Kautex Maschinenbau GmbH will present a new model in its KCC series of extrusion blow molding machines at Chinaplas, April 25-28 in Shanghai, at Stand F 41, Hall E1.
That is the third generation of the KCC series, which has produced in Shunde, China, since 1997. Kaurex officials said it represents a complete relaunch of the KCC series, which has been redesigned with a more compact footprint. Better accessibility makes the blow molding machine easier to service, and speeds up any retrofitting work. For example, molds now can also be changed from the side, and products are discharged from the rear of the machine.
Greater use of standard modules and components has reduced the investment costs of the new KCC, and also shortened future delivery times, according to the company.
Mark Lueddecke, vice president of Kautex in Shunda, said the company plans to introduce the new generation of KCC blow molders on a gradual basic, until the switchover to the entire KCC range has been completed,
“We offer KCC machines for all kinds of consumer and industrial packaging applications, as well as for the automotive sector,” Lueddecke said. “This high degree of flexibility is precisely why this machine series has enjoyed continued success for almost 20 years.”
Also at Chinaplas, Kautex will unveil its new KSB suction blow molding machine—which was specially designed for low-waste production of three-dimensional blow molded parts. The big application: heat-resistant plastic ducts for automotive.
Kautex is based in Bonn, Germany.
