Chinaplas 2023 Focus on blow moulded final plastic products of highest quality
At Chinaplas 2023, Kautex Maschinenbau will focus on final plastic products. Under the motto “Experience the Difference”, visitors to booth 2C31 will learn how the company enables customers to produce final plastic products of the highest quality.
The booth of Kautex at Chinaplas 2023 is a visual statement of the company’s “Final Plastic Product” philosophy. “For us, the plastic product of highest quality of our customers is in the foreground, not the producing machine,” explains Geoffrey Chan, CEO, Kautex Asia. “We are convinced: First, we must talk about our customers' product in order to then talk about the production solution. Only by understanding our customers’ real needs and product, we can satisfy them sustainably and in the long term. Furthermore, we act in accordance with our corporate vision, philosophy and mission. With the final customer product of highest quality at the center, we create leading change and added value.”
Innovative and sustainable – virtual presentation of production solutions
The motto “Experience the Difference” further refers to the way Kautex presents its production solutions: At the booth, visitors can experience 19 different production solutions — via innovative virtual reality and augmented reality technology. “Regardless of whether a customer is interested in producing bottles, jerry cans, IBCs, liners or even kayaks,” says Dimitri Zhang, CSO, Kautex China. “We can show each customer exactly the production solution that is interesting to them in an innovative way. So, we don't just show a physical machine, we show the right machine for the customer.”
Sustainability vision and mission presented
Furthermore, visitors can learn at the Kautex booth about the company’s sustainability vision and mission. In its sustainability vision, Kautex Maschinenbau sets itself the goal of providing its customers with the best possible support in making their products better and more sustainable. The mission is focused on actively driving the establishment of the circular economy, always in line with the corporate mission, which states creating leading change and added value. Specific projects at the booth show how the company is putting its sustainability vision and mission into practice.
R-Cycle is an exemplary project in which the manufacturer is actively involved in establishing the circular economy. With the help of a digital product passport, recycling-relevant information is already recorded during the production of a plastic product and stored in the R-Cycle database. During recycling, this data can in turn be read out for optimal reuse. The pilot projects that Kautex has undertaken as part of the R-Cycle initiative can be seen at the booth.
Another project — in cooperation with Braskem — successfully demonstrates that upcycling of post-consumer waste (PCR) with appropriate measures leads to ever better results. The compounds used were successfully processed at the Kautex Technical Center into monolayer blow molded products. Braskem's material was used to make a children's watering can.
