Latest developments in plastics processing combined with consistent utilization of digital information herald a new era in production.
Intelligent simulation models create completely new opportunities in production planning, material utilization, productivity, reliability, and system intelligence. At the K trade fair in Düsseldorf, Fill Machine Engineering is showing how virtual and real processes bind together symbiotically, thereby elevating plastics processing to a new level. Industry 4.0 and communication 4.0. Man and machine in unison. Digitalization in all a company's departments can be seen on the Fill exhibition stand in Hall 13, Stand C59. At the same time, the new multilayer high-performance system for tapes is celebrating its premiere.
Austrian machine engineering company Fill will be presenting the Future Zone at K 2019 in Düsseldorf from October 16 to 23. Comprehensive digitalization in the sense of Industry 4.0 enables the highest levels of quality and efficiency in plastics processing. “The intelligent simulation models open up completely new opportunities in terms of component development and production planning. Together with leading manufacturers and partners, we are continuously developing concepts and solutions to meet current and future requirements for highly efficient production systems,” explains Wilhelm Rupertsberger, Head of the Plastics Competence Center at Fill.
multilayer ensures high performance
The new multilayer high-performance laying system is also being presented to a specialist trade audience for the first time at the K trade fair. This innovative system enables extremely fast laying of semi-finished fiber composites, thereby meeting the prerequisite for extremely high production rates. The concept is based on use of multiple laying heads. The tapes are fixed by ultrasound, which makes it possible to process the widest variety of materials. Automatic spool changing minimizes downtimes and ensures high system utilization.
Customer-specific complete systems for PUR production
As leading innovators, the Austrian machine engineering specialists also supply complete systems for PUR production. A significant scope of supply is the integration of customer-specific mixing and metering systems, extraction systems, and other process modules. In systems design, Fill focuses on flexibility with maximum system utilization. Molds and mold carriers are replaced with zero cycle-time impact.
