Technical injection molding

With our injection molding technology you can produce high-precision, complex technical components – always at competitive unit costs. In order to precisely meet your requirements we enhance existing or develop completely new processes, mold concepts and machines on an ongoing basis.

Fiber direct compounding (FDC), for example, makes it possible to produce lightweight components cost effectively in high volumes. As a result, other materials can be substituted more easily and materials can be combined more efficiently.

Highlights

  • All from a single source: consulting, conception and commissioning of customized production systems by ARBURG
  • Wide variety of processes and process combinations, such as multi-component, assembly, micro and powder injection molding
  • Inline integration of various processes such as extrusion, PUR seal foaming or digital printing
  • SELOGICA and GESTICA: flexible control of the entire machine, including integrated automation and peripheral equipment

Application examples

Tension strap
Practical for Industry 4.0: The example of elastic tension straps clearly illustrates how part variants can be produced in high volumes in a cost-effective way. Due to the clever product and mold design, a flexible turnkey solution as well as direct process control, the products are produced individually on a shot-to-shot basis.

Wristwatch
Watch production reimagined: The example of the LSR/LSR wristwatch illustrates the innovative concepts that emerge based on our overarching expertise. Combining multi-component injection molding, silicone processing, and automation makes it possible to produce two complete watches in one minute.

Micro counter wheel
Precision small parts, such as micro counter wheels weighing only 0.004 g, can be produced to a high standard on optimized ARBURG standard machines. A special micro-production cell enables us to offer you an efficient solution for shot weights measured in milligrams.

Soccer boot sole
Modern soccer boots are made almost entirely from plastic. Their high-end functional components influence e.g. the speed and shooting technique of the soccer player. With this product, short product life cycles require future-proof know-how and a high level of flexibility in production.

Toothbrushes
Twelve toothbrushes per cycle are produced as a hard/soft combination using the two-component process. The molded part carriers of the continuously rotating paternoster mold roll from station to station via two servo-electric drives. The cycle time is 20 seconds.
