RDAbbott is partnering with ARBURG and Roembke Mfg. & Design, Inc., to share advanced technologies for injection molding. RDAbbott’s Service Center in Barberton, Ohio, will be the venue for this free event, which is scheduled for November 2, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (ET). Doors open at 9:30 AM, presentations begin at 10:00 AM, and heavy hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided throughout the event. Non-competitors are invited to register online at https://rdabbott.com/news/arburg-openhouse.
Visitors to the Open House can expect to learn about ARBURG’s high-precision, all-electric ALLROUNDER Injection Molding Machines, Roembke’s Quick Prototype Systems (QPS) and liquid-valve cold deck systems, and RDAbbott’s supply of high-performance elastomers and top-notch technical support. In addition to hearing from industry-leading experts, attendees will gain firsthand experience they can use to optimize their manufacturing operations.
ARBURG’s ALLROUNDER machines feature advanced process control for the consistent, predictable injection molding of thermoplastics, liquid silicone rubber (LSR), high consistency rubber (HCR), and powder injection molding (PIM). A smart control system, developed and manufactured by ARBURG, maintains adaptive control over the machine, mold, robotics, and peripheral technology. Some application examples include sealing rings, caps, respirator masks, lenses, and medical drug implants—as well as automated systems for overmolding application. Optional dosing, vacuum, and demolding technology is also available as part of ALLBURG’s complete automation solution.
Roembke’s QPS technologies enable the testing of iterative designs and material changes without incurring the typical costs and lengthy lead times associated with building a full production mold or a bridge mold. The QPS is available for both LSR and HCR materials and provides production-equivalent parts for testing material grades, establishing shrink rates, and comparing parting line and gate locations. Roembke’s proprietary and stand-alone cold deck systems are easy to clean, maintain, and disassemble.
