Press Release 24/2014

Neustadt-Fernthal, 20. October 2014

BOY enjoyed sucsess at Fakuma

With innovative applications, BOY, the manufacturer of injection moulding machines, attracted more visitors than ever to its booth at Fakuma (October 14 – 18, 2014). Many contacts and conversations in the BOY booth directly after the Fakuma opening recalled the extremely successful K fair in the previous year.

“With the transition to our flexible injection moulding machines, which have been adjusted perfectly to more and more individual applications, we reached a great number of users at Fakuma“, says Alfred Schiffer, BOY Managing Partner, emphasizing his extremely positive conclusions about this year’s Fakuma. He adds that BOY received great reception in Friedrichshafen for the handling devices that were shown. Likewise, according to Alfred Schiffer, the differential injection technology for the production of thin-walled plastic parts with long flow paths was the focus for many visitors.

Through the introduction of the new Euromap 90 efficiency label, the energy efficiency and comparability of injection moulding machines again became a major topic. Concerning this point, BOY feels very well positioned and therefore the machine manufacturer from Neustadt-Fernthal already presented the new symbols for the injection moulding machines shown at Fakuma. Even when the Euromap 60 classification does not represent all applications according to an exactly established cycle, the high classifications show which injection moulding machines are the most efficient.

This was also made clear via the online presentation of the actual energy consumption of two injection moulding machines in the BOY booth. The BOY 100 E, which was equipped with the energy-efficient combination of servo drive and EconPlast technology, consumed only 2,7 kilowatt-hours (kWh) for the production of ICE frame components. The fast cycling application on the BOY 60 E with high material throughput per hour only required 7,8 kilowatt-hours (kWh). In comparison with similar sized machines without these modern drive and plasticizing technologies that BOY offers, a much higher total energy consumption would have to be recorded.

“We started very well and were able to make several agreements during the exhibition. We have achieved, even exceeded, our objectives we set for the Fakuma”. Those are the optimistic closing words of Alfred Schiffer.
