On September 29, a high-ranking delegation from Eppendorf Polymers visited Arburg headquarters in Lossburg, Germany, to celebrate the acquisition of their 100th Allrounder machine.

The company is part of Eppendorf AG and produces around 2.5 billion disposable plastic items for laboratory use each year. The new, two-component Allrounder with the Multilift V Robot system is intended for the manufacture of microliter plates for use in the medical sector.

Eppendorf and Arburg have been cooperating together since 1960. The first Arburg machine was one of the legendary C4b series and was used in the first injection molding trials for the production of pipette tips and test tubes at Eppendorf's headquarters in Hamburg, Germany.

The Eppendorf Polymere company now specializes in plastics production. Its machine fleet comprises 70 injection molding machines, 60 of which are Allrounders with clamping forces of between 500-2,000kN.

A 20-strong delegation from Eppendorf Polymere, including the two Managing Directors Rainer David and Dr. Thomas Reimann, as well as the management team from the Oldenburg plant, took the opportunity afforded by a management meeting held near Lossburg to pay a visit to Arburg.

The highlight here was the handover of the 100th Allrounder by Arburg's Managing Director Sales Gerhard Böhm. This was celebrated with a champagne reception held next to the milestone machine, a two-component Allrounder 570 S with Multilift V robotic system.

"This event is a milestone in the long-standing, successful and close cooperation between our two companies," said Rainer David, Managing Director of Eppendorf Polymere. "Our plan is to use the milestone machine to manufacture medical microliter plates."

This is Eppendorf's sixth hydraulic two-component Allrounder. All of these machines have the second injection unit mounted "piggyback-style" at a 45° angle.

A successive changeover to electrical and hybrid Allrounders for the production of single-component parts began in 2009. "This enabled us to reduce cycle times by up to 15%, which led to a significant increase in production efficiency with our high-speed applications," explained David.

Several Allrounders operate with a Multilift robotic system and a number of turnkey systems with downstream processing are also in operation at Eppendorf.
