Visit to the K trade fair in Düsseldorf

Right on time after three years, the plastics trade fair will be held again this year in Düsseldorf from 19 to 26 October. The ›K‹ is the world's most important trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry and celebrates its 70th birthday this year. More than 3000 companies from 60 countries present innovations for the efficient and responsible use of plastics. Our partner KEB and some of our customers will also be there. In addition to Brückner, Kistler and technotrans (gwk), new user interfaces from our company will be on display, especially at Erlenbach and KraussMaffei. Erlenbach is using the fair to present its new ›E.HMI Connect‹, a user interface for processing particle foams, for the first time. At KraussMaffei, the HMI ›pioneer processControl‹ will be on display. Initially developed for the Extrusion division, the user interface has now also been adapted for the Additives division. With the new developments ›powerPrint‹, the manufacturer launched an impressive large-format printer for the extrusion of plastic granulate on the first day of the fair. At the same time, the ›precisionPrint‹ system was presented, which offers extremely high throughput rates and qualities for automated production on an industrial scale using stereolithography. Both products are also operated via the user interface ›pioneer processControl‹. The project is thus developing into a corporate UI and will represent the group-wide standard in the future.

All projects can be seen at the fair up to and including Wednesday.
