ARBURG at the NPE 2018

Large machine to celebrate American premiere

As a state-of-the-art industry trendsetter and a leader in digital transformation and Industry 4.0, ARBURG will be present on stand W1325 in West Hall Level 2 at the NPE, to be held from 7 to 11 May 2018 in Orlando, Florida, USA, where company's hybrid ALLROUNDER 1120 H will celebrate its American premiere.

American premiere: Hybrid ALLROUNDER 1120 H
The hybrid ALLROUNDER 1120 H in the new design and featuring the visionary GESTICA control system will be showcased in America for the first time. The large machine extends the clamping force range by 30% to 6,500 kN. Its sophisticated design ensures even greater ergonomic efficiency and functionality, while the visionary GESTICA control system reproduces the look and feel of smart mobile devices. The exhibit on show at the NPE 2018 will use a family mould to produce the familiar folding step stools in the unique ARBURG design. The eight individual parts are handled by a MULTILIFT V 40 robotic system and assembled ready-for-use by means of a six-axis robot and assembly station within the injection moulding cycle. It takes only 60 seconds to manufacture the final product "ready-for-use" in a fully automated process.
