    Arburg Packaging Summit focuses on resource efficiency and circular economy

    Arburg hosted the second “Packaging Summit” on 25 and 26 June 2019 in Lossburg. The event – which was attended by around 120 guests from all over the world – was conceived to bring together leading experts from industry, research and professional associations, providing a platform for sharing knowledge on trends, resource efficiency and the circular economy in the packaging sector.

    “At Arburg, we’ve been looking closely at the topics of resource efficiency and the circular economy for some time now. We have understood the problem and acknowledged its scale, and are doing everything we can to contribute to the solution”, explained Gerhard B?hm, Arburg’s Managing Director Sales.

    The entire value creation chain explained

    The event programme included more than a dozen expert talks, each focusing on different aspects of packaging technology.

    Speakers from BASF, Borealis and Henkel showcased new materials and talked about what their companies are doing to route plastic back into the value creation chain and process recyclable materials.

    Arburg and its tool partners Stackteck and Foboha presented innovative processes, trends and machine technology designed specifically for the packaging sector.

    IML expert Verstraete demonstrated how invisible watermarks can be used to label plastic packaging with a “Digital Recycling Pass” so that it can be accurately sorted for recycling.

    Erema presented a number of its pioneering recycling projects, while Global Flow focused primarily on the disposal and re-use of secondary raw materials.

    Thorsten Kühmann and Dr Rüdiger Baunemann were also at the event to represent the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) and Plastic Europe Germany. The industry experts spoke about the challenges facing the sector in the future from the perspective of their respective organisations.

    Live demonstrations complement programme of talks

    In the breaks between the talks, attendees had ample opportunity to see selected packaging applications in action in live demonstrations. An electric Allrounder 520 A with 1,500 kN of clamping force was on hand to produce standard PP coffee capsules with a 0.02 mm barrier layer, while a hybrid Allrounder 920 H with 5,000 kN of clamping force and a 48-cavity mould manufactured coffee capsules from an organic material.

    Two hybrid machines in Packing version demonstrated high-performance packaging technology applications: An Allrounder 820 H with 3,700 kN of clamping force and the optional “thin-walled part” specification produced four IML cups in a cycle time of just 4 seconds. A hybrid Allrounder 630 H with 2,300 kN of clamping force and the optional “closures” package produced 48 drinks container closures in a cycle time of 3.3 seconds.

    In his talk, Reiner Schmid, Application Manager Packaging at Arburg, explained how these machines and the appropriate mould technology can be used to establish sustainable processes in injection moulding.

    He reported that machinery was increasingly moving towards direct measurement of internal pressure and temperature and mould breathing via inductive position sensors, which will optimise the filling process and product quality – factors that are of particular importance for new and recycled materials.

    New solutions for the circular economy

    One of the highlights of the Packaging Summit was the final panel discussion presented by Guido Marschall from Plas.TV. Gerhard B?hm (Arburg), Thorsten Kühmann (VDMA), Manfred Hackl (Erema), Prof. Dr. Hans-Josef Endres (IfBB Institute for Bioplastics and Biocomposites, Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts) and Philip Knapen (Borealis) were discussing the current situation of the packaging industry, the findings obtained during the event and future tasks.

    The experts agreed in the importance of co-operation between all those involved in the value-added chain. Gerhard B?hm also pointed out how Arburg is pooling its activities around the topic of resource efficiency and circular economy with its new "Arburg Green World" program. Examples of these will be presented together with partners at the K 2019 trade fair.
