Hybrid machines

Our hybrid ALLROUNDER injection moulding machines are designed for top performance in thermoplastics processing. They combine electric speed and precision with hydraulic power and dynamics for uncompromising production performance. This enables you to produce cost-effectively and energy-efficiently.

The servo-electric drives for the toggle-type clamping unit and dosing effectively reduce cycle times and energy requirements. Hydraulic accumulator technology ensures precise, dynamic injection with high performance. As a result, the hybrid ALLROUNDERs are also predestined for applications with long flow paths and narrow wall thicknesses. In addition, detailed technical solutions, such as the automatic central oil lubrication system or the pivoting injection unit, minimise maintenance and set-up times in a sustainable way.

Highlights

  • The largest ALLROUNDER with 6,500 kN clamping force - including aesthetic and functional machine design and innovative GESTICA controller
  • Extremely short dry cycle times of the servo-electric clamping unit
  • Precise and reproducible set-down of moulded parts thanks to synchronised ejection
  • Energy savings of up to 40 % compared to hydraulic machines
  • Special "Packaging"(P) machine versions for packaging applications

Technology

Servo electric toggle system
Servo electric toggle systems are the ideal supplement to the fully-hydraulic ARBURG clamping units. Dynamic mould movements enable extremely short dry cycle times. All positions are moved to with precision. The technology also features greater energy efficiency.

Application examples

Coil shells
How efficient high-volume production of technical parts can function is shown by the turnkey project for manufacturing coil shells for brake systems in cars: About 18,000 parts are produced per hour and separated according to cavity and boxed, ready-to-ship.

Screw caps
Mass-produced parts in seconds: thanks to high production performance and short cycle times, the hybrid ALLROUNDER 720 H injection moulding machine with a 72-cavity mould converts almost 139 kg of material into screw caps per hour. Powerful ejection is required in synchrony with the mould movements.

Internal conductors
ARBURG has designed a production cell for the fully automatic volume production of internal conductors for Fakra connectors, overmoulding up to 72,000 pins per day. The associated robotic systems and peripherals are characterised by extremely fast and precise handling of the delicate inserts.

Thin-walled items
ARBURG offers complete turnkey solutions for the manufacture of thin-walled containers with inserts. Using the in-mould labelling process, two 1-litre buckets with labels and handles can be produced in a cycle time of only 4.85 seconds, for example. Material throughput is approximately 50 kg/h.
