CHICAGO — Mass production of container lids, in a 96-cavity, four-level stack mold, is on display at the KlÃ¶ckner Windsor Inc. exhibit (Booth S717).
KlÃ¶ckner, represented by KFD Sales and Service Inc., is molding the lids on a 550-ton KSP press. The injection unit has a plasticizing motor that can be switched between high torque/low speed and high speed/low torque. The clamping unit has a maximum distance between the platens of 91.73 inches. Opening stroke is 51.8 inches.
KlÃ¶ckner Desma is showing three new vertical presses. The fully hydraulic Model D968.250, with 275 tons of clamping force, gives faster closing speeds and flexibility in running various resins. The Trendsetter 2000 controller is Windows-based.
Another vertical-clamp press, Model D956, is designed for molding parts with a seamless corner such as window and door seals. The third vertical press, Model 968.100, is a 110-ton press for short runs and molding small parts or prototypes.
KlÃ¶ckner also is showing three new robots made by Remak Maschinenbau GmbH of Reinheim, Germany, the high-speed RF 5 HS, the RF 10 and the RC-30. The RF 10's telescoping arm can extend nearly to the floor. The RC-30 is unloading a resin chair molded on a 2,000-ton press.
KFD is headquartered in Erlanger, Ky.
