Chinaplas 2018

Kurtz Ersa Asia Ltd. at the Chinaplas

After a two-year break, Kurtz particle foam machines took part in the Chinaplas once again in 2018. More than 180,000 interested trade visitors and decision-makers travelled to Shanghai to find out more about innovations concerning plastics processing machines, plastic raw materials and finished products at Asia’s largest trade fair for plastics and rubber. Kurtz GmbH – represented by Kurtz Ersa Asia Ltd. – presented highlights from its current product portfolio on an area of 96 m2. These included the new shape moulding machines and smart software solutions such as the intelligent filler maintenance Kurtz Injector Maintenance 4.0, the optical demoulding control Kurtz Eject Control 4.0 and the mobile Kurtz Central Monitoring System. There was a great deal of interest in the Kurtz automation solutions as well as in the new radio frequency technology (RF) for processing high-temperature materials.

The Kurtz booth concept relied on digital presentations with videos, animations and digital consultation stations, thus creating a comprehensive virtual demonstration centre. The virtual reality application of the PRO FOAMER attracted many visitors who were able to scrutinise the high-end shape moulding machine up close and from all sides. Other Kurtz highlights were ROTO FOAMER, THERMO FOAMER and the new BOX FOAMER with electric drive for the production of crates for fish and fruit. Kurtz Ersa Asia Managing Director, Bernd Schlenker, was extremely satisfied with how the Chinaplas went. “The entire Asian market for the processing of particle foams is still growing. Our automation solutions in particular were in great demand.”
