Kiefel GmbH has created the Speedformer KMD 78.2 Speed to showcase at K2019 in Düsseldorf (Hall 3, Booth E90), where visitors are invited to experience the machine live.
The new generation of Kiefel steel rule machines offers the usual quality with even greater productivity and energy efficiency.
Erwin Wabnig, Director Packaging Division at Kiefel, said: "The new generation of machines is fast and reliable. Operators, even without specific training, can operate them intuitively. Ergonomics and data transparency are a matter of course. And of course, in addition to common materials and products, our new system can also process novel film materials and produce even complex products whilst consuming a minimal amount of energy."
The Kiefel designers focused on higher productivity, process control and availability, as well as trend-setting intuitive user guidance with considerable added value in operation and maintenance.
The new KMD generation not only saves energy, but film. A newly developed film feed table guides the film to the film transport system. The proven station drives stabilise and work symmetrically, and the optimised forming air vacuum system enables customers to produce superior moulded parts.
The ergonomic tool change systems, one among many improvements, can significantly shorten set-up times too.
Intelligent User Guidance
‘Simple and intuitive’ is the motto of human interaction with the KMD 78.2 Speed. Pictograms and graphics, some animated, support the adjustment of machine parameters and aid fault diagnosis and rectification if necessary.
The new KMD generation only needs a few parameters to be input, the rest are automatically determined by onboard algorithms. The display shows the entire forming process and other important functions are just a click away.
Wabnig added: "In order to optimally adapt the new KMD generation for our customers, we have increased our requirements. On this basis, we have developed a state-of-the-art system in co-operation with universities, and internal and external experts, that simplifies our customers' daily manufacturing."
