This IML production cell clearly demonstrates that the high-performance hybrid machine enables extremely fast, reliable and, at the same time, high-quality processing. This enables Arburg’s goal of production efficiency, i.e. cost-effective part production at low unit costs throughout the entire value-added chain, to be achieved.
Because the electric Alldrive series is characterised by high precision, reproducibility and energy efficiency, writing implement manufacturer C. Josef Lamy GmbH uses electric Allrounder A machines in its production. For the Plastpol, the company will provide a 4-cavity mould: components for writing implements will be produced on an Allrounder 470 A with a clamping force of 1,000 kN and size 170 injection unit. The moulded part weight is 2.42 grams and the cycle time is 21.7 seconds.
The moulded parts will be removed by a vertically operating Multilift V, which, like all Arburg robotic systems, is fully integrated into the Selogica machine control system. A comparable automation solution is used by Lamy in its own injection moulding production. In addition to the advantages of the electric Allrounder, the central control system of this application enables shorter cycle times and extremely production-efficient operation.
The machines presented at the Plastpol demonstrate the potential of the modular Allrounder range: Arburg technology as well as customer and product requirements can be perfectly coordinated to suit the individual application. The main focus is always on production efficiency: it is essential to use resources as efficiently as possible and exploit available potential to the full. The aim is maximum productivity at minimum operating costs and therefore to achieve a high level of efficiency.
For this purpose, Arburg works together with the customer in examining the entire value-added chain and considering all influencing factors, from product design and mould technology through to production planning. This approach is increasing in importance worldwide.
