German machine manufacturer, KraussMaffei, will be showcasing four new high-performance ZE BluePower compounding extruders at the K 2019 Trade fair- one of the most important plastic and rubber industry events.  This comes a few months after the group consolidated all its business divisions and brands into one entity. KraussMaffei, KraussMaffei Berstorff and Netstal were united under the umbrella brand, KraussMaffei. The group is also set to unveil a new corporate design at the K 2019 show, reflecting these changes.

KraussMaffei will showcase its range of products, ranging across categories such as injection moulding machines, reaction moulding machinery and plant, pultrusion equipment, spraying equipment, handling devices and more.  One of the highlights of their expo will be the showcase of the new high-performance ZE BluePower compounding extruders.

The ZE BluePower compounding extruders are the large-size version of the medium size models which were introduced six years ago. The series will be available directly after the end of the exhibition. The ZE BluePower twin-screw extruders offer a wide range of potential applications, from the production of compounds, expanded sheets, biaxially oriented film and sheets, up to the processing of recycled material. The combination of the machinery’s large free volume and high specific torque allows for the universal application of the ZE BluePower for compounding engineering plastics and highly filled formulations.

“Since its market launch in 2013, the ZE BluePower has gained a strong foothold in the market for a wide range of compounding tasks as well as for reaction and degassing applications. This series stands out for unparalleled output rates, short set-up times and maximum cost-effectiveness,” so says Matthias Sieverding, the President of the Extrusion Technology Segment of KraussMaffei. “The new series is designed for large national and international compounding companies with high production capacities where maximum reliability in 24/7 operation is a must.”

The central theme of K 2019 is the circular economy, and under this keyword, KraussMaffei will be linking its extrusion, injection moulding machinery and digital service solutions business units at the trade event.  The group is also set to unveil a closed material and production unit at the K 2019 trade fair, pultrusion solutions and much more.
