Arburg highlights medical and LSR technology (Booth: 5.1A41)

Arburg added the “Golden Electric” machine series with clamping forces from 600-2,000kN to its range in spring 2016 with the aim of facilitating cost-effective entry into all-electric molded part production.

An Allrounder 370 E Golden Electric with a clamping force of 600kN is used to demonstrate that these machines are also suitable for the precise production of medical technology parts.

The exhibit uses a two-cavity mold from Wellmei i to produce Y connectors for intravenous drip therapy in a cycle time of 18s. The finished polycarbonate (PC) molded parts are removed and set down by a Multilift Select linear robotic system.

Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) application is demonstrated by a hydraulic Allrounder 420 C Golden Edition with a clamping force of 1,000kN. The machine produces flexible LSR covers for the iPhone 6 in a cycle time of around 25s. The parts weigh 21g. The mold is provided by Prover, while the LSR dosing unit comes from 2 KM. A Multilift Select robotic system performs the handling tasks.

During the show, Arburg is also showing the potential of industrial additive manufacturing of functional parts. A Freeformer produces a spare part from PC for the aerospace industry.

Using 3D CAD data as a basis, the parts are produced from inexpensive qualified plastic granulates using Arburg Plastic Freeforming (APF).

AZO presents material handling solutions for PVC dryblend manufacturing (Booth: 5.1J33)

Germany-based AZO is introducing its bulk material handling solution for the manufacture of PVC dryblend.

Besides the major component PVC all raw materials except titanium dioxide (TiO2) and micro-ingredients are fed into the heating-cooling mixer by means of the vacuum conveying scale.

While PVC and filler materials are dosed into the conveying line and are weighed precisely in the conveying scale, the other components have their own scales in which product batches can be pre-weighed. These other components then also pass through the single-pipe system to the conveying scale.

This concept achieves a high level of dosing and weighing accuracy while at the same time achieving flexibility in the delivery of raw materials coupled with low building height.

With the help of a separate vacuum conveying system, TiO2 is conveyed into a buffer bin above the heating-cooling mixer from which it is dosed into a scale through a dosing screw. This scale empties directly into the mixer. This separate scale makes it possible to add TiO2 at a later point in time because its abrasiveness can cause severe wear to the mixer tool and to the bottom of the mixer.

TiO2 is so fine that it has high adhesion properties. It therefore has a tendency to clog and block rigid pipework. To counteract this, special flexible conveying lines have been installed. The TiO2 sticks to these less and the flexibility of the line also makes it easier to release again.

BOY XXS table top machine under the spotlight (Booth: 5.1J31)

In addition to a BOY 25 E with energy-efficient servo drive, the new table top machine BOY XXS is Dr. Boy’s focus. A BOY XS (100kN clamping force) complements its presence at CHINAPLAS.

Equipped with a servo drive, the BOY 25 E is one of the top hydraulic systems of Boy in terms of efficiency, precision and stability. The machine, with a clamping force of 250kN and a footprint of 1.8sqm, offers sufficient space with the free-standing clamping unit even for large-volume molds.

With four of the seven possible screw diameters a higher injection speed can optionally be achieved. The use of high speed pistons and a hydraulic pump with a 10% higher delivery volume, help improving the driving speeds, dynamic and shorten dry cycle time.

The second exhibit is the new BOY XXS with 63kN clamping force. A tried and tested screw plasticizing, which works according to the “first-in-first-out” principle and allows screw diameters between 8-18mm, offers plasticizing volumes from 0.06cm cube to 10.2cm cube. Beneficially are also the optimized clamping plates of the new BOY XXS especially for microforms of many standards manufacturers.

All exhibits are equipped with the multi-patented control Procan ALPHA, which offers high precision, dynamic and ease of use thanks to its multi-touch-capability. As a result, operating strategies such as scrolling screen pages or a change of pages by wiping – as with modern communication media – are possible.

A 15” full-touch display with LCD-LED technology convinces with screen pages with little text only and memorable symbols. The digital auxiliary function in the control that is used for the machine control in the national language is an additional positive aspect for the customers.

Another focal point of BOY is the injection molding of plastic parts on 3D-printed molds.

