Hybrid Electric Injection Molding Machine by FCS – Taipei Plas 2016After its great success at Chinaplas this year, FCS Group presented their latest innovations at Taipei Plas 2016, focusing on energy-saving injection molding solutions.
The LM-SV Series introduced in this clip is a two-platen hybrid electric molding system, which combines the speed and precision of servo-motors with the advantages of hydraulic clamping forces, available from 500 to 3,750 tons and an injection speed of up to 250mm/s. Unlike other hybrid models, the LM-SV comes with additional servo-motors that support the charging and x-axis movements.
The injection unit features a high-quality gearbox by German manufacturer Knoedler. With this setup, operators can expect high-speed stability, precise metering and a long lifespan of their injection unit parts.
The servo-driven clamping unit along with an improved hydraulic circuit allows for fast cycle times of just 4.2 seconds/cycle. Thanks to a KEBA Control System the LM-SV series is ready for Industry 4.0 and ensures a smart production. For example, operators can install sensors within each cavity to detect product quality and the control system will automatically filter out defective parts.
Since the release of their first two platen injection molding machine in 2006, the FCS Group has sold over 60+ units in the following three years. Now buyers all over the world value the company’s technological competence.
