Kreuzwertheim / Düsseldorf, October 28, 2016
Under the motto “AHEAD COMPLETE GLOBAL” Kurtz GmbH presented itself from 19 to 26 October at K 2016, the world’s premier fair for the plastics and rubber industry. The high number of decision-makers, the professional intercommunication between research and industry and the attractive framework programme with lectures and demonstrations made the international fair a unique experience with a high market value.
The entire production process at a glance
On an exhibition area of just under 200 m2, the market leader of machinery for particle foam processing underlined its leading technological position with innovative Industry 4.0 solutions which constantly keep the entire production process in mind. With attractive exhibits, a robot cell in live operation, a filling injector maintenance station and a mobile control station system, the Kurtz Team demonstrated that it is “Industry 4.0 READY” right across the board, to improve the customers’ production processes.
Among the Kurtz K highlights were the Kurtz ROTO FOAMER shape moulding machine with handling robot, which can differentiate between damaged and perfect moulds during the demoulding process – an important aspect in quality assurance. Of course visitor interest was attracted to the machines on display such as PRO FOAMER and ROTO FOAMER. To at least the same extent, the focus was also on the Industry 4.0 features, with which Kurtz simplifies and augments the entire production process, leading to greater efficiency and increased productivity. The Kurtz i-CAP filling injector system which ensures the highest machine availability was particularly well-received. Visitors were also able to test the Kurtz Remote Service 4.0 for themselves – with the augmented-reality smartglasses, the customer’s field of vision is transferred to the service technician, so that he can optimise the parameters in real time and 24/7 and eliminate existing faults.
Visitor numbers at Kurtz fair stand significantly increased
The Kurtz Team looks back on a successful fair – the high visitor numbers at the Kurtz fair stand at K 2013 were significantly increased once again this year. During the entire eight days of the fair, the Kurtz fair team catered to a constant stream of visitors – with numerous exciting discussions. A real magnet for visitors was the after-show party on Monday evening where the whole particle foam branch got together in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the many regular customers and new potential customers from both Germany and abroad, the high level of interest from South America was remarkable. Kurtz CEO and CTO Kurtz Ersa Group, Uwe Rothaug, is very satisfied with the K Trade Fair: “Our participation in the fair in Düsseldorf was a complete success! With our innovative Industry 4.0 solutions, we have set a clear benchmark as market leader in the processing of particle foams and presented our entire solution competence to trade visitors in high-calibre consultations and sales pitches. General Manager Kurtz Particle Foam Machines Harald Sommer, is more than satisfied: “We are returning to the Spessart region loaded down with direct orders and inquiries – the coming weeks in the fourth quarter are going to be sporty!”
