Netstal underscores its performance leadership at Fakuma with the ELIOS 4500-2900.
Netstal underscores its performance leadership at Fakuma with the ELIOS 4500-2900.

At Fakuma 2018, Netstal will demonstrate its performance leadership in the thin-walled packaging segment. The company will be showcasing the ELIOS 4500, the model with the smallest clamping force in a series built for top performance.

With an ELIOS 4500-2900, 12 cm polypropylene plant pots will be manufactured in a Glaroform mold with six cavities. In order to make sure that things don't get boring, the pots will be injection-molded in various colors. UCC is providing the color master batches. A Brink Automation robot will remove and stack the finished pots.

During this application, the ELIOS 4500 will operate with a cycle time of approx. 3 seconds. The flow path/wall thickness ratio is 331:1.

"The ELIOS series has been a total hit with regard to performance, precision and energy efficiency. Our customers from the demanding packaging industry heap effusive praise on the series because it gives them decisive competitive advantages," explained Netstal CEO Renzo Davatz.

Hybrid drive concept for maximum performance and lowest energy consumption
Thin-walled plant pots with a flow path/wall thickness ratio of 331:1 will be manufactured at Fakuma using an ELIOS 4500-2900.
"A key factor for the success of Netstal's ELIOS series is the unique drive system of the clamping unit with electrical movement and the hydraulically supported generation of the complete clamping force," added Davatz.

Expressed in numbers using the example of the machine at the trade fair, this means a 1.5-second dry cycle with a clamping force of 450 tons. Thanks to a high efficiency and the recuperation of kinetic energy, the operation of the ELIOS machines is also extremely energy-efficient. The consumption of the trade fair exhibit is approx. 0.59 kilowatt hours per kilo of material, which translates to 9 watts per pot.

"Together with our high-performance injection units with dynamic two-valve technology and the many custom equipment options, with ELIOS we are offering our customers a performance package that is currently unrivaled on the market," said Davatz.

Production monitoring with AnalytiX

Mobile production monitoring with AnalytiX.Control and complete traceability are issues that are becoming increasingly important.

"Producers want the ability to effortlessly monitor their production, and they also want to be able to quickly identify and eliminate disturbances. With our AnalytiX mobile production monitoring system, Netstal users always have their entire injection-molding production at their fingertips in the form of an app," said Davatz.

The automated analyses of processes and machine conditions save time, and offer efficiency increases to the customers. Using intelligent indicators, trends and performance deviations of individual machines can be detected at a glance.

All information is hosted in the secure Netstal cloud in Switzerland and is not accessible to third parties. User management and the granting of access rights are controlled entirely by the customer and can be set up flexibly via the new Netstal e-Service.
