Negri Bossi’s new ELE series made its debut in October at K2016, the largest European event of the plastics industry.
Presently available in models from 50 to 350 tonnes, this range will be extended over the following months to a line of nine models up to 650 tonnes with configurable injection units. Multi-colour options are also available with additional injection units full electric.
“The product is targeted at markets which require the performance that an all-electric gives and as such the specifications reflect this. The product features a new multi-touch controller Tactum with features such as swipe and scroll. The machine is equipped with a new” smart flex 2″ locking unit with a different toggle geometry designed to be coupled specifically with electric closing and to have characteristics optimised to its target market.” announced Mr Craig Ward, CEO Negri Bossi SpA.
Key target markets include medical and packaging and the 180 tonne machine on demonstration at the K Show, was running a four impression IML lid in under 3 seconds. It incorporated a side entry robot and labelling system by our sister company, Sytrama.
In keeping with Negri Bossi’s tradition, the machines have been designed for reliability, longevity and performance. Linear runners with self-lubricating bearings on the moving platen ensure cleanliness of the die area, making them perfect for cleanroom environments.
