At Fakuma 2017, Arburg announced the launching sales of its biggest injection molding machine, the Allrounder 1120 H with a clamping force of 6,500kN.

The German injection molding machines powerhouse has also brought to the show a machine of the same new design and GESTICA control system – the Allrounder 920 H with a clamping force of 5,000kN.

Michael Hehl, Manager Partner and Spokesperson for the Management Team of Arburg, said the company is gradually transferring the functions of its SELOGICA system to GESTICA.

GESTICA is designed to have a look and feel that is reminiscent of smart mobile devices, so that operating gestures can be used, for example, to make operation more intuitive and efficient.

"Customers who require extensive or complex special functions for their machine in the new design, we can offer the SELOGICA in the GESTICA "outfit" as a transitional solution," said Hehl.

Business wise, Hehl revealed that turnover of Arburg is expected to reach record level again, topping the previous high of €636 million set one year ago, and break the record for the fourth year in succession.

"For some time now, we have been witnessing a lot of potential in the packaging industry and in medical technology. There is increasing demand in the fields of personal care, diagnostics and preventive healthcare, in particular, and therefore for eHealth and fitness monitoring products, for example," elaborated Gerhard Böhm, Arburg's Managing Director of Sales.

Automotive remains its largest market, with a major focus on lightweight construction, said Böhm. "In our Customer Center, seven machines are equipped for lightweight construction processes alone. The range includes Fiber Direct Compounding (FDC) as well as the foaming processes ProFoam and MuCell."

The company is also engaged in various high-ranking research projects, he said, for example the production of efficient lightweight engines for electric vehicles, in which the innovative injection molding technology plays a vital role.

The US remains Arburg's largest international market, and at the upcoming NPE, which will take place in Orlando, the US from May 7-11, 2018, Böhm noted that the company will occupy an area of 900sqm, nearly 40% larger than its stand in the previous edition in 2015.

China is the second largest overseas market after the US, and due to the fact that CHINAPLAS 2018 will move to a bigger venue, the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai, Arburg will be expanding its area by a factor of 2.5 to 600sqm.

Opportunities are also popping up in new sales markets like Iran and Vietnam, and even in established markets such as Russia and Brazil are coming back, according to Böhm. "in summary, I can say that the underlying economic conditions for positive growth continue to look good for both us and our customers!"
