GREAT MACHINES - compactly designed
A total of six machines will be demonstrated at the BOY booth, which will be located in "West Hall B", booth #2819 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. All machines will be equipped with the patented Procan APLHA control.
The BOY E-Series Servo-Drive System has proven to be very efficient and economical. This drive system offers increased speed and accuracy. In addition, it is quieter and substantially more energy-efficient than other available drive systems. The E-Series machines will be front and center of BOY's presentation at this year's NPE.
Small Footprint - Great Reliability
BOY is a leader in "Micro and Sprueless Single Cavity Molding" applications. This will be demonstrated by two of the BOY XS series injection moulding machines (100 kN). The standard horizontal machine will process pin and grommet parts. It will feature the sprueless nozzle technology and produce parts with a shot weight of less than 2.6 grams. The BOY XS V features insert moulding applications. During the exhibition the BOY XS V will process Liquid Silicone Rubber. A medical needle will be overmoulded.
BOY E-Series - Efficiency at its best
The BOY 22 E (220 kN clamping force) is the newest machine to feature the E-Series Servo-Drive System. This well-proven design has been further improved with the latest technology. In comparison with previous models, the BOY 22 E consumes up to 70% less energy and can increase production output by up to 25%. The BOY 22 E will demonstrate it's increased efficiency and performance by producing airline drinking cups from PS weighing 10.7 grams with a cycle time of 3.8 seconds.
Insert moulding and "parting line" applications play a large role in injection moulding. BOY offers several machines to fill that requirement. During NPE 2012, BOY will demonstrate the BOY 35 E VH (350 kN clamping force). This machine, designed for parting line applications, features a vertical clamping unit and a horizontal injection unit.
A BOY 55 E (550 kN clamping force) will demonstrate the speed and efficiency of the BOY E-Series machines. The BOY 55 E will be equipped with a servo-drive and will produce paper clips from a sixteen-cavity mould. The fast cycle time and parts repeatability will further demonstrate why the BOY E-Series machines are the smartest choice for customers today.
Two shot capabilities
The BOY solution for two-component injection moulding combines a BOY 90 E (900 kN clamping force) with a vertically mounted injection unit. The moulding of safety glasses will be demonstrated. The lenses, including the front frame, will be made from a highly transparent PP. The second injection unit, which is based upon the ultra compact BOY XS and is equipped with its own hydraulic drive and control, will mould the side frames from a colored PP. The unit offers a plasticizing volume of 8,0 cubic centimeter and achieves injection pressures of up to 3.128 bar.
The controls of both machines communicate with each other via special interfaces and assure a seamless process during the entire injection moulding cycle. The second injection unit can be arranged in various positions on the basic machine. It is designed for use on different machines.
As shown, the injection unit is placed vertically above the two-component mould, although a lateral installation is possible. The drive unit, which includes the control, is positioned beneath of the machine. The open nozzle plasticizing unit is connected to the injection unit for the second component through a corresponding adjustable high-pressure hose line. Its compact design enables countless application possibilities when considering two-component injection moulding.
