ARBURG at the MSV 2016

Automated ALLROUNDER GOLDEN ELECTRIC

18.08.2016
The MSV show opens its doors to trade visitors in Brno from 3 to 7 October 2016. ARBURG is showing a production cell built around an electric ALLROUNDER from the new GOLDEN ELECTRIC series, complete with a six-axis robot on Stand 36 in Hall G1.

Expanded capacity
“We command a very strong position in the Czech and Slovak markets. Hence the MSV show is particularly important for us,” explains Dr. Daniel Orel, Managing Director of the ARBURG subsidiary in the Czech Republic. Automation business continues to grow. Capacities at ARBURG's Czech subsidiary have thus increased in recent years through the construction of an assembly hall for turnkey systems and the expansion of a project team.

New electric general purpose series
“The new GOLDEN ELECTRIC series is the perfect fit for our market,” says Dr. Daniel Orel. It features proven, high-quality ARBURG technology “Made in Germany” at an attractive price/performance ratio. This is made possible through standardized components, such as a fixed combination of distance between tie-bars, clamping force, and injection unit size. The electric machines are available in four sizes with clamping forces from 600 to 2,000 kN. In Brno, an ALLROUNDER 520 E GOLDEN ELECTRIC with a clamping force of 1,500 kN will use a single cavity mold from Czech mold manufacturer TVAR to produce a food storage container out of PP. The molded part will weigh 72 grams and the cycle time will be around 22 seconds.

Precisely coordinated automation
The exhibit will be supplemented with a robot cell with a six-axis robot from Kuka, which removes the finished parts from the mold, closes them, and sets them down in a magazine for further processing. The gripper, parts magazine, and housing of the entire production cell have been precisely tailored to the production task by the automation specialists at ARBURG's Czech subsidiary.
