WITTMANN Awarded for Micropower, Designed for Injection Molding of Micro Parts at Plastpol 2011

Published on 2011-06-08. Author : SpecialChem

WITTMANN BATTENFELD has received an award in the category "machines and equipment for plastics processing" at the Plastpol, the International Fair for Plastics Processing, held recently in Kielce, Poland.

WITTMANN BATTENFELD's overriding theme at this year's Plastpol was the costand energy-efficiency displayed on the all-electric machines of the new PowerSeries product generation. But the all-electric machines' capability for medical technology was also impressively demonstrated.

WITTMANN BATTENFELD has received medals in the category "machines and equipment for plastics processing" for its MicroPower, the machine of the company`s PowerSeries designed for the injection molding of small and micro parts. One of the most interesting aspects of the MicroPower is its innovative two-step screw-plunger injection unit. This injection unit can be used to inject thermally homogeneous melt, resulting in premium-quality parts while ensuring extremely stable production and short cycle times. This makes the machine extraordinarily cost-effective. At the Plastpol, a MicroPower 15/7.5 was used to produce paper clips from POM with a six-cavity mold from Microsystems UK in a cycle time of just 4 seconds. The finished parts fell onto a conveyor belt. With this application, the company demonstrated the highly cost-effective production of small parts.


WITTMANN BATTENFELD, based in Kottingbrunn, Austria is one of the leading manufacturers of injection molding machines for the plastics industry. With its own sales and service companies as well as representations in about 60 countries, WITTMANN BATTENFELD provides optimal support to its customers in all matters concerning injection molding technology. Its innovative strength, highest precision and strong focus on maximum customer benefit make WITTMANN BATTENFELD a valuable partner for its customers.
