ARBURG at the Interplastica 2019

Expertise in multi-component injection moulding

At the Interplastica 2019 in Moscow (Russia) ARBURG will present a complex multi-component injection moulding application at stand 21B25 in hall 02 from 29 January to 1 February 2019.

Part in a hard/soft combination
A two-component ALLROUNDER 570 S with a clamping force of 2,200 kN will produce ice scrapers weighing 80 g. First, the machine produces the pre-moulded part from ABS using the horizontally arranged size 400 injection unit. The 1+1-cavity mould supplied by Polarform is then rotated through 180 degrees via a servo-electric index unit. Finally, the TPE component is injected via a vertical size 170 injection unit. In this manner, a ready-to-use ice scraper with a soft blade is produced in a cycle time of around 40 seconds.
