Ambitious: Biggest Allrounder Produces Toolbox in Arburg Design

The literally “biggest” application highlight from Arburg at the K 2022 is the production of an exciting premium toolbox in Arburg design. At fair trade stand “13A13”, an efficient turnkey system centred on a hybrid Allrounder 1120 H with 6,500 kN clamping force and size 7000 injection unit will produce and refine the main components live.

For example, over-moulded 3D design films on the toolbox’s corners provide the necessary styling and high-grade aesthetics. A Scara robot processes the film inserts from project partner Leonhard Kurz, while further handling is taken on by a linear robotic system, the Multilift V 40. The films undergo in-mould lamination in the injection mould and are refined afterwards with embossed Arburg lettering in a hot stamping station. The lid and lower tray are discharged via a conveyor system. The toolboxes are completed manually outside the turnkey system using pre-manufactured components like the centre section, handle, closing clips and feet, and then given to the fair trade visitors.

Stylish toolbox: over-moulded 3D films and hot-stamped Arburg lettering provide high-grade aesthetics.

The Gestica control system exhibit has many intelligent functions, such as the new Varimos plug-in from Simcon for AI-supported variant analysis. Through the cross-linking of the software with the Gestica control system, even more precise machine parameters can be generated during the filling simulation with the “aXw Control FillAssist,” and the configuration of the moulded part and injection mould shortened from several weeks to a few days.
