Vertical Series

Series CM 40 t, VM 60 – 200 t, VM R 40 – 270 t – particularly for insert molding

The most recent generation of Battenfeld’s Vertical series features tailored solutions for insert molding with especially adapted automation equipment:

  • Vertical R: vertical clamping unit with rotary table for multi-station operation: 40 t – 270 t
  • Vertical V: vertical clamping unit: 60 t – 200 t
  • high-performance plasticizing systems for all thermoplastic, thermoset and elastomer resins for shot weights of up to 3000 g PS
  • high-performance UNILOG B6 control system
  • automation with robots and mold changing systems possible
  • extensive know-how in process engineering and mold design

Clamping unit

The clamping unit of the Vertical series is ergonomically designed and suitable for semi-automatic operation. 

Major advantages:

  • low, easy accessible working station
  • short cycle times through parallel movements through variable displacement pumps
  • good access to ejector for higher flexibility
  • ejector suitable for 2-, 3- or 4-station operation (Vertical R)

Injection unit

The injection units of the Vertical series guarantee high precision and reproducibility through their compact design with integrated hydraulic block and a hydraulically direct-driven screw. 

Outstanding features:

  • high flexibility due to one barrel being universally compatible with different injection units
  • easy access to screw because of swivelling injecion unit (up to …/ 1330)
  • momentum-free nozzle contact due to positioning of nozzle carriage cylinders opposite each other
  • precise axial movements of the injection unit through linear guide system
  • optimum melt homogeneity due to a uniform L/D ratio of 22:1 and 2000 bar injection pressure for medium screw diameters
