MACHINES FOR WALKING SAFELY

Main Group machines are the reply to the latest trends for the production of safety and working footwears.

“At work and fro all occasions, the latest trends in safety footwear can be found, above all, in rubber boots and plastic materials dedicated to accident prevention and studied to ensure the maximum of comfort and resistance”.

This is what the Foto Shoe magazine showed in the September 2013 issue.

AN EXCELLENT SAFETY FOOTWEAR

MAKING AN EXCELLENT SAFETY FOOTWEAR

depends also on the injection machine:

if it is a MAIN GROUP model, it’s an assurance.

  • Sturdy and reliable machines working all over the world
  • Assistance to Process Working (machine+materials+moulds+technology) in all processing stages
  • Technical Assistance before and after sales
  • Tech Support and original spare parts service continuous and in time.

E266 EVALUTION machines: EVA innovation goes on

E 266 EVALUTION is a series of machines for injection of  EVA in one and two colours. It’s not only a new series of machines, a brand new way to conceive injection of EVA for one- and two-colour production.

Highlights on:

– NO REJECTS that means HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY and LOWER MATERIAL COST

– INCREASABLE ENERGY SAVING thanks to

–> INNOVATIVE MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS

–> EFFICIENT PROJECT DESIGN

ENERGY SAVING: earn by saving

Today the design of all Main Group machines is done according to a real and significant energy saving on the production unit.

Design solutions appropriately studied, such as the use of electronic and hydraulic components of latest generation, allow to drastically reduce the energy costs, to increase productivity, and to appreciably reduce the finished product cost.

Examples are many and we invite you to contact us to evaluate them together:

Very low energy dissipation, so as not to require refrigeration units and, for the same reason, to halve the oil quantity normally used

Flow and pressure such to ensure high production yield by assuring at the same time very low energy impact

Total reductions of energy consumption, which can be as high as 50% – for instance: hour consumption can go from 60kW to 30kW – ensure a significant reduction in the cost of shoe or sole.

OPEN HOUSE IN MAIN GROUP – October 8, 2012

In the few hours during which the meeting took place, the morning of Monday 8 October, more than 130 people attended the open day.

They were able to closely see and personally touch the new reality of Main Group: two new establishments, efficient and modernly organized departments such as the latest Research&Development one that has always been true core of the Main Group technology.

And the production in full swing:

– machine mod. Omega-900 in working demonstration complete with moulds producing boots in PUR+PUR and TPU+PUR materials.

Already sold in different types, Omega machine allows to produce at the same time and in the same production cycle, boots in the different combinations: PUR+PUR and TPU+PUR.

– Machines in assembly phase:

  • Different models of DELTA machines for the production of TPR boots.
  • One model of the E266 EVALUTION machine for two-colour EVA – the same model as the machine contemporaneously showed at the Simac Fair in Bologna.
  • Different models of SP.45 and ROSS, the static machines for unit-soles in TPR.
  • One model of PRAGMA, the rotary machine for direct injection onto upper of PUR+PUR and TPU+PUR.

SUCCESSFUL TWO-COLOUR EVA PRODUCTION

The new machine E266 EVALUTION for two-colour EVA in operation at the booth attracted a lot of attention.

The series of E266 EVALUTION machines incorporates the whole experience and know-how that MAIN GROUP has accumulated in the EVA injection and in particular in the two-colour EVA production.

Number of stations available: 2 – 4 – 6 – 8 stations. The machine showed at the Simac fair was in the 4-station version.

Number of colours: one or two, also one only colour but in two different densities.

Type of material to be used. EVA in one or two colours or densities which allows:

– excellent comfort/stability ratio

– velvet / rubber touch

– lightness

– very good hot / cold insulation.

TECHNICAL ADVANTAGES

The absence of rejects such as long sprues and flashes, an aspect to be always considered in the EVA production, allows to get an higher productivity and to save in the material quantity and cost.

Thanks to the innovative and revolutionary system, the mould cleaning in the E 266 EVALUTION machines is extremely simple and fast.

The operator has the possibility to work easier and in optimal conditions, to drastically reduce the time required for cleaning the mould, thereby increasing production considerably.

The whole design of the machine has seen the adoption of mechanical solutions oriented to significant energy savings.

The examples are manifold, one among many the closing phase: a mechanism allows a considerable increase in the speed of movement thus obtaining a drastic reduction of time and flow rate of oil used in step 4, all to the advantage of quality in the final product and of productivity, as well as energy savings

In the E 266 EVALUTION, thanks to design solutions adopted for the whole hydraulic system and for the hydraulic unit, the dissipation of energy is very low so as not to require a refrigeration unit

The study and the technical design have led to the identification of 4 injectors as the optimal solution to allow great flexibility in the use of more colours during the production cycle of the machine
