During Chinaplas 2012, customers and visitors will have the opportunity to see for themselves the efficiency and competence of the KraussMaffei Group at the production plant in Haiyan and experience a live demonstration of locally produced machines and systems. The doors of the subsidiary will be open to customers and interested parties from 14.30 to 16.30 on both April 19 and 20, 2012.
"Especially on the rapidly expanding polyolefin pipe market, we are ideally equipped to cope with the requirements from the Chinese market thanks to the long-proven 36D single-screw series", emphasized Wayne Xu, Product Manager for Extrusion Technology at the Chinese subsidiary of the KraussMaffei Group. "Our colleagues from the head office also provide us with the best possible support; we can therefore offer our customers process engineering know-how for complete line concepts designed to meet the highest quality standards", added Xu. During the "open house" event, local PP-R and PE-RT material will be processed on two extrusion lines. The high-speed systems produce hot water pipes made of PP-R for fresh water supply in a diameter range between 20 and 63 mm, as well as heating pipes made of PE-RT with a diameter of between 20 and 32 mm. "Since our own production plant came on stream more than five years ago, we have been producing, for example, the key components of both systems, the KME 60-36 B/R singe-screw extruders and the KM-RKW 32 spiral distributor pipeheads from the Performance Series. We therefore fully satisfy the requirements of the Chinese market", enthused Alex Sun, Plant Manager for Extrusion Technology at the subsidiary of the KraussMaffei Group in China. "As from now, we offer our customers complete pipe extrusion lines with all downstream units from local production. We are therefore setting new standards in terms of quality and performance", continued Sun.
Also on view will be the locally manufactured KM-VT 1200/3/16 vacuum tank and the KM-SB 1200/9 and KM-SB 1200/6 spray baths.
KraussMaffei will show industry professionals a machine, i.e. the MX 850-6100, from the successful large machine series produced in China. In future, machines in the clamping force range from 8500 to 40000 kN will also be produced at the plant in Haiyan for the Chinese and Asian market. The MX Series is specially designed for hard continuous operation and represents a very compact and powerful production system which combines short machine times with quick cycles and high molding output. The Series has a modular design and can be flexibly adapted for special production requirements. "Our special solutions in injection molding machinery and high efficiency with innovative strength were the main factors in the last few years that allowed us to successfully establish ourselves on the Chinese market", said Michael Müller, General Sales Manager for Injection Molding Machinery at KraussMaffei. "KraussMaffei stands for top machine quality, technical and user-oriented innovation, and reliable service." The MX Series from KraussMaffei is now successfully positioned in many industries throughout the world and has set standards, especially in the automotive industry. MX swivel plate and compression molding machines for multicolor television frames and windshields are just as successful as standard machines or production cells for combined processes using injection molding machinery and reaction process machinery, for example SkinForm or ColorForm.
