Positive result for Kiefel at Interplastica 2019 – Increasing importance of energy efficiency and recycling
The CIS market for plastic and rubber products stands for solid business and positive prospects also for Kiefel. The packaging segments are growing steadily, and the medical/pharmaceutical industry of the largest European country with a population of 145 million is facing major challenges.
“In this situation, innovative solutions for all areas of the plastics and rubber processing industry are very much in demand, particularly because issues such as energy efficiency and recycling are becoming increasingly important. There is still considerable need for investment in Russia, with production capacities being expanded and modernised”, reports Dr. Alexander Noskov, Managing Director at OOO KIEFEL, Saint Petersburg.
And Kiefel also sets new trends in cup-forming when it comes to speed and performance. The Thermorunner KTR 5.1 Speed cup forming machine leaves nothing to be desired. It is at home both in mass production and in niche products; intelligent technology combines perfect forming quality with high production speeds.
The packaging industry paid also attention to Kiefel’s latest automation module for the KMD Speedformer series. The thermoforming specialists have launched the SpeedPacker. The SpeedPacker is a buffering and unloading station that is fully integrated into the steel rule cutting machine. Buffering is key to reducing personnel requirements and achieving tremendous cost savings.
Another item discussed at the show, for the medical technology sector in this case, was Kiefel’s filling machine for infusion bags. The advantage of the new filling technique used lies in its compact design and highly-precise functioning procedure. The filling unit is part of an innovative machine concept for the manufacture of bags for medical use, designed to occupy minimum floorspace, while delivering high output rates.
Also a number of projects in the automotive industry sector for manufacturing interior components, have been discussed intensively and above all Kiefel machines attracted with best efficiency.
We wish to thank all visitors and business partners for their interest in our products and the fruitful discussions we had at the common booth of the Brückner Group at Interplastica 2019.
