Arburg Packaging Days 2014

Arburg Packaging Days 2014 Arburg will be holding the first ever "Packaging Days" event at its headquarters in Lossburg from 5 to 6 November 2014. Eminent speakers and guests invited from all over the world are expected to attend the international packaging technology conference, which will focus on innovations, trends and current market developments.

"Arburg Packaging Days 2014 was designed as a first-class forum for packaging experts from all over the world", says Arburg's Managing Director Sales Helmut Heinson explaining the objective of the two-day event. "Together with eminent speakers and partners, we will present trends and innovations, discuss market developments in the industry and provide an opportunity for the intensive exchange of experiences. We will focus on the topic of production efficiency across the entire value chain."

Specialist speeches and machine presentations

"Presentations on product design, material selection and automation solutions as well as current developments in mould, machine and process technology are featured alongside practical applications", adds Andreas Reich, Senior Sales Manager Packaging. Specific practical examples are used to demonstrate how Allrounder injection moulding machines can be specially designed for the relevant packaging application. When focusing on the production of packaging items, the entire production process must be monitored holistically in order to manufacture efficiently at the lowest possible unit costs and ensure maximum availability.

Highlights for insiders

Arburg presents innovative injection moulding technology and automation solutions on four hybrid and electric high-performance machines. Combining speed and precision with hydraulic power and dynamics, the packaging version of the hybrid Hidrive series is particularly suitable for the efficient large-scale manufacture of thin-walled technology and closures. The demonstration also includes the production of cups with full cover label in the IML process and screw caps that require the use of a 72-cavity mould.

Varied programme of events

After the specialist programme and machine presentations, the first day of the conference ends with a factory tour and an evening event spent together in the Customer Center. The optional programme includes a tour to the regional well-known Alpirsbacher Klosterbräu brewery and a visit to the company Foboha in Haslach. There, the experts give visitors an insight into the world of cube-mould technology. Besides the presentation of the mould technology, a complex application with an electric Arburg cube-mould machine can be seen in production.
