Five BOYs at FIP 2014
Integrated peripheral devices
The BOY XS, the smallest BOY injection moulding machine with 100 kN clamping force, will produce a Fresnel stepped lens out of two component liquid silicone. A small mixing pump, which will be positioned on the BOY XS, as well as an integrated four-axis robot will be impressive due to its compactness. The lenses will be removed from the mould by a picker, which will be positioned under the safety gate, and placed on a compact conveyor belt that will be integrated on the rear side.
The BOY 35 E (350 kN clamping force), which is equipped with an antistatic coating, will produce insulin syringe protection caps in a 16-cavity mould in accordance with cleanroom class 7 laminar flow (according to ISO 14 644). For reasons of sterility, the protection caps will be sealed in aseptic packaging immediately following the removal from the mould. Printed with production data for potential retracing, the transparent bags will be sealed air tight. To save space, the packaging machine will be positioned under the cantilevered clamping unit. The harmonious cleanroom concept of the four-tie bar injection moulding machine of the E-Series will be completed through a higher ground clearance.
Flexible multi-component injection moulding
Another highlight will be the addition of an injection unit for a 2nd component. In combination with the new BOY 100 E (1,000 kN clamping force), two-component plastic parts will be produced for the medical industry. The extremely flexible injection unit is based on a BOY XS and is equipped with its own hydraulic drive and Procan ALPHA ® control. The injection unit provides a plasticizing volume up to 8,0 cm³ and achieves injection pressures up to 3.128 bar. Larger injection units are optionally available on request. The complete control and hydraulic unit will be positioned next to the basic machine. The unit is transportable due to steerable wheels and therefore can also be connected with other injection moulding machines.
Insert moulding machine for elastomer application
The production of technical elastomer parts on a BOY 25 E VV (clamping force 250 kN) will complete the BOY presentation at the leading French trade fair for plastics technology. The BOY insert moulding machines have been used successfully worldwide for many years for the production of ambitious elastomer products.
Easiest operation, highest precision
A special experience for the visitors of the FIP will also be the high-end BOY Procan ALPHA ® 2 control. A self-explaining user interface and its ease of use satisfy the highest demands both in speed and precision. Introduced in 2012 and multi-patented, this innovative control has proven itself in practical applications and has become part of the standard equipment of BOY injection moulding machines.
