New KBB jerrycan machines for K 2016
At this year‘s K-show in Düsseldorf (Germany), the leading manufacturer of extrusion blow molding machines can be found at its usual 430 m2 exhibition space in hall 14, stand A16/18.
Never before in its 80-plus-year history has Kautex unveiled so many new machines in a single year. Following the successful presentation of the new KCC MK3 series at this year’s Chinaplas as well as the launch of new suction blow molding machines and drum machines, Kautex Maschinenbau will present its new KBB jerrycan machines at the upcoming K 2016.
Expansion of the all-electric KBB series
The new KBB200 and KBB400 models were specially developed for the manufacture of stackable jerrycans. The machine at K 2016 will be equipped with a Kautex three-layer head for a cost-efficient ReCo process. Like the KBB bottle machines presented at K 2013, the all-electric jerrycan versions are setting new benchmarks when it comes to speed and efficiency.
There is an additional highlight in the form of new, networked post-production modules so that downstream equipment can become an integral part of the Kautex machine in keeping with the “smart factory” trend.
New generation of virtual machines
Following the huge success of its introduction of virtual machines, Kautex Maschinenbau is now launching a second generation, this time with a modular concept. The new, considerably more flexible virtual machines are able to work with a variety of control systems. Virtual machines eliminate the need for training on actual machines as well as potential risks of damage. In addition, costs related to material consumption will no longer be incurred.
Open House during the trade fair
During the 2016 edition of the K event, Kautex Maschinenbau will once again be opening its doors to visitors at its nearby parent plant. Interested visitors will be shuttled directly to Bonn for a look at the blow molding machines for applications in the automotive, packaging and specialities segments.
