Promoting efficiency: Arburg at Chinaplas
Visitors will be able to see electric, hybrid and hydraulic machine technology. Which of these types of drive is the most economical depends on the requirements of the particular product and sector.
Fast, high-quality volume production using reliable and efficient technology is essential in the packaging industry. And the new packaging version of the high-performance hybrid Hidrive series satisfies these requirements.
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 thanks to barrier screws and servo-electric dosage drives, and dynamically position-regulated screws, effective injection flow and energy-efficient operation thanks to the hybrid drive concept.
The hybrid Allrounder 520 H packaging model exhibited at the Chinaplas has a clamping force of 1,300 kN and size 400 injection unit. It produces a typical packaging item - an ice-cream tub - in a cycle time of 3.5 seconds.
Medical technology is another important sector for the Chinese or Asian market. For this industry, at the Chinaplas an electric Allrounder 370 E will produce a housing for use in a fluid mixing system. The exhibit has a clamping force of 600 kN and works with a size 170 injection unit.
In this medical application, all parts handling is carried out by a Multilift Select robotic system, which exemplifies Arburg's robotic range and highlights its advantages. Multilift robotic systems, like the Integralpicker machines, are fully integrated in the Selogica machine control system, and can be programmed easily, reliably and quickly thanks to the teach-in function.
