Machinery innovations at K2016

  • Germany-based Arburg will have 27 machines on show at partner booths, with 12 on its own stand. A 100-tonne electric Allrounder Golden Electric entry level machine series, with a size 290 injection unit, which made its debut in March, will be producing a technical part. Profoam physical foaming will be producing an automotive application. Dynamic mould temperature control will be used to produce a high gloss surface. An innovative cube mould technology designed for multi-component packaging will be presented, as well as the two-component moulding of a wristwatch from two different LSRs. Another highlight will be a high-speed application for medical technology, where a clean room version of an electric Allrounder 470A will be used.

  • Making their debut at Canadian Husky Injection Molding Systems’s booth will be new integrated solutions such as HyCAP 4 that will run 1.25-g 29/25 closures for a mineral water application in a 2.4-second cycle and a speciality closure system producing 6.1-g flip-top closures for shampoo bottles, in under 8.5 seconds. Integrated will be eIMC in-mould closing technology, which enables better part quality and 20% cycle time improvement. At its experience centre it will showcase multi-layer barrier technology, including examples of existing and future applications. Introduced in 2015, the technology is built on the HyPET HPP5 platform, combining benefits of an easy-to-maintain system with precise dosing of the barrier layer. It will also show medical moulds by Schöttli.
