ARBURG at the Interplastica 2019

Expertise in multi-component injection molding

At the Interplastica 2019 in Moscow (Russia) ARBURG will present a complex multi-component injection molding application at stand 21B25 in hall 02 from January 29 to February 1, 2019.

Part in a hard/soft combination
A two-component ALLROUNDER 570 S with a clamping force of 247 tons will produce ice scrapers weighing 80 g. First, the machine produces the pre-molded part from ABS using the horizontally arranged 8.2 oz injection unit. The 1+1-cavity mold supplied by Polarform is then rotated through 180 degrees via a servo-electric index unit. Finally, the TPE component is injected via a vertical 3.7 oz injection unit. In this manner, a ready-to-use ice scraper with a soft blade is produced in a cycle time of around 40 seconds.