Realizing faster specimen production with Brabender SpeciMold (Booth: 5.1J21)

A new inline injection molding machine named SpeciMold for the quick, energy-saving production of samples is developed by Brabender in conjunction with UMSICHT, the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology.

Time plays a critical role in successful material development. In order to be able to obtain products with a custom characteristics profile and to really exhaust the potential of polymer materials, plastics suppliers and/or compound designers ideally need to be involved in the development process at an increasingly earlier stage.

In a “classic” workflow, the material sample is granulated in the laboratory extruder and then sent to the injection molder, which then creates the resulting sample – a time-consuming process.

However, the SpeciMold creates injection molded specimens for a multitude of common laboratory tests directly from the polymer sample destined for granulation – quickly and inline, i.e. directly from the extruded polymer flow.

Samples produced by the SpeciMold – e.g. dumbbell samples – more closely resemble the end product in terms of core physical characteristics than those manufactured in the conventional material development workflow using granulate that has already been melted.

The unit not only spares the developer the time-consuming task of sending the granulate to the injection molder, but also spares the material itself the disadvantage of having to be melted again before inspection.

A film extrusion feast from Brückner (Booth: 5.1A65)

German film stretching line specialist Brückner Maschinenbau is presenting numerous innovations for the cost-effective production of a wide variety of added-value plastic films.

Brückner’s film stretching lines reach a maximum width of 10.4m, speed up to 600m/min and a capacity of 65,000 tons/year (t/y). Combined with a once more increased energy and raw material efficiency this technology lowers film producers’ total cost of ownership (TCO) significantly.

In China the demand for high quality food packaging made of BOPA film is constantly rising. At CHINAPLAS, Brückner Maschinenbau presents the latest concepts for simultaneous and sequential BOPA lines with a working width of 6.6m, increasing the output and the productivity by a good 30%.

For specialty film manufacturing, Brückner has the following offerings:

- Optical film lines: Sequential and simultaneous technology for the efficient production of high value optical films

- Multi-layer technology: Multi-layer extrusion process for the production of complex five, seven or nine layer ultra-high barrier films.

- Battery separator film production lines: Wet battery separator film production or the patented Evapore “dry” line concept are available.

Brückner’s “Intelligent Line Management” is a completely new, integrated solution for an increased line availability, focusing on the process view as opposed to the usual machine view. This new operating concept is supported by several assistant systems which can also be upgraded with older lines.

EREMA demonstrates live efficient post-consumer recycling with INTAREMA system (Booth: 9.2A41)

EREMA is showing an INTAREMA TVEplus 1108 with Laserfilter in live action. This combination enables efficient recycling of heavily contaminated materials with different bulk densities. These range from film to regrind with cellulose contaminants such as paper, rubber or silicones which is processed to make high quality recyclates.

Post-consumer material, especially household packaging waste, was previously considered to be plastic which is difficult to recycle due to the fluctuations in quality of the materials, including for example the type of contaminant and the respective different degree of contamination. EREMA developed the INTAREMA TVEplus system especially for this type of plastics processing.

This unique combination is particularly suitable for material with a high degree of contamination when conventional melt filters are no longer able to deliver the necessary cleaning efficiency, according EREMA CEO Manfred Hackl.

Ewikon introduces micro-manifold technology for large scale production of polyolefins parts (Booth: 5.2A35)

As a new product Ewikon introduces the micro-manifold technology, a new standardized solution for the efficient large scale production of polyolefins parts in molds with an extremely high number of cavities.

Target branches are the packaging and medical industry where the technology is already successfully used in molds with up to 192 cavities.

The balanced micro-manifolds feature four screwed-in heat conductive tip inserts each with a melt seal directly at the gate. A fully balanced flow channel layout is then achieved by placing a main manifold on a second level.

Four gates only require one heating circuit. This reduces the expenditure for control technology as well as the amount of cables. Thus, considerably less space in the manifold frame plate is needed for wiring of the system.

Since a part of this space can be used to integrate additional support sleeves or domes into the plate, mold designs with micro-manifold technology are not only more compact but also clearly more stable when compared with conventional multi-cavity mold layouts.

Another advantage is the service-friendly system design. The tip inserts can be exchanged easily after removing the contour plate without the need to dismantle the manifold system. Ewikon offers complete hot halves with micro-manifold technology as 16, 32, 64, 96, 128 and 192-drop versions with standardized dimensions.

