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.”
