Chen Hsong and its South-German Partner Kunststofftechnik Wägemann (Haardt, Weißenburg, Germany) were able to supply a Chen Hsong Euroseries injection molding machine to Takata’s German location in Bad Kissingen. This Chen Hsong EASYMASTER EM400-SVP/2 has been delivered with great success in the middle of 2018. It was by no means just a standard injection molding machine! It was equipped with the latest features.
The new Beckhoff Xmold software, for example, was especially adjusted by Beckhoff and Takata together in order to meet the customer’s specific applications. Also the hardware met their high demands: bi-metallic screw and barrel, additional proportional valve controlled core pullers with pressure relief, hot runner control, barrel isolation, shut-off nozzle control by accumulator, sequential injection, energy measuring systems and various interfaces. These are only a few of the many options which Chen Hsong and Kunststofftechnik Wägemann have integrated in this high-performance machine. Thanks to its own foundry, Chen Hsong was even able to adjust the machine platen to the customer’s specific standards.
After the successful installation of the complete system and smooth-running production, the next Chen Hsong machine has already been ordered and new RFQ’s have been sent.
