    Those looking for industry trends, innovations and hot topics at k 2019 won’t pass Bekum by, the Germany-based blow moulding machine manufacturer said in a recent press release. 

    Bekum is heralding the future of blow moulding with the ‘Concept 808’ machine study.

    Observers will first note the modern design of the machine’s cladding, characterised by improved functionality and ergonomics. Practical extras include large-scale safety gates, integrated variable colour LED indicators, and optional magnetic quick mould change system. With this, mould changeover is accomplished in 15 minutes per clamping unit. Particularly noteworthy is the simple and easy to operate magnetic blow pin quick change system, wherein moulds and blow pins are always changed from the front of the machine.

    A well-tuned high-output extrusion system ensures product quality. The new generation of high-output extruders of the future packaging machine line distinguish themselves through processability, maximum throughput, and excellent melt homogeneity.

    Bekum places particular importance on energy efficiency when developing extruders, which are the main consumers of energy in any extrusion blow moulding machine. Bekum extruders use energy efficient motors and drives, which are important to achieve high energy efficiency.

    Focused on the future

    The modern design of the future machine series will be enhanced via a portrait-oriented, generously dimensioned 24-inch operator panel and a new, intuitive touchscreen called Bekum Control 8.0. Visualisation of throughput values and energy consumption on the multi-touch operation panel is provided, as is the display of power, water, air consumption, and the pressures of all supplies process utilities.

    Remote on-line service, as emphasised by Industry 4.0, has been available from Bekum for many years. With permission of the owner, Bekum service technicians can log in and carry out function tests and software updates.

    Bekum is engaged in the circular economy and, with its Bekum three-layer heads, offers a solution for cost-effective recycling of single-origin PE of PP plastic scrap. Thanks to Bekum’s tri-extrusion technology, recycled material can be embedded between layers of virgin plastic materials.

    Commodore Technology, a Dolco Packaging business, will be highlighting its line of expanded polystyrene meat tray, plate and hinged-lid container thermoformers at K 2019.   

    Commodore manufacturers five different narrow web thermoformers ranging from 16-44 inches to accommodate a wide range of container and tray producing needs. Commodore sells its equipment outside of the US to thermoformers interested in low or medium output. The equipment has been designed for quick changeover, ease-of-access and flexibility. Commodore also manufacturers extruders and provides tooling for turnkey thermoforming solutions.

    Chuck Gallagher, Vice President, Business Development at Dolco Packaging, said: “What distinguishes Commodore from other thermoforming equipment manufacturers is that we actually run our equipment 24/7, producing parts that we sell into the US marketplace. Because we are equipment operators, as well as equipment manufacturers, we have used our production experience to engineer the best possible units. This means that offshore manufacturers can benefit from our 30 years of equipment manufacturing experience.” 

    Another benefit of Commodore’s equipment design is that all of the tooling (mould sets) are interchangeable across the entire line. This gives manufacturers a significant amount of flexibility. Further, the 22-30 inch-wide web enables fast changeover in less than 2.5 hours, giving smaller producers more flexibility to change container types and colours.

    Commodore equipment features an electrically-operated servo motor index. This enables control of the sheet advance via chain rails with adjustable entry guides. Furthermore, Commodore can connect remotely worldwide to any of its machines for troubleshooting.

     RIKUTEC Group, a leading blow moulding technology specialist, will showcase its high-precision, multilayer machines and fast-cooling moulds alongside a range of technical blow moulded products at k 2019 (Hall 14, Booth B13).

    The Germany-based company pursues a holistic approach with regard to products and services, utilizing its vast technology expertise and decades of manufacturing knowhow.

    Stefan Eichelhardt, Director of RIKUTEC’s Engineering Business Unit, said: “Our customers value us as a full-service provider. We cover the entire value chain from the production of raw materials, machinery and plant engineering to product design and series production of large-volume plastic containers. In addition, we offer our customers services covering all aspects of our broad product portfolio.”    

    RIKUTEC will highlight the industrial packaging industry’s first all-plastic Twin Drum which meets stringent demands of the Packaging Group 1 regulations as specified by the ADR European agency for safe storage and transport of highly aggressive chemicals.

