Negri Bossi once again brings technology and innovation to K Show, one of the most important plastics exhibitions in the world, held every three years in Dusseldorf.
On a 480 m2 stand (Hall 15 Stand B22) Negri Bossi will be displaying four machines the focal point being the all-new NOVAs600T a machine which completes this series of machines. In addition to this, NB will also be showing two electric machines from its NOVA eT range as well as a 330 tonnes servo-hydraulic machine.
The NOVA s600T comes from the NOVA sT range that is available from 600 to 1300 tonnes. The new and innovative range has a unique toggle system that gives all benefits of a traditional toggle system while generating a footprint close to that of a two-platen machine. The machines come with the latest generation servo-hydraulic system for maximum performance and energy-saving combined with the patented and technology leading Motus controller with its revolutionary virtual object system for axis movement. This machine will be making a folding crate with part extraction via a SYTRAMA robot going to an assembly station.
Two NOVA eT all-electric machines completed the collection of NOVA machines on display. The NOVA eT range is aimed at the Packaging, Closure, Medical, and Optical moulding sectors and is precise, efficient, and fast. The NOVA eT range is from 50 to 350 tonnes. The machines feature the smart flex two clamp units specially designed for electric actuation and for reduced dry cycle times. The whole range features generous tie bar spacing, high injection speeds, and Tactum multi‐touch controller with scroll, zoom and swipe capability.
The first NOVA e130T on the stand fitted with a 40 mm barrier screw will run a mould, made by MOLMASA (Barcelona, Spain), to produce Roll-On. This moulding solution for the packaging industry is a new patented method for producing high-quality plastic blown bottles directly from the injection moulding machine. The benefits of this application are a compact mould concept operation simple and reliable, horizontal injection moulding machine used, simple and fast start‐up, high quality of the final product and a low cost of the moulded pieces production.
The second NOVA eT is a 220‐tonne model that produces glass thanks to a four‐impression mould made by FB Moulds, and it is completed by a bagging machine. Parts are extracted via a side entry SYTRAMA Robot and placed into the bagging line. This is an ideal application in which traditional machines struggle in terms of energy consumption and performance.
The fourth machine will be a 330-ton machine that produces a broom brush incorporating our FMC technology. FMC is a technique of moulding with gas (nitrogen in microcellular form) which reduces the weight of the product and eliminates aesthetic defects. The use of WPC (wood plastic compound) raw material in addition to the FMC system guarantees an ecological solution for plastic production. Using Negri Bossi’s experience in gas injection, FMC system is the best solution to reduce weight because this application produces moulded material in a microcellular form, available both for thermoplastics and liquid silicon rubber (LSR). The machine is also equipped with a brush making machine (Borghi).
All machines have Sytrama automation, our sister company and on the stand will be a little demonstration with a Sytrama robot playing noughts and crosses.
The NB AMICO 4.0 system dedicated to industry 4.0 will be shown on a display area where customers could see the latest developments achieved through the collaboration with our partner Open Plast. Open Plast, the Italian platform dedicated to plastic and rubber sector, allows the complete industry 4.0 chain from machines to customers ERP system.
