KraussMaffei (Munich) invites K 2019 attendees to visit stand C 24-27 in hall 15 for the launch of its GX 1100 injection molding machine. With the new clamping force size of 11,000 kN, “we see great opportunities in the areas of packaging and logistics," said Hans-Ulrich Golz, President of the Injection Molding Machinery segment. Like all GX series machines, the GX 1100 features a space-saving two-platen design, GearX and GuideX clamping elements, a modular configuration and numerous equipment options.
At the stand, the GX 1100-12000 will produce 20-liter polypropylene buckets in two cavities decorated by in-mold-labeling. The shot weight is about 1500 grams with a cycle time of just 14 seconds, according to KraussMaffei. The available speed option increases injection speeds up to 700 mm/sec, depending on the injection unit, as well as clamping movements. “We thus offer our customers an additional option to improve the opening and closing movements of the GX machine, especially for large packaging opening widths of more than 350 mm,” said Golz.
