KraussMaffei to exhibit all-electric, energy saving AX series at NPE 2009

KraussMaffei, Germany-based leading injection moulding machine maker, is all set to exhibit its all-electric AX series which it says will reduce manufacturing costs in standard applications at NPE 2009 (Chicago, USA). According to the company, the AX series shows 60% greater energy efficiency and a 25% smaller footprint for a fully automated, completely enclosed production cell. The all-electric lower-priced IMM from 50 to 350 tons combines proven toggle mechanics with extreme operator friendliness. In addition, the company claims that its competitive pricing policy coupled with short set-up times largely trim total cost of ownership. The super-slim machine can be supplied as a complete production cell, with an integrated KraussMaffei linear robot and safety housing that shrinks space requirements by around 25%. The operator-friendly KraussMaffei MC5 Touch control system coordinates all machine functions and the integrated robot via a real-time Varan bus. The AX features a centrally-lubricated, low-maintenance, five-point toggle for the clamp and a moving platen on precision roller bearing guides with friction up to 80% lower than a sliding-support design. The high-precision platen guides guarantee very high platen parallelism, helping to prolong mould service life. The water-cooled converters are regenerative-capable, harvesting braking energy and controlling the servomotors with high efficiency. A number of energy-saving engineering measures have made the AX series over 50% - and in many cases up to 60% - more energy efficient than a comparable modern hydraulic machine.
