With the slogan “Creating Change Together,” Kautex Maschinenbau will demo how a newly developed extrusion head can drastically reduce the consumption of raw materials when changing color and material.
With the slogan “Creating Change Together,” Kautex Maschinenbau will demo how a newly developed extrusion head can drastically reduce the consumption of raw materials when changing color and material.

With the slogan “Creating Change Together,” at K 2019, the Bonn-based company Kautex Maschinenbau will present various technologies, such as a newly developed extrusion head that drastically reduces the consumption of raw materials when changing color and material.

Live demo of highly efficient bottle production with PCR

At Kautex’s booth, visitors will be able to see for themselves how the new generation of extrusion heads work and where the potentials for saving are.

To serve as an example, an all-electric KBB60 blow molding machine will demonstrate the production of a sustainable three-layer bottle containing PCR in live production. The materials processed are supplied by the renowned manufacturer Braskem.

To reduce the consumption of raw material, a mixture of polyethylene (I’m green) and PCR is also foamed in the middle layer. Kautex, together with the Brazilian plastics material manufacturer, selected the raw materials to achieve a significantly improved carbon footprint as an additional benefit. What’s more, the bottle has a neutral odor despite the use of PCR.

To complete the production cycle, the company Erema will recycle the bottles produced during the trade show. The location of this live recycling demonstration will be the Erema “Circonomic Centre” in the outside area where the circular economy will be brought to life for the trade show visitors.

New digital services at the Service Point

At the “Service Point,” Kautex will present its new digital solutions in customer service. With the new augmented service, Kautex customers will have the opportunity to examine machine faults together with Kautex service technicians within the shortest time possible.

Kautex has also set up a new portal for ordering replacement parts. In future, customers will be able to identify the replacement parts required for their machine online via “Kautex Spare Parts” and immediately check availability and prices, making the order process and re-ordering significantly easier.

What’s more, there is a new development for Kautex virtual machines – first presented at K 2013 – which are digital twins of machines used as simulators. The virtual machines are now interactive and require machine operators to react appropriately to changes in machine process settings.

Shuttle service to plant tour

In addition, Kautex will offer individual plant tours in the company’s Bonn headquarters during the trade show. Here, Kautex runs one of three global development centers, known as Technikum. Machines for the entire range of applications are available at the Kautex Technikum, some of which can be seen in live operation.
