KraussMaffei’s Pioneers!Talks Off to a Flying Start

The Pioneers!Talks by KraussMaffei went down a storm after more than 400 participants signed up for the digital customer event in the middle of February.

Experts from KraussMaffei and partners presented current trends and solutions for Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) processing and medical technology. Live chats and surveys followed by Q&As allowed the participants to actively engage in the event.

Every part a good part – Sustainable coffee enjoyment with LSR

The first PioneersTalk dealt with the specific challenges when processing LSR. With the fluctuating viscosities of the material, “every part is a good part” is an ambitious objective, but the keynote speakers showed how it can work. Using the example of a reusable lid of a coffee-to-go cup, the KraussMaffei experts, along with the mould maker ACH Solution, demonstrated how simple and safe the processing of the demanding material LSR can be. The special feature here is that two different versions of the lid are formed in one mould in one shot on an injection moulding machine. The APC plus machine function provides valuable support with the fluctuating material viscosities, particularly, for example, with changing colour metering.

Plastics in medical technology – Valuable assistants not only in times of Covid 19

The second Pioneers!Talk “Plastics support healing processes” addressed the topic of medical technology which is currently in high demand. The experts provided an insight into current trends and demonstrated the solutions KraussMaffei provides to respond to these developments. Furthermore, the keynote speakers showed what fascinating projects have been realised in the extraordinarily difficult environment of recent months and how reliable, fast service can also be guaranteed in times of lockdowns, home office, and travel restrictions. Another topic was traceability, the full traceability and documentation of data, which is essential, particularly in medical technology.
