Neustadt-Fernthal, January 27, 2014
Together with its Swiss distributor Plastiversum, BOY succeeded in having a perfect trade fair appearance at Swiss Plastics. With four machines, BOY, the medium-sized enterprise, was the exhibitor who presented the most injection moulding machines during the Swiss plastic exhibition.
The BOY 35 E with a cleanroom application impressed the professional visitors in course of the special show Plast-Print-Pack. The BOY 35 E (350 kN clamping force), which was equipped with a white antistatic coating, produced insulin syringe protection caps in a 16-cavity mould in accordance with cleanroom class 7 laminar flow (according to ISO 14 644). To guarantee sterility, the protection caps were sealed in aseptic packaging immediately after removal from the mould. Printed with production data for potential retracing, the transparent bags were sealed air tight. For this, the packaging machine was positioned space-saving under the cantilevered clamping unit. Thus, this harmonious cleanroom concept was accomplished by an increased clearance hight.
The E-Series servo-drive was impressive as well. “Quieter, more dynamic and with high energy saving potential, this drive technology provides a number of benefits for users,” explains Sascha Köppel, Managing Partner of Plastiversum AG about the advantages of the servo-motor pump drive. “The low heat generation of the servo-drive is a pleasant side effect, which makes more expensive and more complex cooling units unnecessary,” states Köppel. Another highly regarded plus was the new Procan ALPHA ® 2 control. The intuitive handling as well as the “smartphone wipe technique” of the multi-touch control were very well received by the attendees.
Booth became injection moulding shop
Innovative in minimum space – that was the slogan of the Plastiversum booth, where three machines were shown. Like the ambience of an injection moulding shop, a BOY XS LSR application, the new BOY 25 E and a flexible injection unit for multi-component injection moulding were demonstrated.
These attractive applications especially the new BOY 25 E were the basis for numerous contacts with interested Swiss Plastics visitors. According to statements from Sascha Köppel, these meetings have a very high potential and he is optimistic to positively implement these opportunities in the near future. Köppel already had success during the fair when the first machine was sold.
