Arburg to present Golden Electric Allrounder at Taipei Plas 2016
From August 12-16, Arburg will present an electric and a hydraulic injection molding machine at Taipei Plas 2016.
An Allrounder 470 E Golden Electric machine with a clamping force of 1,000kN and a size 290 injection unit will produce pill splitters for the medical technology sector.
For this purpose, four blades are inserted into the 4+4-cavity mold and overmolded, while the upper section of the splitter is simultaneously produced from polycarbonate (PC).
The cycle time is around 25s and the molded part weight is 22g. Removal and assembly of the upper and lower sections is performed by a linear Multilift Select robotic system.
At the show, an hydraulic Allrounder, also with a clamping force of 1,000kN and a size 290 injection unit, will be presented. The machine is designed for the processing of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and produces flexible LSR bumpers for the iPhone 6 in a cycle time of around 20s.
The part weight is 21g. The mold is supplied by Prover, the LSR dosage system by 2 KM. Handling is performed by a Multilift Select robotic system with a load-bearing capacity of 6kg.
The Multilift Select is the entry-level model among the linear robotic systems from Arburg. It features servo-electric drive axes and is fully integrated in the Selogica machine control system.
“The Taipei Plas represents an excellent opportunity to present our team to our customers in Taiwan and to demonstrate the latest technologies and industrial applications,” said Michael Huang, Managing Director of the Arburg subsidiary in Taiwan, which was newly established in April 2016.
