Parts, service and calibration Value-priced molding machines Control retrofits for all molding machines Your one-stop solution from the leader in machinery, parts, services and technology for the plastics molding industry 513-619-7415 Fully Automated Mold-Change Is Here Staubli Corp. | Booth W4003 The highlight of Stäubli's booth is a fully automated demonstraঞon cell for SMED (Single-Minute Exchange of Die). Networked Industry 4.0-compaঞble components coordinate a number of individual pro- cesses for operaঞng the roboঞcs, sensors, magneঞc clamping, rapid connecঞon devices, robot tool changers, trolleys, and electrical con- necঞons. The system detects the condiঞon of the mold, the molding force of the magneঞc clamping, and numerous other factors; so that any fault, such as failure to reach correct operaঞng temperature, is recognized early. | (864) 433-1980 Engel Brings Economical Chinese-Built Machines to the Americas Engel | Booth W3303 Engel Machinery (Changzhou) Co., Ltd. has been building a line of Wintec hydraulic and electric machines in China since 2014. At NPE2018, Engel (U.S. office in York, Pa.) is introducing these machines to the U.S., Can- ada, Mexico, and Brazil. These are aracঞve- ly priced, general-purpose machines for stan- dard applicaঞons—mainly high-volume, sin- gle-component molding. Machines are deliv- ered preconfigured, which Engel says guar- antees short delivery ঞmes and fast startup. Designed and developed in Europe, Win- tec machines are built in China to the same strict quality standards as at all Engel plants worldwide, emphasizes Peter Auinger, Win- tec president Americas, who is responsible for sales and service in this hemisphere. Wintec has already set up a team of experi- enced service technicians in the Americas and established a spare-parts warehouse. Wintec t-win series of servo-hydraulic two-platen presses from 500 to 1,900 U.S. tons are currently used mainly in the automo- ঞve and white-goods sectors. Their clamps ride on linear guides, and they have a KEBA C2 controller with ঞlঞng 15-in. touchscreen. Wintec e-series all-electric toggles from 55 to 310 tons also have linear platen guides and KEBA C2 control. It also boasts a swiveling injecঞon unit, automaঞc mold-height adjust- ment, automaঞc clamp-force correcঞon for mold heat-up, and clamp-force measurement at the center of the platen, rather than on one ঞebar as on some compeঞng machines. | (717) 764-6818 "The plascs industry may already be mature, but it is sll very dynamic and always provides numerous development opportunies, for example in lightweight appli- caons and in electric mobility, in wind power or in medical technology. The topic of digitali- zaon and networking (Industry 4.0) also offers huge potenal." — KARLHEINZ BOURDON, KraussMaffei, Plasঞcs Hall of Fame Class of 2018 66
