The new ELIOS 7500 features the fastest dry cycle in its size class and is optimized for the efficient production of thin-walled packaging and lightweight components.
A major Austrian automotive parts supplier has demonstrated its confidence in the capabilities of Netstal’s latest injection moulding machine by placing one of the first pre-orders ahead of its official launch.
Pollmann International GmbH, a manufacturer of complex and intelligent mechatronics assemblies used in vehicles, has ordered an ELIOS 6500 for the production of thin-walled, lightweight plastic parts.
The machine series, which is to be officially launched by Netstal at K 2016 next month, also includes the larger 7500 machine, which features the fastest dry cycle in its size class.
"The specified technical performance features of the new machine fully convinced us beforehand. That is why, on the basis of trust and experience, we placed an order to be able to produce on a new ELIOS as quickly as possible," explained Manfred Jäger, a buyer of capital goods for Pollmann.
Live at K 2016: Production of 43,000 domed lids per hour
During K 2016 in Düsseldorf, the large version of the new ELIOS with a clamping force of 7,500 kN will officially be launched.
With the ELIOS 7500, Netstal says it has succeeded in transferring the high speed and precision to a 750-tonne clamping unit with electrical movement. As a result, according to Euromap, the new machine currently offers the fastest dry cycle in its size class.
During the eight days of the trade fair, more than 43,000 domed lids with a part weight of 2.8 grams will be produced per hour in a 24+24 stack mould. This corresponds to a cycle time of just four seconds.
