Arburg showcases 90-year history in new exhibit space

Injection moulding machine maker Arburg’s completely redesigned “Evolution” exhibit at the its headquarters in Lossburg (northern Black Forest) brings the company’s 90-year history to life.

Covering around 770 sq m, the exhibition area offers visitors an interactive approach to the company’s history – from its founding in 1923 to the present. The exhibition includes injection moulding machines such as the latest launch, Freeformer for additive manufacturing, and many more innovations, historic milestones and product examples from the last 90 years, according to the German firm. Accounts of historical events and wide-ranging multimedia content complement the exhibition.

With its interactive touchscreen monitors, the showcase also answers questions such as: how did Arburg become the worldwide leading manufacturer of injection moulding machines? Who are the heads of the family-owned company? Why was the first machine built from a bombed-out railway bridge? How has the brand developed over the decades? How will plastic materials be processed in 2040?

Visitors will also be able to view the first medical products made in 1923, consumer goods manufactured during the Second World War, flash units from the period of the Economic Miracle. It also includes the company’s milestones in injection moulding machine technology, right up to the latest Allrounder machines and the brand new Freeformer for additive manufacturing, which was introduced at last year’s K2013 exhibition.

The presentation is rounded off with an exhibit wall containing around 600 plastic parts, videos and so-called thematic and vision spheres. Visitors can call up detailed information on various levels, covering topics such as injection moulding processes, automation, corporate development, the brand, trade fairs and historical events, as well as taking a glimpse into the future.
