Arburg Efficient machine technology, applications and processes
Germany – A total of 27 Arburg machines will be on show at the leading plastics trade fair in Düsseldorf.
Arburg will be presenting innovative applications, processes and turnkey solutions for the efficient production of plastic parts – from single-unit to high-volume batches. On its own exhibition stand "13A13", Arburg will be showcasing twelve exhibits that demonstrate the current state of the art, including several world firsts, the company says. Visitors will have the opportunity to experience for themselves the latest trends in production efficiency, lightweight construction and Industry 4.0, as well as special industry-specific solutions, e.g. for the packaging and medical technology sectors.
"Anyone who is familiar with Arburg will know that you can always rely on us to produce a surprise and that we like to keep an ace up our sleeve. Things are no different in this important K year," says Michael Hehl, managing partner, adding: "The electric Allrounder Golden Electric entry level machine series made its debut in March. This was the first product innovation for this year, but by no means the last. Anyone who wants to find out what is driving the industry and how plastic processing will become even more efficient in the future is invited to visit our exhibition stand, A13 in Hall 13. We will be presenting several innovations and trends to international trade visitors – in injection moulding as well as additive manufacturing and Industry 4.0."
Innovative machine manufacturers like Arburg are rebranding themselves as suppliers of flexible production systems for IT-networked production in the "smart factory". The Lossburg-based company has been working on the practical implementation of this topic for 30 years and already presented a fully automated production system with no manual set-up processes, consisting of several linked injection moulding machines at the K trade fair back in 1986, the company says.
At K 2016, a vertical Allrounder 375 V, a Freeformer and an automation solution will be on show. Furthermore, visitors to stand A13 will be able to find out about future opportunities and Arburg solutions at a central information point. They will learn about how Arburg implements the topics of Industry 4.0 and the "smart factory" in its products and what practical examples are of relevance for plastic part production, the manufacturer says.
