EREMA: Networking creates added value – CAREFORMANCE provides enhanced efficiency and stable quality in plastics recycling
Frankfurt, 22 July 2016 – For the latest film in the series on Industry 4.0 at K 2016, Plas.TV visited EREMA in Ansfelden, Austria.
Plastics recycling must be based on a viable business model. The same criteria apply as for virgin material: efficiency in pellet manufacturing, costs and quality. With its CAREFORMANCE package, EREMA, a manufacturer of plastics recycling systems and pelletising plants, ushers its customers into a new age of recycling:
tried and tested INTAREMA recycling technology
QualityOn-Package: specially integrated sensors, allowing the MVR (Melt Value Rate), colour and moisture to be measured
re360: an MES (Manufacturing Execution System) for tracking the productivity of an entire range of machinery
Spare Parts Online: EREMA online webshop
These tools for the analysis and evaluation of process data allow maximum recyclate quality to be obtained, with manufacturing processes constantly improving and becoming more efficient. Trade fair visitors will see how this networking operates live at the CAREFORMANCE Recycling Centre at K 2016. Here the company will recycle the K fair‘s packaging waste and transfer the machine, quality and process data live to EREMA‘s stand in Hall 9.
But efficient processes alone are not the end of it. “We must work to further close the chain of recyclable material in the plastics industry. As suppliers of recycling technologies, we can see that the industry as a whole has a contribution to make. Plastics recycling already has a far more positive image. But what we need is greater readiness on the part of large brand suppliers to include products made from recycled plastics in the range of goods they offer. That will also make them acceptable to end users,” CEO Manfred Hackl is convinced.

24 member companies have already published their practical examples on Industrie 4.0 on our new website for K 2016. Now, they have a first insight of what technologies they will show. More details and more companies will follow up till the start of the exhibition. Also on the page, you will find a technology overview on Industry 4.0 in plastics and rubber machinery as well as the contributions of our Kountdown.K 2016 and Industry 4.0The VDMA Plastics and Rubber Machinery Association and its member firms have set themselves the target of bringing Industry 4.0 to life with specific practical examples at K 2016. They want to make the sector aware of which Industry 4.0 technologies are already successfully being used today for improving production efficiency in plastics and rubber machinery manufacturing and to highlight the advantages for their customers.With the series of films entitled “K 2016: Der Kountdown läuft!“ [“K 2016: the Kountdown has begun”] they will in the months between now and the start of the fair be previewing what they plan to show at K 2016. The series is a VDMA and Plas.TV co-production. Links:
