KraussMaffei at Fakuma 2021:
System solutions for medical technology
At the Fakuma 2021, KraussMaffei is highlighting economical system solutions for medical technology, logistics packaging, technical appliances and lightweight construction, and is deliberately focusing on an all-digital presentation. Efficiency and sustainability are the focal points of the system solutions for injection moulding technology, reaction process technology, automation and matching digital solutions.
In the Medical Technology business area, KraussMaffei demonstrates – using the example of a micromembrane like the ones currently used for vaccination doses – how to implement the processing of liquid silicone (LSR, Liquid Silicone Rubber) successfully, safely and cost-effectively, even in micro-injection moulding. The application on the PX 25 SilcoSet is cleanroom-compliant according to class ISO-7 in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14644-1 and allows for high shot weight consistency, thus maximising the yield of good parts thanks to APC plus. The high degree of automation and the data transparency throughout the process ensure cost-effective and safe production.
In the business of Technical Appliances, KraussMaffei demonstrates – using the example of an intricate connector with four metal inlays – how an advanced, completely tested and ready-to-install component can be realised at low part cost. The all-electric injection moulding machine PX 161 with matching automation offers maximum precision while taking up minimal space as a result of the space-saving integration of the automation, high efficiency in the placement and overmoulding of the metal parts as well as an extensive inspection routine.
