Machine and automation manufacturer Wittmann Battenfeld has released details covering which systems it plans to demonstrate at the upcoming K Show 2019.
The K fair will be held at Messe Dusseldorf, October 16-23.
Under the banner "Enjoy Innovation," the machine maker will showcase intelligent machines using adaptive algorithms which have the capability to adjust themselves according to the ambient conditions.
As part of this, an all-electric EcoPower 55/350 equipped with the HiQ-Flow, HiQMelt and HiQ-Metering software packages will be available for demonstrations.
This set up will produce polycarbonate clothes pegs using a four-cavity mold supplied by Austrian tooling specialist Lechner.
These systems, plus all auxiliary components, will be integrated into the machine’s Unilog B8 control system via Wittmann 4.0.
With this suite of hardware and software, the system will be able to check whether the connected auxiliaries are sufficient to support the selected product data set, or if additional equipment is needed.
Additionally, the cell can compensate automatically for material viscosity fluctuations, supporting stable output and helping to eliminate scrap.
Wittmann notes that bad parts will be deliberately produced in order to demonstrate the company’s Max 9 granulator, also present on the stand.
This and a series of other Wittmann Battenfeld demonstrations will be available at Hall 15, stand C06.
