Under the motto ‘be smart’, Wittmann Battenfeld (Hall 16/D22) will present, among others, two machines from its PowerSeries in the Combimould version.
Integration of Industry 4.0 will also be a major theme, with Wittmann 4.0 technology implemented and demonstrated in the networking of machines and peripheral equipment.
These include the MicroPower 15/10H/10H, the first two-component machine of the all-electric MicroPower series designed for injection moulding of small and micro parts.
This 15-tonne machine, equipped with two horizontal injection units and a rotary disk, can be used for either single-component or two-component injection moulding.
Wittmann Battenfeld will demonstrate the machine making a two-component plug for the sound carrier head of a vinyl record player made of PC and conductive PC with a single-cavity mould supplied by Denmark-based Ortofon. The conductive PC features an extremely low conductivity resistance, which ensures excellent signal transmission. The machine is equipped with an integrated camera system and a Wittmann W8VS4 Scara robot for fully automatic quality inspection and parts removal.
