Digital and sustainable into the future

Arburg is not only well positioned and represented in Shenzhen with its machine technology, but is also well prepared for future requirements in the areas of digitalisation and sustainability. Two digital terminals with the Arburg host computer system ALS and the functions of the arburgXworld digital customer portal are on display. Two additional info points will provide more information on the arburgGREENworld programme for the circular economy, carbon footprint and resource conservation, as well as on Arburg services. Zhao Tong outlines the strengths of the offer: "In addition to injection moulding machines, we offer a wide range of services, consulting and digital solutions. We help our customers with high-end technology to produce their products even cheaper, faster and with even higher quality."
The customer portal „arburgXworld“ links customers with Arburg.

Automated Allrounder 370 H for fast cycles

Of particular interest to trade visitors from the electronics industry is the Allrounder 370 H Ultimate with Gestica controller, 600 kN clamping force and 290 injection unit: with a fast cycle time of just seven seconds and a 16-cavity injection mould, the exhibit produces relay sockets from a 30 per cent glass-fibre-filled PBT. The Flexlift 5 with a payload of five kilograms removes the sprue and the moulded parts, which are then deposited separately downstream according to cavities.

Allrounder 1600 T: Six-axis robot at work

Finally, the Allrounder 1600 T with 2,000 kN clamping force and 170 injection unit is likely to attract the attention of customers from the mobility sector. Supported by a Kuka six-axis robot with a load capacity of ten kilograms, fluid connections and connecting parts are produced from polyamide 6 with 35 per cent glass fibre content (PA6 GF 35) and metal inserts. The products are produced in a 4-cavity mould in a cycle time of around 40 seconds. This automated turnkey system was customised to include a punching unit with punching strip conveyor and a PIN removal system. The Kuka six-axis robot was also implemented at the Arburg Technology Factory Pinghu.
The Flexlift robotic system was specially developed for the Asian market and is also only available there.

ARBURG is one of the world's leading manufacturers of plastic processing machines.
