Wintec premieres all-electric e-win series at CHINAPLAS 2016
Wintec, the branch of Austria’s Engel Group, will premiere the all electric e-win series at CHINAPLAS 2016.
“The e-win injection molding machines guarantee our clients a very fast return on investment,” stated Peter Auinger, President of Wintec. “In this way, we enable processing businesses to get involved in all-electric injection molding technology at no risk and keep pace with the trend towards ever higher production quality.”
All movements of the machine are servo-electric, which guarantees high precision and enables a stable process. As introduced, it also supports shorter cycle times through the synchronous movements of the drive axles and an acceleration of up to 22m/s² of the injection axis.
At the show, an e-win 1000-170 with clamping force of 1,000kN will be used to produce lamp shields. The shot weight will be 14g per component, with the mold provided by a Wintec customer that produces large quantities of the lamp shields.
The lamp shields need to be aluminum-plating before headlamp assembly. “Aluminum-plating would also reveal the tiniest irregularities and lead to rejection,” explained Auinger. “For this application, an all-electric injection molding machine that guarantees high precision and process stability is first choice. An automated process is also important when it comes to raising quality.”
Wintec’s C2 control unit offers ample flexibility in terms of connecting robots of various types and brands. The entire machine status is displayed on a clear-cut single screen. A quick adjustment page groups the most important setting parameters in a compact way.
To ensure an ergonomic workflow, the 15″ touchscreen can be swiveled out forward and is height adjustable. In terms of processing power, the C2 control unit outperforms control units of other machine producers in this area by 33%.
Wintec is initially offering the new all-electric e-win injection molding machines in two machine sizes, with clamping force of 1,000-1,800kN.
