Efficient multi-component injection moulding
The highlight at the trade fair stand is a two-component ALLROUNDER MORE 1600 injection moulding machine with two electric injection units. Handling is performed by a six-axis robot from Yaskawa. The exhibit produces four ready-to-use Luer connectors at a time within a cycle time of around ten seconds. The part weight of the PP component is 0.2 grams, the soft TPE component even weighs only 0.05 grams. The closures are capped and the threads are unscrewed directly in the mould. The innovative high-end solution eliminates the need for a second mould and additional assembly line. This significantly reduces the manufacturing costs.
