Arburg presents product highlights in Brno
From 15 to 19 September, Arburg will exhibit a representative selection from its current product range at the International Engineering Fair 2008 in Brno. At the Arburg exhibition stand No. 66 in Hall G1, trade visitors will find the energy-efficient electric Allrounder 570 A running a high-speed in-mould labelling application, the new vertical Allrounder 375 V machine and a large Allrounder 720 S Golden Edition to represent both the successful Golden Edition series and the large Arburg machines.
"For us, the International Engineering Fair in Brno is always the most important trade fair of the year," says Jaroslav Novak, Manager of Arburg's Czech subsidiary. The success of this traditional trade fair also reflects the fact that it is already celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2008.
In accordance with the significance of the International Engineering Fair, Arburg will present a number of highlights and innovations within its product range with three exhibits.
Allrounder A for fast, precise and energy-efficient production These also include the electric Allrounder 570 A, which will demonstrate an IML application at the International Engineering Fair: Six high-quality, labelled yoghurt pots will be produced in an overall cycle time of four seconds. In order to meet the requirements with regard to material preparation and speed, the Allrounder 570 A with a clamping force of 1,000 kN is equipped with integrated, adaptive hot runner control, a high-performance plasticising cylinder and a mould featuring a pneumatic needle shut-off system. The complete IML automation equipment - feed, separation and placement of the labels, as well as removal and cavity-specific stacking of the pots - will be provided by Waldorf Technik. With this complete system, Arburg impressively demonstrates how IML products can be produced rapidly, reliably and in high quality, as well as in large volumes.
"With this exhibit, we will present both our high-performance capabilities in the field of electric machines and our project and automation competence to the local market," summarises Jaroslav Novak. "We are thereby precisely covering the currently topical issues within our plastics industry."
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 in 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 all the other Arburg technology using as little energy as possible. Rather, the company seeks to use its products and expertise in order to efficiently minimise energy consumption among its customers as well.
Vertical Allrounder V - flexible due to free-space system
"Because the encapsulation of inserts offers a great deal of potential for Czech injection moulding companies, we will be presenting the new, largest machine in the Allrounder V series in Brno," explains the subsidiary manager with regard to the second exhibition machine. The hydraulic Allrounder V vertical machines are characterised by their fixed vertical, down-stroking clamping units, designed as a free-space system. These machines are predestined for the encapsulation of inserts, which will be demonstrated in Brno on the new Allrounder 375 V with a clamping force of 500 kN and a size 290 injection unit. With the market introduction of this machine in the spring of 2008, this machine series now covers a clamping force range from 125 to 500 kN. The injection units of the vertical machines can be arranged flexibly in the vertical or horizontal position, providing the options of injecting either centrally or into the parting line. The height of the parting line can be varied slightly using a lifting device. Due to the low table heights, these Allrounders are extremely well suited for the manual insertion and removal of moulded parts. Rotary and sliding tables supplied as optional equipment for the machines enable the encapsulation process to be automated and consequently reduce removal and insertion times to a minimum.
Economical Allrounder Golden Edition
"With the Allrounder 720 S Golden Edition, we will on the one hand be presenting our successful hydraulic Golden-Edition machine series. On the other, we will show that the Arburg range also features large machines," says Jaroslav Novak.
The economical Allrounder Golden Edition machines combine state-of-the-art machine technology with an attractive price/performance ratio. The machine series now consists of a carefully thought-out range of nine Allrounders for various applications, each machine being equipped with fixed clamping force/injection unit combinations. The horizontal Allrounder Golden Edition machines cover a clamping force range from 400 to 4,600 kN, whereby the maximum shot weight is 1,286 g of PS. The two Allrounder 1200 T Golden Edition vertical rotary table machines feature a table diameter of 1,200 millimetres and clamping forces of 800 and 1,000 kN.
