A handful of BOYs
BOY to demonstrate five machines at the Plast 2012
A high-speed application will be demonstrated on a BOY 55 E (550 kN clamping force) equipped with a servo drive. The many advantages of the servo drive will become obvious with this application. Since the introduction of the servo motor pump drive in 2008, more and more users have selected these energy efficient E-Series machines from BOY. A savings from lower energy consumption is realized with every injection cycle. Due to energy savings of up to 75 % when compared to other drive technologies, the BOY E-Series machines can reduce part costs considerably.
The BOY 35 E (350 kN clamping force) is the most compact machine in its tonnage category. The BOY 35 E offers generously spaced tie bar and platen distances and has a footprint of only 1,9 m². During the PLAST 2012, the BOY 35 E will produce rubber O-rings. A parts removal device will be safely positioned right above the clamping unit.
The insert moulding of metal parts will be demonstrated on a BOY 22 A VV (clamping force 220 kN), which is configured with a vertical clamping and vertical injection unit. Hexagon shaped metal screws will be inserted into a two-cavity mould and injected onto a t-handle. The BOY 22 A VV features a fixed lower platen, so part placement is always secure. The machine has generous tie bar spacing and its design is ideal for automation.
The sprueless production of parts will be shown on a BOY XS (100 kN clamping force). Another BOY XS will demonstrate a liquid silicone rubber (LSR) application. The BOY XS, which is the smallest machine in the BOY product offering, is designed for an industrial 24/7 production environment. Like all BOY injection moulding machines, it is equipped with the high-end Procan ALPHA control. Intuitive, easy to use and highly precise are just some of the outstanding advantages of this multi-patented control from BOY.
When you consider the interesting selection of machines, the latest servo-drive technology and the many interesting applications, BOY will surely provide many highlights during the Plast 2012.
