Arburg shows high-tech exhibits at Chinaplas 2011
The Allrounder H machine concept has been specially designed for a high production capacity: Thanks to the hydraulic accumulator technology and the generously-sized injection units, Allrounder H machines also boast a correspondingly high injection performance in relation to the clamping force.
Short cycle times
With the Allrounder H machines, the independent movement axes ensure a considerable reduction in cycle times. The high-precision, cost-effective toggle-type clamping unit can also be used to tap potential for significantly reduced cycle times on the clamping side thanks to extremely short dry cycle times, high acceleration and final speeds, as well as simultaneous movements of the clamping unit and ejector. With regard to the injection unit, the combination of position-regulated screw, hydraulic accumulator technology and servo-electric drives for mould and dosage also contribute to cycle time reductions.
Thanks to the high efficiency of the toggle-type clamping unit and servo-electric dosage drive, the Allrounders provide for energy-efficient operation. In addition, the energy recovery of the servo motors during braking also has a beneficial effect on the energy consumption of the machines. As well as the servo-electric drives and braking energy recovery, Allrounder H machines also use performance-adapted hydraulic accumulator technology with the minimum amount of installed pump capacity and motors of efficiency class EFF1. As a result and depending on the application, the energy-saving potential of the Hidrive machines can be as much as 40 percent. All Allrounder H machines bear the Arburg "e²" energy efficiency label as an indication of their energy-optimised operation.
Golden Edition: entry-level hydraulic model
The second exhibit, the Allrounder 470 C Golden Edition with a clamping force of 1,500 kN belongs to Arburg’s entry-level hydraulic machine series. Allrounder Golden Edition machines feature fixed clamping force/injection unit combinations and offer the usual Arburg high-quality technical components at a unique price/performance ratio. Like all Arburg machines, the Allrounder Golden Edition models are exclusively produced at the Lossburg parent factory and bear the mark of quality “made by Arburg – made in Germany”.
