Thanks to solid construction, robust mechanics and high-quality components, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag injection moulding machines have been reliably in operation for decades. However, growing demands for energy efficiency, process monitoring, wear protection and flexibility require modernisation of the injection unit, clamping unit or control system from time to time. Our retrofit programmes offer you every opportunity to upgrade your machine to the latest state of the art, to expand it into an automated production cell, to extend its range of functions or to network it via smart service tools such as myConnect.
- Extension of functions
- Smart networking
- Digital solutions
- High quality
Virtually every option available for a new machine can be retrofitted at a later date. This includes, for example, the installation of core pulling, signal interfaces, injection units, dosing drives, tools for process data control and improved energy efficiency or special equipment packages for Medical, IML and LSR.
With myConnnect, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag offers completely new options for remote diagnosis, live online support, fast ordering of spare parts and many other exciting functions via an app or machine control for all injection moulding machines of the current series.
The perfect design of the plasticising unit is vital for part quality and thus for economical production with minimised scrap. Thanks to in-house development and production of almost all components such as screws, barrels, nozzles and non-return valves, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has a wealth of experience in the field of plasticizing.
With the all-electric MultiPlug injection unit, almost any Sumitomo (SHI) Demag injection moulding machine can be upgraded for the production of multi-component parts. The energy-efficient retrofit package comes complete with a stand-alone control system and all necessary interfaces. As an option, the unit can be equipped with a wide range of additional options.
The extension of an injection moulding machine to an automated cell allows complex applications with significantly higher requirements in terms of cycle times and productivity. Depending on the automation task, parts are loaded, unloaded and transferred using linear robots or 6-axis robots. Sumitomo (SHI) Demag takes care of project planning, machine layout, control integration and fast changeover on site. Further information about automation.
