Dr Boy GmbH & Co KG announced recently that it is supplying two more injection molding machine, Boy 35 E to worldwide model railroad manufacturer Märklin.
“It is remarkable that we could manage a re-organization without any new capital from investors,” said Stefan Löbich, Managing Partner at Märklin. “Boy has always supported our production with modern machine technology. In 2010, Boy delivered two injection molding machines with clamping forces of 350kN and two Boy 22 A machines (clamping force 220kN). Boy has been a reliable and competent partner, especially in the difficult months during our comeback. In December 2011, we gave Boy a follow-up order for two more Boy 35 E machines.”
According to Boy’s statement, the energy efficient characteristics of the E-series convinced Märklin to further invest into its machines. “The Boy 35 E with the servo drive fits like a glove into our production,” said Wolfrad Bächle, also Managing Partner and responsible for the production at Märklin.
He continued, “Since we have an enormous number of plastic parts for our railways, railway cars and rail material, we also have a large number of molds. All of them fit without problems in the Boy 35 E, as the four tie-bar machine has extremely generous distances between the tie bars and platens. The Boy 35 E is the most compact in its tonnage range and requires a footprint of only 2m2. The precise quality of the produced parts and overall dynamics of the machine has given us an outstanding impression of the Boy 35 E. The machines run in a three-shift operation under full steam. In addition to some of its other features, the extremely low energy requirement of the machine has helped decrease our production costs.”
