That was our fifth episode

Saving – there's still room for improvement

31.05.2021
In the fifth arburgXvision episode entitled “Savings through hidden benefits! Saving – there's still room for improvement” was all about the exciting question of how productivity can be optimised through the perfect interaction of technology, organisation and digitalisation. Around 400 viewers tuned in live to the interactive ARBURG TV broadcast online.

Saving costs through digitalisation and stable processes
ARBURG experts Christoph Kiefer, Team Manager Technical & Commercial Sales Support, and Dr. Thomas Walther, Head of Application & Process Development, were guests in the studio.
Christoph Kiefer presented the ARBURG host computer system ALS as a digital image of the entire injection moulding production and discussed how this enables efficient production management along the entire value-added chain. The viewers learned how they can use it to make organisation, processes and sequences transparent at production level, analyse them and monitor them in real time, and make full use of capacities.
In the second expert presentation, Dr Thomas Walther addressed the importance of stable processes. He mentioned the digitalised machine with “smart” assistance functions as a quality monitor and an essential component for tapping “hidden benefits”. This would create reproducible processes for the efficient production of good parts and save time and costs.

Important savings potentials presented live
During the episode, there were two live links into the Training Center with very specific tips on potential savings.
During the first live link to the Training Center in Lossburg, ALS expert Peter Kowalewski gave specific practical tips on the host computer system and detailed planning.
In the second live link, Philipp Jarosch, team manager of the ARBURG plastics injection moulding facility, showed how the cycle time can be significantly reduced by optimising the production sequence.

Interactive questions and summary
During the final panel discussion with host Guido Marschall, the experts summarised the main findings of the episode and answered the viewers' questions.
