A meticulously designed toolbox: High-quality aesthetics are ensured by overmoulded 3D films and hot-stamped ARBURG lettering, for example.
Integrated into the GESTICA control system: A SCARA robot prepares the pre-produced film inserts, a MULTILIFT V handles the moulded parts.
The material made from post-industrial recyclate (PIR) is obtained from PET films – meaning that 40% less CO2 is consumed compared with new materials.
Turnkey: Efficiently producing a toolbox
ARBURG solutions used
ALLROUNDER 1120 H
With a clamping force of 6,500 kN and an injection unit 7000, the hybrid ALLROUNDER 1120 H is ARBURG's largest injection moulding machine and produces the two half-shells of the toolbox in a cycle time of 60 s.
The MULTILIFT V 40 picks up the inserts from the centring station, moves past an ionisation bar, which cleans them, and inserts them into the 1+1-cavity injection mould. The robotic system then removes the two moulded parts and conveys the lid to a hot stamping station.
With the efficient turnkey solution, injection moulding, preparation, cleaning and hot stamping take place automatically. The inserts are positioned on workpiece carriers and conveyed via a double sliding table, where they are prepared by a KUKA SCARA robot that can be programmed via the GESTICA control system.
GESTICA control system
GESTICA offers unique assistants: With aXw Control FillAssist, even more precise process parameters can be generated directly in the control system during filling simulation. EnergyAssist optimises on/off switching for all heating zones.
Processing of recyclate
The black-grey components of the toolbox are made of post-industrial recyclate (PIR) obtained from PET films, which consumes up to 40 per cent less CO2 than new materials.
