Arburg busy stand at Fakuma 2017

A Packaging version of a hybrid Allrounder 570 H demonstrated a high-speed thin-walled application especially for the packaging industry. In a cycle time of less than 1.9 seconds, the high-performance machine produced four IML tubs with a wall thickness of 0.32 millimetres that were packaged directly in boxes. This amounts to a production output of around 7,700 tubs per hour. The turnkey solution involving an electric two-component Allrounder 570 A with a linear Multilift V 15 robotic system was also very popular with trade fair visitors. The system manufactured two complete watches in one 70-second injection moulding cycle – an impressive demonstration of what can currently be achieved in the processing of liquid silicones. The 2+2-cavity mould came from Rico and the dosing system from Reinhardt-Technik was connected to the Selogica control system via an OPC UA interface. Assembly as a ready-to-use wristwatch is performed by a linear Multilift V 15 robotic system.

Smarter service

Arburg also presented numerous smart solutions in the service area. This included condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, the remote maintenance tool for fast, efficient and reliable online support, the new "Mobile Maintenance" ALS module for maintenance and repair and machine connectivity via various OPC UA interfaces.

Arburg defines Fakuma

Arburg presented a total of ten exhibits on its own stand and ten more with partners. This presence was a reflection of the importance of the Fakuma which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Arburg has not only always been the largest exhibitor, but was also co-founder of the Fakuma. When Paul E. Schall presented his idea to Eugen Hehl decades ago, he was immediately attracted to the concept of a trade fair at Lake Constance: practical relevance combined with professional expertise, an attractive location on the German, Austrian and Swiss border and a familial atmosphere – a winning formula that has remained extremely successful to this day.
