On track for success with the "Road to Digitalisation"

On track for success with… At the Fakuma 2018, Arburg provided insights into the digital present and future of injection moulding: on the "Road to digitalisation", digital products and services were presented and, in numerous expert talks, introduced in detail to the trade visitors. These included Arburg's six assistance packages, the introduction of a new customer portal and practical examples of "smart services". On the exhibition stand, existing and prospective customers were also able to experience how their new machines will look from 2019. This was because all the injection moulding exhibits appeared in the new Arburg colour scheme of mint green, light grey and dark grey.

"With the 'Road to digitalisation' and numerous practical examples from day-to-day injection moulding practice, we delighted our customers and demonstrated just how well positioned Arburg is with regard to the digital transformation. All those who are interested in this area found exactly the right partner in Arburg, regardless of whether they are just setting out or have already travelled part of the way," summarises Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and Spokesman for the Management Team. "The Allrounder 820 H in the new clamp design and 'Packaging' version, as well as the new ATCM SCADA system for Arburg turnkey systems also celebrated their premieres. Moreover, with the injection moulding of LSR micro components, the topic of Industry 4.0, the production of technical moulded parts and additive manufacturing, we presented some exciting applications on our ambitious exhibition stand."
