Düsseldorf, Germany — Arburg GmbH + Co. KG took the wraps off its new hybrid Allrounder 1120 H — its largest-tonnage injection press ever at 650 tons of clamping force, with a sleek new design and the new Gestica control system.
And when you visit Arburg in Hall 13/A13, you can see the press in a manufacturing cell molding — and automatically assembling — an eight-piece folding step stool. That will come in handy during K to rest your tired feet.
The press extends the company's portfolio up to 650 tons. The dry cycle on the Hybrid Allrounder 1120 is 2.4 seconds, and the maximum opening stroke is 1,050 millimeters.
“The new Allrounder 1120 H is a response to our customers' needs for large and efficient high-performance machines,” said Gerhard Böhm, Arburg's managing director of sales.
Arburg has designed the press with an aesthetic appeal and a modern color scheme and shape.
“With the new design, our renowned high-quality technology has been given an appropriately visionary appearance: aesthetically pleasing, dynamic and modern,” Juliane Hehl, Arburg managing partner, said at a news conference held Oct. 18, the day before K 2016 kicked off.
The complete manufacturing cell is an example of a turnkey system, a growing area for Arburg. Böhm said in 2015, growth in the turnkey segment helped drive a 12 percent increase in the value of incoming orders over the year before, expressed in euros.
