Once again the world of Injection Moulding will decend on the Fakuma 2018 Expo in Europe from 16 – 20th October.

The World Leader in All Electric machine technology, will again showcase its market leading technology, combining efficency, accuracy and power.

Sumitomo will run their new high speed all electric model, The IntElect S.

It will run a medical engineering application to demonstrate the new all-electric machine series for high-speed parts, while an El-Exis SP 200 will run a high-speed IML application from the packaging segment.

The IntElect S in particualr builds upon Sumitomo Demags expertise in all electric and high speed applications. “No other machine builder worldwide can claim to have built over 65,000 all electric machines. Our knowledge we have built up, provides us with a level of expertise and experince no other machine builder in the world can offer”, say Dermid McKinley of Tasman Machinery. “Our in-house electric drive technology has advanced to a level that delivers not only fast cycle times and unparalleled process stability but also guarantees maximum energy efficiency” states McKinley.

At its Fakuma stand in Hall B1, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag will premiere an IntElect S 130/520-450 with a package of options specially developed for medical engineering requirements, ensuring a clean production environment (Good Manufacturing Practice). The 32-cavity pipette application focuses on quality assurance, traceability and supports customers with their product validation.

For this system, manufacturer Waldorf Technik of Engen/Germany has supplied its VarioTip solution, one of the most compact automation systems with 100% camera inspection for sorting pipettes according to cavities into the corresponding racks.

The system is equipped with a Max Petek laminar flow hood and connected to a master computer from bfa solutions, which ensures the perfect traceability of process data as well as monitoring changes to the set machine data. “The machine design with minimal surface areas and encapsulated mould space and our expertise in the all-electric segment are the recipe for our success as an innovative system supplier for medical engineering applications,“ says Pietro Scattarreggia, Director Business Development Electronics & Medical at Sumitomo (SHI) Demag.
