Arburg presents powder injection moulding expertise in Shanghai

Experts meet at the PM Asia

(PresseBox) (Loßburg, ) From 6 to 8 April 2009, Arburg will be presenting its extensive powder injection moulding (PIM) range to Chinese trade visitors on Stands B15 & B16 at the PM Asia in the Shanghai Everbright Convention Center. The competent Arburg team will be at hand on the exhibition stand to provide advice.

"For us, the PM Asia is an excellent platform for presenting Arburg's expertise and product range in the powder injection moulding sector," says Zhao Tong, Manager of the Arburg subsidiary in Shanghai, with conviction. He goes on to explain that the Chinese PIM market is characterised by constant growth. He adds that Arburg is focusing not merely on machine sales, but is offering companies complete production solutions including comprehensive services that cover all aspects of the PIM process. Chinese customers greatly appreciate these services in his experience.

Expert presentation dealing with PIM-specific questions In addition to a consulting team from Arburg's Shanghai subsidiary, the company's member of staff responsible for PIM sales, Uwe Haupt, will also be available to answer questions. An important aspect of trade fairs such as this is a technical exchange of opinions between experts: "At our exhibition stand, we can not only explain the potential of this innovative process, but also deal with individual technical questions in detail."

In a specialist presentation, Uwe Haupt will discuss the subject of "Requirements for injection moulding equipment for micro PIM". Here, he will talk about special measures to adapt moulds, machines and automation and tackle these in depth. Furthermore, he will explain the various features in detail and back the information up with extensive application examples.

Extensive areas of application As a pioneer of powder injection moulding, Arburg still continues to develop new areas of application for this innovative process today. For this purpose, Arburg has an excellently-equipped laboratory at its new Customer Center in Lossburg, Germany, with appropriate equipment for all powder injection moulding operations: from material mixing and preparation through injection moulding to debinding and sintering of the moulded parts. Special PIM training courses complete the comprehensive service offering.

Allrounders for powder processing Arburg machines for the processing of powder materials differ from the standard Allrounders for plastics processing in their highly wear-resistant cylinder module, the screw geometry, which is especially adapted to powder injection moulding, and the position regulated screw. This ensures a high level of precision and reproducibility, as the injection process can quickly be speeded up and slowed down again.


Arburg, a German machine construction company, is one of the leading global manufacturers of injection moulding machines for plastics processing with clamping forces between 125 kN and 5,000 kN. Fields of application are, for example, the production of plastic parts for motor vehicles, communications and consumer electronics, medical technology, domestic appliances and packaging. The product range is completed by robotic systems, complex projects and other peripherals. Arburg's operations are coordinated by an integrated management system and are DIN EN ISO 9001 and 14001 certified. Arburg is represented by its own organisations in 24 countries at 32 locations and by trading partners in more than 50 countries. However, production takes place exclusively in the parent factory in Lossburg (Germany) - with the mark of quality "made by Arburg - made in Germany". From a total of more than 2,000 Arburg employees, around 1,700 work in Germany. Around 330 further employees work at the 23 subsidiaries and representative offices.
