If you’ve ever had the misfortune to stand on a Lego, you’ll know how incredibly painful – not to mention indestructible – those little bricks can be. This impressive combination of durability and impressive tensile strength, not to mention the glossy finish, is due to its construction from ABS, a thermoplastic polymer widely favored for injection molded consumer goods.

Innovative lightweight construction: Arburg developed the fibre direct compounding (FDC) injection moulding process in cooperation with the Kunststoffzentrum SKZ. Fibre length and fibre content can be individually adjusted during in-process material preparation.

• VDI congress: Arburg participates as exhibitor and with a presentation

• Lecture: Efficient production of high-strength components using fibre direct compounding (FDC)
• Research projects: Economical and resource-friendly lightweight construction
