Application expertise - live!

From the injection moulding of multi-component and micro-parts, the processing of silicone, thermosets and powders, to ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF), we offer you extensive expertise in all established and innovative processes. Experience our individual ARBURG solutions at first hand here.

Injection moulding

Injection moulding

Injection moulding is one of the most established and significant processes in plastics processing. It enables parts to be produced in high unit volumes with a high degree of design freedom. Internal threads, undercuts, gearings and free-form surfaces are also possible. more...

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

In contrast to conventional 3D printing, with ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF), qualified standard granulates are melted in a similar way to the injection moulding process. The freeformer uses tiny droplets to build one-off parts or small-volume batches on the basis of 3D CAD data without requiring a mould. By linking injection moulding and additive manufacturing, it is also possible to individualise high volume parts – fully automatically in single-unit batches. more...

Multi-component injection moulding

Multi-component injection moulding

Multi-component injection moulding brings together several colours or materials in a single mould to improve the design and function of plastic parts. Find out here how multi-component parts can be produced in a single step without joining technology or subsequent assembly and how the injection moulding process and robotic systems can be managed centrally in turnkey systems using the SELOGICA control system. more...

Micro-injection moulding

Micro-injection moulding

Homogeneous melt preparation, short dwell times and operation according to the first-in, first-out principle are key for the quality of micro parts. Our video examples show how the micro injection module and micro injection unit can be used to produce parts smaller than a single grain of granulate, or how to apply micro-structures to surfaces. more...

Thermoset injection moulding

Thermoset injection moulding

Granular thermosets and moist polyester (BMC) are the perfect materials for extra hardness, thanks to characteristics such as high mechanical strength and rigidity. Here you can see how the INJESTER screw feeder device can be used to add BMC and, for example, process it fully automatically to produce heat resistant insulating rails for domestic irons. more...

Silicone injection moulding

Silicone injection moulding

Moulded parts made from liquid silicone (LSR) open up many fields of application thanks to their universal material and processing characteristics, e.g. when producing hard/soft combinations and in medical technology. Clean room applications are also possible, as the following films show. more...

Injection compression moulding

Injection compression moulding

The injection compression moulding process allows low-stress, thick-walled components to be produced without sink marks and with high contour accuracy. Here, we will show you the complex procedure and innovative applications, such as the production of precision free-form surfaces. more...

Overmoulding inserts

Overmoulding inserts

Fremstillingen af hybridkomponenter medfører nye løsninger og produktideer. Her kan du se hvordan det er muligt økonomisk at omsprøjte indlæggedele „reel to reel”, at fremstille hybridkomponenter i serie automatisk eller at producere mindre serier på vertikale ALLROUNDER'ere med skræddersyede, manuelle aktiviteter. more...

Clean room technology

Clean room technology

To ensure that the product quality is right, clean room applications must operate precisely, automatically and under particle and germ-free conditions. In this context, ARBURG offers a host of innovative solutions: these range from the production cell docked to the clean room to individual configurations and turnkey clean room concepts. more...

Moulding lightweight parts

Moulding lightweight parts

Many industries see lightweight construction as a "problem solver". The objective is to reduce the weight of the parts while also improving their mechanical properties. ARBURG processes such as physical foaming with ProFoam, the fibre direct-compounding process (FDC), also in conjunction with thermoplastic composite sheets, and Particle foam Composite Injection Moulding (PCIM) are used. more...
