At K 2013, Netstal-Maschinen AG will demonstrate clean room molding of medical infusion devices at a partner company, HRS Flow (Hall 1, Stand B8).
An all-electric Elion 1750 will mold the polycarbonate parts, with a cycle time of 65 seconds on a 16-cavity mold.
The press has very low energy consumption — about 70 percent less than conventional drive systems, according to Netstal. For example, braking energy gets fed back into the machine.
