Kurtz successful at Chinaplas 2015

Automation solutions impress visitors


From 20 to 23 May, Kurtz presented itself with it particle foam machines business division at Chinaplas 2015 in the Chinese city of Guangzhou. The annual fair is considered the most significant fair for the plastics processing industry in Asia. As was to be expected, the fair stand drew large numbers of visitors and the team from Kurtz Far East had their hands full responding to inquiries.



The main focus at the Kurtz stand was on automation – particularly in the context of overall solutions, i.e. completely engineered production systems for processing EPS, EPP and E-TPU. Kurtz has long been more than a mere machinery supplier; Kurtz is also a carrier of technology offering complete systems to its customers around the globe. By comparison with Europe, the “Middle Kingdom” and the neighbouring states are displaying major growth with all its side effects.

Saving energy and resources

China’s environmental problems are familiar from media reports, but the responsible authorities are taking action. Consequently, many particle foam processing operations are changing over from coal to gas as an energy source for steam generation, to reduce the impact on the environment. A further positive aspect for the EPS industry is the topic of energy saving: China’s cities are growing at an extraordinary rate, with an absolute boom in construction – this is the starting point for the insulation of both existing buildings and new structures. Kurtz offers it PANEL FOAMER as well as the classic block moulds for the manufacture of insulating panels. With the solutions on display, Kurtz really struck a note in the sector – many specific inquiries were recorded which now have to be worked through.
