Open-house events for customers and employeesIn order to offer a "live" presentation of the company's products and services on the occasion of the "25 years of Arburg Netherlands" anniversary, Arburg BV organised a two-day open-house event at the subsidiary's building. With four exhibits and innovative applications, the topics of packaging, Industry 4.0, additive manufacturing and bio-plastics were intensively analysed. An Allrounder 570 H in the Packaging version with Brink automation produced four thin-walled IML tubs in a cycle time of 1.87 seconds. The practical example of Industry 4.0 from Arburg was also a highlight: this was a turnkey system for the varied injection moulding of individual elastic tension straps, customised to customer requirements. The processing of bio-plastics on an automated Allrounder injection moulding machine and additive manufacturing with the Freeformer rounded off the practical part. Together with the expert presentations, visitors received a comprehensive overview of the latest developments and trends in plastics processing.
Gerrit Hazeleger was particularly pleased with the consistently positive response to the anniversary events: "Our guests from industry and economy as well as from universities have praised the uniqueness of our event, which had provided them with an all-round successful mix of innovative technology, comprehensive knowledge transfer and intensive networking."
