Besides a continuous improvement in precision and in consequence improvement in quality a decisive point is the economic efficiency of the production equipment. This is illustrated and made clear with the following examples.
Energy consumption and cooling requirement
Comparison measuring show clearly that the E-series with the servo-drive enable a part production with 50% less energy consumption.
The use of the EconPlast further on reduces the energy requirement for the plasticizing by further 50%.
We would be glad to check the energy consumption on your machine.
Compared to competitive machines, BOY injection molding machines use considerably less energy. The servo-motor pump drive will save 50 percent energy compared to other drive technologies - and even more - than that, depending on the application.
Due to the low current consumption and the effectively designed hydraulics system, the cooling requirement is extremely low.
Operating and set-up times
The operation of BOY injection molding machines is very easy and clear, due to the intuitive and fast operation via Windows-oriented touch-screen surface. This is a time and cost advantage for the user which should not be undervalued. For many years, BOY control systems have been leading with regard to precision, information, and operation. Easily accessible two-platen clamping systems also ensure rapid mold changes.
Low space requirement
Due to the extremely compact design of all BOY injection molding machines, the actual space needed is reduced by almost one third. Thus, more machines can be placed in the same space. Rather than invest in more production space, you may use the money for your production means.
Peripheral equipment can be placed on top or below the machine and within the machine's footprint. Very often, no additional space is required.
Investment and operating costs
Cost is certainly another consideration. The purchase of a reliable BOY injection molding machine, which are well known for their low operating costs is the best decision.
Overall, the operating costs play a much more important role than is generally assumed. During the long machine life, only about 20 % of the total machine costs are investment costs. More than 80 % of the entire value are needed for the operation itself. With regard to those follow-up costs, the user should consequently take advantage of the saving potential that presents itself by selecting the right machine.
Calculation examples of machine hours rates of BOY injection molding machines illustrate the low operating costs. Depending on the machine configuration used, the operating costs calculated per hour of production are markedly lower than those for competitive or older machines.
