ARBURG at the Plastimagen 2017

High-end plastic technology for packaging and automation

ARBURG will be exhibiting the latest in high-end plastic technology on stand 720 at the Plastimagen 2017 trade fair in Mexico City from 7 to 10 November 2017. The focus will be on packaging and automation.

Cost-effective entry into injection moulded part production
An ALLROUNDER 570 C GOLDEN EDITION with a clamping force of 2.000 kN and a hot runner mould from Mexican company Evenflo produces batches of eight 13.6-gram closure caps in a cycle time of 23 s. Handling is performed by a linear MULTILIFT SELECT robotic system which is fully integrated into the SELOGICA machine control system.

High-speed packaging application: Noodle pots
High-speed, high-quality serial production for the packaging industry will be presented using the example of noodle pots made from PP. A Packaging version of the hybrid ALLROUNDER 630 H with a clamping force of 2,300 kN and a 4-cavity mould from Otto Hofstetter will be used for production. The cycle time for four pots is 4 seconds.

Automation: ARBURG buggy
ARBURG will use a turnkey system built around a vertical ALLROUNDER 375 V to demonstrate the automated injection moulding of toy buggies. Here, the ALLROUNDER produces the individual parts from PP using a 1 + 1 + 2-cavity family mould in a cycle time of 25 seconds. Handling and assembly to produce the final, ready-to-use product are performed by a six-axis robot.
