There were new presses of all stripes aplenty at K 2010, but the “wow” factor was supplied by automated work cells and integrated manu-facturing systems performing multiple operations before, during, and after molding.
Beltless direct-drive electric machines and upgraded electric/hydraulic hybrids were introduced at the 20th Fakuma trade exhibition in Friedrichshafen, Germany, last month.
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH in Germany signed a global agreement with Sepro of France to integrate Sepro robots with Demag NC5 injection machine controls.
The IntElect series of all-electric machines will be optimized and expanded, with the first releases planned for year’s end, says Dr.
