Kautex Maschinenbau at the Interpack Trade Fair - High-Performance Production with All-Electric Machines and Industry 4.0 Applications
The IntelliGate modular system
The main component of the IntelliGate integration system is its modules, which are connected to the newly developed Connext interface. "This helps to make downstream processes, such as quality control processes, an integral part of the machine", explains Christian Kirchbaumer, Team Leader for Communication and Marketing at Kautex Maschinenbau. The individual modules can be coordinated on KBB blow molding machines by the Kautex experts and connected or exchanged using a “plug and play” interface .
Using all-electric machines and virtual training to increase efficiency
The all-electric KBB series, which has been in high demand since it was introduced three years ago, stands out due to its compact design, easy handling, low energy consumption and advanced quick-change systems, which facilitate the fast and efficient completion of product changes. One of the solutions provided by the series is the use of advanced extrusion blow molding heads, which significantly reduce the time needed for color changes. On top of this, the series was recently expanded with the addition of two variants for the production of blow-molded jerry cans.
Another highlight at the Kautex exhibition booth will be the live presentation of the company's latest generation of virtual machines. This tool enables users to simulate and train production processes for different types of machines and applications in real time.
A shuttle service to the main plant in Bonn
Given that the Interpack venue is located in close proximity to the company's main plant in the German city of Bonn, Kautex is offering guests the chance to use its individual shuttle service, which will take them directly from the trade fair to the Kautex factory. At the facility, visitors will be able to view a wide variety of different Kautex extrusion blow molding systems in different stages of assembly and enjoy many informative discussions with the Kautex experts.
