Product Efficiency in Focus during Arburg Packaging Days 2014

Some 220 international guests came to visit the Arburg Packaging Days 2014

More than 220 packaging experts from more than 30 nations came to Lossburg, Germany, for the “Arburg Packaging Days 2014”. The packaging technology conference, which was held by Arburg GmbH & Co. KG for the first time on 5 and 6 November, offered guests interesting specialist presentations, innovative live demonstrations and the opportunity for a lively exchange experiences.

The focus lay on the topic of production efficiency, which was considered all along the value chain. Arburg offered a live presentation of four injection molding solutions for the cost-efficient production of thin-walled containers, closures and other packaging items. In a series of specialist presentations, internal and external speakers explained market trends and technical solutions. Moreover, guests had the opportunity to hold discussions with the experts and to take a look behind the scenes at the German machine manufacturer’s headquarters.

The international conference included presentations by well-known speakers, as well as special practical packaging-related applications (figures: Arburg)

“Our first event to focus specifically on the topic of packaging attracted a number of well-known customers and speakers,” summarized Andreas Reich, Senior Sales Manager Packaging at Arburg. “We showed in very practical terms how we have adapted our modular injection molding technology to the specific needs of the packaging industry in recent years and the response has been extremely positive overall.”

Among other systems, Arburg demonstrated a system built around a hybrid Allrounder 720 H in the “Packaging” (P) version as an example for the drinks industry. A 72-cavity mold from z-moulds was used to produce so-called PCO-1881 closures for carbonated soft drinks (CSD) in a cycle time of only around 3.5 s. Downstream, a closure cooling unit made by eisbär Trockentechnik and an optical quality control system from Intravis were also on view.

Arburg used a high-speed application to demonstrate the potential of the high-performance electric Alldrive machine series. An electric Allrounder 820 A with a clamping force of 4,000 kN and a size 2100 injection unit, equipped with a 24+24-cavity mold from Fratelli Bianchi produced 24 ready-to-ship cutlery sets in a cycle time of around 5.5 s. This corresponded to an output of around 31,500 parts per hour. Removal and packaging in PP film were handled by an automation system from Campetella Robotic.

The Arburg Packaging Days event also included a varied programme of side events that allowed guests plenty of opportunities to exchange experiences, as well as an evening event at the Customer Center.
