KraussMaffei Corporation, the affiliate of the KraussMaffei Group in the US, will organize an Open House from October 4-5 under the slogan "Our machines shape the world".

For the first time, the event takes place in the new TechCenter at the headquarters in Florence, Kentucky, which has recently quadrupled in size. Numerous technical presentations and booths featuring more than 70 partners round off the program.

Premiere of PX series in the US

"In the selected live applications on the new PX and on the CX and GX series by KraussMaffei, we demonstrate maximum productivity and flexibility in all-electric and hydraulic injection molding machines," said Paul Caprio, President of the KraussMaffei Corporation.

With its new PX series, KraussMaffei offers the advantages of an all-electric injection molding machines with high modularity. "Not only do our customers reap benefits from high diversity and flexibility in the configuration of the suitable machine, for example through our wide range of clamping unit and injection unit combinations, but also in production or in retrofitting," explained Caprio.

All machines are equipped with the new enhanced APC plus function (Adaptive Process Control), which ensures process reliability and a uniformly high component quality.

On the side of reaction process machinery, KraussMaffei will demonstrate its RimStar 40/16 mixing and metering system for polyurethane (PU). Further highlights include new mold carriers for instrument panel production, glass encapsulation (WinCap) and the production of steering wheels.

Netstal ELIOS 7500 under the limelight

The Netstal brand of KraussMaffei will feature its new ELIOS series at the event. The hybrid injection unit equipped with two-valve technology delivers the necessary performance for extreme flow path/wall thickness ratios over 350:1.

During the show, visitors are able to experience the ELIOS 7500 in action: At a cycle time of 3.9s, round lids weighing no more than 2.8g are produced from polypropylene (PP) in a 24+24 stack mold by StackTeck.

Meanwhile, an all-electric ELION 2800-870 produces 128 pipette tips every 5.6s. "With this application, we are focused upon North American producers of disposable materials in medical technology. Apart from pipettetips, these also include petri dishes, blood vials, medicinal beakers and syringes," said Caprio.

In addition, a cleanroom class up to ISO 5 can be reached using the MED-kit, serving the North American medical market for production of plastic components for insulin pens, lancing devices and sprays.

Expertise in pipe extrusion and compounding

"To the world of extruders, we demonstrate our expertise in pipe extrusion and compounding, technologies highly in demand on the American continent," said Matthias Sieverding, President of the Extrusion Technology Segment of KraussMaffei.

Exhibits include the ZE 65 BluePower, with higher torque density and larger available volume for highly filled PP, and the ZE 28 BluePower laboratory extruder, with a significantly expanded process and processing window for color masterbatch.

For the recycling of plastic waste, the company is exhibiting a ZE 40 UTXi, which produces high quality compounds from remnants of fibers and foils in a single step.

Additionally, a complete pipe system will produce polyvinyl chloride (PVC) drainpipes with a dimension of 168mm at SDR class 41. The core piece is the KMD 114-32/R twin-screw extruder with the KM-RK 23-250 pipe head, designed for an output of 1,000kg/h.

Another highlight of the series is waterless wall thickness measurement. The KMD 35-26/L laboratory extruder with the KM-GKA 200 pelletizing head demonstrates PVC pelletizing in an exemplary fashion.
