Image By: Don LoeppExhibitors are rushing to their stands for the opening of K 2013.

October in Düsseldorf. It's time for K.

Time for technology and surprises ("Arburg to make additive manufacturing machines"). Time for an emphasis on the value of plastics ("Bayer touts sustainability goals"), and the importance of investing in efficient equipment ("'Efficiency' is watchword for VDMA's promotion").

Our show daily reporting team is here in force, and attendees and exhibitors are reading our first issue.

Watch this space for news and entertaining tidbits in the next few days.
