(Munich, April 6, 2013) KraussMaffei offers the right products for the market in Thailand. The company satisfied customers' requirements very precisely with the all-electric AX series for cost-efficient and energy-conserving closure production. This was confirmed by impressed visitors to the Tiprex exhibition, which was held in Bangkok, Thailand, from April 3 to 6, 2013.

Efficiency and precision for sealing caps

In particular, the manufacture of mass-produced articles such as sealing caps for the drinks industry calls for resource-efficient production along with high repeatability. The injection molding machines in the AX series are perfectly tailored to these requirements. During Tiprex an AX 130-750 produced screw caps with maximum energy efficiency in a 24-cavity mold from the company CCT. "Thanks to the proven KraussMaffei injection and plasticizing unit and the precision electric drive units, the AX series is almost predestined for process-reliable production of high unit numbers", said Frank Peters, Vice President Sales at KraussMaffei. The optimized 5-point toggle lever, efficient servo motors and smooth-running mechanics ensure maximum efficiency of the machine with which it is possible to reduce energy consumption by up to 50 percent. Groundbreaking control technology and absolute positioning accuracy ensure precise shaping with high dynamics.

Energy recycling inside the machine

Just like every all-electric injection molding machine from KraussMaffei, the electricity generated through braking energy in the AX is also fed back as a standard feature into the intermediate circuit and is available for other axes or is returned to the power grid. The AX series therefore offers optimum prerequisites for efficient and precise manufacturing. It lets the processor produce flexibly, reliably and, above all, at low unit costs.
