Over 6,700 guests from 53 different countries attended Arburg’s Technology Days 2017, the organisers report. The event was held from March 15-18, 2017 at Arburg’s Headquarters in Lossburg, Germany, and included more than 50 technological exhibits, as well as specialist presentations and factory tours.

A highlight in the Powder Injection Moulding area was the world’s first metal injection moulded (MIM) frame for smartphones. A hydraulic Allrounder 470 C Golden Edition processed feedstock from BASF to produce a green compact in an Arburg design with a thickness of only 1 millimetre and a length of 136 millimetres.

Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and Spokesperson for the Arburg Management Team stated, “For our annual Technology Days, we do everything we can to ensure that our invited guests get a comprehensive insight into the Arburg product range. Our customers really appreciated the unique atmosphere, made great use if the opportunity to talk with our experts and, at the end of the day, took away some key ideas for their own production”.

Over 2,000 participants attended specialist presentations in German and English. Here, some of the Arburg’s experts spoke about lightweight construction, Arburg Plastic Freeforming and turnkey solutions. External specialist presentations covered topics such as Industry 4.0 and the partnership offered by Arburg from the customer’s perspective. Almost 1,500 visitors from Germany attended factory tours.

Arburg reported that 43% of visitors travelled to the event from abroad, with 170 attendees travelling from North America and 125 from China. From within Europe, 210 attendees travelled from Switzerland, 180 from the Czech Republic and 160 from France.
