ARBURG at PIAE Europe 2021

Conservation of resources in automotive engineering

ARBURG will take part in PIAE Europe on 8 and 9 September 2021 in Mannheim (Germany), with a presentation on the R-Cycle project, for which ARBURG is the exclusive mechanical engineering partner. ARBURG will also showcase examples of trendsetting components for the automotive industry (Foyer, Stand 119).

Presentation on the R-Cycle project
As part of an expert presentation (9 September 12.30 pm), Dr Thomas Walther, Head of Application & Process Development at ARBURG, and Dr Benedikt Brenken, Director of the R-Cycle Initiative at Reifenhäuser, will report on the experiences of ARBURG as the exclusive mechanical engineering partner and Reifenhäuser as the initiator of the R-Cycle joint project.
Using the application example of a “smart” turnkey system based on an electric ALLROUNDER 370 A, the presentation will show how high-quality recyclate can be recovered from a product after the use phase, and how the recycling loop can be closed.

Trendsetting component examples
In the exhibition area, ARBURG will present a selection of trendsetting components for the automotive industry, including injection moulded components and components additively manufactured using ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (APF). The range will include overmoulded inserts, hybrid components and application examples for lightweight construction.
