KraussMaffei has revealed that it is expanding the range of machines in its GX series and will present a new model with 900 tonnes of clamping force at K 2013 in Düsseldorf (October 16-23, Hall 15, B27 / C24 / C27 / D24).
With a reported cycle time of seven seconds, KraussMaffei cites the GX series as the fastest 2-platen machine on the market and says it is ideally suited to large mouldings for packaging.
"Minimal cycle times with ideal efficiency. The GX series impresses our customers with its quick movements and minimal energy consumption," confirms Frank Peters, Vice President of Sales at KraussMaffei. "The high demand from the market is further confirmation of this."
At K 2013, KraussMaffei says a GX 900-8100 will demonstrate its capabilities for quick cycle times, as required for products from the logistics and packaging industry. The parts will be demoulded using a linear robot and transferred to a second robot by a ‘handshake’.
