Efficient cup-production with Kiefel and Bosch Sprang

09 zář 2016

Faster, greater, stronger: Thermorunner KTR 6.1 Speed
More and more people want beverages when on the move, and producers of the cups required rely on Kiefel as they react to this growing demand. The latest generation of the Thermorunner convinces right across the range. This October's K 2016 trade fair is to be the launch venue for a flagship product destined to set new standards.   Up to 45 production cycles per minute.   The very latest in cup-forming machines Kiefel’s KTR 6.1 Speed produces more cups than ever. A significant rise in punching force - combined with a greater forming area - increases the number of cavities even more. The newly developed pre-stretching plug is actuated by a powerful linear motor. Faster pre-stretching has a positive effect on material distribution and processing speed. Our recipe for success can be summed up as higher quality in less time.   Hygienic production   A sophisticated stacking and picking system allows the KTR 6.1 Speed to produce even thin-walled cups in a reliable manner. The KIST vertical stacking system works without the assistance of brushes or rubber elements.The resulting avoidance of friction ensures smooth, hygienic production.   Tool Technology by Bosch Sprang   The benefits of the KTR 6.1 Speed for cup manufacturers include, apart from faster processing and better products, the usual Kiefel reliability across the entire line. This full use of available performance naturally requires topquality machine tools to match. The tool used has been developed and produced by Bosch Sprang, one of the sector’s most prestigious suppliers. Domed lids designed to fit these cups are produced on Kiefel’s new Speedformer KMD 78 Power machine. Both machines will be on show this October at the Düsseldorf K 2016 event.   Kiefel Thermorunner KTR 6.1 Speed – all the advantages at a glance:
  • The higher performance of our drive systems allows production rates to be increased to up to 45 cycles per minute.
  • Increases in the size of the forming area and punching force (leading to a greater number of cavities) likewise help to maximise output.
  • Pre-stretching plug configured as a linear drive with increased acceleration and stamping force.
  • Vertical-stacking and picking system: Reliable production even of thinwalled cups; hygienic, low-maintenance operation without brushes or rubber elements.
