An intelligent production cell comprising injection molding machines, robots and peripherals, fully integrated with industry 4.0 and with automation, will be Wittmann Battenfeld’s highlight at its stand at Interplast. The product is aimed at injection molded plastic transformers. With Industry 4.0 it is possible to establish communication between manufacturing equipment, products and their components to achieve efficient and personalized production.
The production cell relies on technology from the Wittmann 4.0 modular library, which includes numerous possibilities. The focus is on intelligent functions for self-optimization of individual devices, a uniform platform for data transmission between the injection molding machine and Wittmann peripherals, various modules for service and maintenance, as well as the ease of integration into an MES system.
In addition to the production cell, visitors to interplast can learn about the TEMI+ system (MES) and the CMS system for fully integrated maintenance monitoring. The novelty allows monitoring production data in real time and obtaining diagnostics of the machine’s operation for preventive maintenance scheduling.
Based in Austria, the subsidiary Wittmann Battenfeld do Brasil sells the complete line for the injection molding industry, such as the production cell featured at Interplast. The company is the only one in Brazil capable of delivering a complete plant, from the power plant to the injection molding machine, including the automation process. The advantage of the model is the ease of the entire process, from project development, installation and factory start-up, all from a single supplier.
Wittmann Battenfeld manufactures injection molding machines from 15t to 2000t, hydraulic, hybrid and fully electric for all types of applications within the injection molding industry. It also manufactures the entire line of peripherals for all sectors of machinery, injection, blowing, extrusion and robots for all types of machines, including complete automation of cells.
