BOY at Interplastica in Moscow

(PresseBox) (Neustadt, ) In bitterly cold Moscow, the Interplastica plastics fair really fired up the trade visitors. With interesting applications and a plurality of producing machines, the ice was quickly broken. The BOY booth - which was organized by the Russian distributor BIM Engineering for the first time on their own - was also very well attended by the fair visitors during the four-day exhibition.

With two machines, BOY showed a selection of its product range. On a BOY XS (100 kN clamping force) equipped with the latest multi-touch Procan ALPHA ® 2 control, technical parts for the automotive industry were produced. A BOY 55 E (550 kN clamping force) produced highly transparent rulers with circular hole templates and inking edges. The precise measuring instrument with an integrated magnifying lens was a useable, take home reminder of a visit to the Interplastica for many of the attendees.

With the compact BOY 55 E injection moulding machine (footprint of only 3,67 m²) BOY, the specialist of injection moulding machines with clamping forces up to 1.000 kN, provided proof of their claim to produce energy-efficient machines. The servo-drive of the BOY E-Series is a drive technology that outclasses conventional hydraulic drive systems in terms of efficiency, precision and quietness. In a direct comparison to electromechanical drives, the BOY technology wins in multiple ways with a servo-drive with a lower connected load, lower initial costs, lower spare part prices as well as reduced wear.

All BOY injection moulding machines with a screw diameter greater than 24 mm can be optionally equipped with the new EconPlast unit. The new BOY plasticizing system reduces the energy consumption during the melting of plastics by up to 50%. The combination of the servo-drive and the EconPlast unit clearly results in lower total energy consumption when compared to previous machine technologies. This is a crucial step towards a more efficient parts production.

BOY goes smart

All BOY injection moulding machines are equipped with the new, multi-patented Procan ALPHA ® 2. The main difference of the new system is the multi-touch capability. Like with modern communication devices, operating functions like scrolling or page changes are now achieved by wiping. Compared with previous foil-touch systems, the new Procan ALPHA ® 2 PCT touch technology guarantees considerably longer-lasting functionality. A recalibration of the screen is no longer required and the touch-surface has been protected against damage with a stable single safety glass cover.
