“There is only a Plan A”: Arburg clearly hit the bull’s eye with this message at the world’s leading trade fair, K 2022, in Düsseldorf, Germany – inspiring countless trade fair visitors in the process. A total of around 30 machine exhibits on its main stand, in the arburgGREENworld pavilion in the VDMA Circular Economy Forum, and on partners’ stands showcased sophisticated applications and technologies in injection moulding, additive manufacturing and automation. Sustainability, digitalisation and resilience were the topics that took centre stage.
“We experienced a huge footfall at our main stand 13A13 and the arburgGREENworld pavilion in the VDMA Circular Economy Forum. We are very much satisfied with the quantity, quality and internationality of the visitors, especially in view of the current conditions,” said Juliane Hehl, Managing Partner responsible for Marketing and Business Development, summing up the company’s successful trade fair appearance. “At K, we gave an impressive demonstration of where the journey is headed.”
Innovative solutions for resource conservation
“As a machine manufacturer, we are vigorously pursuing a strategy towards greater resource efficiency, CO2 reduction and circular economy. This is an important issue for our customers worldwide, and one that we are bringing to life,” said Gerhard Böhm, Arburg Managing Director Sales and Service. Among the items on show was a demonstration of how PIR and PCR recyclates can be processed into high-quality products with the help of hardware and software together with the new “aXw Control RecyclatePilot” and other smart controller functions. One such product was a tool case in Arburg design, probably one of the most coveted give-aways at the entire trade fair.
Visitors to the arburgGREENworld pavilion were able to gain an impressive insight into how Arburg, with its “Plan A”, is playing its part in solving a global problem affecting society as a whole. It was there that Arburg trainees not only “rocked” the pavilion but also held numerous discussions on the future of plastics as a recyclable material – with young visitors in particular. Talks were also held with experts from science and industry. And an electric Allrounder produced “Greenline” anchors from Fischer using plastic based on castor oil.
High-end injection moulding technology
At its main stand 13A13, Arburg presented a wide range of sophisticated applications and innovative technologies from its entire portfolio: injection moulding machines, additive manufacturing, automation, plus internally developed control systems, drive trains and digital products and services. “We offer our customers everything they need not only to work in an energy- and production-efficient way in these challenging times, but also to strengthen resilience in the long term,” explained Guido Frohnhaus, Arburg Managing Director Technology & Engineering.
