Sumitomo (SHI) Demag at Emballage 2014: expertise in injection molding for packaging

Emballage 2014 – Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery (France) SAS Revealing Flexibility and Functionality in Demanding Packaging Application

Efficient and economical solutions for packaging injection molding are the main applications, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery (France) SAS presents at this year’s Emballage in Paris. At the stand 6 M 091, the French subsidiary of the German-Japanese machine manufacturer Sumitomo (SHI) Demag shows the professional audience the all-electric IntElect machine with an IML peel-off application.

To this effect, Rouxel SA, Saint Arnoult en Yvelines / France, has produced a four-cavity hot runner mold for manufacturing lids for food containers. The plastic lids are decorated in modern IML technology with a product and aroma-protecting peel-off function. The approximately 6-g lightweight components made of polypropylene (PP) are produced in a cycle time of approx. 4.5 s.

Heart of the production unit is an IntElect 160-680 (1600 kN), which produces the decorated lid. Other partners in this project are the French companies Sepro Robotique, La Roche-sur-Yon, along with Machines Pagès, Foncine-le-Haut, for the handling device and the IML technology.

Safety, process consistency and precision in demanding tasks with tight tolerances are characteristic features of the all-electric IntElect range. In the IntElect of Sumitomo (SHI) Demag, the electric direct drives are used that were developed, optimized for the injection molding process and also produced by Sumitomo (SHI) Demag. Compared with belt-driven electrical drives, these direct drives offer more energy efficiency and a faster responsiveness for higher accuracy, higher repeatability and, in addition to this, a cycle time benefit. Thus, electrical machinery by Sumitomo (SHI) Demag meets the particular requirements for injection molding of precision products in high volume production. The IntElect is available with eight clamping forces ranging from 500 to 4500 kN.
