Among the exhibits on view in the Packaging Technology area at the Arburg Technology Days 2015 at the company's headquarters in Lossburg, Germany, were thin-walled parts, screw caps, flip-top and multi-component closures, all of which were being molded on the various packaging versions offered by Arburg to meet the notoriously stringent demands of the packaging industry.
A "Packaging" (P) version is available for both the Hidrive and Alldrive machines. The machines are available in six sizes, covering a clamping force range between 1,300 and 4,600 kN. The "Packaging" machines feature a specially adapted "distance between tie bars/clamping force/opening stroke" combination. Moreover, they ensure fast, precise, energy-saving mold movements thanks to servo-electric toggle-type clamping units, high plasticizing flows, servo-electric dosage drives, dynamic position-regulated screws and effective injection volume flows. Barrier screws ensure high material throughput and homogeneous melt preparation.
