OUR ALL-ELECTRIC MACHINE SERIES FOR COMPLEX APPLICATIONS
The new Mercury Series offers new potential for more complex mold geometries and for today´s challenging and innovative plastics. Fitted with high-end options on the standard machine there are hardly any wishes left unfulfilled and so far – those that has looked closely at the Mercury is thrilled.
FOUR TIE BARS OFFSET OUTWARDS
create 70% more mold surface and allow perfect parallelism of the platen.
The basic idea is the manifesto: one component for multiple functions and so fewer parts for the entire configuration of the machine. The platen become the tie bars and therefore provide for 70% more mold surface and a machine design that is 30% slimmer. The symmetrical design that results keeps all of the forces in the center and guarantees platen parallelism and the best tolerances.
So the clamping unit of the Mercury forms a completely self-contained unit and in principle it is capable of working by itself.
THE SIMPLIFIED TOGGLE SYSTEM
was engineered for simplicity with a central servo-direct-drive …
for dynamic and smoother movements. It was possible to totally leave out a lubricant in the toggle system. The Mercury´s clamp design creates optimum conditions for clean production and clean-room medical applications and it is extremely easy to maintain.
SEPARATED INJECTION AND PLASTIFICATION
for high melt quality, high dynamics.
The separation of plastification and injection allows for an extraordinary high melt quality. The plastification will be done by a high torque motor. The injection process happens using a central spindle driven by a servomotor. This promises the shortest response times and reaches speeds up to 500 mm/sec with an acceleration of over 10 g. The plungers insure a constistant injection volume, thereby achieving the lowest shot weight tolerances.
There are three plunger diameters available for each clamping force and in turn three screw diameters.
DECENTRALIZED BUS MODULE
The signals are read through the decentralized I/Os and emitted – on the spot where they are needed. This guarantees exact timing and no losses and disruptive influences of any kind.
A CENTRAL POWER SUPPLY
to the drive and the new generation of inverters from KEB make it possible to return the braking energy “burned” back to the national grid. The power requirement drops and the power saving becomes really efficient as a result.
SOFTWARE & CONTROL
LATEST CONTROL TECHNOLOGY FROM KEBA
The operator philosophy of the 15 inch touch-screen terminal is self-explanatory and ergonomic. The software is built on proven and well known standards and was enhanced by innovative features.
