POLed for success - BOY trio in Kielce (Poland)
How singles become partners
The BOY 2C XS – an injection unit for two- or multi-component injection moulding – offers flexible possibilities by converting a conventional injection moulding machine into a 2C-machine. The injection unit with its own integrated hydraulic drive and Procan ALPHA ® 2 control provides a plasticizing volume of up to 76,4 cm³ and achieves injection pressures of up to 3,128 bar.
The BOY 2C XS can be connected to different injection moulding machines with a few simple steps. The unit is easy to transport and therefore more flexible to use due to steerable wheels. In addition, the positioning and use of several BOY 2C XS units to a basic machine is possible.
Injection moulding, bagging, done!
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). The protection caps will be sealed in aseptic packaging immediately following 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 BOY 35 E injection moulding machine will be completed through a higher ground clearance.
A new BOY 60 E (600 kN clamping force) will produce beer glasses out of highly transparent polycarbonate. The plastic glasses produced on the BOY 60 E will be removed from the mould with a handling device and placed on a conveyor belt. At the push of a button, the glasses can be filled with German beer.
The machine, which is newly available from BOY, is equipped with a higher clamping force, the multi-patented multi-touch Procan ALPHA ® 2 control and EconPlast. The newly developed, optional heating system named EconPlast reduces the energy required for plasticizing plastics by up to 50 %.
The whole unit – which includes the injection moulding machine, a three-axis linear robot with integrated rotary and swivel function, conveyor belts, and CE-compliant safety housing – can be ordered as a complete turnkey from BOY.
Certified saving models
Since the Polish plastics industry is also confronted with rising energy costs, the use of certified energy-saving machines is now encouraged and sponsored by the Polish government. The program PolSEFF deals in advantageous credits and supports small and medium-sized companies in the purchase of these certified machines. After implementation of Euromap 60.1, this measure is a further step to encourage and reward the purchase and use of only the most efficient machines in the market.
The BOY 60 E, equipped with the servo-motor pump drive and optioned with the EconPlast technology, achieves the energy classification 9+ according to Euromap.
Due to these governmental assistance measures, BOY and Wadim Plast expect that additional market opportunities will open up in Poland.. The manufacturer of injection moulding machines with clamping forces up to 1,000 kN feels it is best prepared for the implementation of the energy saving guidelines.
