Arburg GmbH + Co KG, headquartered in Lossburg, Germany, has announced that the refurbished Arburg Technology Centre (ATC) in Radevormwald, Germany, is back to normal operations. After a two-year modernisation period, Arburg Managing Partners Juliane and Michael Hehl, together with the Managing Directors and project leads, cut the reopening ribbon.

To celebrate the refurbishment, Arburg organised an open house event attended by around 250 guests. In 1982, Radevormwald was the first Arburg location outside Lossburg. Today, it is a sought-after contact point for customers and prospective buyers from the west and north of Germany.

“Our decision to undertake a multi-million Euro investment in the renovation of the ATC not only demonstrates how important our customers and staff are to us, but also emphasises the great significance of the German market for Arburg,” Michael Hehl, Managing Partner and spokesperson for the Arburg management team, shared in his speech. “Today, you can see that the wait has been more than worth it. We’re all very proud of what has been created here: a building for the future that marries aesthetics with functionality and environment protection in an outstanding way.”

In August 2022, shortly after the 40th anniversary celebrations, the ATC was cleared and gutted. All that was left was a shell, which was then outfitted from the ground up with the latest technology. The comprehensive renovations and modernisations included installing photovoltaic and geothermal systems, a triple-glazed glass façade and efficient roof insulation. Following the renovation and thanks to the use of renewable energies, the annual primary energy requirement of the the ATC Radevormwald is around just 40% of that of a newly built reference building. The photovoltaic system alone, which produces almost 100,000 kWh a year, covers 60% of the total consumption.

Ulf Moritz, Manager of ATC Radevormwald, stated, “In the technical centre, seven injection moulding machines of the latest design with clamping forces ranging from 400 to 1,600 kN are available for our customers, for sampling, testing and training. Each is equipped with a robot system – from the sprue picker and linear Multilift robot systems to the 6-axis robot. The high-quality machine technology and equipment leaves nothing to be desired.”

The invited customers and partners took advantage of the opportunity to take in the new facilities and equipment. All seven Allrounder machines were in operation, showcasing applications live to demonstrate the wide range of injection molding products and services.
