YORK, PA. — Graham Group has assembled a plastics machinery platform, and the three companies will exhibit together at K 2013 — blow molding press maker Graham Engineering Corp., sheet extrusion line builder Welex Inc and American Kuhne Inc., which makes single-screw extruders.
The three companies will be in Hall 14, Stand A54 at the K show to be held Oct. 16-23. in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Graham Engineering, an original company of the Graham Group in York, Pa., bought Americak Kuhne in the fall of 2012 and in mid-2013 acquired Welex. Graham is moving Welex manufacturing to York from Greenville, N.C.
American Kuhne ran a live demonstration of the closed-loop concentricity control at MD&M East medical-device trade show in Philadelphia in June.
"Together, GEC, AK and Welex create a convergence of leading technologies, people and capabilities in extrusion," Donald Graham said in a prepared statement. "We are excited about the multiple points of synergy for the markets we serve and look forward to adding further technologies, businesses and talent to our platform."
American Kuhne will present extruder technologies for energy savings, quick changeover and confirability.
Welex will show its Converge CTS dryerless sheet line, a conical, twin-screw extruder for dryerless sheet from PET and polyactic acid.
