KraussMaffei leverages competencies of its three business units A circle has no beginning and no end. Circular Economy therefore means using materials that have been produced once again and again, thus saving CO2, raw materials and energy.

Retrofit of injection molding machines offers an easy and inexpensive extension of the lifetime of the injection molding machine. Take advantage of the Smart MC6 Upgrade.
The new series of injection molding machines combine economical production with high performance and quick availability. It will be presented at autumn fairs.
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.
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.
Michael Ruf (CEO of KraussMaffei) explains his plans to the company in an interview with the German newspaper K-Zeitung.
