KraussMaffei Berstorff - Extrusion Machines


Krauss Maffei Automation

KraussMaffei Automation has 25 years' experience in automation systems for injection moulding machines. Automated systems are used for quality testing, insert placing, clip insertion, cleaning and priming, and for the Cleanroom and DecoForm technologies. Our linear and industrial robot portfolio permits complete automation solutions and turnkey solutions.

Sprue Picker

Sprue Picker
The servo sprue picker from KraussMaffei features a very compact and stable design. The telescoping stroke makes the SPX10 particularly well suited for use in low shop heights. It forms a unit together with the machine, providing the optimal solution on the market for use in small spaces.

Compact Robot

KraussMaffei Compact Robots
The compact robots of the LRX series are a reliable pillar for your production. The progressive design with decentralized control cabinet concept and rigid X axis provides a new form of accessibility. This guarantees flexibility for the simple retrofitting of sensors or extension with new media circuits. Rack-and-pinion drives provide for fast, high-precision movements in all axes. A central media portal allows for fast gripper changes and supports you in production with frequent product change-overs.

Linear Robot

Linear Robot
The linear robots in the LRX/LRX-S series from KraussMaffei distinguish themselves by their wide range of variants. They cover a clamping force range of 350 kN to 54,000 kN, and can be used universally for all types of injectionmolding machines – irrespective of brand or manufacturer. For linear robots from KraussMaffei, there is an online programming wizard, called "WizardX", which is used in conjunction with the MC6 control unit. It makes programming the robots enchantingly simple.
