Digitalized and automated injection molding technology

At Plastpol 2019 in Kielce (Poland), to be held from 28 to 31 May 2019, ARBURG will present digital products for efficient injection molding as well as turnkey and automation solutions in hall E, stand E30.

Competent partner in Poland
"Plastpol is the central meeting point for the plastics industry in Central and Eastern Europe, and we have maintained a very successful presence here for decades", explains Sławomir Śniady, Managing Director of ARBURG Polska Sp. z o. "As a pioneer in digitalization and a competent partner for turnkey solutions, we are joining our customers on the journey into the digital future of plastics processing and will be presenting practical solutions and applications in Kielce."

Key Industry 4.0 component: ARBURG host computer system (ALS)
As a central component of Industry 4.0, the ARBURG ALS host computer system enables online data exchange across production facilities and locations (horizontal integration) as well as with a PPC/ERP system (vertical integration). At Plastpol, both exhibits are networked via ALS. ARBURG experts will demonstrate on a monitor how all relevant production and quality data can be recorded and archived, and how continuous traceability of orders, batches or individual parts is possible.

Turnkey system: Tension straps manufactured on demand
As a practical example of Industry 4.0, a turnkey system with a vertical ALLROUNDER 375 V will demonstrate how customer requirements can be integrated into the running injection molding process online. At Plastpol, visitors can choose between tension straps of different lengths, colors and end piece combinations and can enter the variant of their choice directly at the terminal. The order is then transferred to the central SELOGICA control system via the OPC UA communication protocol. The turnkey system produces the tension straps "on demand" on a flexible shot-to-shot basis – with no need for conversions, thanks to a clever product and mold design and Industry 4.0 components. In industrial practice, such an application is ideal for cable assembly in the automotive industry, for example.

GOLDEN ELECTRIC: Automated production of cable ties
An Allrounder 570 E Golden Electric with 2,000 kN of clamping force will produce PP cable ties on an 8-cavity mold in a cycle time of around 20 seconds. The injection molding machine features compact automation with a MULTILIFT SELECT. The linear robotic system integrated in the SELOGICA control system removes the molded parts from the mold and sets them down on a conveyor belt.
