Industries

Automotive
On ALLROUNDER machines, a wide variety of materials can be processed in zero-fault quality to produce LED lenses, rain/light sensors, high-quality interior surface finishes or plastic-metal composites in the engine compartment, for example. We have mastered all processes and process combinations.

Packaging
The hybrid and electric ALLROUNDERs in the "Packaging" (P) version are designed for sophisticated packaging products such as thin-walled parts, IML containers or screw caps. The ALLROUNDER CUBE is specially designed for applications with cube moulds.

Electronics
The requirement profile of electronics products is as varied as the sector itself. With our injection moulding solutions, a wide variety of functional items can be produced – from housings with a decorated surface and hybrid connectors made from overmoulded inserts, through to sensors and cable grommets.

Medical
The medical technology sector requires high standards of precision and cleanliness. The stainless steel surfaces of the clamping unit can be cleaned quickly and are insensitive even to the aggressive agents commonly used during sterilisation.

Optics
When it comes to high-end applications for the optics sector, part precision, quality and cleanliness of the production environment must be 100% right. Thick-walled lenses, for example, can be produced with a multi-station mould using multi-component injection moulding. This reduces the cycle time significantly.

Technical injection moulding
Complex, high-precision technical components can be produced using ARBURG injection moulding technology - and always at competitive unit costs. In order to precisely meet customer requirements, we advance or develop new processes, mould concepts and machines on an ongoing basis.

Processes

ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF)
Unlike conventional additive manufacturing techniques, with ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF), qualified standard granulates are melted as in the injection moulding process. The freeformer uses tiny droplets of plastic to build the part on the basis of 3D CAD data.
Additive manufacturing - APF (JPG - 0,6 MB)

Multi-component injection moulding
Micro-components are often smaller than a single grain of granulate. A homogeneous preparation of the melt, short dwell times of the plastics and operation according to the first-in, first-out principle are therefore key for the quality of your parts. We also offer practical and efficient solutions in this area.

Fibre direct compounding (FDC)
During fibre direct compounding, fibres with a length of up to 50 mm can be added directly into the liquid melt via a side feeder. This minimises damage to the material during material processing. In addition, the fibre length, fibre content and material combination can also be individually adjusted.

ProFoam
During physical foaming with ProFoam, the plastic is mixed with a gaseous blowing agent in a granulate lock upstream of the injection unit. Microcellular "bubbles" are formed during injection. Using dynamic mould temperature control, lightweight parts with high-gloss surfaces can be produced.

Particle-foam Composite Injection Moulding
The PCIM process combines a foamed insert with a polymer component. By melting the surface of the foamed insert in a defined manner when injecting the plastic, a lightweight part is produced with a durable mechanical connection, dispensing with the need for downstream assembly steps.

Micro-injection moulding
Micro-components are often smaller than a single grain of granulate. A homogeneous preparation of the melt, short dwell times of the plastics and operation according to the first-in, first-out principle are therefore key for the quality of your parts. We also offer practical and efficient solutions in this area.

Thermoset injection moulding
ARBURG offers an efficient combination of reliable hydraulic and vertical ALLROUNDER injection moulding machines and a practical thermoset package for thermoset injection moulding. This system solution includes all the necessary equipment for the immediate production of high-quality moulded parts in large volumes.

Liquid silicone injection moulding (LSR)
ARBURG has been pioneering the development of liquid silicone injection moulding since 1980. This is reflected in the extent of our expertise and the LSR-specific injection moulding technology available. This means that we can devise the perfect system solution for the specific customer requirements.

Powder injection moulding (PIM)
This process enables the cost-effective series production of durable, precision metal (MIM) or ceramic (CIM) parts. The major benefit of the multistage process: freedom of shape. With ARBURG as your partner, you can interlink all process steps.

Injection compression moulding
This process enables the production of low-stress, thick-walled components without sink marks and with high contour accuracy. However, this is a complex process and requires a detailed knowledge of the process and high-quality machine technology.

Overmoulding inserts
Thanks to the integration of manual operations and innovative working methods, fuel tank strainers are overmoulded cost-effectively to a high level of quality in small batch volumes. A total of seven production steps take place within a total cycle time of 50 seconds.

Clean room technology
Production under controlled particle-free, hygienic conditions is decisive for product quality in many areas. Our combination of precisely configured injection moulding technology and customised clean room concepts ensure the highest quality standards.

In-Mould-Labelling (IML)
The IML process is suitable for high-speed packaging, as well as technical applications. This means, for example, that thin-walled containers can be labelled directly in the mould using inserts. The handling of the finished moulded parts is performed by a special IML system.
