They offer high stiffness, are heat and chemically resistant and flow freely into the machine: we are not talking about high-performance thermoplastic resins such as PEEK or PPS, but thermoset polymers. For processing these challenging materials, the large series specialist Baumgarten automotive technics employs the APC plus machine function from KraussMaffei. As a result, rejects have fallen significantly.
By providing a new injection molding machine from the all-electric PX series, KraussMaffei is supporting the Chair of Engineering Design and Plastics Machinery at the ipe of the University of Duisburg-Essen. The PX 120-380 features complete digital equipment including the DataXplorer. The shared goal is to develop new systems and applications and to use the acquired data as a basis for giving product and process quality a sustainable boost.
