    battenfeld-cincinnati is fit for the future

      polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    At K 2019, battenfeld-cincinnati will be showcasing several models with innovative features from its wide range of extruders (Hall 16, Booth B19).

    Its one-of-a-kind standard extruder is suitable for manufacturing small technical profiles, and has carved out an established position in the market over the past 18 years as a cash-and-carry product, with some 1,200 sold to date.

    The latest innovation to be presented at K will be the alpha plus, a compact plug-and-play extruder with technical attributes.

    The proven BCtouch UX solution is the foundation of the new control system platform. A high-performance temperature-monitoring module is integrated in the compact control system, which is handy for temperature-sensitive raw materials.

    In, the battenfeld-cincinnati booth will also be demonstrating the solEX New Generation 75-40D, a high-performance single-screw extruder that offers three key advantages: outstanding melt homogeneity, low melt temperatures, and low energy consumption.

    This extruder delivers an exceptionally long service life with low wear and little maintenance required.

    The optimised NG processing unit is designed to be retrofitted onto an older solEX model with ease. The NG focus technology is delivering such strong results that battenfeld-cincinnati has made it available for the uniEX range of single-screw extruders, effective immediately.

    Retrofitting is also possible in this case.

    The STARextruder 120, in which battenfeld-cincinnati has developed a machine concept dedicated specifically to processing PET, will also be present at K. Basic structure consists of a single-screw extruder whose with a central planetary roller section where the melted material is rolled out into very thin layers, producing an enormous melt surface that is a breeze to degassing and devolatilise.

    The STARextruder can be used to process both non-predried new materials and any kind of recycled materials, as confirmed by its US FDA approval.

    There is still a huge amount of untapped potential in the possibilities that this system can offer, especially in the context of the circular economy. As numerous trials have demonstrated, it is also capable of delivering outstanding processing and decontamination results for other materials besides PET.

      polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Gneuss  Filtration Technology will exhibit several different models of their patented Rotary Filtration Systems at the K trade fair this year (Hall 9, Booth A38).

    These continuous filtration systems are characterised by a filter disk on which the screen cavities are located in a ring pattern. Screens can be changed on the part of the filter disk that is not active in the melt channel, while the production process continues to run without any interruptions or disturbances.

    The new SFneos was developed to combine the characteristics of several older models into one simple and cost-efficient solution.

    The SFneos filtration system is suitable for applications that benefit from a continuous, pressure and process constant screen changer, but that don’t require back-flushing. The SFneos 90 the company will display has an active screen area of 260cm2.

    Gneuss will also exhibit two KF screen changers, a KF 75 with an active screen area of 44cm2, and a KF 110 with an active screen area of 95cm2, which will be installed in a blown film line at Brazilian machinery manufacturer Carnevalli’s booth (Hall 16, Booth C70).

    Gneuss Extrusion Technology will show a complete Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) including a second generation Multi Rotation System MRS110 extruder, a fully automatic melt filtration system RSFgenius 90 and a new style online viscometer VIS, for the processing of 600kg/h of undried and uncrystallised polyester (PET).

    The Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) has been available for more than a decade now and has proven itself for the reprocessing of highly contaminated materials without pre-drying, especially bulky PET waste such as post-consumer bottle flakes and industrial waste from fibre and film manufacture, as well as polystyrene, nylon and other hydrophil polymers.

      polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Kiefel GmbH has created the Speedformer KMD 78.2 Speed to showcase at K2019 in Düsseldorf (Hall 3, Booth E90), where visitors are invited to experience the machine live.

    The new generation of Kiefel steel rule machines offers the usual quality with even greater productivity and energy efficiency.

    Erwin Wabnig, Director Packaging Division at Kiefel, said: "The new generation of machines is fast and reliable. Operators, even without specific training, can operate them intuitively. Ergonomics and data transparency are a matter of course. And of course, in addition to common materials and products, our new system can also process novel film materials and produce even complex products whilst consuming a minimal amount of energy."

    The Kiefel designers focused on higher productivity, process control and availability, as well as trend-setting intuitive user guidance with considerable added value in operation and maintenance.

    The new KMD generation not only saves energy, but film. A newly developed film feed table guides the film to the film transport system. The proven station drives stabilise and work symmetrically, and the optimised forming air vacuum system enables customers to produce superior moulded parts.

    The ergonomic tool change systems, one among many improvements, can significantly shorten set-up times too.

    Intelligent User Guidance

    ‘Simple and intuitive’ is the motto of human interaction with the KMD 78.2 Speed. Pictograms and graphics, some animated, support the adjustment of machine parameters and aid fault diagnosis and rectification if necessary.

    The new KMD generation only needs a few parameters to be input, the rest are automatically determined by onboard algorithms. The display shows the entire forming process and other important functions are just a click away.

    Wabnig added: "In order to optimally adapt the new KMD generation for our customers, we have increased our requirements. On this basis, we have developed a state-of-the-art system in co-operation with universities, and internal and external experts, that simplifies our customers' daily manufacturing."

