Netstal at NPE 2018 - American premiere of the Elios series

The Elios7500-6000 - an example of the new Netstal high-speed machine series - will bein the limelight at a North American trade fair for the first time. With an 8+8cavity stack mould, 473 ml delicatessen containers will be produced in a cycletime of 3.1 seconds.

The seriescurrently comprises four main versions with clamping forces of 4500, 5500, 6500and 7500 kN. A range of different injection units and screw diameters allow theElios machines to be tailored to a wide variety of applications. Across theentire series, 33 combinations of clamping force, injection unit and screws areavailable to the customer. Thanks to its strictly modular design, this modularequipment system can be used to implement practically any application.

"WithElios, our customers produce perfect thin-walled packaging at the lowest unitcosts. The fast clamping unit, the dynamic injection unit with two-valvetechnology and high process stability are the keys to success", said MattMembrino, sales manager Netstal USA. The particularly low power consumption of the machine and theextremely robust and stable construction make the series a sustainablesolution.

Theheart of the Elios is the newly developed hybrid drive concept of the clampingunit with 5-point dual toggle lever. The energy-efficient combination of anelectrically powered travel motion and the hydro-mechanical design of theclamping force leads to considerable acceleration of the entire movementsystem. The Elios 7500 thus achieves a dry cycle time of 1.9 seconds. Thesmaller members of the series are even faster: The Elios 5500 achieves 1.7seconds, the Elios 4500 even just 1.5 seconds.
