In the presence of thousands of customers and other industry insiders from throughout the world, Arburg opened its new Customer Center in Lossburg, Germany, and also introduced new machinery lines.

 

The company’s 2009 Technology Days event, held from March 19 to 21 in Lossburg, marked the official opening of the 2,100 square meter Customer Center.

 

 

“At our Customer Center, we are now able to highlight the products and applications which have long featured in our range but have not yet been adequately presented,” said Michael Hehl, managing partner at Arburg. “The Center’s focal points will be customer tests and personalized consulting on applications technology.”

 

 

Arburg also used the occasion to launch its new Allrounder H/Hidrive line of injection molding machines. According to Arburg, the units combine servo-electric and hydraulic components to offer reduced cycle times and energy savings of up to 40 per cent.

 

The company also announced the addition of two new sizes to its Allrounder A series injection molding machines. The Allrounder 270 A is the smallest size in Arburg’s range of electric machines, with a clamping force of 350 kN and size 70 injection unit. Additionally, the Allrounder 720 A has a maximum clamping force of 3,200 kN and a size 800 injection unit.
