Kurtz WAVE FOAMER with Revolutionary Steamless Moulding Process

Kurtz' contribution to Circular Economy and its product innovation at K 2019

With the Kurtz WAVE FOAMER, high temperature resistant materials can be processed that would have to be subjected to far too high steam pressures using well-known foaming technology. Moreover, EPS moulded parts can be produced which consist of a considerably higher proportion of recycled material than was previously possible!

The advantages of Kurtz' steamless moulding technology at a glance:
  • Steamless moulding process
  • High proportion of recycled material e.g. ≥ 70 % in EPS moulded parts
  • Energy savings of up to 90 %
  • Processing of high temperature resistant particle foams – fusion temperature up to 250 °C
  • No expensive media installation necessary
Don't miss our daily LIVE DEMONSTRATIONS at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 2:30 pm and 4:00 pm!

Our team is eager to introduce you to the new Kurtz technology!

Kurtz POWerBoard - The Path to Predictive

The industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is changing our production processes and the entire manufacturing industry. Digitized processes, products and services are creating new levels of efficiency.

Act early and become a pioneer in your field with Kurtz - with the brand new digital solution Kurtz POWerBoard!

With Kurtz POWerBoard you can track down different qualities of your produced products. Apparently identical conditions are based on a variety of influencing variables. By using sensors on your individual machines and lines, plant data can be continuously collected and analysed. The overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is calculated permanently on the basis of defined parameters for quality, performance and availability. The performance of your worldwide production sites can also be compared in this way.

Less unscheduled machine downtime, more efficient utilization of the entire machine park and increased service speed are just a few of the numerous advantages for you.

How does the Kurtz POWerBoard work in detail? Which hardware and software is it based on? Further information about our solution can be given at the Kurtz booth. Let our experts advise you individually. A team of data scientists and qualified engineers is eager to talk to you!

Kurtz Pre-Expanders - Preparation is half the Battle

The pre-expander forms the basis for further processing of expandable polystyrene (EPS) or expandable polypropylene (EPP). Kurtz pre-expansion systems are the result of a consequent realization of physical processes in machine technology, intensive exchange of experience with processors and recommendations of raw material producers. Due to high efficiency and reliable quality these systems can flexibly be adjusted to all demands.

Kurtz Pre-Expanders guarantee a high degree of automation, reliable control and reproducibility as well as an evenly expanded product.

NEW PERSPECTIVES FOR PARTICLE FOAM MOULDINGS

With the WAVE FOAMER, Kurtz GmbH is presenting its revolutionary automatic moulding machine at K 2019, which opens up completely new possibilities for particle foam processing – steam-free, energy-efficient, resource-saving. For more than 60 years, little has changed in the processing of particle foams; the multifunctional beads made of EPS, EPP, EPE etc. are used as insulation panels, packaging or automotive components such as seat elements, bumper elements and roof rails. Since then, the beads have been welded with steam, which requires complex installations.

Over several years, Kurtz GmbH has developed a process based on electromagnetic waves – the WAVE FOAMER uses a steam-free process to remove the previous restrictions and open up new worlds. It can also be used to process engineering plastics with high temperature resistance. The functional principle in brief: (...) Read more in our news and come to Kurtz in hall 13, booth B27 for one of our live demos!
