Distribution agreement LK injection moulding machines come to Europe
Germany — On the occasion of this year's Kuteno Kunststofftechnik Nord (plastics exhibition in Northern Germany) and in time for K 2022, Andreas Bexte, Bexte Kunststoff-Technik -BKT-, Essen, presents details of the cooperation agreement with LK IMM Europe, Travagliato, Italy.
According to an agreement signed at the beginning of April 2022 Bexte Kunststoff-Technik -BKT- will distribute injection moulding machines of the Chinese brand LK Machinery in the German market. BKT will also take care of the commissioning and follow-up services such as technical support, training, maintenance, wear and spare parts supply for the machines manufactured in Ningbo and Zhongshan.
The LK/BKT agreement list those IMMs for which both partners have evaluated most promising sales potential in Europe: e.g., the servo-hydraulic toggle Potenza (800 to 10,000 kN clamping force), the all-electric Elettrica (1,000 to 6,800 kN) or the High-Speed Lena-HS, (2,000 to 4,000 KN) which is particularly suited for mass production of parts for the packaging industry, for medical devices and pharmaceutical components. “By K 2022, we will have further expanded our presence in Europe, fol-lowing the BKT model, and defined the European sales and service network more closely in order to also intensify business with multinational companies,” says Luigi Tondi, Sales & Business Development Director of LK IMM Europe, with registered offices in Travagliato near Brescia, Northern Italy.
Furthermore, the delivery programme offers two-platen machines (Forza 4,500 to 70,000 kN), multi-component IMMs, type Varia (1.300 to 20.000 kN), as well as the smaller Lena (500 to 4,000 kN clamping force).
