Hennecke at Fakuma 2011

(PresseBox) (Sankt Augustin, ) Everyone who is anyone could be seen at the 21st international trade fair for plastics processing that took place at Friedrichshafen's exhibition centre from 18th to 22nd October 2011.

Featuring 1,670 exhibitors from 34 countries, an overall display area of 85,000 square metres and over 44,000 visitors, Fakuma broke new records and observed its 30 anniversary in style.

Hennecke GmbH, a leading supplier of PU processing technology with a wide range of systems and comprehensive applications know-how, was among the exhibitors displaying innovative and pioneering technologies.

Apart from high-tech applications and current developments in processing technology, the company, which enjoys the reputation of being an innovation locomotive in the field, presented the new version of its WINTRONIC control system in its exhibition of sample parts.

Visitors were especially interested in the fact that conventional control elements have been replaced by a touchscreen operator panel that features a much better user surface, as well as up-to-date hardware. This does not mean that users can no longer benefit from typical advantages such as shot logging and the export of data to external storage media. A live demonstration highlighted a MICROLINE production system for processing transparent PU systems. Hennecke's exclusive system partner for PU technology, ENGEL Austria GmbH, used the system at its stand to produce a centre console for the automotive industry.

There was also a clear and practical demonstration of how a thermoplastic base support can be combined with veneer elements in an injection moulding process. The PU coat protects the part from mechanical and chemical influences, and produces astonishing surface effects. The additional integration of a capacitive film means that in future cars will have playful and elegant display panels just like smartphones. "The technology convinced us" or "The part's surface is brilliant" were just two of many positive remarks.

Overall, the Hennecke management was very satisfied with the trade show appearance that was characterized by high visitor numbers and a great demand for customized solutions. The fact that Hennecke was able to conclude a sales contract is yet more proof of its success at the trade fair.
