February 05, 2018 / Stephen Moore
The relocation of Chinaplas to a new exhibition site in the Hongqiao area of Shanghai presented German injection machine builder Arburg with the opportunity to expand its stand area by a factor of 2.5 to 600 square meters and bring a lot more technology to the event.
At the exhibition stand, visitors can discover solutions Arburg offers for the Smart Factory and the "Made in China 2025" state-sponsored industrial development plan and how Industry 4.0 components can be individually combined. These include, for example, industrial Ethernet, as well as online process control, data acquisition, detailed planning and status monitoring. Further information is also available, for example on the individualization of high-volume parts as single-unit batches by combining injection molding and additive manufacturing. Further offerings include the new remote maintenance tool and numerous assistance systems for starting, setting-up, optimizing, producing and monitoring tasks.
