Plastics processing

Expertise meets torque

High-torque drives are needed to tackle the short cycle times and the enormous forces used in the production processes in plastics processing. Hydraulic components have mostly been used for this purpose up to now. These are anything but energy-efficient, however. The solution: compact electromechanical drives by AMKmotion. Drawing on the expertise of our sister company ARBURG, we cluster the functions of the injection moulding machines and integrate the drives deep in the machine so as to make optimum use of the space available. You benefit from efficient machine design, powerful drives, a high degree of flexibility and fast startup for product adaptations.

Quick startup

Thanks to the use of a real-time field bus our electromechanical components can be installed quickly and easily.

Efficient machine design

Our compact drive solutions allow compact machine design and require a very small amount of space in the switch cabinet.


Modular design and intelligent power output grading ensure flexibility and facilitate expansion.
