One of the world leading technology providers for packaging and thermoforming machines, Illig, will be unveiling its latest sheet-processing thermoforming machine, the UAF, on 22 March, 2023. The new system for forming technical parts will be showcased at the Illig Technology Day at its company headquarters in Heilbronn (Germany).
“The UAF is the next logical step in our product strategy. The flexible and modular design of our machines is central to our consistent expansion strategy of the Illig product portfolio,” explained Jürgen Lochner, CTO/CSO at Illig.
The new UAF boasts some impressive features, including its adjustable clamping frames, automatic sheet loading, and its energy-efficient machine design. Shorter cycle times can also be achieved thanks to integrated preheating. Various machine sizes are available for all standard sheet sizes. With the new UAF, Illig continues to deliver higher performance, improved sustainability, and greater flexibility. At the Illig Technology Day, not only will visitors get to see the machine in operation, they will also witness the efficient tool changeover on the UAF. The program also includes a riveting presentation on the circular economy and further live demonstrations.
“In addition to the UAF, we’ll also be showing you applications with different sheets and materials presented together alongside our tool partners. Visitors are also welcome to discuss related topics with our technology experts, service technicians, and tool suppliers. We look forward to welcoming customers and interested visitors to our company headquarters in Heilbronn this March to discuss current challenges in automation, the circular economy, and sustainability”, Lochner concluded.
