Arburg to demonstrate high speed bottle closures production at Plastics & Rubber Indonesia 2015

At Plastics & Rubber Indonesia 2015, Arburg will present an injection molding application designed for high volume production of screw caps for the packaging industry.

A hybrid Allrounder 570 H in the “Packaging” version, which features a clamping force of 1,800kN and a size 800 injection unit, will be seen producing screw caps at the show. It produces 24 water bottle closures in only 3s using a 24 cavity mold from Z-moulds.

In addition, the Arburg Freeformer additive manufacturing will also appear at the show.

“Using the Arburg Plastic Freeforming process, the innovative system additively manufactures design and functional samples from standard plastics based on 3D CAD data, without the need for a mold. We will demonstrate this based on the example of spray heads and gear cards,” said David Chan, Managing Director of Arburg Singapore and responsible for the entire ASEAN region.

Plastics & Rubber Indonesia 2015 will be held from November 18-21 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
