Less than six months from the delivery of their first NOVA eT All-Electric machine, County Durham based IVM Ltd have taken delivery of a 280-tonne model.
The machine will add additional capacity to the site and was required on relatively short delivery. Due to increasing production levels of their all-electric products, Negri Bossi were able to deliver and commission the machine within just three weeks of order.
The order reinforces a major policy change at IVM, having traditionally purchased hydraulic machines. The company’s MD Ian Davidson credits a number of factors as leading to this decision.
“Our initial decision to trial the NOVA eT product centred around our traditional core business of tooling validation. We needed as accurate and stable a processing platform as possible, this to remove any external influences on the tooling. This is critical when generating detailed setting sheets, tool improvement schedules, fill studies, as well as bench mark samples.
“We do however also have a reputation for taking on demanding injection moulding projects, one such example being a six impression Polycarbonate lens tool. By transferring this tool to the first All-Electric machine we purchased, we achieved a phenomenal 0.01mm variation in mould cushion while simultaneously reducing the cycle time by close to 25%.”
To encourage companies to experience the benefits offered by their latest generation of all-electric technologies, Negri Bossi are currently contributing 10% towards the machine purchase price – making an already competitive machine extremely attractive. This offer is available for machines delivered within 2018.
The Negri Bossi NOVA eT All-Electric machine range offers eight models from 50 to 350 tonnes lock. A 130-tonne machine is currently available to view at Negri Bossi UK’s Rugby showroom.
