Arburg Hungary’s Juniális event highlights automation and Industry 4.0
More than 90 guests attended the Juniális event in Budapest on June 14, in which Arburg’s Hungary subsidiary presented on the subjects of automation and Industry 4.0.
“The Juniális 2016 was a great success for us in quality as well as in quantity,” summed up Stephan Doehler, European Sales Director and responsible for Arburg Hungary. “The participants were highly interested in our turnkey business and the Arburg host computer system and learned about the present state of Industry 4.0 in the plastics industry .”
“Industrie 4.0 – powered by Arburg” was the title of the specialist presentation held by Balazs Domokos from the Hungarian subsidiary. He explained how market requirements are changing and how Arburg is developing into a supplier of flexible production systems for IT-networked production in the “smart factory”.
Peter Mező went into further detail on which individual solutions Arburg offers in automation and in the turnkey business: from consulting and project planning, implementation and installation, through to service for the complete production cells.
Arburg also presented its standardized control system philosophy and range of automation sector products based on the playful practical example of “Robots in action”.
An Integralpicker V, a linear Multilift V robotic system and a six-axis robot moved a fleet of Bruder model vehicles around an obstacle course. The task was to load and unload two dumper trucks and a tractor with hay bales. The three automation units communicated with one another by means of peripheral-equipment interfaces.
As a further exhibit, a hydraulic Allrounder 470 C Golden Edition, equipped with a Multilift Select, demonstrated the efficient manufacturing of small parts boxes.
