At Plastpol 2016, Arburg will highlight its newly launched Golden Electric series Allrounder injection molding machine.
“The new Allrounders from the Golden Electric series continue the success story of the Golden Edition hydraulic series and expand our product range to include high performance entry-level electric machines for the precise, energy-efficient production of complex molded parts,” stated Dr. Slawomir Sniady, Managing Director of Arburg Polska SP. z o o.
A new Allrounder 570 E Golden Electric with a clamping force of 2,000kN and size 800 injection unit will produce two CD trays in a cycle time of around 15s at Plastpol 2016. The 74g molded parts made from PS will be handled by a linear Multilift Select robotic system.
Designed for standard applications in thermoplastics processing, Arburg said the Allrounder Golden Electric machines offer superior price/performance ratio thanks to their consistent standardization, e.g. through the fixed combination of distance between tie-bars, clamping force and injection unit size.
The new machines are available in four sizes: 370, 470, 520 and 570 with clamping forces of 600kN, 1,000kN, 1,500kN and 2,000kN.
The second exhibit will be a hybrid high performance Allrounder 720 H from the Hidrive series with a clamping force of 3,200kN and size 1300 injection unit, which will produce flip-top closures for the packaging sector.
A 16-cavity mold from Polish company ZPTS Witoplast will be used to produce the 3.5g closures made from polypropylene (PP). The cycle time is around 12s.
