Milestone: One Hundredth Allrounder for Weißer + Grießhaber
- Celebratory: Managing Director Reinhard Fauser takes delivery of milestone machine
- Sophisticated: Two-component Allrounder for automotive parts
- In partnership: Arburg machines for over 50 years
Weißer + Grießhaber GmbH, based in Mönchweiler, Germany, specialises in high-precision, small plastic parts manufactured in large quantities and with a high degree of automation. The family-owned company has been relying on Arburg injection moulding technology for over 50 years. In October 2022, a very special event in the decades-long, successful cooperation took place: the ceremonial handover of the company’s hundredth Allrounder.
“Arburg covers the entire technology spectrum with its precise and reliable Allrounder injection moulding machines and also offers very high service quality,” said Reinhard Fauser, Managing Director of Weißer + Grießhaber. He also cited Arburg’s innovative strength and technical advice as well as the stability and dependability of a family-owned company as additional reasons for the successful partnership spanning more than five decades.
Two-component Allrounder for gear teeth and transmission parts
Reinhard Fauser came to Lossburg to receive the milestone machine together with Tobias Trippel, Head of Equipment Construction + Industrial Engineering, Kai Hartelt, Equipment Planning and Frank Wiedmaier, Head of Purchasing.
“We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Arburg and working together to solve challenging problems in the field of injection moulding in the future,” said Reinhard Fauser as he took delivery of the electric two-component Allrounder 520 A with a clamping force of 1,500 kN and injection units in sizes 290 and 70. The machine is equipped with OPC UA interfaces, enabling it to communicate with all peripheral equipment and PDA/MDA systems. The new Allrounder will be used to produce gear teeth and transmission parts for prestigious automotive suppliers.
Over a billion parts per year
Weißer + Grießhaber is a family-owned business that was founded in 1969 – the same year that its successful cooperation with Arburg began when it purchased its first Allrounder. Today, the company’s machine fleet features Allrounders from various series covering a range of clamping forces from 250 to 5,000 kN. The machines are used to produce over one billion parts per year, with the majority (around 60 per cent) going to the automotive industry. More than 50 per cent of these parts are exported.
The company has a broad product portfolio covering gear teeth and transmission technology, hybrid and multi-component technology, micro-filters and thin-wall technology, lenses and optical parts, as well as assembly and automation technology. Weißer + Grießhaber has a workforce of 310 employees and generated turnover of 55 million euros in 2021 with series production and in-house mould and equipment construction.
