Capacity expansion at Schwarz
KM 650 GX in operation
“A linear robot which is fully integrated into the machine offers a perfect interaction, thus new opportunities and applications”, states Zlatko Roginic who is production manager at Gebr. Schwarz.
The injection molding machine Krauss Maffei 650 GX comes with impressive technical parameters. One of the main features is a 24” user-friendly splitscreen monitor. Production processes as well as adjustment parameters are present at first sight. A newly designed hydro mechanic two-platen technology helps to increase lifetime of molds significantly. Higher machine uptime, less maintenance effort and longer mold endurance are saving costs and are leading into real competitive advantages.
A good decision of Gebr. Schwarz to take this invest! Also environmental aspects played a major role in this decision. Having a “Go Eco” function the machine can adjust itself to energetically most advantageous setup. The 650GX has a sophisticated mold tempering system including flow and temperature measurement. Those data are supporting analyzes and optimizations of injection molding processes. Molds with a weight of up to 12.000kg and a maximum injection volume of 1810cm³ can be used. Clamping forces up to 6500N can be realized.
Uwe Schwarz, managing director, proudly tells: “Having added the 650GX to our factory has been a milestone in our strategy to increase competitiveness of Gebr. Schwarz.”
