Wittmann Battenfeld has installed a state of the art SmartPower 90/210 UNILOG B8 Injection Molding Machine at the Polymers Center. The machine is the heart of an Industry 4.0 work cell including a TCU, robot, blender, dryer and granulator. Its small footprint is perfect for our lab, allowing for more seating in the Wittmann Battenfeld Robot Operator classes and PCE classes. Having this hydraulic machine allows us to show students the differences between electric and hydraulic clamping units, and also mount larger molds than we can run in our two 55-ton presses.
