Negri Bossi exhibits All Electric LSR machine at Plastpol 2017

The 21st International Fair of Plastics and Rubber Processing PLASTPOL, is being held at the Targi Kielce Exhibition & Conference Centre from the 23rd – 26th of May. It is now one of the most significant events for Europe’s plastics processing and rubber manufacturing sector.

Negri Bossi, through their agent NTQ, will be showing two very exciting machine applications on booth E64 occupying a 250m² floor area.

An all-electric 180 ton machine from the new ele series will be running a unique foam microcellular molding process, producing a complete ping pong bat.

The 180-630 machine is injecting the body in a PBT material from the main 45mm plasticising unit, while a vertical electric injection unit will be feeding a soft TPE handle. One of the bat faces will be moulded in a foamed LSR (Liquid Silicone Rubber) to produce the ‘spongier’ side of the bat. The firmer face will be in a standard LSR material. The LSR materials are injected directly into the mold from a dosing unit system equipped with a special process for producing the foam microcellular moulding material. The moldings will be handled by a 6 axis Robot supplied by Negri Bossi Group company, Sytrama. The mold is manufactured by Esistampi s.r.l.

The second Negri Bossi machine is a 250 ton Canbio st servo hydraulic model, molding a four-cavity 300cc polystyrene drinking glass. The machine is equipped with two 3-Axis Sytrama robots. The mold is manufactured by New Tresing Stampi s.r.l. A model S9 will remove the moldings from the machine. A second S10 model will take the glasses from the S9 and fill them with juice to demonstrate the accuracy and stability of the robots.
