ARBURG at the Chinaplas 2016

From one-off parts to high-volume production

ARBURG will present the entire spectrum of plastic part production at the Chinaplas from 25 to 28 April 2016 in Shanghai. At Stand E1G01 in Hall E1, a freeformer and two ALLROUNDER injection moulding machines will produce pill-splitters and IML tubs, as one-off parts and in high volume batches.

High-performance hybrid machine for the packaging industry
A hybrid ALLROUNDER 570 H in the "Packaging" version with a 2+2-cavity stack mould will produce IML butter tubs with a label printed on both sides. Four of these 200 ml tubs will be produced in a cycle time of around 3.2 seconds. Automation will be handled by a two-axis robotic system.

Electric ALLROUNDER for efficient high-volume production
An electric ALLROUNDER 470 E will produce pill-splitters using an 8-cavity mould. The cycle time here is 25 seconds. Owing to its high precision, speed and low-emission operation, this electric injection moulding machine is predestined for the production of medical technology items. A MULTILIFT SELECT robotic system will be used for part removal.

freeformer for prototypes and functional components
A freeformer will also additively manufacture pill-splitters made from PC for the medical technology sector – but in contrast to the ALLROUNDER, it will not do so in high volumes, but as small-batch items without the use of a mould. After removal of the support structure in a water bath, the two-part component featuring a joint can be used as a design sample or for functional tests, etc.
