Simple operation combined with maximum efficiency: the new SPEEDFORMER KMD 78 from KIEFEL

High output and considerably-lower production costs for the manufacture of formed components made of PS, OPS, EPS, PP, PE and PET.


The SPEEDFORMER KMD 78 automatic pressure forming machine has allowed Kiefel to extend its KMD series to include a particularly cost-efficient variant, which supplies just the right amount of forming technology to cover a wide range of components.

Advanced technology is the secret. Equipped with HTS ceramic heaters for the consistent distribution of heat-output, with well proven toggle drive and motorised upper-yoke adjustment for both the forming and cutting stations, KMD 78 fulfils all the essential requirements for the cost-efficient production of formed components. Tension bars help ensure both the play-free movement of the drive components and the precise repeating accuracy of cutting procedures. A newly-developed, two-stage cutting system provides a particularly accurate cut. The fully-adjustable stacking unit operates from bottom to top, while the formed components are placed onto a conveyor belt.

Fast reconfiguration to cope with different product formats guarantees fast tool-changeovers in the forming and cutting stations. Horizontal adjustment of the spindle drive permits efficient length-adaptation of the corresponding formats.

The KMD 78 is equipped with a touch-screen-operated Siemens Simotion control system.

The unit can handle a maximum form-size of 760 x 540 mm, with a negative/positive formed-component height of up to 150 mm and a maximum film-width of 810 mm.

Tools are compatible to the KMD 78 SPEED.