Developed in the director of Industry 4.0, the platform enables customer with automatic operation, multi-device networking and remote film diagnosis. In the production process, the Smartex can also realize remote activity allocation and order dispatching management.

For large plastic film makers, Smartex can help to build up their smart factory, and forming an intelligent processing control system. These film production enterprises can benefit from the reduction of operation workers and production costs as well as the enhancement for the machine capacity.

For small and medium plastic film makers, the platform can provide a mobile manufacturing management software. In other words, with mobile devices production managers are able to control and evaluate the running condition of the machines timely, such as forewarning machinery breakdown.

New KCC10 MK3 blow molding machine spearheads Kautex’s showing (Booth: 5.1C41)

Among other innovations, the KCC10 MK3 blow molding machine will headline Kautex Maschinenbau’s showing.

After Kautex Maschinenbau began gradually introducing the third generation of its successful KCC production series last year with the KCC20 MK3, a further step follows this year with the KCC10 MK3.

Since the introduction of the MK3 models, we have worked continuously on the new machine program. Several KCC20 MK3s have been delivered in the meantime and with the new KCC10, we are proceeding with the expansion of the program,” stated Geoffrey Chan, Executive Vice-President of Shunde Kautex, its subsidiary in China.

Kautex will also present a new generation virtual machine at the show. With this considerably further-enhanced tool, production processes for various types of machine and application scenarios are simulated and practiced in real time.

The exhibit will form part of the customer training facilities at its Shunde site. The factory has been manufacturing the all-electric KBB production series for the Chinese and South Asian market since 2016.

During the show, Kautex will be providing a shuttle service from the trade exhibition to its nearby Shunde plant. Various extrusion blow-molders from KCC to KBB can be viewed there at various stages of final assembly.

Kistler facilities Industry 4.0 operations (Booth: 12.1P25)

Kistler is launching its latest products and features with the focus on Industry 4.0, including ComoNeo 2.0 and ComoDataCenter 3.1.

The Restart Assistant is integrated into ComoNeo 2.0, making it possible for users to transfer established processes from one machine to another with no problems at all. To ensure identical quality reproduction in the new machine, this intelligent tool suggests which parameters need specific changes to ensure production with the same cavity pressure curve – i.e. with the same quality.

This automated analysis with application-specific suggestions results in an extremely simple application on the spot – even for users with no previous subject-specific knowledge about cavity pressure.

The ComoDataCenter 3.1 is enhanced with attractive new features that make it easier to network data and improve the traceability of part quality. For instance, the ComoDataCenter (CDC) is now available for ComoNeo as well. Thanks to this innovation, ComoNeo and CoMo Injection are linked via a common database.

Another new feature: mold management is now integrated into the CDC. The mold settings can be stored centrally − so for ComoNeo as well as CoMo Injection, they can be transferred to other plants via the CDC. For existing customers, this also ensures compatibility between CoMo Injection and ComoNeo – guaranteeing that CoMo Injection users can change over gradually to ComoNeo.

Networking of process monitoring systems means that all the production parameters can be stored centrally. When molds are changed, this data is easily accessed – so data handling becomes simpler and setup times are shortened.

Kuhne Anlagenbau shows expertise in multi-layer blown film lines (Booth: 5.1J01)

Kuhne’s Triple Bubble Technology stands for simultaneously, biaxially oriented high barrier blown films which are intended for packaging fresh red meat, bone meat, seafood and cheese and other highly perishable food items.

The company’s new modular extrusion and die system allows the production of film structures with up to 13 layers, with a 17-layer in target. It combines polyolefins, PA, EVOH and PET with a thickness ranging from 15-150µm.

Its patented water cooling technology provides a highly amorphous molecular structure which is essential for the subsequent biaxial orientation process in the second bubble.

At this process step pre-heating, film guiding and cooling have been optimized to allow proper orientation, even with critical (non- PA) polyolefins based barrier films.  The orientation of the macro- molecular structure is stabilized or relaxed in the annealing process (third bubble) to adjust the shrink characteristics of the final film in a range from 0-5% (for e.g. lid films) or 30-70% (for e.g. shrink bags).

