Well-established, but far from being outdated, one of the earliest Servomold unscrewing systems - the 8-fold unscrewing unit for the Swiss company Wild & Küpfer AG - has been doing its job reliably for 11 years. After more than 43 million successfully unscrewed molded parts, it is high time to tell a joint success story that continues to this day.
How servo technology exceeds the highest requirements
Small impurities, big disaster. In the production of pharmaceutical primary packaging or medical plastic parts such as high-precision Luer lock systems, cleanliness for machine, mold and molded part is not a formality, but a strictly regulated production standard, compliance with which determines the top or flop of entire batches. Nobody wants to have thousands of parts produced for nothing - because of contamination on the screw cap. Servo-electrical automation concepts not only perform translational and linear movements reliably, they also reduce contamination risks to a minimum. But what exactly is the technology behind this? Let's put the servo advantages under the microscope.
From the smallest decimal to the tool of the future
Injection molds in the medical sector require a special level of precision, cleanliness, and process control. In our team of experts, Röchling found a design partner for its automated unscrewing unit that combines a passion for detail with forward-looking technologies.
Servo technology already performs precise piecework in many areas of modern injection molding processes, whether it's the unscrewing of caps and closures or the closing of lids. For companies that are still hesitating about the investment, it is worth taking a detailed look at the cost savings and concrete advantages in order to make a far-sighted decision.
The world is turning faster every day - this also applies to the cycle times of industrial production. One forward-looking way to keep up with the Speed is to use servo-electric drives for rotational and linear movements in your injection mold tools. But where exactly are the advantages of modern drive concepts and for whom is the investment particularly worthwhile?
