Swiss Plastics Expo Arburg presents intelligent injection moulding and recyclate processing in Switzerland
Once again in 2023, the trade fair year will start for Arburg with the Swiss Plastics Expo in Lucerne, Switzerland. From 17 to 19 January 2023, Arburg will be at stand C1061, hall 1, in both physical and digital. The main topics at the stand will be sustainability and digitalisation.
At Swiss Plastics Expo, Arburg will showcase an electric Allrounder 370 A with Gestica control system. The machine will be producing cups from recycled PP. Visitors will also be introduced to the new expansion stage of the “aXw Control Fillassist” feature, which will be showcased on the Allrounder, and the Arburg-X-World customer portal for the digitalisation of services and business processes will also be demonstrated at the trade fair.
A turnkey system featuring an IT networked, electric Allrounder 370 A with a clamping force of 600 kN will be demonstrating how high-quality cups can be produced from recycled PP. The machine features the standard Arburg IIoT gateway and the Gestica control system — including the new expansion stage of the aXw Control Fillassist. This feature supports AI-assisted variant analysis for time-saving mould filling studies and has been developed in partnership with Simcon. The exhibit will be producing the well-known “crinkle cup” with its distinctive look on a single-cavity hot runner mould made by Haidlmair. A Multilift V 20 Cartesian robot removes the cups and unloads them from the system — a robot not exhibited before in Switzerland.
The stand will also feature a demo terminal to showcase the extensive features of the Arburg-X-World customer portal, which enables users to manage many of their services and business processes on a digital platform with Arburg. Customers have almost unlimited possibilities to access up-to-date information on the machine fleet, and to start and monitor machines, for example. Equally, 24/7 service requests can be made or online spare parts ordered — on all digital devices.
