BOY to Present New ALPHA® 6 Control System at K 2022

Dr BOY will be exhibiting at the forthcoming K-2022 in Düsseldorf on stand A43 in Hall 13. They will present the new ALPHA® 6 – the designated successor to the current Procan ALPHA® 4 control system.

It is immediately recognisable by its 16: 9 screen format. The TFT-colour display of the ALPHA® 6 has a Full-HD resolution with 1920 x 1080 pixels (px) and operates with the Multitouch PCT technology (projected capacitive). The display of the symbols has been changed to an exceptionally comfortable design for the eyes. Particular focus has been placed on soft colours and structured symbolism.

Due to the modified and slightly wider screen format, the ALPHA® 6 offers users an additional input (widget). This area can be individually configurated with prefabricated modules, as in a modular system. By clicking on an object from this library, set values can be freely defined and edited at any time, and the actual values determined by the control system can be displayed.

With the updated visualisation of the user surface and a slightly updated symbolism, users who are already familiar with the previous BOY-controls will be able to get easily and quickly along with ALPHA® 6”, comments Thomas Kühr, Head of Electrical Design at BOY.

The display of the ALPHA® 6 with its touch surface still offers clear and intuitive machine control advantages. In the course of the increasing networking of injection moulding machines, the ALPHA® 6 also provides the use of a wide variety of “add-ons” (digital expansion programmes), such as the BOY-WLAN-Stick, the BOY-Software Moulding Assist and the BOY-Status-App. In addition, the possibility of voice control will be demonstrated at the exhibition booth. The BOY-WLAN-Stick – plugged into the BOY machine control – connects the injection moulding machine to the Internet via an existing customer-WLAN or a hotspot. This enables secure, remote-controlled monitoring of process sequences and immediate assistance via remote maintenance with the BOY-repeater from Neustadt-Fernthal.

After its premiere at the K 2022, the ALPHA® 6 control system will gradually replace the current Procan ALPHA ® 4.
