SMART is a compact moulding production cell providing a clean, safe production environment.
The moulds are heated directly by electrical heating elements incorporated into the surface of the mould. This ensures the most efficient use of energy and materials.
Cooling is achieved by fans mounted on the rotating frame to optimize their efficiency. This arrangement ensures high productivity with shorter cycle times than conventional systems when using the same material and heat exchange area.
To reduce downtime as much as possible and increase productivity, a SMART option allows for interchangeable tooling frames.
This feature allows mould opening, part removal, insert positioning and powder loading to be achieved away from the machine, thus maximizing active moulding time.
The docking of the spider on the machine is quick and automatic thanks to a coupling plate connecting all electrical, pneumatic and auxiliary services. The spider is also automatically mechanically locked in place. SMART has an optional intelligent spider recognition system that identifies the spider and loads the correct moulding program.
SMART machine moulds a wide range of products, including Hydrogen Tanks, Truck and Tractor components, Tanks, Furnitures, Furnishing items, Lamps, Floor cleaning, Ducts, Trunk panels, Pillar.
SMART can be configured to operate in a semi-automated mode with manual intervention for part removal and reloading. This may be suitable for certain products and production environments. The SMART machine can also be integrated with robots and other automated equipment to operate in a fully automated mode with no human intervention. Your choice will be influenced by product design, additional moulded-in parts or graphics, or your particular production environment. SMART can operate as an independent machine or as an integrated part of a production cell.
The comprehensive control of the SMART machine allows numerous engineering polymers to be processed, including polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polycarbonate, all types of nylon, PLA, ABS, PVDF, polyester, PVA, EVOH and EVA.
SMART CNC tooling production yields unprecedented detail that can be enhanced with high gloss, matt, textured or laser etched surface finishes.
