Drinktec 2017: Arburg to demonstrate the packaging version of the Hybrid Allrounder 570 H

Global manufacturers of plastic processing machines, Arburg will demonstrate its injection moulding technology which has been specially optimised for the packaging industry, particularly for fast sequence and high-cavity moulds, at stand 323 in Hall A4 at the Drinktec 2017 in Munich. A packaging version of the hybrid Allrounder 570 H, has a clamping force of 1,800 kN and a size 800 injection unit. Twenty-four drink bottle caps will be produced in a cycle time of only 2.7 seconds on a high-performance mould from Z-moulds. The weight of the HDPE moulded parts is 1.25 grams. A vacuum conveyor and a direct colouring device ensure a correspondingly high throughput. Quality monitoring is carried out in-line using an optical system.

The hybrid Allrounders of the Hidrive series impress with their connection of hydraulic and electric machine components for high performance. They work very cost-effectively and remain highly productive and energy-efficient. This is ensured in particular by the combination of a high-speed servo-electric toggle, electric dosing and hydraulic accumulator technology. This facilitates accurate, dynamic injection at a high-performance level. Simultaneous machine movements ensure reduced cycle times.

The machine base is designed for very high loads, while the FEM-optimised mounting platens combine high rigidity with low weight. The highly wear-resistant cylinder modules are equipped with position-regulated barrier screws.

Special features are available for the production of thin-walled parts and screw caps, enabling the Packaging machines to be individually tailored to the relevant application.

Arburg’s product portfolio includes Allrounder injection moulding machines with clamping forces between 125 and 6,500 kN, the Freeformer for industrial additive manufacturing, robotic systems, customer and industry-specific turnkey solutions, as well as further peripheral equipment.

Arburg is represented by its own organisations at 33 locations in 25 countries and by trading partners in more than 50 countries. The machines are produced exclusively at the parent company in Lossburg, Germany.
