Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery (U.S. office in Strongsville, Ohio) has continued adding to the larger end of its Systec hydraulic toggle press series.
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.
Last month, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. (SHI) of Japan announced that it planned to acquire Demag Ergotech GmbH of Germany and Van Dorn Demag Corp. of Strongsville, Ohio, from MPM Holdings.
Last month, Japanese plastics machinery supplier Sumitomo Heavy Industries Ltd. confirmed that it was in talks regarding the acquisition of Demag Plastics Group, Schwaig, Germany, although no decisions had been made.
If you were looking for a new machine to mold micro- or mega-sized parts, multiple materials, long fibers, high-speed/high-cavitation packaging, exotic multi-material combinations with compounding on the machine, or just a cost-effective press for general-purpose use—K 2007 had it all.
At the big “K” Show next month, top billing goes to new all-electric machines aimed at every segment of the market, from general-purpose to high-end.
This month, Demag Plastics Group of Germany will end building of injection machines at the former Van Dorn facility in Strongsville, Ohio.
If you were buying an injection molding machine 20 years ago, you had to decide between a toggle or fully hydraulic clamp and that was pretty much it.
Mannesmann Plastics Machinery GmbH, Munich, the world’s largest maker of plastics and rubber machinery, announced a restructuring of its operations.
The drive to eliminate secondary operations is pushing multi-shot injection molding a step farther—toward assembling separate components in the tool via snap-fits, welding, and co-molding of incompatible materials.
An economical line of small hydraulic presses that can be delivered in two to four weeks is new from Demag Plastics Group in Germany (U.S. office in Strongsville, Ohio). The Extra EcQ series from 38.5 to 220 tons offers a choice of two injection units, four screw diameters, and two pump sizes for each clamp size.
Three mixing-screw geometries available with various compression ratios and L/Ds are new aftermarket products from Demag Plastics Group Corp., Strongsville, Ohio.
Advances in electric drive technology were evident in nearly every injection machine builder’s booth in Chicago.
Mannesmann Plastics Machinery (MPM) GmbH in Munich, Germany, the world’s largest maker of plastics and rubber processing machinery, is being purchased by Madison Capital Partners, a Chicago investment group, together with MPM managers.
Energy-saving all-electric machines will continue to be a big draw at NPE, where new designs or upgraded models will be found in virtually every press maker’s booth.
Injection MoldingSimplified Hot Runners Save Time & CostA new lower-cost hot-runner alternative to valve gating is suited to less critical cosmetic applications where users need predictable and reliable gate opening but not sequential gate operation.
Since January 2005, several hundred small injection molding machines have been produced on a new “progressive-assembly” or “paced-assembly” line at Demag Plastics Group in Wiehe, Germany.
Commercial applications in hollow-part molding with water—or water and gas—are starting to accelerate. They are driven by recent enhancements of process technology, equipment, and materials.
Multi-shot and coinjection molding techniques are staking out new territory. Mach ines are getting larger and are combining more materials or colors in more sophisticated and imaginative ways.
Molders were treated to a trove of injection machinery introductions geared toward applications from micro-molding to packaging to large parts.
The diversity of electric machines will be on display at this year’s show, with several new all-electric versions in direct-drive and belt-driven versions.
It’s the power to run your plant and machines better and more profitably. Today’s process and production monitoring systems put that information in the palm of your hand.
These two show-goers found what they needed at NPE.
