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.
Tailwind for even more clean energy
Nature offers sun and wind in abundance and with it, endless possibilities for generating electricity from free resources. Arburg has been doing this for a long time and has now intelligently expanded its sources of clean energy once again. Two wind turbines that have already been in operation since 2001 have been producing electricity for the company's own use since the end of January 2023.
Solutions for the meta topics of energy
At Fakuma in Friedrichshafen, Germany, from 17 to 21 October 2023, Arburg will be showcasing its exceptional ability to deliver solutions in plastics processing. “There is only a Plan A” will show how more sustainability, digitalisation and automation can be realised in the plastics world. One highlight will be the premiere of the Allrounder 520 H, which is the second machine size with new hybrid machine technology to be presented by Arburg this year. In the “arburgSOLUTIONworld”, which is also new, visitors to the fair will find out how they can save energy and increase efficiency in their operations, as well as compensate for the shortage of skilled workers. Nine exhibits on the company's own stand in Hall A3 and another ten machines on partner stands will also be giving live demonstrations of exciting applications, processes and trends in injection moulding and 3D printing.
Energy-efficient injection moulding
The MSV International Engineering Fair in Brno, Czechia, is considered the most important industry exhibition in East-Central Europe. From 10 to 13 October 2023, Arburg will be there in Hall G1, Stand 28, with its usual mix of innovative and future-oriented exhibits. An Allrounder 470 H will be producing "grab and go" products live, in the form of 0.5-litre beer mugs made of PC. Sophisticated automation will be demonstrated by a Kuka six-axis robot that the turnkey experts from Arburg Czechia have programmed to assemble a model Allrounder fully automatically.
Arburg banks on growing willingness to invest
Arburg's expectations in Italy for the second half of the year are based on an increase in industrial production and rising investment. Arburg is responding to buyers' desire to save energy and the country's increased need for sustainability with its presence at Plast 2023 in Milan (stand C/D 61/62 in Hall 22). From 5 to 8 September Arburg will show the full range of technologies and will also present an interesting cooperation with Sverital in the field of silicone processing.
A stroke of genius: hybrid drive system
Electric drives are becoming increasingly important in injection moulding, particularly with regard to energy efficiency. However, hydraulic drives are not without their advantages, providing powerful injection capacities and cost efficiency. The ideal solution is to combine both drive systems, as the Allrounders from Arburg’s new generation of machines successfully demonstrate: the Allrounder 470 H anniversary machine is characterised by low acquisition and operating costs, a reduced carbon footprint and an energy requirement equivalent to that of electric machines.
2-component injection moulding of Luer connectors
At the Interplas in Birmingham from 26 to 28 September 2023, Arburg (Stand H4/Hall 4) will be exhibiting an efficient production cell that produces Luer connectors made of PP and TPE for the pharmaceutical industry. The centrepiece is a two-component Allrounder More 1600 injection moulding machine, handled by a Yaskawa six-axis robot. Closures are capped and threads unscrewed directly in the mould. The innovative high-end solution eliminates the need for a second mould and additional assembly line. This significantly reduces the manufacturing costs.
Energy advice and other measures reduce costs
Cost-effectiveness and efficiency have always been Arburg's guiding principles. Due to the huge price increases, the topic of energy in particular has rapidly gained in importance throughout Europe. This is one of the reasons why the machine manufacturer from Lossburg, Germany, launched its "Action Plan: Energy" in March 2023. The plan is based on individual energy consultations including energy measurements at the customer's premises. It highlights many specific options for optimising energy requirements throughout the entire production process, thereby significantly reducing costs in injection moulding production.
Arburg Innovation Hub
Arburg is a globally leading and thriving manufacturer of machines for plastics processing and is also a pioneer in the industry when it comes to digitalisation. What many people don't know is that this innovative family-owned company with its headquarters in Lossburg, in the northern Black Forest, also develops the hardware and software for its control systems itself and is a renowned manufacturer in Germany in this field. In order to attract more IT and software experts in the future, Arburg opened a new location in Karlsruhe this year, the "Innovation Hub".
