ARBURG at Swiss Plastics

Electric ALLROUNDER produces precision parts

At the Swiss Plastics trade fair, which will take place from 21 to 23 January 2014, ARBURG (Hall 1, Stand C1061) will present a cost-effective injection moulding solution for technical precision parts: an electric ALLROUNDER 370 E injection moulding machine with servo-electric INTEGRALPICKER V.

Cost-efficient entry into the world of electric machines
“All factors that increase energy efficiency, reduce cycle times and optimise production organisation help to improve the cost-efficiency of part production," explains Marcel Spadini, ARBURG’s subsidiary manager in Switzerland. This is precisely what will be demonstrated by the exhibit, an electric EDRIVE series ALLROUNDER with a servo-electric INTEGRALPICKER V. The machine will use a Stamm mould to produce two 8.5 g housings for knife sharpeners in a cycle time of 23 seconds. The robotic system offers low-cost entry into automated part removal.

Additive manufacturing with the freeformer
Furthermore, visitors to the Swiss Plastics fair in Lucerne will have an opportunity to see the new freeformer for themselves as part of a specialist presentation. This unique system for additive manufacturing will be introduced by one of its creators, ARBURG Managing Director Technology & Engineering Herbert Kraibühler.
