Arburg to present extensive portfolio for elastomer processing at DKT 2024 in Nuremberg

Lossburg, Germany – From 1 to 4 July 2024, ARBURG will be presenting its broad portfolio for the processing of elastomers at DKT, the German Rubber Conference and associated international trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany. The exhibit on the ARBURG stand 327 in Hall 9 will be producing bottle openers from solid silicone (HCR) by way of example. For this purpose, the electric machine will be equipped with a new material feed from partner ACH.

An electric ALLROUNDER 570 A will be demonstrating how solid silicone (high consistency rubber, HCR) can be injection molded in a way that is both energy and production efficient. A continuous feed is ensured by the new ACH TURNMIX dosing technology in the new size M, which is particularly suitable for medium-sized injection units and HCR in Shore hardnesses ranging from Shore A 20 to Shore A 80. Four bottle openers are produced in a cycle time of around 60 seconds. As part of the silicone equipment package, the injection unit has a special conical screw geometry, cylinder temperature control and nozzle technology. The equipment, which is precisely tailored to the processing of solid silicones, makes the ALLROUNDER together with the ACH TURNMIX a compact and economical injection molding solution.
