Hybrid Allrounder 1120 H
World Premiere at K 2016
At K 2016 Arburg, Lossburg, Germany, introduces the hybrid Allrounder 1120 H – a new machine size in a new design with the new Gestica control system. The largest high-performance machine extends the portfolio in the clamping force range up to 6500 kN. At the trade fair, the exhibit will produce an eight-piece folding step stool in an exclusive Arburg design.
The hybrid Allrounder 1120 H extends the top end of the company's products, combining electric speed and precision with hydraulic power and dynamics. The dry cycle time is 2.4 s and the maximum opening stroke is 1050 mm. As well as its aesthetic appeal and modern color scheme and shape, the design features enhanced functionality and significantly improved ergonomics. The practical extras that simplify the set-up and operating sequences of the large machine include fold-out steps for accessing the clamping unit, service cabinets for the power supply equipment and integrated LED light strips that indicate the operating state.
Visionary Control System
The innovative Gestica control system also opens up a new dimension with a look and feel akin to that of smart mobile devices. These include a modern glass front, a high resolution, full HD screen and industry-grade multi-touch technology as well as one-click ergonomic hardware keys. The operating panel is also ergonomically tilted as well as height-adjustable and swiveling.
The Gestica is based on all the advantages of the well-proven and industry-standard-setting Selogica control system, but permits easier and more intuitive operation. With the new "Easyslider" operating element, movements can be simply and precisely controlled and displayed via color-variable LED technology during set-up. Acceleration and deceleration can be controlled "with a swipe of the finger" along a bar at the edge of the screen. The data records of the new Gestica and the proven Selogica control systems are fully compatible and the hierarchical structure and graphical programming system are identical.
Assembly within the Injection Molding Cycle
With a clamping force of 6,500 kN and a size 4600 injection unit, the exhibit will provide evidence of its capabilities at the K 2016 in the context of an innovative turnkey solution. A 1092 g folding step stool designed specifically for this leading international trade fair and for this particular machine by the Design Tech design studio, which was also involved in the development of the new Allrounder, will be produced.
The hybrid Allrounder 1120 H will mold eight individual PP parts in a cycle time of around 60 s in a single step using a family mold. During mold opening, the eight undercuts are demolded via spring-loaded drag slides. The associated new Multilift V 40 linear robotic system in cantilever design is precisely configured for the new machine size and has a moving demolding axis and a load bearing capacity of 40 kg. It gently removes the molded parts from the mold and sets them down precisely onto a rotary transfer table in a connected assembly station.
For the purposes of process-reliable final assembly, a six-axis robotic system works hand-in-hand with the Multilift. In the next step it attaches non-slip stoppers to the feet of the step stool and assembles the product ready for use.
