The new function SmartTurn from KraussMaffei not only optimizes the turning speed but above all adjusts acceleration and deceleration based on the motor's characteristic curve. This does not only improve cycle times, but also protects the engine. In general, the lighter the tool, the more interesting this feature becomes and the greater the potential it offers.
One of the first customers to successfully test the new SmartTurn function in field tests is Nifco. For the specific application, more than one second of cycle time could be saved.
In an interview with the K-Profi, Andreas Handschke, Technology Manager and responsible for multi-component injection molding and foaming at KraussMaffei, explains the functionality and advantages of the new function.
