A vertical ALLROUNDER 1200 T rotary table machine with a clamping force of 112 tons will demonstrate the automatic encapsulation of inserts at the Moldplás trade show. The exhibit encapsulates four metal inserts with PP to produce bottle openers in a cycle time of around 30 seconds. Part handling is performed by a six-axis robot mounted on the machine table. Arburg implemented the production cell in cooperation with its Portuguese automation partner, Fluidotronica.
