Production efficiency

Efficient production reduces unit costs

Production efficiency means making rational use of resources and exploiting the full available potential. We have been channelling all our efforts in this direction for decades. We can offer you maximum productivity at minimum operating costs and therefore a high level of efficiency.

To find the best solution for you, we look beyond pure machine technology and consider the entire value-added chain, including all influencing factors, from product design and mould technology through to production planning. You can therefore set the course for perfect component quality at minimal unit costs as early as the planning stage. However, you can also achieve optimisation in existing production, often without any additional investment. Take the first step – it will be well worth it!

Highlights

  • Maximum productivity with minimum unit costs: ARBURG focuses on the overarching topic of production efficiency
  • Considering the entire value-added chain: using ARBURG know-how to make more rational use of resources
  • Exploiting savings potential: reducing cycle times, energy requirements, material input, personnel, processing times, production steps, downtimes and reject parts

Holistic approach

Product design
You can already reduce the costs for a component in the design phase. With you, we can fine-tune all the significant factors to ensure truly efficient production. These factors include the optimisation of part geometry, saving on material and selection of the right material, as well as minimising production steps, e.g. by combining several plastics.

Machine technology
The injection moulding machine has a great influence on production efficiency and unit costs. The modular ARBURG product range offers great flexibility in reducing unit costs in a targeted way, for example through the individual combination of different drive concepts. We can help you find the most efficient solution.

Process integration
ARBURG offers you full system technology, know-how, consulting and service from a single source. We support you with the integration of upstream and downstream steps in the injection moulding process. Automation and process integration can be used to create fully functional components and to exploit potential savings.

Process control
Process control is one of our core areas of expertise. The central SELOGICA control system can be used to optimise your production processes on a daily basis. Reduce energy requirements and cycle times, e.g. by integrating all peripherals and synchronising movement sequences.

Production planning
The formula for success in global competition is to produce flexibly, quickly, in high quality and at low cost. The ARBURG host computer system is a valuable tool for this purpose: with ALS, you can effectively organise your production, minimise setup and downtimes and make optimal use of resources.
