INTERPLASTICA 2012 - Moscow: Perfect integration of a new innovative Inline Stacking System


Yogurt cups, drinking cups, cups for use with snap-on lids or plant-pots, KIEFEL’s Thermorunner KTR 4 SPEED Cup Forming Machine combines intelligent technology, perfect quality and optimum production rates with low costs. KIEFEL will be at INTERPLASTICA 2012 in Moscow, Forum FB 46.

With the perfect integration of the new innovative Inline Stacking System, BEST 78/40, KIEFEL also sets new trends when it comes to automation. In the specific area of tilting machines, reliable and future oriented down-stream concepts enable the automatic processing both of cups and other moulded components.


This cost-efficient and wear-free stacking system is food qualified and constitutes an important and successful advance for use in high-speed production processes.


The vertical stacking technology ensures perfect roundness and lightweight design of cups even at high speed production. The stacking technique works without any brushes and rubber parts. There is no abrasion. It’s a perfect solution for food-packaging with highest hygienic standards.

Even complicated designed parts can be stacked. A flexible tool-configuration allows G, H, V, W-layouts, optimizing cavities and low film utilization. It also allows using of existing forming tools.

A future-oriented Video control system, Simotion supplied by Siemens, is used. It’s an integrated system for positioning control and SPS directly at the drive system and allows minimum cycle times with best functional results due to coordinated fast and precise multi-axis movements.
