The dowels of the "Greenline" product series consist of 50 per cent renewable raw materials based on castor oil.
The sprue is discharged directly into a mill. The post-industrial recyclate (PIR) is returned directly back into the process as reground material.
GESTICA control system: Digital assistance functions such as the "aXw Control RecyclatePilot" compensate for fluctuating material qualities.
ARBURG solutions used
ALLROUNDER 370 A
An electric ALLROUNDER 370 A produces four "Greenline" dowels made of an alternative PA6.10 based on castor oil in a cycle time of around 20 s.
A MULTILIFT SELECT removes the moulded part from the mould, ejects the sprue into a mill for returning to the process and deposits the dowels on a conveyor belt.
The ARBURG recyclate package consists of hardware and software. A modified cylinder module and wear-resistant screw is also suitable for poorly flowing and abrasive materials.
Functions of the GESTICA control system compensate for material fluctuations of recyclates. The PressurePilot, for example, regulates the pressure in a bionically optimised way, while the RecyclatePilot ensures a stable shot weight using adaptive process control.
