Arburg presents itself at the Plastimagen

Mexican subsidiary's first public appearance / Allrounders to show medical technology and in-mould labelling applications

(PresseBox) ( Lossburg, )
Arburg will present itself in two senses of the word at the Plastimagen, which will be held in Mexico City from 8 to 11 April 2008. On the one hand, Arburg’s new Mexico subsidiary will celebrate its debut. On the other, trade visitors will be able to gain an impression of the high performance of Arburg’s products. At the Arburg exhibition stand, No. 300, a hydraulic Allrounder 470 C Golden Edition will produce a moulded part for the medical technology sector. Moreover, Wittmann will present an electric Allrounder 570 A running an IML application at their exhibition stand.

Customer support further expanded in Mexico

"For us, the Plastimagen is the perfect forum for presenting our new subsidiary, our strategy for the Mexican market and our product range," says Arburg Managing Director Sales, Helmut Heinson. "With our own organisation in Mexico, we are continuing the good work of our former trading partner IPLYH and are further enhancing our presence and customer proximity, as well as our range of services." In Guillermo Fasterling, Arburg has found a subsidiary manager with a wealth of experience in the injection moulding sector. He will be provided sales support by the IPLYH Director Juan Carlos Lachica. "This solution reflects the continuity and the customer-orientation for which Arburg is known around the world," says Helmut Heinson.

The subsidiary’s comprehensive service offerings include highly-qualified service technicians who work on-site, a well-equipped spare-parts store ensuring rapid availability, a training room and a presentation room in which Arburg products can be demonstrated and tested, and where customers can be provided comprehensive training and support.

Allrounder Golden Edition with medical technology application

From the comprehensive Allrounder range, a representative of the successful hydraulic Allrounder Golden Edition machine series will be shown in Mexico. These machines feature fixed clamping force/injection unit combinations and offer technologically-superior standard equipment. This includes a highly wear-resistant plasticising cylinder, fast-switching valve technology and the Selogica "direct" control system with touchscreen. The Allrounder Golden Edition is also characterised by an extremely attractive price and, like all Arburg machines, it is produced exclusively at the Lossburg parent factory.

The exhibit at the Plastimagen is an Allrounder 470 C Golden Edition with a clamping force of 1,500 kN and a size 400 injection unit. Equipped with a 24-cavity mould made by Schöttli, so-called overcaps for use in the medical technology sector are produced. The cycle time of this application is approximately seven seconds.

Electric Allrounder at the Wittmann stand

During the Plastimagen, an electric Allrounder A will also be on show running an IML application at the Wittmann exhibition stand. A cup featuring a label will be produced in a cycle time of only 2.8 seconds using a two-cavity mould. In this complex cell, all the automation elements will be integrated around an Allrounder 570 A which, at 2,000 kN and with an 800 injection unit, is currently the largest electric injection moulding machine in the Arburg machine range. The entire IML automation process has been adapted and optimised by Wittmann. It provides the labels for the cups, separates, transfers and places them in the mould, removes them and, finally, stacks the finished items on a conveyor belt according to cavity.
