open mold. With the “synchronous motion” function from KraussMaffei Automation, it starts faster, saving valuable cycle time.
The potential of digitalization in injection molding production is nowhere close to being exhausted. Nadine Despineux, Executive Vice-President Digital and Service Solutions at KraussMaffei, talks about the opportunities and solutions available to make use of the advantages of Industry 4.0.
Michael Ruf (CEO of KraussMaffei) explains his plans to the company in an interview with the German newspaper K-Zeitung.
