At K 2019, Wittmann Battenfeld will exhibit its products and applications under the motto ‘Enjoy Innovation’.
Presenting from Hall 15 for the first time, Wittmann Battenfeld has acquired an additional 120 square metres of exhibition space in which to present its innovative injection molding technologies, processes and applications.
The main theme of Wittmann Battenfeld’s presentation at K 2019 is to showcase intelligent machines with adaptive algorithms, which adjust themselves to the ambient conditions.
This will be demonstrated with an all-electric EcoPower 55/350, a W918 robot, and the TEMI+ MES system.
The company will also display its latest development of the vertical machine in the PowerSeries design in the multi-component version. On a VPower 120/130H/210V, a plug made of PA and TPE for the automotive industry will be manufactured with a 2+2-cavity mould. In this application, a Scara robot and a WX142 linear robot are used to insert the wrap pins, transfer the preforms, then remove and deposit the finished parts.
A second application for the automotive industry will be presented on a machine from the SmartPower series in XL configuration. With a SmartPower 240 XL, a module for a car headliner with a functional surface will be produced with a single-cavity mold supplied by Georg Kaufmann, Switzerland.
Other new products at this year’s K include a high-speed EcoPower Xpress 160/1100+ in a medical version and a MicroPower 15/10 with 150kN clamping force. A micro retaining ring for medical miniature tubes will be produced from PC with an eight-cavity mould supplied by Wittner, Austria.
