Negri Bossi at Equiplast 2021

NOVA eT all-electric moulding machine

Negri Bossi is taking part in Equiplast 2021, which is being held in Barcelona – at the Fira Barcelona centre – from 14 to 17 September. The event marks the resumption of the European trade fair season and Negri Bossi will be taking the opportunity to welcome visitors and update them on the latest technological innovations.

Negri Bossi will occupy its historic location with a 155 sq.m. stand, located in HALL 3, level 0 stand number D31, hosting a NOVA eT180-490 all-electric machine.

The injection moulding machine, suitable mainly for the medical, packaging and technical moulding markets, prints an injected and blown container using a single-cavity mould produced by the MOLMASA company (Molmasa Industrial de Moldes s.l.) based in Spain, in Montcada I Reicax, near Barcelona.

This moulding solution, called in.blow, is a new patented method of producing high quality plastic bottles directly from the injection moulding machine.

The machine on display is part of our all-electric range, in which Negri Bossi has a great deal of technological experience acquired over the years and represents one of the company’s flagship models. The series is available starting from 50 tonnes, and has recently developed up to 450 tonnes, with the intention of further expanding the range in line with market requirements that are increasingly attentive to the advantages of the all-electric machines.

The user-friendly, easy-to-navigate TACTUM multitouch control system completes the machine and, together with the patented AMICO.4.0 remote assistance system. Created in 1998 by NB, the remote assistance system has thousands of users and guarantees after-sales support via a WAN connection, making it possible to manage production in the best possible way and to interconnect machine data with the various IT systems, increasingly in line with Industry 4.0.

The NOVA eT is also equipped with the S7-L robot from Sytrama, a group company based in Vignate (MI). To complete the automation equipment, there is the IML application with the supply of labels from LA PRENSA Etichette Italia, based in San Giuliano Milanese (MI).

For Negri Bossi, this edition of Equiplast is also a time for farewells: Antonio Rampone, head of the subsidiary until June 2021, will take advantage of his presence at the fair to say goodbye to our Spanish customers and collaborators as he looks towards the end of his highly satisfying career.

All the staff at Negri Bossi Spain are ready to welcome anyone who wants to get a hands-on feel for the Italian brand’s new technology, whose latest creations cover new market segments.
