Premiere at the K 2022: The new BOY XS E
At the K 2022 in Düsseldorf, the German machine manufacturer BOY will present its new injection moulding machine to the specialist audience for the first time. At its exhibition booth in Hall 13 / Booth A 43, BOY will present the enhancement of its successful compact machine with a clamping force of 100 kN. Thus the new BOY XS E is the successor of the globally successful BOY XS, which has been used for a continuous industrial operation in many industries since 2009.
The main difference between the BOY XS E and its predecessor model is the servo-motor pump drive. The efficient drive concept of the E-series from BOY thus covers its entire clamping force range from 100 kN to a maximum of 1,250 kN. "In addition to the energy benefits provided by the drive technology of the E-series, the servo drive of the new BOY XS E also scores with its high dynamics and an extremely smooth running," reports Martin Kaiser, Head of Technology at BOY. According to his statements, the modified BOY injection moulding machine offers a more ergonomic and service-friendly design as well as a significantly improved accessibility. Amongst others an extractable drawer has been integrated into the front side of the machine frame for service and cleaning purposes.
The BOY XS E is available with two different clamping platen configurations; in the standard-design for conventional mould sizes up to 160 mm (diagonally up to 205 mm clear space between the tie bars) as well as with a special 75 x 75 mm mould holder for micro moulds from many well-known standard manufacturers. The specialist for injection moulding machines with clamping forces of up to 1,250 kN will present both designs of the BOY XS E at its booth. Another advantage of the BOY XS E in terms of application technology is the 25 mm height-adjustable injection unit, which enables decentralised injection.
At the K 2022, the BOY XS E will be presented with a new screen visualisation. The ALPHA 6 appears in 16:9 screen format and is equipped with additional functions, such as an individually adjustable (Widget-) library as well as a modified presentation of the symbols on the user interface. With this new visualisation, users of previous BOY machine controls wont’t have any problems in getting around with it, as the basic concept has been rmaintained. For example, previous data sets from the previous Procan ALPHA 4 are compatible for the transfer into the new ALPHA 6.
The equipment of the BOY XS E is supplemented by a cooling water distribution system with digital flow measurement, which will be offered as standard for all BOY injection moulding machines in the future. The cooling water distribution system developed by BOY can be optionally expanded and can be equipped with a temperature recording. This data can also be recorded into the process data collection of the control system. Optionally a socket distribution (triple) can be integrated.
The space-saving integration of sprue and removal pickers under the protective housing is just as much a part of the variety of equipment as well as the rear removal handling with parts transport planned for K 2022. At the BOY booth one of the two BOY XS E will produce an egg cup made of NAS 30. The egg cups will be removed from the mould via removal handling and placed on a conveyor belt. The second BOY XS E with microform- plate design (mould holder 75 x 75 mm) will produce an mounting bolt made of PP.
After 13 years of BOY XS, the medium-sized machine manufacturer developed the successor model just at the right time. The BOY XS E meets the increased demands for high efficiency, energy-saving machines and a sustainable and resource-saving design.
