Wittmann Battenfeld's new EcoPower all-electric series, available with clamping forces ranging from 55 -300 tons, has been designed with particular attention to a compact footprint.
Wittmann Battenfeld’s new EcoPower all-electric series, available with clamping forces ranging from 55 -300 tons, has been designed with particular attention to a compact footprint.
As a result of a special integrated solution concept, temperature controllers and material dryers can be built directly into the machine frame, which substantially reduces space requirements as well as energy costs.
The injection unit is laid out for high injection speeds of up to 400 mm/s even under maximum injection pressure. The drive and the circulating ball spindle are at the heart of force transmission. The direct drive via the spindle minimizes force transmission loss and ensures accurate control and repeatability of the metering and injection process. The barrel can be exchanged quickly from above; it is also compatible with the traditional HM and TM series.
Set-up, visualization and storage of settings of the entire peripheral equipment can also be integrated directly into the machine’s control system Unilog B6.
