50 years full of innovation in the plastics industry
The BOY 15 was the first injection moulding machine shipped from the company in 1968. The new model impressed experts due to an innovative fully hydraulic two platen locking system and unique compact design. In 50 years, nearly 50.000 injection moulding machines with a clamping force up to 1.250 kN, were shipped from the company in Neustadt-Fernthal. BOY supplies its precise, extremely reliable and economic injection moulding machines worldwide. With 60 Sales and Service Centers and its own company in the USA (BOY Machines, Inc.), BOY is represented on every continent.
Numerous features such as precise control, compact design and economic operation mark the current generation of BOY injection moulding machines. Equally as impressive is the servo motor pump drive with low energy consumption and the extremely economic operation. With the development of the EconPlast units, BOY sets new standards in plasticizing of plastics. More under www.econplast.de. The BOY created software Procan ALPHA Control enables a simple and intuitive operation of BOY injection moulding machines due to a touch-screen control and graphic user guide.
In addition to the many technical advantages of the current series, BOY also provides a flexible and fast After-Sales Service. Short reaction and delivery times, favourable pricing and distribution of spare parts to all regions of the world make BOY a preferred partner in the plastics industry. Furthermore, BOY has long established experiences in clean room techniques for producing medical and cosmetic products and micro-injection moulding of parts that weigh less than one milligram.
