Arburg Expansion in Thailand
Largest Arburg Showroom in Southeast Asia
With its electric, hybrid and hydraulic plastic injection moulding machines, turnkey systems and industrial additive manufacturing system the Arburg GmbH + Co KG is one of the leading manufacturers of high-end injection moulding machines for plastics processing. It is represented worldwide by fully owned organisations at 33 locations in 25 countries and by trading partners in more than 50 countries. Central production and administration site is Lossburg in the Northern Black Forest.
"The positive development over the past decades confirms that we chose the right path and that our continuous investments in the important Asian market have paid off," said Andrea Carta, Arburg Director of Overseas Sales. Since late 1992, the Thai market had initially been managed by a representative office of Arburg Pte Ltd. Its first employee was Ratree Boonsay who took over the management of the newly founded subsidiary in 2001. "We are very proud to have the largest Arburg showroom in Southeast Asia because of the new premises," she said. "This enables us to offer our customers in Thailand optimum support and even better service." With 705 square metres, the new location provides ample space for the presentation of machines, customer trials and training courses and a large spare parts warehouse, which allows more spare parts to be delivered directly.
Official Opening with Performance
To mark the occasion the Managing Director hosted an open house event. The guests experienced the performance of the Allrounder injection moulding machines with two packaging applications. A hybrid Allrounder 570 H with a clamping force of 2000 kN produced two 500-millilitre containers in a cycle time of around six seconds. The second exhibit, an electric Allrounder 470 E Golden Electric with a clamping force of 1000 kN produced two stacking boxes in a cycle time of around 18 seconds. A linear Multilift Select robotic system was used for handling of the moulded parts weighing 63.8 grams each. (bf)
