Kiefel adhesive application technology day:
New VACFLOW laminating procedure

More than 50 experts used the opportunity to inform themselves on the new VACFLOW laminating procedure at a joint event held by Kiefel, Jowat and Hardo at Kiefel GmbH's site in Freilassing on 18th and 19th September.


The topic was presented to the specialists from well-known OEMs and first tier companies in a series of lectures and impressive demonstrations.


The new VACFLOW technology is the latest result of the co-operation between the 3 companies. Sophisticated machine construction and a perfectly matched and applied adhesive provide a remarkable improvement to economics and ensure a high quality final product.


"Our close, trusting co-operation with the adhesive specialist Jowat and the actual innovation made the VACFLOW project a success. However, the devil is in the detail", reports Andreas Frisch, automotive division head at Kiefel. "We are delighted to now be ready to go into production and to be able to offer this new patented procedure to our customers."


In addition to increased process reliability of the procedure right from the start, the benefits speak for themselves. Time and cost-intensive optimisation cycles during project execution can therefore be saved and the project durations can be reduced by impressive amounts. Pre-production parts with series-production quality are available to the users quickly. The parts can also be reworked in later project phases. Using VACFLOW reduces investment and series production costs. It also reduces the weight of the completed part significantly.
