BOY will demonstrate two applications for rubber processors at the IRC; something it says is a “must-attend” event for the company.
A BOY 25 E VV (250 kN clamping force) with fully integrated automation will overmould a silicone lip on a prefabricated ice scraper. The ice scraper blanks will be removed from a magazine with a removal-handling device that is integrated on the machine table.
On its other display, the company will showcase a BOY 35 E (350 kN clamping force) optioned to process elastomer with a double brush device and heated magnetic platens. It will produce toroidal rings (O-rings) made of FKM in a 28-cavity mould with a rigidity of 70 Shore.
Designed for the production of precise, technical parts, BOY says the 35 E is “one of the most interesting four tie bar injection moulding machines on the market for silicone and rubber processors”. This, it says, is down to its large tie bar and platen distances, a 1.94m² footprint, an efficient servo drive and the optional EconPlast technology. The machine’s newly developed plasticising system saves a “considerable amount of energy” during the material melting process, says BOY, with the material melting said to be significantly enhanced via a directly controllable temperature control.
“Our two exhibits are particularly specific to the professional visitors of DKT/IRC. We are very well prepared for the discussions all around the topic of silicon and rubber processing,” explained Andreas Scheideler, BOY Sales Manager, Germany.
“These applications have a long BOY tradition. With our partner companies including EMDE Industrie-Technik GmbH and the Italian BOY distributor ST.A.TE Technologies srl., we have a high degree of competence in this field.”