  • Roemheld Rivi to promote magnetic die clamping at K

     

    Roemheld Rivi to promote magnetic die clamping at K

      polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Last year Roemheld Rivi, a manufacturer of magnetic clamping plates for securing dies and moulds, enjoyed growth in sales in all areas of the plastics processing industry, as well as in forming technology.

    In 2019, order numbers and revenue continue to grow with products now available in the UK through Roemheld UK, Hitchin.

    At the k 2019 trade fair, the company will not only stress its prominence in both the plastics and rubber industries. It is the only magnetic die clamping company to have the technology to operate in the latter sector due to the ability of its M-TECS series plates to withstand temperatures up to 240°C.

    Dies and moulds made from ferromagnetic materials can be clamped and subsequently released over their full surface area and high plate stiffness resists bending. The systems work without electrical power and require only a short current pulse lasting a few seconds to activate and deactivate the magnets.

    Permanent magnets generate a field that penetrates a few millimetres into the tool and hold even heavy mould halves weighing several tonnes in the correct position, bringing them together with absolute parallelity.

    Even moulds with complex geometries can be precisely clamped without deformation. Uniform distribution of the clamping force ensures low die wear.

    Every magnetic clamping system is customised by Roemheld Rivi using standardised components and is virtually maintenance-free. Solutions can be configured flexibly with regard to size, geometry, clamping force and fittings, and are available on short delivery. They can generally be retrofitted to existing machines within just a few hours.

    Also to be announced at K 2019 is the formation of a new network comprising 15 service locations throughout Europe and one each in the US, China and Japan.

    Intensively trained Roemheld Rivi engineers will provide enhanced support for customers in their native languages, and each centre will have access to replacement parts to speed service and support.

      polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    At this year’s K Show SIGMA Engineering will align its booth concept with the motto ‘SIGMAinteract – Autonomous Optimization connects departments’ and present its new SIGMAinteract.

    In a co-operation project, SIGMA will show how to use virtual DoE during the entire development process. With SIGMAinteract, results are displayed interactively and in 3D. Thus, its usage makes knowledge tangible and easy to share.

    At the SIGMA booth in Hall 13, Booth B31, this immediately becomes visible with a completely new design concept.

    Making informed decisions throughout a project requires involvement from partners in various departments. This means project data must be provided to each participant and they will need free and easy access to it. Therefore, SIGMA presents its new SIGMAinteract so that users can share SIGMASOFT results interactively and in 3D.

    Visitors can experience and use SIGMAinteract live at the booth, where SIGMA will demonstrate how virtual DoE is used most efficiently and how the SIGMAinteract tool significantly contributes to a good interdisciplinary exchange. As a demonstration, SIGMA uses the project ‘Pot Cloth’, which was realised as a collaborative project with Momentive Performance Materials GmbH, Germany, EMDE MouldTec GmbH, Germany, Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH, Austria, and Nexus Elastomer Systems GmbH, Austria.

    In this project part design and tool construction were done in parallel. Therefore, it was necessary for all partners to work closely together. Simultaneously, SIGMA conducted a virtual DoE for the validation of the part design and the evaluation of the heating concept.

    At the SIGMA booth visitors can also virtually observe the production of the ‘Pot Cloth’ live. It will be produced on a SmartPower 90/350, control UNILOG B8, from Wittmann Battenfeld. The LSR injection moulding tool, including the cold runner system, was constructed by EMDE MouldTec. The system is completed by a ServoMix X200 dosing system from Nexus Elastomer Systems. Silopren LSR 2640 from Momentive Performance Materials is used as material for the production.

  • Wilmington Machinery delivers engineering breakthroughs and increased moulding capacities

     

    polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Wilmington Machinery has built and installed two vertical structural foam presses for a customer looking for a machine more suitable than a horizontal press, but with all the advantages vertical presses provide.

    The two new large vertical type low-pressure structural foam presses accept between one and six moulds mounted and can produce one to 20 components per cycle. Each vertical press mould is filled independently and precisely by Wilmington’s proprietary Versafil injection system.  

    To meet customer demands, Wilmington re-engineered the MP800 injection unit to incorporate a first-in, first-out, reciprocating screw of 30:1 L/O and an in-line accumulator arrangement. The design maintains the ability to compound both virgin and recycled resins with various fibrous and non-fibrous additives for strength and reducing the cost of the moulded component. 

    Direct gas injection into the extruder barrel provides large part thin-wall structural foam moulding. The machine is also capable of non-foamed moulding of medium-sized parts. 

    The MP800 model retains its capability of both cold and hot runner moulds using either short shot (foam) or pack/hold moulding techniques. 

    A second complete Wilmington Machinery plastic pallet moulding system has also recently been delivered to a European customer. 

    The US-based company is inviting attendees to its stand (Hall 13, booth B91-19) at this year’s K trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.
