The entire range of plastics manufacturing there is to discover in the long-Academy in the industrial park Klause. 50 exhibitors from all over Europe are 18 Engelskirchener Plastic Technology Day (EKTT) traveled the Overather Barlog group, which was long a resident of Angels Church Loope.
The focus of the meeting industry at the Schlosserstraße are twofold: the exchange of the latest innovations and a platform to socialize, as explained host Peter Barlog. “We have deliberately avoided a stiff event,” says the managing director Barlog.
energy costs are a big issue
Drum he sits at the opening of an experiment including explosion rather than a speech. While his colleague Christian Schumacher still processing liquid nitrogen to strawberry ice cream, lure outdoor EKTT of the new developments.
the example of a smart phone shell patented by Barlog granules is presented. For ferrite, the French company injected trillion with representation in Wipperfuerth initially an IPhone cover. The trays are initially labeled invisible with a magnet. To make visible the inscription that is finally task of Hans Vogel. The Empire Hofer coats the plastic part with a magnetic paint also – whose components combine with the magnet in the plastic, the pressure is visible. To the finished product, it was a real community project, says Bird with a smile.
The recruitment for the sector has, however, Wilfried Holberg goal. “6500 jobs depend alone in upper mountain at this branch,” says the chairman of plastic Initiative upper mountain (KIO), in the already 34 companies have joined the value.
Always be important for the companies and the energy costs. “Raw materials, electricity prices and staff leave little room for big savings,” says Rüdiger Dzuban from Lindlarer company ONI, the latest on new heat recovery systems for the plastics sector. To get a sense of the power consumption of an injection molding machine, visitors can try to drive one with a bicycle.
courage to think finally asks Professor Dr. Claus Matt Heck from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology In his guest lecture. He argues that the formation of much stronger materials to structures should be oriented in nature.
Certainly not the only interesting suggestion that visitors to the EKTT the evening with their take firms.
