Braunform is focusing on the current trend in tool and die technology for the K2010, concentrating primarily on tools for medical and multi-component technology. Braunform will be displaying a 32+32 rotary mould with a rotary table. Because of its slim design, the robust and fast rotary tables from the series 540 to the series 1400 (turning plate diameter 500mm to 1,360 mm) in accordance with EUROMAP, are going to be a highlight at the booth of the company out of Bahlingen. As a pioneer of multi-component technology, Braunform is one of the few suppliers offering upper-class rotary tables with diameters between 900 mm and 1,400 mm.
„Thin“ constructional depth: 900mm rotary table from Braunform
Braunform has been engaged in this technology since 1990. Eckard Herb, Managing Director of Braunform has been observing this trend towards larger rotary tables for a while: „Increasingly complex geometries as well multi-cavity strategies demand increasingly larger rotary tables. They need to be compact as well as fast. What counts most in practice, however, is a robust and flexible rotary table.“ Braunform has an extensive program, including the „Titans“ among rotary tables offering products up to 1,400mm diameters (turning plate diameter 1,360 mm).
Advantages in Detail
Despite extreme dynamic forces, rotary tables from Bahlingen stand out because of their steadfast robustness. The root of this robustness is in the covered rotary plate which guarantees high lifetime cycles. The flexibility of the design offers the user a variety of advantages in daily operations and allows for fast and efficient solutions in multi-component technology. Connections on the front side provide for optimal water supply, guaranteeing efficient coolant circulation for short cycle times. Direct transmission to the tool is also an option which can be realized. Setting up moulds on rotary tables from Braunform is done without adaptors. This enables the user to change moulds quickly and efficiently. However, the newest generation of rotary tables from Braunform doesn’t only stand for efficient change-over times. The rotary tables are very flat. They stand out because of what their shallow depths allow for: shorter parting distances when opening the mould saves on cycle time and there is also more room for complex moulds. A variety of special options round up the program. Rotary tables of the series 540 to the series 1400 are offered as a Basic Line or Premium Line at a maximum tool weight ranging from 450 to 4,000 kg.
K2010: Braunform displays 900 mm multi-cavity rotary table with TPE/PS parts
Braunform is going to display a 900 mm rotary table out of its middle-sized assortment at the K2010. The 900 mm rotary table will be fitted with the mould half of a 32+32 multi-cavity mould (32+32 cavity SGW for Regular Head Guard). In the mould, a customer of Braunform will produce a 2 component TPE/PS-combined razor part with a part weight of 0,83 g/part. According to Braunform, this rotary table is suitable for machines with clamping forces of 2.500 to 2.750 kN with a turning rate of 1,5 sec during continuous operation.
