BSH Hausgeräte chooses Kiefel

05 Sep 2019

The new machine concept ensures the highest quality and lowers production costs

The leading European home appliance producer BSH has again opted for a machine from KIEFEL GmbH, Freilassing for their plant in Giengen, Germany. The machine in question is the KID 100/230 BFS-R thermoforming system with forming and punching tools, on which the company produces refrigerator door liners.

The new thermoforming machine concept represents a significant milestone for the factory in Giengen. It enables the home appliance specialist to increase energy efficiency whilst higher output of deep-drawn parts has helped further lower the cost per unit.

Kiefel launched the innovative door liners manufacturing concept onto the market in 2018. Its energy-efficient heating, reliable trimming, reduced set-up times and sophisticated waste management are impressive. In thermoforming, 80 percent of the electrical energy is consumed by the heating process. With the KID 100/230 BFS-R, the Freilassing experts have succeeded in reducing the heating energy by up to 40 percent thanks to a novel heating configuration. The thermoforming specialist made full use of its packaging division's extensive know-how when developing the forming/trimming as part of complex process. A multitude of delivered machines with forming/trimming tools provide solid experience and comprehensive knowledge.

The KIEFEL engineers have also improved the forming process itself. Features such as the fully servo-controlled knee lever system and the tool height difference compensating function ensure first class trimming of components and a trimming knife long service life. Approximately 600 formed and trimmed doors are produced on a 2 cavity tool every hour. Frequent tool change is standard. The new fully automated tool change program handles this within five minutes – entirely unmanned!

The machine concept reduces space requirements by 30 percent and increases performance by up to 300 percent compared with conventional door thermoforming machines.

Other features include lower energy consumption and cost savings thanks to reduced operating and maintenance costs. Lower production costs combined with enhanced product quality – a solid argument for investment in the KIEFEL KID 100/230 BFS-R!
