Source:Adsale Plastics Network 2023-05-19

At CHINAPLAS 2023, Arburg will present two important, pioneering innovations, the Flexlift, a robotic system specially designed for the Asian market, and the new hybrid Allrounder 470 H, which Arburg is launching to mark its 100th anniversary.


Furthermore, the 400 square meter Arburg stand will feature the two key topics of digitalization and sustainability, as well as an Allrounder 1600 T rotary table machine, an Allrounder 370 H and a Freeformer 300-3X for industrial additive manufacturing.


"The Chinese market is the largest for injection molding in Asia. The demand for high-end solutions is growing very rapidly and we can offer excellent, market-adapted solutions with our know-how," commented Zhao Tong, Managing Director Arburg China. "We have a particular focus here on turnkey applications with post-injection assembly for the large-scale productions of our customers from the medical, mobility and electronics sectors."


Premieres: Milestone machine Allrounder 470 H and Flexlift robotic system


"Highlights of the trade fair presentation are, of course, the anniversary '100 years of the Hehl family company' and the new Allrounder 470 H that Arburg has launched to mark the occasion," emphasized Zhao Tong. "With this exhibit, we are even celebrating two premieres: that of the milestone machine and that of the Flexlift robotic system, which was specially developed for the Asian market and is also only available there."


The new Allrounder 470 H saves energy and conserves resources.

The Allrounders 470 H milestone machine is available in Comfort and Premium performance variants. The focus of these new developments was on increasing efficiency, optimizing the energy footprint and reducing the cycle time.


Highlights include the new oil management concept, throughput splitting enabling simultaneous movements of the axes, servo hydraulics and the high level of user-friendliness in day-to-day operation thanks to optimized connections and interfaces.


Turnkey system for medical technology


At CHINAPLAS 2023, the anniversary machine Allrounder 470 H Comfort will produce adapters for the medical market using PC, in a three-platen mold with 2+2 cavities. The cycle time is 25 seconds. The molded parts are removed by the Flexlift 10+2 double-arm robot, the main arm can handle a payload of ten kilograms, while its second arm can lift loads weighing two kilograms.


The entire turnkey system that also has an integrated camera test and a sample part drawer for quality assurance purposes, was designed, built and commissioned in the Arburg Technology Factory Pinghu in China.


The Flexlift robotic system was specially developed for the Asian market and is also only available there.

The gripper component of the Flexlift was also manufactured there in an additive manufacturing process on a Freeformer 300-3x. A live demonstration of the Freeformer at the trade fair will show how to manufacture a hard-soft compound from PC/ABS and TPU for grippers.


Digital and sustainable into the future


Besides machine technology, Arburg is also well prepared for future requirements in the areas of digitalization and sustainability. Two digital terminals with the Arburg host computer system ALS and the functions of the arburgXworld digital customer portal will be on display.


The customer portal “arburgXworld” links customers with Arburg.

Two additional info points will provide more information on the arburgGREENworld programme for the circular economy, carbon footprint and resource conservation, as well as on Arburg services.


Automated Allrounder 370 H for fast cycles


Of particular interest to trade visitors from the electronics industry is the Allrounder 370 H Ultimate with Gestica controller, 600 kN clamping force and size 290 injection unit: with a fast cycle time of just seven seconds and a 16-cavity injection mold, the exhibit produces relay sockets from a 30% glass-fiber-filled PBT.


The Flexlift 5 with a payload of five kilograms removes the sprue and the molded parts, which are then deposited separately downstream according to cavities.


Allrounder 1600 T: Six-axis robot at work


Finally, the company expects that the Allrounder 1600 T with 2,000 kN clamping force and size 170 injection unit is likely to attract the attention of customers from the mobility sector.


Supported by a Kuka six-axis robot with a load capacity of ten kilograms, fluid connections and connecting parts are produced from polyamide 6 with 35% glass fiber content (PA6 GF 35) and metal inserts.


The products are produced in a 4-cavity mold in a cycle time of around 40 seconds. This automated turnkey system was customized to include a punching unit with punching strip conveyor and a PIN removal system. The Kuka six-axis robot was also implemented at the Arburg Technology Factory Pinghu.
