Kiefel is a German specialist in the field of thermoforming. In a recent interview with CPRJ at CHINAPLAS 2019, Reinhold Plot, Head of Communications, KIEFEL GmbH, said: “For us, packaging is the most important sector at the moment. Over 50% of our turnover was from the packaging sector.”

As introduced, the company is dedicated to offering one-stop turnkey solutions and the customers are supported in every aspect concerning packaging solutions from a single source: from material and product development, sample production to the installation of complete production lines with thermoforming machines, tools and automation equipment.

Packaging solutions produced by Kiefel's machines.He observed that the most significant trend in the packaging sector is circular economy. Recycling is certainly the main topic for plastics players nowadays, especially in China, he said.

“More and more Chinese companies are showing interest for the investment in plastics recycling. For example, on the second day of CHINAPLAS, we signed a contract with Guolong Recyclable Resources Group in China. Guolong is one of the first Chinese companies significantly invests in circular economy with its PET recycling project.”

As said, Guolong has purchased six thermoforming systems from Kiefel - five KMD Smartformers and a KTR 6.1 Speed. The machines will produce Guolong trays and cups made from recycled PET.

“For Guolong, this represents the first step into a sector undergoing strong growth. In China, extensive government decisions are forcing the implementation of recycling and sustainability,” he noted.

At the booth, the Speedformer KMD 78.1 Premium compressed air forming machine was a magnet for visitors.At the company’s booth, the Speedformer KMD 78.1 Premium compressed air forming machine was a magnet for visitors. It comprises of a film unreeling station, a heating station, a forming station, a cutting station and a stacking station.

The machine on display demonstrated the production of PP takeaway trays made with a 12-cavity mold. A sealable thermoformed lid was also produced on a KMD, completing the tray to provide a cost-effective and safe container for take-away soups or other liquid takeaway food.

“The machine is good for Asian markets, in particularly in China, where consumers like to order food delivery or take their food from restaurants,” Plot said.

In addition, the KMD 78.1 Premium is used for the manufacture of packaging products made of (R)PET, PP, PS, CPET, OPS, PLA, PE and others. It provides reliable stacking options and optimal material distribution, which are the basis for the high quality of the molded parts.

He further explained how Kiefel’s thermoforming machines help to save materials. “With our machines, customers can now create thinner product design and achieve better materials distribution. So there is a huge potential for saving materials and cost. It is also a way to avoid waste and contribute to a more sustainable future.”
