ARBURG at Chinaplas 2022: High-end wherever you look

A high-tech-friendly country like China hosting one of the largest international plastics trade fairs: Chinaplas 2022 in Shanghai is  set to be particularly interesting. Naturally, Arburg's appearance there has been planned accordingly. Particularly interesting  target groups will be attending from the automotive industry, the highly dynamic medical technology sector, and the electronics  industry. Machine technology and processes will match these, with LSR processing, high-speed medical  applications, and lightweight construction with FDC.

Campetella Cartesian robots

When you have to deal with long production lines featured by vertical excursions, made of different workstations, in turn  crossed by semi-finished products, or a challenging space-constraining layout, the Cartesian system is undoubtedly your best  option, as it guarantees maximum results and performance where the application requires a linear movement over an extended  working area. Such a condition is typical of many application fields, such as food & beverage packaging, automotive  and painting.

Part and process optimization with targeted heat pulses in the cavity

The idea of assembling "Heat-Inject" on hot runner systems has its origins in the concept of pre-assembled modules. The idea  here is to offer customers components for their injection molds that are already assembled into ready-to-use and readyto- plug-  in modules, thus saving effort and time during tuning and installation. Of course, the tempering stamp needs to be  spotted in order to create a suitable contact surface for optimum heat transfer.

SKZ and Toolcraft join KraussMaffei in LSR technology

For many years, liquid silicone (LSR) had a reputation as being a difficult material that was only for specialists and incompatible  with conventional thermoplastic processing. Despite this, more and more companies are discovering this  interesting material. SKZ (The Plastics Center, Würzburg, Germany) and Toolcraft (Georgensgmünd, near Nuremberg), an  innovative expert in the field of precision components, are collaborating to explore the possibilities and limits. KraussMaffei is  playing a large part in this endeavor as a machine partner.

BCN3D unveils Viscous Lithography Manufacturing 3D printing technology

Under its vision to unlock manufacturing autonomy, where companies should have the tools to design and manufacture their  own products and full control over the Additive Manufacturing (AM) fabrication life-cycle, comes BCN3D’s new VLM technology.  It is the first 3D printing technology to simultaneously encompass superb part performance, high production  capacity, and accessible and frictionless operation.

Think big – large-format plastic housings for high-voltage batteries of electric vehicles

Speciality chemicals company LANXESS and Kautex Textron GmbH & Co. KG have been collaborating for several years to  research whether battery housings for electric vehicles can be designed and manufactured from technical thermoplastics.  Together, they have developed a near-series technology demonstrator in a feasibility study. The goal of the project was to  demonstrate the advantages of thermoplastics over metals in terms of weight and cost reduction, functional integration and  electrical insulation behavior.
