Almost 6,000 invited guests attended the Arburg Technology Days 2015 event in Lossburg, Germany, from March 11 – 14, 2015, in order to gain a detailed insight into industry trends and to see highlights of the Arburg’s latest injection moulding technology.
This year’s event had the theme of production-efficient processing technologies.
“Once again this year we have put together a very interesting range of technologies and services for our international guests, presenting our innovative and production-efficient solutions and offering an insight into the future of efficient plastic parts production,” stated Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and spokesperson for the Arburg Management Team.
“As every year, we welcomed several thousands of visitors from all over the world. This is because there is no comparable event all over the world and because we can attend our customers in a more intensive and individual way, compared to the trade fairs.” Around 45% of visitors travelled from abroad, with large delegations from the US and China.
Micro parts production was highlighted with a special micro production cell built around an electric Allrounder 270 A operated with the new Euromap size 5 micro-injection unit. Together with a linear Multilift H 3+1 robotic system, this formed a flexible system solution for the reproducible production of micro components, in this case micro counter wheels weighing just 0.004 g. The new micro-injection unit combines the precise regulation of short strokes with high filling dynamics.
