The manufacturer of blow molding machines, Kautex Maschinenbau, is staying on course for further growth thanks to a multitude of innovative new developments. In fact, the company was able to bring 2016 to a successful close by recording record sales. According to the company's Managing Partner Andreas Lichtenauer, this achievement was the result of its successful machine lineup, its extremely innovative approach and its new high-performance blow molding machines for the packaging sector: "Our all-electric KBB series has been in high demand ever since it was first introduced three years ago." Kautex Maschinenbau is currently extending its main plant in the German city of Bonn in order to meet this increased demand. The new assembly hall, which covers an area of 3900m2 and will be officially opened in the third quarter of 2017, will predominantly be used for the assembly of KBB and KSB machines. The company is also creating approx. 80 new office workstations.

Alongside the all-electric packaging machines in its KBB series, the extrusion blow molding specialist will also present a number of potential solutions that manufacturers of bottles, containers and other plastic packaging can use to set new standards in productivity. These solutions not only include material-saving and advanced quick-change production systems, but also services that help to reduce the 'time to market'. The company's new IntelliGate integration system was also developed with the aim of increasing the process efficiency of its machines. These Industry 4.0 applications help to transform Kautex machines into a closed system for high-performance production and enable Kautex to secure its typical high level of process quality.
