At Plast 2018, one of the world’s most important plastic processing events, Negri Bossi will officially launch a new platform Nova range of machines. The new solution of mid‐range machines replaces the Vector range of machines and is available in 700, 850 and 1150 tonnes, with injection capacities ranging from 2010 to 6107 cubic metre and Euromap classifications 4960, 7460 and 9750.
One of the key features is a revolutionary new X‐design toggle system that provides vastly increased strokes, tie bar distances and platen speeds in a very compact footprint. The range is also equipped with a new automatic filtered lubrication system in a closed loop, hydraulic control. The machines are driven by latest generation servomotor and pumps, providing higher modularity and offering greater flexibility across the range.
The range is also equipped with a brand‐new controller, Motus, that will ultimately be available across the full range of Negri Bossi machines. The Motus is a 21.5-inche multi touch screen with a total configurable interface, a user‐friendly and innovative gesture navigation allowing easy set up. The interface is also totally customisable, allowing the user to personalise screen and functions. A smart alarms function offers a state of the art fault management system.
These mid‐range Nova machines are being launched in two versions, servo hydraulic (Nova s) and hybrid (Nova i). Both machine classes will be running at Plast 2018, moulding products that will demonstrate the capabilities of each model. To complete the line‐up of Nova machines, is a full electric machine (Nova e) offered in the range 50
to 350 tonnes. Nova e will be shown on the Negri Bossi stand with mould solutions ranging from extreme speed packaging to precision moulding.
The launch of Nova will allow Negri Bossi to expand into new market areas. The new models will now cover a greater scope of sectors enabling customers to also specify Negri Bossi for all their specialist requirements.
At the Negri Bossi stand, there will be also a corner dedicated to the OpenPlast project. This is the Italian answer to the growing Industry 4.0. in plastic processing. In this area the company will demonstrate the progress of interconnecting and integrating various systems from different suppliers and technologies. With Negri Bossi providing the database of machine data, integration with the suppliers and components will allow the customer to receive the ultimate reliability and service support.
