Hotmelt molding machine VRC 601 edrive

Protection for electrical components

Flexible application

The hotmelt molding machine VRC 601 edrive is suitable for overmolding cable connections on plugs, terminals, and various types of circuit boards. To protect against environmental influences such as moisture and dirt, the electrical components are encapsulated and sealed with a liquid plastic coating.

Innovative design

The low-pressure molding machine stands out for its modern design. Equipped with a direct-feed single-screw extruder and three heating zones, it is ideal for processing various hotmelt adhesives and unfilled thermoplastics. The compact and modular construction allows seamless integration into existing production lines, enabling efficient automation.

High energy efficiency and quality

With a heating time of less than 20 minutes, the hotmelt molding machine is quickly ready for operation. The servomotor-driven closing device is adjustable so that the ideal closing force is used for the application, thus achieving high energy efficiency. Optical process monitoring is an optional extension for quality assurance in production.

Modern user interface

The touchscreen control features an intuitive user interface for easy and safe operation of the molding system in different languages. Recipes for the various applications can be saved and called up again. The selection of different user roles and operating modes, as well as machine networking functions, enable flexible and modern process workflows.

High operator safety

Operator safety during operation is ensured by a monitored safety device. Removing protective covers interrupts the electrical safety circuit, causing the machine to stop.

Compliant with machinery directive

The molding machine fully complies with European directives regarding mechanical and electrical safety, as well as electromagnetic compatibility.
