Arburg GmbH + Co KG, a leading injection moulding machine manufacturer based in Lossburg, Germany, has stated that its Technology Days 2014 were more popular than ever before with nearly 7000 invited guests attending the unique event in Lossburg from March 19-22.
Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and Spokesperson for the Arburg Management Team stated, “Our Technology Days have been a major attraction for the international plastics world for many years. This year, the interest has been absolutely overwhelming with approximately 6,900 trade visitors from 52 countries learning about our innovative and production-efficient solutions for plastic part production at first hand in Lossburg. That’s nearly a quarter more than in the previous record year 2013.”
A highlight for visitors was Arburg’s Freeformer machine. The new system, which enables the Additive Manufacturing of functional components from standard plastic granulates, received its global premiere at the K 2013 trade fair, was available to experience at first hand and, stated Arburg, generated a great deal of enthusiasm.
In addition to innovative applications and product innovations, the visitors also had the opportunity to see injection moulding production for themselves and to participate in extensive factory tours, including Arburg’s dedicated Powder Injection Moulding laboratory.