    The blow moulded ‘tank in a tank’, which offers secondary containment, also meets UN-sanctioned approvals in Europe and US. The 200-litre Twin Drum effectively stores and transports highly aggressive chemicals in an ultra-clean environment. RIKUTEC’s patented multilayer coextrusion blow moulding technology manufactures products from 100 to 10,000-litres in a single shot.

    The company will also discuss its latest effort to tackle the plastic waste issue with the development of highly sustainable materials. RIKUTEC can use up to 100 per cent HDPE recyclate for the production of blow moulded products.  

    CEO Bodo Richter added: “The circular economy is and will remain the topic of the future. Many external factors are currently affecting the plastics industry – we, as manufacturers of machines and HDPE products manufactured by blow moulding, are trying to help shape the sustainable change in the plastics industry.”

  • SIGMA presenting SIGMAinterac at K 2019

     

     

    SIGMA presenting SIGMAinterac at K 2019

      polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    At this year’s K Show SIGMA Engineering will align its booth concept with the motto ‘SIGMAinteract – Autonomous Optimization connects departments’ and present its new SIGMAinteract.

    In a co-operation project, SIGMA will show how to use virtual DoE during the entire development process. With SIGMAinteract, results are displayed interactively and in 3D. Thus, its usage makes knowledge tangible and easy to share.

    At the SIGMA booth in Hall 13, Booth B31, this immediately becomes visible with a completely new design concept.

    Making informed decisions throughout a project requires involvement from partners in various departments. This means project data must be provided to each participant and they will need free and easy access to it. Therefore, SIGMA presents its new SIGMAinteract so that users can share SIGMASOFT results interactively and in 3D.

    Visitors can experience and use SIGMAinteract live at the booth, where SIGMA will demonstrate how virtual DoE is used most efficiently and how the SIGMAinteract tool significantly contributes to a good interdisciplinary exchange. As a demonstration, SIGMA uses the project ‘Pot Cloth’, which was realised as a collaborative project with Momentive Performance Materials GmbH, Germany, EMDE MouldTec GmbH, Germany, Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH, Austria, and Nexus Elastomer Systems GmbH, Austria.

    In this project part design and tool construction were done in parallel. Therefore, it was necessary for all partners to work closely together. Simultaneously, SIGMA conducted a virtual DoE for the validation of the part design and the evaluation of the heating concept.

    At the SIGMA booth visitors can also virtually observe the production of the ‘Pot Cloth’ live. It will be produced on a SmartPower 90/350, control UNILOG B8, from Wittmann Battenfeld. The LSR injection moulding tool, including the cold runner system, was constructed by EMDE MouldTec. The system is completed by a ServoMix X200 dosing system from Nexus Elastomer Systems. Silopren LSR 2640 from Momentive Performance Materials is used as material for the production.

  • Wilmington Machinery delivers engineering breakthroughs and increased moulding capacities

     

    polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Wilmington Machinery has built and installed two vertical structural foam presses for a customer looking for a machine more suitable than a horizontal press, but with all the advantages vertical presses provide.

    The two new large vertical type low-pressure structural foam presses accept between one and six moulds mounted and can produce one to 20 components per cycle. Each vertical press mould is filled independently and precisely by Wilmington’s proprietary Versafil injection system.  

    To meet customer demands, Wilmington re-engineered the MP800 injection unit to incorporate a first-in, first-out, reciprocating screw of 30:1 L/O and an in-line accumulator arrangement. The design maintains the ability to compound both virgin and recycled resins with various fibrous and non-fibrous additives for strength and reducing the cost of the moulded component. 

    Direct gas injection into the extruder barrel provides large part thin-wall structural foam moulding. The machine is also capable of non-foamed moulding of medium-sized parts. 

    The MP800 model retains its capability of both cold and hot runner moulds using either short shot (foam) or pack/hold moulding techniques. 

    A second complete Wilmington Machinery plastic pallet moulding system has also recently been delivered to a European customer. 

    The US-based company is inviting attendees to its stand (Hall 13, booth B91-19) at this year’s K trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.
