Applications

Plastics

KEB is found inside the leading Injection Molding machines globally. KEB drives and controls provide provide dynamic, reliable, and repeatable performance. The KEB performance advantage is obvious when you look at the final product - more throughput and better quality.

Injection Molding

COMBIVERT H6 Multi-axis Drive

The H6 was engineered with Injection Molding machines in mind. It uses a shared DC bus topology so it is easily scaled and very compact. The drives communicate via real-time EtherCAT and can control both induction and servo motors. The H6 is is offered with air-cooled and water-cooled heatsinks.

Extrusion

COMBIVIS Studio 6

KEB’s industrial PC platform is ideal for complete extruder machine control. Programmers benefit from KEB’s COMBIVIS Studio 6 IDE which supports IEC 61131-3 programming languages. Developers can leverage powerful KEB libraries. Advanced functionality for barrel heater control, drive communication, and load sharing are possible.

Extrusion

Remote I/O Modules

KEB offers many different expandable I/O modules. Modules can be flexibly added and even remotely mounted on the machine control. Digital, analog, temperature, and relay output modules are offered.

Extrusion

Heater Management

Heater management is a critical function for all extrusion applications. Customers can develop their own controls or use KEB’s pre-configures heater/cooling function blocks. KEB function blocks reduce development time while providing outstanding performance and flexibility. The temperature control has an auto-tuning function that optimizes control performance while reducing set-up times.

Extrusion

Panel Solutions

KEB offers complete extruder drive panels. The panels are UL508A listed and include the necessary breakers, EMI filters, and more. Optionally, a KEB HMI, C6 Router, or special filtering solutions can be offered if the application requires it. The SCCR rating depends on the drive size and components used.

Drives

COMBIVERT F5

The COMBIVERT F5 drive is ideal for this application. It has an internal PID function reserved for controlling an auxiliary process. It offloads processing from the PLC and does not require a special dedicated pump controller. The servo pump drive offers up to 60% energy savings.

Servo Motor

AC Synchronous Servo Motor

Faster cycle times are possible when KEB servo motors replace traditional fixed-speed pumps. Less heating and reduced noise levels make the KEB servo pump solution the clear choice.
