Bonn/Dusseldorf - At the K 2007 show, Kautex Maschinenbau announced that it would continue to focus on consumer packaging. Six years later, the result of this project is now presented at the K 2013. With the new, all-electric KBB series, the company presents a pioneering machine concept that sets new standards in the packaging segment.

Industry 4.0 with BC Connect
But the development of new machine models is not the only reason why the leading manufacturer of blow molding machines is a trend-setter in the industry. Kautex Maschinebau also introduces real innovations in the areas of Industry 4.0 and service to visitors at the international trade show. The best example of this is the remote monitoring tool BC Connect. This is web-based software that allows processors to conveniently access their blow molding machines via the Internet. Current performance data can be called up from anywhere in the world at any time via desktop, tablet PC or smartphone.

Virtual machines
Kautex Maschinenbau presents another highlight of the fair as well as genuine progress in training and education with its newly developed virtual machines. These are simulations in which the control and operating interfaces correspond to the real machine. All triggered processes and production runs are displayed in a simulation program. This allows staff to be trained to work with the machine, and the new configuration to be tested without risk, without needing to take the machine out of production.
