Arburg showcases complete plastic parts production range at ‘important’ industry event

At CHINAPLAS 2016, Arburg is presenting a complete range of plastic part production – from one-off parts through to high-volume production at a show it says is “extremely important”.

The company is exhibiting a Freeformer demonstrating the efficient additive manufacture of design samples and prototypes based on the example of a “pill splitter”. The same product is being manufactured in high volumes on an electric injection moulding machine .

A high-speed IML thin-walled application is also on show, where a ‘packaging’ version of the company’s hybrid Allrounder producing four IML containers in a cycle time of around 3.2 seconds.

“As one of the world’s key showcases for the plastics industry , the Chinaplas is extremely important to us. Arburg is growing in the Chinese market because ever more injection moulding companies are demanding top-quality machines, which is why they are placing their trust in our high-end technology and the extensive expertise of our staff,” explained Zhao Tong, Managing Director of the Arburg organisations in China.

“Working in cooperation with Chinese partners, one of the applications we are showing this year is a high-performance hybrid machine that produces IML tubs for the packaging sector. We are also demonstrating the production of pill splitters – both in a high-volume application with an electric Allrounder and in an additive manufacturing solution for small batches using the Freeformer. Arburg is the only company able to achieve this.”
