Newly-developed THERMORUNNER KTR 6

A “high speed” cup forming unit combines intelligent technology, perfect quality and optimum production rates with low cost. KIEFEL will present its new automatic pressure forming machine, the “THERMORUNNER KTR 6” at the K’07, hall 3, stand F 92


Power plus, with forming area of up to 750 x 450 mm. The THERMORUNNER KTR 6 is the top-of-the-range model of the THERMORUNNER series consisting of the KTR 3, KTR 4 and KTR 5 machines.


A larger forming area allows a larger number of cavities to be handled. As a result of the higher speeds of all movement sequences, the KTR 6 provides a considerable increase in output and an optimum cost-efficiency of the investment made.


Processing PP with a 50-up cup-forming tool will be on demonstration at the K show.


As each customer’s needs are different, the KTR 6 is designed on a modular basis. This means that it can be extended meet requirements as they arise. A perfect integration of the innovative Inline Stacking System KIST 75/54, also newly-developed by Kiefel, makes the KTR 6 a reliable partner with a fascinating speed of all operation sequences.


Faster and more precise movements for manufacture of packaging parts

The pressure forming machines KMD SPEEDFORMER are well known on the market for a high-speed production and perfect positioning procedures. Sophisticated machinery design, innovative drive technology and the SIMOTION Control System of Siemens make this possible. At K’07 the KMD 78 SPEEDFORMER, with 760 x 540 mm forming area, will demonstrate processing of PET with a tray tool.
