Visitors to the Burwinkel Kunststoffwerk GmbH stand at HANNOVER MESSE 2018 can look forward to taking a trip down memory lane. After all, who hasn't experienced the sheer joy of creating bubbles by dipping a wand into a tube of soap solution and then blowing? The children's favorite is being produced on a BOY 25 E injection molding machine at the Burwinkel stand in Hall 5 – an enduring success story that mirrors that of the toy itself.
No less than 25,000 machines in this series have been shipped since production launched in 1968 and, just like a Porsche 911, the BOY 25 E has been enhanced and optimized from generation to generation. The latest model boasts a clamping force of 250 kN and an energy-efficient servo-drive. Despite the machine's compact size, an easily accessible two-platen clamping system offers generous distances between the tie bars and platens to support a wide range of molds and removal devices. Meanwhile, the low machine hour rates continue to make the BOY 25 E extremely cost-efficient, ensuring an attractive price-performance ratio.
