Negri 16Eight production centres are moulding a range of plastic products at K 2013
Negri Bossi is exhibiting its latest innovations on an 800m2 stand entirely dedicated to injection moulding at K 2013.
The company is showcasing eight integrated production centres featuring machines with both two-platen and toggle-clamp injection technology, equipped with Smart Energy devices to minimise power consumption.
First of all there is the new Bi-Power VH 1000, the smallest of the two-platen hybrid range of large machines. The 650 tonne version of the evergreen Vector series with integrated robot is also being demonstrated, set up with a mould making polycarbonate headlight reflector dishes.
Another first at the show is the latest version of the Canbio series – a Canbio 210 equipped with a mould for automotive heat shield caps in PA66 +25 percent GF. This unit — like the previous one — also features an integrated Sytrama robot. Negri says all its machines in the 160-500 tonne range are being equipped with the new Smart Flex clamping units with optimised structural rigidity and V-rails to guide the mobile platen, thus creating an oil-free moulding zone.
In addition, the full electric version of the Vesta 300 is also in action. As well as the Smart Flex clamping unit, Negri says the machine also features a new actuator with ultra-rapid ball bearing screw to meet the specific needs of the packaging and medical industries requiring short cycle times.
Negri says the integrated PET test tube moulding centre, based on the Janus hybrid series and equipped with a 32-cavity Gefit mould and Piovan pellet treatment system, is demonstrating the company’s capacity to provide turnkey solutions.
The full range of equipment can be seen in hall 15b, on stand 22.
