Digitalisation and resource conservation
The Chinese market, and thus the trade fair, is of great importance for Arburg. This is reflected in the first-class trade fair appearance, even though the visitors are likely to be limited to interested locals this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Those who can attend get to see high-end machine technology and turnkey solutions, which are highly sought-after in the important Chinese market. Arburg is focusing on the topics of digitalisation and resource conservation. Other highlights at the fair are the Freeformer for the industrial additive manufacturing and a smart Allrounder in the “Factory of the Future”.
The “arburgXworld” program contains the entire range of digital products and services. With its numerous apps and configuration levels, the customer portal with the same name provides extensive digital support. At Chinaplas, all injection moulding exhibits are equipped with an IIoT gateway and networked via the Arburg host computer system (ALS). In the “Factory of the Future” (hall 11, stand J41), Arburg additionally showcases real-life application examples that illustrate the advantages offered by digitalisation and automation in injection moulding.
