Allrounder 920 H
Arburg will be present at Fakuma 2023 with nine exhibits on Stand 3101 in Hall A3, plus ten additional machines on partner stands. In a live demonstration, a hybrid Allrounder 920 H with a clamping force of 5,000 kN will produce the main components of the much sought-after toolbox in the Arburg design. The turnkey system also includes a Scara robot integrated into the machine controller, a Multilift V linear robot system and an innovative tool carrier facility. The high-quality plastic product will be completed by hand and the stylish toolbox handed out to the trade fair visitors.
Turnkey Systems for LSR Optics of LED Headlights
Working hand in hand with DOW, ELMET has fine-tuned the manufacturing technology for the main optics of LED headlights with ADB (Adaptive Driving Beam) functionality to suit it for use with a grade of LSR specifically developed for optical applications. Consistently high part quality is ensured by a combination of ELMET’s high-precision SMARTmix TOP 7000P dosing system with the mold’s SMARTshot E cold runner system, in which the needle is positioned servo-electrically when the nozzles open and close.
Advanced masterbatch technology
At Fakuma 2023, Tosaf will be presenting their latest developments in masterbatches for applications ranging from agricultural films to rigid and soft packaging and technical parts on stand B4-4402 in hall B4. For example, Tosaf's new additives for contour-sharp laser marking are also suitable for transparent plastics in a wide range of applications. Also in focus are a new masterbatch carrier system with approval for direct food contact as well as masterbatches to produce light-diffusing elements, for example for covers of LED lights. Adapted to growing sustainability requirements are blowing agents for foamed plastics that help to reduce the ecological footprint, as well as colour and functional masterbatch solutions for compounds containing recycled materials.
Uncertainty, inflation, low demand
Uncertainty, inflation, low demand – the signs are not good. For more than three and a half years, the European plastics industry has had little reason to remain optimistic. Anyone who thought stability would return after the pandemic was clearly wrong. The impact of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine is being felt, even though it’s not as hot a topic for the media as it was a year ago. To gauge how business is developing in the European plastics industry, PIE conducted its 10th Market Survey. The questionnaire was made open to PIE subscribers and other industry players and attracted almost 200 participants from across Europe.
Servo-automated injection mold tools
At Fakuma 2023, Servomold, a leading specialist in the automation of injection mold tools, will present a new generation of control units for servo drives and a newly developed series of actuators for the execution of linear movements at booth A2-2111 in hall A2.
Highlights Fakuma 2023
At the upcoming Fakuma fair, Promix Solutions will be presenting solutions for mixing, foaming and cooling of polymer melts in Hall A2, booth 2105. The focus is on saving raw material costs, reducing the carbon footprint and increasing production capacity. Find out how Promix Microcell Technology can help you save 20 % on raw material costs in extrusion processes and reduce your company's CO2 footprint. For manufacturers of light foams such as XPS, XPP, XPE, XPET, Promix will show how P1 cooling mix technology can be used to achieve better mechanical properties and lower foam densities. Promix displays clever solutions for efficient cooling or tempering of viscous media and for inline viscosity measurement. Thanks to further optimized mixing nozzle technology, it is even easier to save costs and improve processes in injection molding.
Sealing height of 0 mm? Yes, it's possible!
Faster, easier and more secure: When it comes to the automated and highly efficient packaging of very flat or light products in film pouches, MULTIVAC has modified its B 625 chamber belt machine in such a way, that a sealing height of 0 mm is now possible on this proven model, which is designed to pack large batches of product.
Sustainable packaging concepts for the food industry
SÜDPACK will be taking part in PACK EXPO, the international packaging trade show, once again this year. From September 11 to 13, the film manufacturer will be presenting its entire portfolio – this time in Las Vegas – of both conven-tional and sustainable high-performance films and packaging concepts for the food industry on the 640 square feet of booth SL-5972. In addition, at the ex-hibition booth of PPi Technologies, the US representative of SN Maschinenbau, film made by SÜDPACK will be processed into stand-up pouches with zipper reclosure on an SN horizontal pouch packaging machine.
100th Allrounder for H&K Müller
This year, more than 50 years of cooperation between H&K Müller GmbH & Co. KG and Arburg were crowned by the delivery of the company's 100th machine. The hydraulic Allrounder 420 C Golden Edition is equipped with a Multilift Select handling device and produces screw-top cans as well as measuring and dosing spoons for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food sectors.
