Thermoforming machinery manufacturer Illig Maschinenbau GmbH Co. KG welcomed more than 250 attendees to an open house Oct. 29-30 at its headquarters in Heilbronn, Germany.
They heard presentations on automatic pressure forming machines in the company's RDKP series for separate forming and punching, and the RDK series that combines forming and punching. Illig ran eight demonstration machines.
Another demonstration was the new STAL 90 punch and die press, linked to an IC-RDKP thermoformer. The punch and die press, equipped with servo-drives, works at a speed of up to 145 cycles per minute. The press is used when parts must have a smooth rim when punched out from the web, then stacked automatically.
