I/M machine is largest in series

The new Allrounder 520 U from Arburg Inc. is the largest of the company’s universal U Series injection molding machines.

The 520 U features an internal distance between tie bars of 520 x 520 millimetres and is available with clamping forces of 1,300, 1,500 kN and 1,600 kN. Injection unit sizes 290 and 400 can be used on all the machines, the 800 size on the 1,500 kN and 1,600 kN machines.

Also, the compact, centrally applied and fully hydraulic clamping system comes with individually removable tie bars.


The 520 U is designed to run on minimum oil volume, with an oil change interval of every 20,000 hours.

The model comes standard with Selogica touch-screen controller with interfaces for PC, keyboard, plotter, robotic system according to Euromap 12 or 67, part weighing scale, optical barrier, host processor, AQC, LSR dosing system and Allrounder@web access.

Multiple language options are also standard, as is a serial printer interface for hard copy, data record and quality protocol.

I/M system for barrier-coated medical disposables

Husky Injection Molding Systems, in conjunction with Nano Scale Surface Systems Inc., has introduced injection molding systems for the production of plastic medical disposables with an internal barrier coating of silicon dioxide. The process produces parts with glass-like properties, providing a barrier against gas transfer and preventing chemical reaction between fluids and the plastic parts.

The parts produced on the Husky systems can replace many medical disposables currently manufactured with glass, including test tubes and blood vials, eliminating the risk of breakage and injury.
