New generation of Speedformer: the KMD 78.2 Speed from Kiefel (Freilassing, Germany)
The Speedformer KMD 78.2 Speed will be performing in booth Hall 3/E90 as the new generation of Kiefel steel-rule machines that offer greater thermoforming productivity and energy efficiency.
For example, the heating system is ready for use within a very short time and excels with a 20% higher heating capacity despite reduced energy consumption and in combination with the servo drives' energy recovery system leads to considerable energy savings.
It also saves on film too, using a newly developed film-feed table in addition to an optimized forming air vacuum system enables customers to produce superior molded parts.
