Promotion of young talents by BOY at the IdeenExpo 

BOY will be at the nationwide largest youth event for natural science and technology (June 15-23, 2019 in Hanover) and present one of its injection moulding machines. A BOY XS manufactures a bracelet made of liquid Silicone at the IdeenExpo at the booth of the Gelnhausen vocational school. Since this moulded part is subsequently provided with an individual laser inscription, a LSR modified for laser printing has to be used.


In addition to the standard processing of Thermoplastics by means of special plasticizing units the compact BOY XS with a clamping force of 100 kN offers the possibility to process Elastomers (rubber, solid and liquid silicones) as well as Thermosetting plastics. Likewise, highly wear-resistant plasticizing units are available.


The growing shortage of skilled workers is also a topic in the plastics industry. It is important to inspire the young generation for this industry. The IdeenExpo offers young professionals the ideal platform for a career orientation. For this reason, BOY was particularly interested in bringing the techniques and possibilities of the plastics world closer to the young visitors by means of a producing machine.

In particular, the training occupations of industrial mechanics and mechatronics engineers as well as process mechanics for plastics and natural rubber offer highly interesting and promising prospects - also with BOY.
