Live machine demonstrations at K 2022 and concurrent EXPO at company headquarters
“New challenges to create a circular economy, new opportunities through digitalisation, and the constant pressure to make production more efficient – the flexible packaging industry in 2022 is changing like never before. The W&H slogan at K 2022, “Get in the Loop” and the infinity symbol illustrate the way these three topics influence each other and contribute to the success of sustainability. At the K, we will demonstrate technologies and show examples that can give our customers a competitive edge in this time of rapid change”, says Dr Sascha Witt, W&H’s chief sales officer.
Manufacturing recyclable packaging solutions with maximum efficiencyAt K 2019, W&H focused predominantly on the feasibility of producing recyclable packaging solutions. In 2022, they will focus on how to manufacture these new products with maximum efficiency. "At the K 2022, once again we will present innovative solutions and show examples of specific end products. Our focus will be on particularly demanding applications, such as barrier films or packaging with an increased percentage of PIR/PCR,” says Dr Falco Paepenmüller, chief technology officer.
“Automation and digital systems for improving efficiency, such as the RUBY IoTsystem, will also be a central theme for W&H in 2022. At K 2019, we showed live demonstrations of the TURBOSTART system for automated stops and start ups on blown film lines. This year, we're going a step further by showing how automated machines can help operators boost productivity; live demonstrations will be run on the VAREX II blown film line at our booth (Hall 17, Booth A57).” Visitors will be able to see the advancements for themselves, explains the CTO.
