At the last K Fair, the firm announced the launch of the 3,000-ton machine. Shibaura offers a wide range of fully electric machines that to date range from 50 tn to 2,500 tn, and at the last Ffria K 2022 the launch of the 3,000 ton machine was announced, as a result of the technological evolution in a 100% electric machine. since 30 years ago.
After 6 years as distributors and with more than 100 machines sold Olmaq, S.L., distributor and official technical service of Shibaura in Spain and Portugal, shares "its total satisfaction with the Japanese brand for the very high quality of its machines and the practically zero need for maintenance".
Shibaura offers a wide range of fully electric machines that to date range from 50 tn to 2,500 tn, and at the last K 2022 Fair the launch of the 3,000 ton machine was announced, as a result of the technological evolution in a 100% electric machine. since 30 years ago.
Shibaura began its journey in the 1950s, specializing in aluminum, zamak and plastic injection machines as well as ultra-precision machining centers. It was later integrated into a consortium of companies, giving rise to Toshiba, which means Tokyo Shibaura. Finally, in 2021 Plasticos Shibaura decided to continue on its own path again, leaving the Toshiba consortium. Shibaura produces machines in Japan, in its Numazu, Gotemba and Sagami plants, in China in its Shanghai plant, in India and in Thailand and is commercially present on all continents, either through its own offices or official distributors.
The Olmaq technical team. S.L. shares the advantages of this technology: "Experience has shown us that Shibaura machines require minimal maintenance, which is usually limited to an annual check of the tension of the transmission belts of the different groups (injection and closing) as well as the supply of lubrication grease cartridges for the linear guides on which the closing and injection group slides.
"Our machines can work in any environment and do not need any cooling system since it is the environment itself, air, that acts as a coolant," they indicate.
Another very important aspect is the mechanical robustness, from the smallest to the largest, since they are machines in which no material has been spared to make them resistant and durable, the sliding of the closing and injection groups on linear guides allows a perfect balance between robustness and energy savings. For Shibaura, energy savings, precision and low maintenance costs are one of its hallmarks, which makes them one of the brand's main competitive advantages.
It is interesting to note that Shibaura manufactures all the components of its machines in its own plants, from the servomotors, developed specifically for this application, to the servo amplifiers, in addition to the V70 control and the entire set of electronic cards that make up the control. This, in addition to resulting in the control with faster data processing and shorter scan time currently on the market, allows it to store practically all of the energy generated in the injection process, especially during braking, storing it in capacitors specially designed for this, and using it at the beginning of each movement without demanding energy from the network until these capacitors are emptied, starting their recharge cycle again at the time of any braking or taking advantage of the load backpressure, which which results in energy consumption well below average, making it probably the most energy efficient machine on the market.
The fully electric Shibaura machines are extremely fast machines with very high acceleration and braking ramps, which means that they reach maximum speed much earlier than conventional machines and brake much later, so they are at the same speed for more of any movement. real programmed speed, resulting in a shorter cycle time, and can incorporate high speed motors if the application requires it. It is also worth noting that "in processes in which prolonged compaction force is needed, our machines can maintain said compaction force, at the same value as the maximum injection pressure, for as long as necessary without the servomotors heating up or servo amplifiers and cause the machine to stop," they add.
Shibaura Electrical IMM, with its cutting-edge technology and human capital, is present in the main markets, standing out in those with the highest level of demand for precision and energy efficiency.
"Our technical sales team is delighted to provide you with all the advantages and information you require through personalized views," they conclude from Olmaq.
