Arburg presents a high-performance machine at the Arabplast
Medical application on energy-efficient electric Allrounder 570 A / 48 barrels
"The Arabian market is a growth region in which Arburg would like to position itself even more strongly in future," explains Helmut Heinson, Managing Director Sales at Arburg . And this is why, for the first time, the company will have its own exhibition stand at the Arabplast in 2009. Arburg will present the precise production of medical parts with a high degree of reproducibility. "With this high-tech application, we are demonstrating the performance of our Allrounders in Dubai in a most impressive way," claims Helmut Heinson, Arburg's Managing Director Sales.
The Allrounder 570 A high-performance machine
The electric Allrounder 570 A will produce 48 barrels made from polypropylene. The part weight is 3.23 grams and the cycle time is twelve seconds. In order to meet requirements in terms of material preparation and throughput, the Allrounder 570 A with a clamping force of 2,000 kN is equipped with a high-performance plasticising cylinder. With this exhibit, Arburg impressively demonstrates how medical parts can be produced precisely in high quality and with a high degree of reproducibility.
Energy Efficiency Allround
As an energy-efficient machine, the Allrounder 570 A bears the Arburg "e²" energy efficiency label. This is one of the measures which Arburg has initiated within the context of its corporate objective, "Energy Efficiency Allround". In terms of the efficient use of energy, the goal is not simply to produce the Allrounders and the entire Arburg technology using as little energy as possible. Rather, the company also seeks to use its products and expertise in order to efficiently minimise energy consumption among its customers.
