WITTMANN BATTENFELD with complete WITTMANN 4.0 production cell at the Interplastica trade show
From January 25 to 28, 2022, WITTMANN BATTENFELD will present its Industry 4.0 solution in the form of a production cell networked via WITTMANN 4.0 to interested trade visitors at Interplastica in Moscow in Hall 02, Booth 2.1/A23.
WITTMANN BATTENFELD will demonstrate its digitization expertise in Moscow with the production of a medical part. The machine to be used is an all-electric EcoPower 55/350, equipped with the software packages HiQ Flow® for compensating viscosity fluctuations, HiQ Melt for material quality monitoring and HiQ Metering for active closing of the check valve.
Equipment integrated in the machine’s UNILOG B8 control system via WITTMANN 4.0 will include a WITTMANN W918 robot, a gravimetric dosing unit GRAVIMAX G14, an ATON plus H70 segmented wheel dryer and three temperature controllers from the TEMPRO plus D series, as well as the TEMI+ MES system. The electronic mold data sheet will also be used by UNILOG B8. It enables the production cell, integrated via a WITTMANN 4.0 router, to check whether the connected auxiliaries are sufficient for the selected product data set, or whether additional equipment is needed.
The automation system is implemented via an Easy Cell developed and manufactured by WITTMANN BATTENFELD Deutschland in Nuremberg. The Easy Cell requires no safety gate and thus takes up only a minimal amount of space beside the injection molding machine. In spite of its compact design, customers receive the complete range of CE-compliant safety features.
Furthermore, WITTMANN auxiliaries will also be on display as stand-alone solutions at Interplastica in Moscow.
