Arburg highlights expertise in multi-component injection moulding at Interplastica 2019
At Interplastica 2019 Arburg will be presenting a complex application for multi-component injection moulding: A hydraulicmpo two-conent Allrounder 570 S will produce ice scrapers from ABS and TPE.
An Allrounder 570 S with a clamping force of 2,200 kN and two, size 400 and 170, injection units will produce the 80 g parts. First, the machine produces the pre-moulded part from ABS using the horizontally arranged size 400 injection unit. The 1+1-cavity mould supplied by Polarform is then rotated through 180 degrees via a servo-electric indexing unit and, in this position, the TPE component is moulded on via the vertical, size 170 injection unit. In this manner, a ready-to-use finished part with a flexible lip is produced in a cycle time of about 40 s.
"After the Russian market has continually recovered last year, 2018 will be a good year for us. There is particularly high demand for applications in the packaging and medical sectors," said Stephan Doehler, Arburg's European Sales Director. "At Interplastica 2019, we will showcase the economical high-volume production of high-quality multi-component components using ice scrapers as an example."
