Arburg presents injection moulding solutions at the Plastpol

 Arburg presents injection moulding solutions at the Plastpol
At the Plastpol, which takes place in Kielce from 7 to 10 May 2013, Arburg will be presenting the topic of "production efficiency" with two exhibits: the energy-efficient electric and hybrid Allrounders are configured according to the application and automated with robotic systems. The hybrid Allrounder 570 H in the new "Packaging" version impresses through its speed and productivity: four high-quality IML tubs for the packaging industry are produced in 3.5 seconds. The electric Allrounder 470 A will demonstrate the high precision of the Alldrive machine series with the production of delicate components for writing implements for C. Josef Lamy GmbH. The aim of both injection moulding solutions is high production efficiency, i.e. the production of quality products at minimum unit costs.

Fast, high-quality volume production using reliable and efficient technology is required in the packaging industry. The new packaging version of the high-performance hybrid Hidrive series meets these requirements. The Allrounder Hidrive models with the "P" designation have been consistently further developed to produce complete, high-performance solutions and optimised in virtually all areas. This includes the adaptation of distance between tie bars, clamping force and opening stroke to suit the performance characteristics required by the packaging industry.

Advantages of the Allrounder Hidrive packaging version are fast, precise and energy-saving mould movements thanks to servo-electric toggle-type clamping units, high plasticising capacities through the use of barrier screws and servo-electric dosage drives, as well as dynamically position-regulated screws, effective injection flow and energy-efficient operation due to the hybrid drive concept.

The hybrid Allrounder 570 H in the "Packaging" version, which will be exhibited at the Plastpol, has a clamping force of 1,800 kN and a size 1300 injection unit. It will produce margarine tubs using the in-mould labelling process, in a cycle time of 3.5 seconds. The moulded part weight is 6.5 grams and the material throughput is around 27 kilograms per hour. The 4-cavity mould is from Erkoc, the robotic system for feeding the labels and part removal from Roboplas.


ARBURG is one of the leading global manufacturers of injection moulding machines for plastics and the relevant additional equipment.
