Visit to K-fair in Düsseldorf in October 2022.

The K-fair is the most international, complete and innovative fair of the global plastics and rubber industry. This plastics fair takes place every three years.

Three main themes this year

The three main themes this year are: circular economy, digitization and climate protection. The latter concerns, among other things, the approach to reduce CO2 emissions. There were more than 3,000 exhibitors from 61 countries and 176,000 visitors from the plastics and rubber world.

New ideas and developments

The K-beurs is the place to get new ideas, network face-to-face and share innovative solutions with each other. Among the many visitors were 22 enthusiastic employees of our company. On Saturday 22 October they visited the trade fair in Düsseldorf. The group has made numerous visits to key suppliers such as Krauss Maffei, Stork, Regloplas, Koch and Wemo to delve into their latest developments.

At Sumitomo Demag a toast was made to the purchase of three new electric injection molding machines with the salesmen of Thiele & Kor. Certainly worth a toast, as we will save 69,000 kWh on an annual basis with the new machines. This amounts to 5% of our annual consumption. An explanation was also given about the latest developments at Sumitomo Demag and technical questions could be asked to their specialists. Welding machines and the latest developments in the field of energy-efficient dryers also received the full attention of the team. All in all it has been a worthwhile visit. We’ll be back in three years.
