At K 2019, Sikora, a manufacturer and worldwide supplier of advanced measuring and control technology, will present a broad portfolio of innovative systems for quality control and process optimisation for hose, tube, sheets and various other plastics industries.

Visitors have the option of bringing along plastic pellets for a live and on the spot inspection and analysis with the laboratory testing system PURITY CONCEPT V.

In the ‘Innovation Corner’, visitors are cordially invited to contribute their ideas regarding measuring technology for hose and tube, as well as other plastics applications. The appearance of the Bremen-based company at K promises pure innovation.

With the world premiere of the CENTERWAVE 6000/1600, Sikora will present a measuring system with a new dimension. Developed especially for quality control of plastic tubes and pipes during extrusion, the CENTERWAVE 6000 is based on innovative millimetre wave technology and measures continuously and completely over 360 degrees of the circumference of the pipe.

Sikora’s PLANOWAVE 6000 is a non-contact measuring system used for non-destructive thickness measurement during sheet extrusion. The system measures sheets made from POM and PEEK.

PURITY CONCEPT V is an optical laboratory testing system for plastic material. An automated light table inspects materials through a colour camera.

Hilger Groß, Business Development and Area Sales Manager, said: “Our customers can personally convince themselves of the precision, speed and easy handling of the system.”

A further highlight at Sikora’s booth is the PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED for optical online inspection and sorting of plastic material, which combines X-ray technology with up to four black and white and/or colour cameras.

For a high material throughput, the sorting system is available as a ‘Twin Pack’ solution, which will be presented for the first time at K.
