“We are happy to see that the presentation of the KraussMaffei GX series was well accepted by our customers and visitors at the Feiplastic trade show in São Paulo. The increasing demand confirms our strong position in the South American automotive sector”, says Klaus Jell, General Manager of the Brazilian subsidiary of the KraussMaffei Group.
At the Feiplastic show a GX 500-3000 manufactured a housing for the air conditioning, a classic automotive component. Automatic production took place in a fully integrated production cell with an LRX 250 linear robot that fitted with the handheld pendant of the new MC6 control system. The entire production cell demonstrated maximum productivity and innovative detailed solutions for flexibility and production intelligence. "The precise injection and plasticizing unit makes the GX series predestined for the process-stable production of sophisticated parts", explains Jell. The high shot weight constancy of less than +/- 0.1 percent ensures reliable production, even with the highest possible demands. Productivity is therefore maintained. As the fastest dual platen machine on the market, the GX offers the shortest travel times and maximum productivity. Generous mold installation dimensions significantly increase flexibility with regard to the molds that can be used. The smooth-running mechanics reduce traction resistance by up to 80 percent and ensure, together with the hydraulic concept designed for minimum flow losses, maximum energy efficiency.
