Arburg's annual Technology Days were attended by 5,900 visitors
Arburg welcomed nearly 6,000 visitors to its Lossburg headquarters in Germany last week as it held its annual Technology Days.
The event, from 11 to 14 March gave a detailed insight into industry trends and to see the highlights of the company's offering, with a focus on production-efficient processing technologies from one-off parts to high-volume production.
“Once again this year we have put together a very interesting range of technologies and services for our international guests, presenting our innovative and production-efficient solutions and offering an insight into the future of efficient plastic parts production,” said Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and spokesperson for the Arburg Management Team.
Arburg says the event is an opportunity to showcase its product range to customers in “a more intensive and individual way” compared to trade shows. Visitors to the 2015 event saw a range of machinery, including injection moulding machines focusing on micro components, lightweight construction and packaging, as well as the Freeformer producing individualised, one-off parts incorporating Industry 4.0 technologies.
This year, around 45 percent of visitors travelled from abroad. The largest groups came from Europe: Switzerland with around 280, France with around 210, the Czech Republic with around 160 and Poland with around 130 participants. Significant groups came from overseas, particularly from the US (around 140 guests) and China (around 100).
