Energy use of entire cell to be highlighted

Article-Energy use of entire cell to be highlighted

In the weeks leading up to the Fakuma tradeshow, energy use, or the limited use of energy, is on the agenda at any number of leading machinery manufacturers who intend to exhibit. The show, to be held October 13-17 in Friedrichrichshafen, Germany, is one of the industry’s leading events, especially for injection molding.

One example: In a project it developed with Siemens, molding machine manufacturer Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH (Schwaig, Germany) will make its case for the low energy use of a molding cell based on one of its injection molding machines with the energy consumption of the machine as well as all of the periphery equipment measured, analyzed, and displayed for attendees of the event.

The tradeshow also will be the first showing of a new range of linear robots called SDR, developed and manufactured by robot manufacturer Sepro (La Roche-sur-Yon, France) for Sumitomo Demag for use on the latter’s machines. The SDR range comprises six robots that are optimized for Demag’s Systec and IntElect machines with between 35 and 2000 tonnes of clamp force. The SDR series robots are controlled by means of Visual 2, a control system already used in other robots made by Sepro, and the intention is to fully integrate it in Demag’s NC5 control system in the future.
