Arburg at Fakuma 2021: “The best of both worlds”

  • “Wir sind da.”: Arburg will have a major in-person presence at the plastic trade fair in Friedrichshafen
  • Two worlds, one goal: Digitalization and sustainability for more production efficiency
  • Live: New machines, innovative applications, in-person discussions at the Arburg stand

Taking place from 12th to 16th October, Fakuma is this year’s first big international in-person event for the plastics sector to be held in Germany. Arburg is preparing for a major appearance at the trade fair in Friedrichshafen. The focus will be on “The best of both worlds”: “arburgXworld” and “arburgGREENworld”. Arburg will be live and in person at stand 3101 in Hall A3, where trade visitors will learn everything there is to know about digital, sustainable and production-efficient plastics processing.

“We can hardly wait to talk in person again to customers and interested parties. Our team is highly motivated and looks forward to presenting the many highlights live to the visitors,” emphasises Juliane Hehl, Managing Partner with responsibility for Marketing at Arburg. “The Fakuma has traditionally been of great importance to us. The visit to Arburg will certainly be an experience that trade visitors will remember for a long time. With our pioneering spirit and focused strategy, we will show how plastic parts can be produced today and tomorrow, competitively, sustainably, and digitally interconnected.”

Great themes of the future

Visit Arburg to discover what is driving the plastics world and making it fit for the future. At Fakuma 2021, the industry leader will present its bundled competencies and new developments.

Arburg puts a great deal of know-how into its customer portal “arburgXworld” and the development of new digital services and features that bring real added value, such as the “AnalyticsCenter” for process analysis. In future it will also be possible to integrate machines and peripheral devices from other manufacturers into the central platform.

The sustainable production of plastic parts and their return into the recyclable materials cycle (Circular Economy) is illustrated by Arburg through innovative application examples. These include separation by type using a digital watermark (“HolyGrail2.0” and “CurveCode”) during production of IML and espresso cups. A real eye-catcher are “green” sunglasses made of bio-based PA12 and produced on a sophisticated turnkey system.

Trade fair premier and innovative applications

The Allrounder More series for efficient multi-component injection moulding will premier at Fakuma 2021. Further highlights are the planetary roller screw drives developed and produced in Lossburg and the trendsetting Gestica control system. A total of nine machine exhibits will demonstrate innovate applications and processes at the trade fair stand. On view will be the efficient production of IML cups for the packaging sector, of blood tubes and 2k fluid housings for the medical sector, as well as the injection moulding of LSR mask holders and the industrial additive processing of LSR materials and original plastic granules
