Circular Economy

  • Gabriel-Chemie Group counts down to K 2019

     

    Gabriel-Chemie Group counts down to K 2019

    polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Just a few weeks remain until major players in the plastics industry come together at the world‘s largest plastics exhibition in Düsseldorf.

    The Gabriel-Chemie Group will once again be in Hall 5, Booth B40 with a new booth design and numerous innovative solutions and product demonstrations. The main topics will focus on digitalisation and sustainability .

    Launched at Fakuma 2018, the custom-developed platform ‘Master of Batch’ product sector of Gabriel-Chemie was penetrated by the digital and networked world. The Smart Search Tool launched last year with ‘Master of Colours’ will be complemented this year with the extension ‘Master of Additives’.

    More disruptive developments

    A product line that enables information to be generated in plastics in a way that ensures material definitions and the identification of all individual parts, the Taggant Technology Series (TagTec) provides plastic parts with an individual DNA signature. This combination is useful for all stages of a product cycle from production to distribution. The product authentication and any security concerns are ensured by appropriate markers or ‘taggants’.

    An overview of the basic functionality of the TagTecseries and a selection of different application options will be presented alongside partners ALPLA and Wittmann Battenfeld in Hall 15, Booth C06.

    An integral part of the Gabriel-Chemie autumn presentations is the colour concept ‘Colour Vision No. 20’.The topics focus on Sustainability and Spirituality – both of which are more present than ever and unite the promotion of actual principles of responsible use, as well as the considerate handling of resources.The associated colours and materials of the Colour Vision Sustainability range follow these principles and showcase dry colour and surface impressions, which were realised on the basis of PCR and PIR polymers.

    New additives have been used that enable detectability in the recycling stream. The colour spectrum of the Spirituality Colour Vision ranges from an intense and vibrant red to a marble effect elaboration in blue.

    Detectability in the recycling stream refers to a professional solution for near-infrared-detectable and sortable thermoplastic masterbatch colours. The masterbatch is made using special pigment formulations that enable the correspondent sorting and recycling. Food contact approved and laser markable, the masterbatch can be extruded, blown or moulded. Interested visitors will acquire detailed information and can convince themselves of the application functionality.

    A laser additive masterbatch enables the contact-free, permanent marking, labelling and decoration of plastic parts without ink or solvents. A marking can be made on soft, coarse, stepped and curved surfaces and is abrasion-, chemical- and lightfast-resistant.

    Laser additive masterbatch enables customised designs and personalised markings. Perfectly suited to complex and rapidly changing layouts, this makes it the most sustainable alternative to all conventional customisation methods.

    Therefore Gabriel-Chemie continues to build on its close co-operation with beLaser and will demonstrate the partnership at K in the form of a separate laser area.

    Sustainability Strategy

    As a second-generation owner-managed family business, Gabriel-Chemie is one of Europe’s leading masterbatch producers after almost 70 years. A long-term and sustainable strategy is therefore a priority that focuses on delivering high quality and innovation.

    Sustainability has been a strong focus for Gabriel-Chemie. Responsibility and awareness pave the way for the group into the future, with upcoming generations adding their voices to the drive for sustainability.

    In addition to the NIR-detectable product range, group-wide initiatives include PCR masterbatches, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), awareness, circular economy and recycling, brand identity and personality.

    KraussMaffei will continue its technological pioneering in the preparation and reuse of recycled plastics at this year's k trade fair .

    Packaging products fulfil their purposes quickly, so KraussMaffei has asked why can they not be used as raw materials for new high-tech articles in the automotive industry? At K 2019, the company will be demonstrating how a bucket can become a premium panel of an A-pillar with an overmoulded fabric surface. A ZE 28 BluePower twin-screw extruder makes this possible by upcycling the material.

    Under the keyword of the circular economy, KraussMaffei is linking its extrusion, injection moulding machinery and digital and service solutions business units at the trade fair.

    KraussMaffei as an enabler

    Edelweiss Compounding is intended to make on-site compounding more attractive to recycling companies and plastics manufacturers. Matthias Sieverding, President of the Extrusion Technology Segment at KraussMaffei, said: "We view ourselves as enablers of the circular economy for our customers so that they can be successful as part of this economy. KraussMaffei is aware of its responsibility and, as one of the world market leaders, wants to occupy a leading role in the areas of recycling, upcycling and recompounding of plastics."

    Both in extrusion and injection moulding, the third participating KraussMaffei business unit at the K trade show, Digital Service & Solutions, will be showcasing products such as APC Plus (Adaptive Process Control) and DataXplorer.

    APC Plus monitors the injection moulding process and adapts it to balance interference factors such as fluctuations between batches and in climate. In injection moulding, this is done via the internal material database and the online analysis of the melt viscosity, as well as by adjusting the holding pressure changeover point and level, even within the same cycle. In extrusion, the melt temperature, pressure and screw speed are recorded. 

    The DataXplorer makes a detailed view of the depth of the process possible because it is capable of storing up to 500 signals every five milliseconds. 

    All data resulting from this is routed to the new data system, which is being introduced at K 2019.

    Digital services help ensure the quality of production and products, prevent rejects, and thus also contribute to resource-conserving production. 

     KraussMaffei is enhancing its joint effort with partners and customers to develop new business units regarding the reuse of plastics.

  • Starlinger has circularity in the bag

     

    Starlinger has circularity in the bag

    polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    At K 2019, Starlinger & Co. Gmbh is presenting a closed loop system for big bags made from woven polypropylene . The sustainable concept ‘circular packaging’ will be Starlinger’s main theme at K 2019 as well as at the Starlinger Open House in Weissenbach, Austria.

    Worldwide, more than 380 million four-loop big bags are sold every year, which equates to an annual recycling potential of around 800,000 tonnes of material.

    Starlinger will be introducing K show visitors to an elaborate concept for a closed loop for big bags. A closed loop has the advantage that production occurs within a quality assurance system, and the materials used are documented in a ‘material passport’. In co-operation with Louis Blockx and LC Packaging, Starlinger has simulated this loop and produced new big bags from fabric with high rPP content.

    Samples are available at K show and prove that Starlinger rPP big bags show the same quality as big bags made from virgin material in terms of tensile strength, weight, and safety.
