The eCanbio machine series
At this year’s Interplas, Negri Bossi will have the first UK public showing of the latest variant of its ‘Canbio’ series machines, which is prefixed with the letter ‘e’ for evolution, so as to reflect the extent to which they have been developed, says the company.
New additions to the machine include the new ‘Smart Flex’ clamping groups, which are said to be more generous with regard to distance between top tie bars; the new eV300 tonne offering for example, having 720 mm between bars, compared to 660mm on the outgoing V330 model.
The other major changes relate to their now being no contact between tie bars and the moving platen, and the moving platen being supported on prismatic guides rather than slide-ways. “These modifications yield multiple benefits, with structural rigidity being optimised and a lubrication free `moulding zone’ being produced,” explained Carl Futcher, Managing Director of Negri Bossi UK. “Cycle times can also be improved, for example the mould closing time being over 20 percent faster at maximum speed.”
The Canbio machines are fully digital and can also be offered in a Smart Energy version, which, according to the company, further enhances both efficiency and accuracy and reduces noise levels, achieving close to, or in some instances, surpassing all-electric technology.
