A compact turnkey system produces the cups reliably in an innovative foaming process. To do this, Bockatech's EcoCore technology is combined with a high-performance ARBURG machine equipped with a MuCell® package and control features for stable mould filling and bionically optimised pressure control. The PP base material is chemically enriched with CO2 as a blowing agent and physically enriched with nitrogen in the MuCell® process. After injection, the mould opens and the component foams up to a wall thickness of 2 mm. For gentle removal, the gripper of the MULTILIFT robotic system was additively manufactured with a freeformer. The gripping function with air guidance is based on a combination of hard and soft material, with no additional pneumatic drives or valves at all.
