Source:Adsale Plastics Network 2023-07-24

From 17- 21 October 2023, Arburg will have its show presence under the theme of “There is only a Plan A” at Fakuma in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Among the nine exhibits at the company stand, the absolute highlight will be the premiere of the Allrounder 520 H injection molding machine, which is the second machine size with new hybrid machine technology.


Also new is the “arburgSOLUTIONworld” in which trade fair visitors will find out how they can save energy and increase efficiency in their operations, as well as compensate for the shortage of skilled workers.


In addition to the exhibits at Arburg’s stand, another ten machines will be giving live demonstrations at partner stands.


New sizes for the milestone machine


After presenting the Allrounder 470 H milestone machine earlier this year, Arburg is now taking the next step towards a hybrid Hidrive series with new machine technology.


Starting at Fakuma 2023, sizes 520 and 570 will be available. The machines combine an energy-efficient and precise electric clamping unit with a powerful and dynamic hydraulic injection unit. They are also available in the Comfort, Premium, and Ultimate performance variants.


At the company stand, an Allrounder 520 H Premium will use a 1+1+1-cavity mold to produce an Allrounder machine base from ABS to a scale of 1:18. The “Moldlife Sense” computer system from Hack enables the mold to be monitored over its entire life cycle. It can also communicate with the machine and mold via an OPC UA interface.

arburgSOLUTIONworld the new exhibition space


Among the features of the new interactive exhibition space arburgSOLUTIONworld that built around a four-meter-high LED column will be Arburg's “Action Plan: Energy”, including energy advice, machine updates and consumption measurements to help customers save resources and energy.


The Arburg host computer system ALS will be used to demonstrate how high quality standards can be maintained despite enormous price and cost pressures. Visitors can also learn how to use digital services, such as the arburgXworld customer portal and smart assistance functions from the Gestica control system, to overcome the shortage of skilled workers.

Arburg's “Plan A” includes the deliverables for sustainability, digitalization, automation and energy efficiency.


Processing of recyclates, digitalization and automation


Moreover, an Allrounder Golden Electric 470 E with a Yaskawa six-axis robot will be demonstrating how post-consumer recyclate (PCR) can be reliably processed to manufacture toy dolphins.


Tool cases in the Arburg design will be produced using components made from Leonhard Kurz's Recopound material, which is obtained from post-industrial recyclate (PIR) on the basis of PET films. An ISCC mass-balanced material from Covestro will also be used. The coveted give-away will be produced on a turnkey system based around a hybrid Allrounder 920 H with a clamping force of 5,000 kN.


In addition, a turnkey system with a vertical Allrounder 375 V and a six-axis robot mounted in a space-saving hanging position will be producing ready-to-use bicycle tool, a tyre lever. The Arburg Turnkey Control Module (ATCM) Scada system and Invisible Tracing from Detagto allow each product to be clearly traced and identified.


Automation solutions from simple part removal with linear Multilift robotic systems to complex handling with Yaskawa and Kuka six-axis robots will be showcased at Arburg's stand as well.


Industrial additive manufacturing


For industrial additive manufacturing, a high-temperature Freeformer 750-3X will be producing air diffusers from Ultem, original aerospace-approved plastic granules. The Freeformer 750-3X is Arburg's largest yet compact 3D printer.


An innovatiQ LiQ printer for processing liquid silicone rubber (LSR) will also be presented from the ARBURGadditive division.