When comparing the common method of packaging portioned fresh meat (MAP, PS or PET tray and lid film) with a Triple Bubble high barrier shrink bag a reduction of 90% of the packaging material and a nine times longer shelf life can be achieved.

Kuhne has newly developed polyolefins-based structures with a high content of polyolefins materials in combination with EVOH providing high shrinkage, outstanding barrier and mechanical properties, high clarity at low material cost – a challenge to cross linked PVDC films.

Another new application is the substitution of laminated film structures (e.g. PO+aluminum+BOPET, etc.) for bags, sachets, pouches, etc. by specifically tailored 11 or 13 layer Triple Bubble biax films.

Maag’s ZHULI underwater pelletizing system makes premiere (Booth: 5.1S61)

Moldex3D introduces latest R15.0 release (Booth: 5.2J41)

CoreTech System (Moldex3D) is introducing the latest release of Moldex3D R15.0, offering enhanced performance, accuracy and efficiency to streamline simulation workflow and provide faster turnaround times.

One of the most significant improvements in Moldex3D R15.0 is the reduction in pre-processing time and effort. The new runner meshing technology enables automatic generation of high-resolution hexahedral meshes and offers various node types for line runner connections to better capture the intended geometric shape of the runner design and deliver more accurate predictions.

Also, the extended non-matching mesh technology supports the automatic meshing of mold components to be non-matched, such as the interface between part and part insert/mold base in order to obtain accurate simulation results with minimal effort.

The new platform complements the current Moldex3D Designer and Moldex3D Project applications and enables users to display and compare simulation results of multiple designs simultaneously to shorten the product development time.

The fully coupled process simulation is a pioneering breakthrough in Moldex3D R15.0. Users can now take advantage of the new coupling technology which can simultaneously utilize Flow/Pack/Cool/Warp solvers to obtain optimal accuracy for simulating products of complex geometric designs or advanced manufacturing process like Rapid Heat Cycle Molding (RHCM).

Moldex3D R15.0 also provides new simulation capabilities for In-mold Decoration (IMD) and polyurethane (PU) chemical foaming process. The boundary condition application in the pre-processor of IMD simulation is made available the first time in commercial mold-filling analysis software to provide a quick and easy approach to meshing the decoration layers for simulation.

Moreover, the “wash-out Index” feature enables designers to better predict washout of the ink of the decoration film to ensure successful decorative products.

Nordson’s BKG BlueFlow gear pumps making Asian debut (Booth: 2.1F41)

Nordson Corporation’s BKG BlueFlow gear pumps are making its Asian debut in Guangzhou.

They provide up to 15% greater throughput without an increase in rpm and deliver a more consistent and stable polymer melt for enhanced product quality, according to the company.

BKG BlueFlow gear pumps are a new-generation product range that improves upon technologies developed separately by the Münster-based melt-filtration and gear pump business of Jan-Udo Kreyenborg, and by US-based Xaloy Corporation, both of which were acquired by Nordson in 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Chief among the improvements are:

- More efficient melt delivery, which makes it possible to achieve up to 15% greater throughput without increasing pump rpm; or reduce rpm to lessen shear stress on the polymer without sacrificing throughput.

- Better sealing performance and more sealing options. The full range of sealing types are now available worldwide. In addition to air- and water-cooled systems, alternative designs with cooling fins are also available.

- Improved control over melt parameters. The new gear pumps include pressure and temperature sensors at both the inlet and the outlet sides, contributing to more consistent melt properties and improved quality.

Besides providing improved performance, the new BKG BlueFlow design harmonizes options previously available separately in different parts of the world. The product range now includes three series: “EP” for standard extrusion; “MP” for processes involving frequent color changes or heat-sensitive polymers; and “RP” for discharge out of vessels and reactors where no vacuum is applied.

Pumps are available for the full spectrum of contingencies, including pumping capacities, pressure rates, and heating methods. While pumps are designated as “US” and “EA” (for Europe and Asia) because of regional differences in connecting and sealing, they all have the same core components, such as bearings, shafts, and sealing options. The availability of “US” and “EA” versions makes it possible to install BKG BlueFlow gear pumps as drop-in replacements for existing pumps.

