From 28 to 31 January 2020, Arburg will be in attendance at Interplastica in Moscow, Russia at stand 1B25 in hall 2. A Packaging version of the hybrid Allrounder 570 H will be demonstrating live how thin-walled IML containers are produced for the packaging industry. What’s more, visitors will be able to speak to Arburg’s experts and find out all about the company’s comprehensive product portfolio, which includes automation, turnkey systems and digitalisation.
“Despite the current economic situation and international trade conflicts, we have been able to maintain a strong position in Russia as well as in Eastern and Central Europe in 2019, and we have even managed to gain ground in some business fields, as has been the case with our solutions for the packaging and medical industries,” explains Stephan Doehler, Sales Director Europe at Arburg. “At Interplastica 2020, we are using a hybrid high-performance machine to showcase a production-efficient and automated injection moulding solution for the packaging industry.”
Production-efficient IML application
The highest priorities for fast, high-quality mass production in the packaging industry are precision and short cycle times. This is exactly what you can expect from the Packaging version of the efficient, high-performance, hybrid Hidrive machine series with clamping forces of up to 6,000 kN.
At Interplastica 2020, a Packaging version of the high-speed, hybrid Allrounder 570 H with clamping forces of 1,800 kN and an injection unit in size 800 will be producing thin-walled IML containers made from PP and featuring tamper-evident closures. A 4-cavity mould from Otto Hofstetter and an IML automation solution from Machines Pagès are used in the machine. The cycle time for four 155-millilitre capacity round tubs weighing 6.3 grams is only around three seconds.
