LOSSBURG, GERMANY -- Production efficiency was the focus of this year’s Technology Days event, organized in March by injection molding machinery producer Arburg GmbH + Co. KG in Lossburg.
Arburg defines production efficiency as an overarching “meta theme” determined by eight key elements; injection molding machine technology, mold technology, ancillary equipment (peripherals), equipment configuration, process integration, process control, production planning and product design.
The company’s four-day open house in March attracted more than 5,200 visitors, 43 percent of which were from abroad, with 200 from Switzerland, about 160 each from France, Poland and Czech Republic and 140 from the U.S.
