Neustadt-Fernthal, October 30, 2013
When he concluded, “the K 2013 exhibition was one of the most successful fairs in the recent past for BOY“, Alfred Schiffer drew a positive balance at the conclusion of the plastic trade fair. During the eight days of the exhibition a multitude of orders could be booked as a result of the many visitors at the open, bright and spaciously designed booth. The BOY exhibition team, which also included a number of worldwide distributors, conducted many promising conversations about pending projects. These will likely lead to machine orders in the near future.
New BOYs were impressive
With the presentation of six new machine types with a maximum clamping force of 1.000 kN and the newly introduced EconPlast, BOY pinpointed the expectations of the fair visitors. Improved efficiency of injection moulding machines was for many users the focus of their visit to the Dusseldorf fair. They found this at BOY, who presented along with the EconPlast units and the servo-motor pump drive very good efficiency classifications in their respective clamping force classes. The BOY 60 E and BOY 100 E, which have been presented for the first time at K 2013, each achieved a Euromap 60.1 classification of 9+. With the development of the EconPlast units, BOY made the melting and processing of plastics more efficient. Therefore, BOY feels once they confirmed their role as a technological pioneer.
A BOY handling unit was presented at the fair for the first time. The complete removal automation system, which was CE compliant, was demonstrated on the BOY 60 E. Now, in addition to injection moulding machines, BOY offers customized automation systems and the required protective housings as a total package.
Crowd attractions with flavor
Attractive applications like the production of Altbeer glasses on the new BOY 60 E that included a subsequent, local filling station attracted many visitors. The independent insertion and over moulding of blanks for hexagonal socket screw keys was impressive as well. Every visitor could produce his own tool kit on the new BOY 25 E VH. This experience – having operated an injection moulding machine themselves – will certainly remain a long time as a positive memory for many visitors. This is especially true for the many young visitors that experienced this hands-on moulding experience. Perhaps many will soon be entering the exciting field of injection moulding.
High-gloss delicacy dishes, which were produced on the new BOY 25 E, were very popular with the fair visitors. The production-related still pre-heated dishes were in great demand.
With its successful presence at K 2013 and its newly introduced machine types, the family-owned company from Neustadt-Fernthal sees itself as best prepared for the future. Even if the energy classifications are still new for many users, time is on the side of BOY because their injection moulding machines are verifiably the most efficient according to Euromap 60.1.
