Your benefits for injection molding machines
Compact size & simple installation
The compact and simple design of the control cabinet is always an important consideration in machine engineering – because of costs on the one hand, but also because of the structural framework conditions and the installation requirements.
This is exactly where the KeDrive D3 comes in. The flexibility of the multi-axis controller significantly reduces the space required in the control cabinet, and the simplified wiring concept reduces installation time and thus manufacturing costs – the most important factor in the series manufacturing of machines.
Control technology in the drive
The control system makes the difference!
The sophisticated control structure of the drive as well as predictive feed-forward control provide for the greatest-possible dynamics paired with the highest precision.
These highly optimized structures in combination with built-in pressure control with a cycle time of 125 µsec are used for injection molding applications or applications with fast processes, and support the fastest-possible responses to process changes. This high-speed control achieves an excellent quality of the parts as well as reliable process windows, keeping the weight of the plastic parts constant and minimizing rejects.
The built-in control package for hydraulic servo-pumps rounds out the technology portfolio and thus offers an attractive end-to-end solution for hybrid injection molding machines.
Large motor portfolio
KEBA servomotors are three-phase motors for sophisticated servo applications; they are available for all speeds and voltages. The servomotor is particularly well suited to highly dynamic injection molding machines. In combination with the KeDrive D3 drive system, it allows your machine to achieve its maximum performance.
Optimization at all levels
The large number of single axes and double axes in combination with the matching motor selection creates a wide range of options for optimizing your machine series.
The high peak currents of the drives paired with power supply units specially designed and optimized for the processes in injection molding machines make an attractive complete package.
Our experts are here to help you at any time: If desired, they can analyze your entire machine cycle and partner with you to find the optimal design of your drive system.
An end-to-end system is more than the sum of its parts
The KeDrive D3 solutions integrate perfectly into the KePlast end-to-end system. EtherCAT high-speed communication is used between the control system and the drive unit.
The software in particular – for example, the seamless integration into the KeStudio tools suite, the centralized data management and diagnostics, and the interplay between the controller components and the drive – highlights the strengths of the end-to-end system. Customers have been enjoying these benefits of the KePlast end-to-end system for more than 3 decades.
