Arburg explainer videos: expert knowledge – in a nutshell

  • Making the complex comprehensible: experts explain the world of plastics
  • Entertaining short videos: well informed at all times
  • Kickoff: explainer videos for the new series of explainer videos and the arburgXworld customer portal

Lossburg, 10/12/2020

Time is precious and knowledge gives you a head start. Arburg is now bringing the two together: in three-minute explainer videos, experts will pass on their knowledge in an easy-to-understand, concise and yet entertaining way. In doing this, the company is once again positioning itself as a pioneer in the industry. Customers and other interested parties can now find out about innovative products, services and software from Arburg through the new series.

“Many people explain things that are complex in complicated terms. We, on the other hand, make it simple and as such better. Viewers will enjoy diving into a whole range of different topics with our experts and expanding their knowledge in next to no time.” says Dr Christoph Schumacher, Department Manager Marketing and Corporate Communications at Arburg, to explain what motivated the creation of the new series of explainer videos. “If you know our products and services well, you can tap into their full potential. We are happy to share our expertise.”

In terms that everyone can understand

The world is getting more digital, more networked and more complex all the time. The challenge lies in explaining the complex in a way that everyone can understand and putting relevant aspects and innovations in a nutshell. This is exactly what Arburg’s experts are doing right now by sharing their extensive expertise in the new series. The explainer videos are designed not only for customers but also for partners, interested members of the public and employees all over the world.

Professionally prepared information

In each episode, an Arburg expert explains a selected topic – with good humour, professionalism and in just three minutes. A “beacon” acts as a little helper, providing additional graphic information and making the topic even easier to understand. The videos will be hosted by Guido Marschall from plastics broadcaster Plas.TV. Additional information is provided via links to the Arburg website and product brochures, for example.
