• Faster injection speed and boosted drive power cut cycle times
• PX configuration with maximum energy efficiency and innovative mold heat-balancing
• Uniformly high component quality and secure documentation of the material properties with APCplus
Purity and quality are the keywords for production of sensitive products in medical technology. However, efficiency and cost-efficiency are also increasingly critical. At K 2022 in Düsseldorf (Hall 15, Booth C15/C24-D24), KraussMaffei is demonstrating how both can work, using an all-electric PX 200-1400 in cleanroom design as an example. Caps for insulin pens are manufactured with maximum precision under cleanroom conditions, in short cycle times and with minimum use of resources such as energy and materials.
"Our medical technology customers are in a highly competitive market and face the challenge of increasing their productivity and minimizing costs per produced part," said Executive Vice-President New Machines Business at KraussMaffei Xiaojun Cui.
The all-electric PX series in a Medical design is ideal because it combines precision and performance with maximum efficiency and cost-efficiency. The modular concept with integrated hydraulic unit enables solutions customized to meet customer requirements.
Medical design in cleanrooms
The PX 200-1400 with a clamping force of 2,000 kN at the KraussMaffei trade show booth features a high-gloss machine paint finish. This ensures maximum purity and easy surface cleaning. The automatic central lubrication of the knee lever joints using certified oils and lubricants is in a closed circuit. This, in turn, minimizes maintenance expenses while keeping the production environment impeccably clean. At the same time, it enables cleanroom- and GMP-compliant production.
