El-Exis SP is the ultra-high-speed hybrid series of injection molding machines.
El-Exis SP is the ultra-high-speed hybrid series of injection molding machines.

At Fakuma 2018, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH has chosen the motto of “Precision. Power. Productivity.” to showcase the company’s commitment in three core target markets, which are medical, packaging and automotive.

This year, the IntElect S will run a medical engineering application to demonstrate the new all-electric machine series for high-speed parts. An El-Exis SP 200 will run a high-speed IML application from the packaging segment and a versatile Systec Servo with advanced IMD technology, a new design and functional integration for the core segment of automotive applications.

New launch of all-electric high-speed IntElect S machine

The launch of the compact high-speed version of the IntElect S at Fakuma 2018 will also mark the beginning of a new era for the German-Japanese injection moulding machinery manufacturer.

The IntElect S injection moulding machines are available with clamping forces between 500 kN and 1,800 kN and with injection speeds between 350 and 500 mm/s. They are specially built for high-speed applications with cycle times between 3 and 10 seconds.

Thanks to its optimised configuration of motors and drives, this model outperforms standard IntElect machines in terms of mould movements, injection and metering speeds and ejector movements, which translates into significantly reduced cycle times.

“Our experience with about 60,000 all-electric machines delivered company-wide has shown us that it was time for a step ahead,“ CEO Gerd Liebig explained. “Our in-house drive technology has advanced to a level that delivers not only fast cycle times and unparalleled process stability but also guarantees maximum energy efficiency.

Meanwhile, at the stand, the company will premiere an IntElect S 130/520-450 with a package of options specially developed for medical engineering requirements, ensuring a clean production environment.

The 32-cavity pipette application focuses on quality assurance, traceability and supports customers with their product validation. The system is equipped with a Max Petek laminar flow hood and connected to a master computer from bfa solutions, which ensures the perfect traceability of process data as well as monitoring changes to the set machine data.

“The special solution that was tailored to our NC5 control and delivers real-time visualisation, and traceability guarantees maximum product safety for our system,” Anatol Sattel, Key Account Manager Medical Applications at Sumitomo (SHI) Demag explained.

“Not only does this solution provide a better overview of the process, it also facilitates the normally very complex documentation tasks for quality management and assurance,” Sattel continued.

El-Exis SP 200 with high-speed IML application

As introduced by Arnaud Nomblot, Director Business Development Packaging at Sumitomo (SHI) Demag, the fourth generation El-Exis SP is one of the fastest injection moulding machines in the world.

With its dynamic hybrid drive and intelligent accumulation control, the El-Exis SP not only delivers an impressive performance in terms of acceleration, mould movement and deceleration but also outstanding process constancy and precision paired with an extremely energy efficient production.

The live demonstration at the stand is a perfect example for complex packaging processes: a production unit with a high-volume output, low part weight, in-mould labelling and cycle times below 3 seconds.

In a four-cavity mould (Simon), this system produces decorated food cups from polypropylen (Borealis). It is equipped with an automation solution (Beck Automation). A high-speed side-entry robot places the labels (Verstraete) into the fixed mould half, while removing the finished cups from the moving mould half and stacking them.

Systec Servo: IMD technology with new decoration and functional integration

With a versatile, energy-efficient Systec Servo 280/630-1450 with integrated functional unit for decoration, curing, purging and quality control, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag presents its contribution to the IMD surface decoration segment.

Together with its partner Leonhard Kurz, the company will present an automotive application: a door sill with a new day/night design is initially decorated by IMD and then covered with functional foil for touch functionality. All IMD process steps are integrated in a production unit with automation that was specially standardized for IMD applications.

The integration of production and process data into a higher-level MES has made both the quality and the production performance more transparent and controllable. A unique data matrix code identified each individual part and ensures its traceability even at the next production stage.
