Successful Technology Days 2024

Around 5,500 enthusiastic customers from 41 countries attended the ARBURG Technology Days at the "Think Tank" in Lossburg from 13 to 16 March 2024. The event showcased everything that makes plastics hearts beat faster. Over 40 exhibits demonstrated the enormous variety of applications in plastics processing, including numerous innovations.


Anyone looking for an entry-level hydraulic machine with an extremely attractive price/performance ratio, proven high performance and significantly reduced energy requirements will be surprised by an interesting innovation: with immediate effect, all hydraulic ALLROUNDER GOLDEN EDITION machines in sizes 420 to 570 are optionally available with dual-circuit pump technology with ARBURG servo-hydraulics (ASH). Thanks to energy-optimised and speed-controlled servomotors, the specific energy requirement can be reduced by up to 50 percent depending on the process.

arburgSOLUTIONworld: Comprehensive advice and solutions

At arburgSOLUTIONworld, visitors were able to find out which levers can be used to increase efficiency and reduce costs in their own injection moulding production. At six stations around a striking LED column, visitors were able to obtain individual advice and learn more, for example, about the "Action Plan: Energy", the ALS host computer system, the arburgXworld customer portal that can be networked with it and the GESTICA control system with its intelligent assistance and pilot functions. The exciting keynote speech "Enabling your future - smart and system-orientated solutions" by the two Managing Directors Gerhard Böhm and Guido Frohnhaus was also met with great interest. Over 300 guests attended the three keynote speeches followed by a panel discussion.

Plastics processing you can touch

In total, over 40 exhibits produced injection-moulded and 3D-printed components at the Technology Days. Numerous new products, exciting applications and innovative processes were on display. Application highlights included the new Mantara lightweight construction process, individualised film technology and several examples of sophisticated LSR processing. No less interesting are, for example, the production of medical products from bio-based materials in cleanrooms and the reliable processing of recyclates into durable products.

“30 years of Automation + Turnkey”

In addition to machine technology, ARBURG has been offering its own automation and turnkey solutions for exactly 30 years, and a number of current customer projects related to this were once again on display at the Technology Days 2024.

3D-printed operating equipment and fibre-reinforced components

With freeformers and 3D printers from the TiQ and LiQ series, ARBURGadditive offers a suitable solution for practically every requirement. At the Technology Days 2024, visitors were shown the additive manufacturing of carbon fibre-reinforced components made of PPS with a TiQ 2 and the processing of LSR with an LiQ 5, for example, alongside high-temperature applications and multi-material combinations with the freeformer 750-3X. The additive manufacturing of spare parts, grippers and operating equipment based on 3D scans is of particular interest to injection moulding plants.
