ARBURG to Highlight Sustainable Plastic Processing Equipment at Fakuma

At Fakuma from 12 to 16 October 2021 in Friedrichshafen. ARBURG's trade fair presentation in Hall A3 will focus on "The best of both worlds": "arburgXworld" and "arburgGREENworld". Visitors can experience everything there is to know about digital, sustainable and production-efficient plastics processing live at their stall.
Products at Display
At the trade fair stand, ARBURG will be exhibiting its bundled competencies and new developments in the area of digital products and services.
arburgXworld: ARBURG puts a great deal of know-how into its customer portal "arburgXworld" and the development of new digital services and features that bring genuine added value, such as the "AnalyticsCenter" for process analysis. Another innovation is that it will also be possible to integrate machines and peripheral devices from other manufacturers into the central platform in future.
arburgGREENworld: The sustainable production of plastic parts and their return to the recyclable materials cycle (circular economy) will be illustrated by ARBURG using innovative application examples. These will include separation by type using a digital watermark ("HolyGrail2.0" and "CurveCode") during production of IML and espresso cups. A real eye-catcher are "green" sunglasses made of bio-based PA12 and produced on a sophisticated turnkey system.
ALLROUNDER MORE series: For efficient multi-component injection molding will be on show live for the first time. Further highlights will be the planetary roller screw drives developed and produced in Lossburg and the trendsetting GESTICA control system.
A total of nine machine exhibits will demonstrate innovate applications and processes:
  • Thin-walled IML cups for the packaging sector
  • Blood test tubes and 2K fluid housings for medical technology
  • LSR face masks
  • Hybrid parts
  • Additively manufactured components made from original plastic granules and LSR materials
