Complex turnkey system LSR/LSR wristwatches

ARBURG is a pioneer in liquid silicone and multi-component injection moulding and looks back on many years of turnkey expertise. Production of LSR/LSR wristwatches will be showcased as as a benchmark for what is currently possible using LSR processing. A hydraulic two-component ALLROUNDER 570 S fully automatically produces two bicolour wrist straps made from the LSR materials Silopren 2670 (hardness 70 Shore A) and 2630 (hardness 30 Shore A) in a cycle time of 70 seconds. Assembly of the wristwatch takes place within the injection moulding cycle, by means of a linear MULTILIFT V 15 robotic system. It removes the wrist straps and sets them down in a cooling station and then in an assembly station. Here, they are fitted with the watch housing and a ready-to-use clasp.
