Buyer profile

What is their business?

Kautex Maschinenbau is a manufacturer of extrusion blow molding machines. Our pioneering technologies and services have allowed us to be one of the leaders of the plastics industry for more than 80 years. Our clientele in a wide range of industry sectors have come to rely on the knowledge and experience of a brand that stands for both quality and reliability.

We make products for a wide range of automotive, consumer and industrial packaging as well as special applications. With our machines you can produce the following articles: body care and cosmetics bottles, detergents, lube oil and chemicals bottles, pharmaceuticals, IBC and drums, jerrycans, fuel system, tanks, composite pressure vessels, watering cans and toys.

What are they looking for?

We are looking for solutions to process PCR (Post Consumer Regrind) on our full electric blow molding machines in a stable process. As a solution we consider the addition of an automatic screen changer to our machines. This screen changer would enable our customers to process sustainable materials. In this way our customers would fulfill the requirements of the packaging strategy and would make a significant impact.

Previous solutions of automatic screen changers had been built too large to fit and worked with a maximum melt pressure of 350 bar. Our extruders work with max. 450 bar, which should be the goal for a new solution. Furthermore our machines are fully electric and the solution should not contain hydraulic parts.

This challenge is a part of the Sustainable Packaging event organized by NRW.International, NRW.Europa, Kompetenznetwerk Umwelwirschaft NRW and kunststoffland.NRW. Please find a link to the official challenge here.