A wide range of pumping capacities or specific volumes are available, ranging from 33-3,201cc/revolution, for throughput ranges up to 12,000kg/h. Each pump size comes with either electrical or fluid heating and with either US or EA connections. The gear pumps are for use with polymer viscosities from 2-20,000 Pas and at temperatures up to 350°C. All specifications are in metric units.

ProTec Polymer Processing launches five-strand laboratory LFT lines (Booth: 5.1R21)

ProTec Polymer Processing launches at CHINAPLAS a five-strand laboratory LFT lines for developing long fiber reinforced thermoplastics by pultrusion.

The laboratory lines allow LFT compounders to be more flexible and independent. By developing their own formulations in-house in parallel with ongoing production, line users can respond more rapidly to market requirements.

It has a narrower die width and are designed to handle five glass fiber or three carbon fiber strands. Otherwise, the design of the modules and their complete integration with materials handling components are the same as in ProTec’s conventional pultrusion lines.

A keystone of the line is a high-performance underfed compounding extruder equipped with a SOMOS Gramix S gravimetric dosing system capable of accurately dosing and mixing up to seven components. As a result, a wide range of individual formulations of the polymer matrix can be produced very flexibly directly in the process.

The Industry 4.0 capable SOMOS control/excellence controller means all modules can simply be selected centrally via a touch screen operator console: line speed, throughput of the underfed extruder and pellet chopping length can all be varied. SOMOS systems for drying, conveying, dosing and mixing the various material components are also integrated into the line controller. USB and SD ports mean that up to 1,000 custom formulations can be saved and reliably transferred to production.

Because SOMOS controllers are used for both the laboratory and the production lines, production parameters can be straightforwardly transferred, so minimizing downtime due to product changeovers. With their remote control function and internet access, the lines can be remotely serviced, optionally also via a WLAN hotspot.

AD*STAR block bottom valve sack takes center stage for Starlinger (Booth: 9.2C41)

Produced in a heat sealing process from coated polypropylene (PP) woven fabric, Starlinger AD*STAR block bottom valve sack outperforms other products in terms of break resistance and durability.

It is also versatile, economical and environmentally friendly – confirmed by a recent life cycle analysis, in which AD*STAR sacks scored better than either sewn cement sacks made from PP tape fabric or paper cement sacks.

This study, which compared AD*STAR cement sacks with cement sacks from China (sewn sacks made of recycled woven PP tape fabric) and Saudi Arabia (paper), shows that AD*STAR sacks have the lowest greenhouse potential of them all. Also by other criteria such as acidification potential, ozone depletion potential, energy and water consumption, they were more eco-friendly.

AD*STAR block bottom valve sacks are produced using a special heat sealing process on ad*starKON conversion lines from Starlinger. These lines achieve production speeds of 100-140 sacks per minute, operating on the basis of the heat sealing process patented by Starlinger.

ad*starKON conversion lines feature a wide range of product options: In addition to block bottom sacks with or without valve, as well as lined and BOPP laminated block bottom sacks, they can produce AD*STAR *carry bags and reicoSTAR block bottom sacks made of spunbonded fabric.

Synventive presents for the first time SVG+ hot runner system for sequential valve gating applications (Booth: 5.2A41)

Synventive, a business of Barnes Group Inc, is featuring its modular hot runner technologies with a key focus on delivering a stable process allowing for high part quality in challenging molding applications.

For the first time, Synventive presents the SVG+ hot runner systems, which feature numerous design enhancements offering superior performance and efficiency for sequential molding of large parts.

These hydraulic systems are equipped with the new modular actuators and the patent pending SynCool3 technology. It provides indirect cooling of the actuators via proprietary thermal conductors making contact with the cooled top clamp plate. This eliminates the use of cooling plates, of direct cooled actuators, and the installation of cooling lines for most applications.

For easy set up of sequential valve gated applications these systems are delivered with a Valve Monitoring Interface (VMI) for monitoring, diagnostics and troubleshooting from outside the molding machine. VMI provides measured individual pin movement data and opening times and allows operators to check that the valve pins are moving as intended.

For even more control, the SVG+ actuators are equipped with sensors that facilitate an easy upgrade to an activeGate control technology for a broad range of functions, from monitoring of pin movement to complete control of the pin and melt flow in applications driven by hydraulics, pneumatics or electric actuation.
