EPS Pre-Expander

The pre-expander forms the basis for further processing of expandable polystyrene (EPS). Due to high efficiency and reliable quality these systems can flexibly be adjusted to all demands.

Economic Advantages:
The demands of processors for shorter cycle and intermediate storage times as well as legal requirements in specific countries have lead to the development of fast cooling and low-pentane materials with only 3-4% pentane content.

AHEAD COMPLETE GLOBAL
Reduce Cycle Times by 50% And Save More Than 50% Energy

The Kurtz GmbH, world market leader for foam machines, presents at the K in Düsseldorf lots of innovative solutions for the processing of particle foams. Under this year’s motto for the fair “AHEAD COMPLETE GLOBAL”, Kurtz is presenting its range of services. One focus will be on software solutions – be it virtual commissioning, intelligent process control or central management system.

Matching its ranking, the Kreuzwertheim resident company presents the potential of its foam machines at the world largest plastic fair with a 200 m² trade fair stand (Hall 13, stand 13B27). Alongside favourably priced production and optimisations in handling, possibilities of process improvement are demonstrated, also with a view to efficient and responsible dealings with energy and resources.

Energy savings of more than 50%, halved cycling times and the implementation of innovative production technologies enable the user to an immense increase of efficiency and sustainable resource conservation. Naturally, there will also be Kurtz machines in live demo operation. Visit us at our stand and experience out innovations from close by.

-  ROTO FOAMER with robot handling in live demo operation
-  PRO FOAMER (EPS/ EPP processing) with Motion Control
-  Live experience of Kurtz CM 4.0 remote maintenance of machines and production plants
-  Remote Service 4.0 - problem solving by Augmented Reality
-  Filling injector maintenance by intelligent i-CAP (autonomous counting of maintenance intervals, avoidance of machine downtime)
-  Robot autimatisation
-  Comprehensive solutions for foreward-looking manufacturing plants, from pre-foamers, shape moulding machines and block moulds, up to cutting lines
