Hennecke GROUP at the K 2019: 160 years’ combined experience in polyurethane processing
K 2019, Düsseldorf 16 - 23 October, stand B63 / hall 13
The K trade fair is the most important global show for the plastics industry, bringing together key industry trends and cutting-edge developments. As one of the world's leading suppliers in polyurethane processing, Hennecke is renowned for its innovative technologies and state-of-the-art systems. At this year’s fair, the three strong brands of the Hennecke GROUP are together presenting an array of newly developed machines and systems technology and an advanced generation of high-pressure mixheads – clear evidence of the GROUP’s combined 160 years of polyurethane expertise.
This year’s K trade fair marks the first European appearance of the Hennecke GROUP with its extensive global network and three strong brands Hennecke Polyurethane Technology, HENNECKE-OMS and Hennecke Roll Forming Technology. The 470m2 stand documents the history of these three pioneering brands and their exciting future as the Hennecke GROUP, as well as presenting the GROUP’s extensive product portfolio which includes the metering machines and sandwich panel lines of HENNECKE-OMS S.p.A. as well as the roll forming lines of Hennecke Profiliertechnik GmbH.
As the market leader in continuous slabstock foam solutions, Hennecke will be presenting the foaming portal of its brand new, compact SMARTFLEX continuous production line which boasts a range of newly developed features. Visitors will have the opportunity to take an exciting virtual tour of the modular-built SMARTFLEX and explore Hennecke’s cutting-edge technologies, including the new Block-Shape system, which efficiently regulates the slab growth and results in less waste, the space-saving paper guiding system with the new MIXGUIDE deflection plate, the high-pressure mixing technology using new SMARTJECTOR combi-injectors and the new process data recording system FOAMWARE.
Virtual reality also takes center stage in the presentation of the new MT-A mixhead generation, which provides for the best possible mixing results with optimized high-pressure mixing technology and also scores points for its service life, handling and cleaning. The first two derivatives of the new series will be shown live at the trade fair, displaying their unique features through a virtual "x-ray view" of the inner workings of the mixhead.
Hennecke’s innovations in digitalization can also be seen in the area of after sales. The GROUP’s 360° SERVICE will present its fully revised service portal featuring a broad range of comprehensive support services based on a state-of-the-art digital infrastructure.
Visitors to the stand will also be introduced to the latest additions to the Hennecke GROUP’s extensive metering machine portfolio. The JETLINE from HENNECKE-OMS is a compact metering machine designed for wet compression moulding (WCM) applications and will occupy a special market segment which is gaining increasing importance. The EL and CAL are both highly reliable, low-pressure elastomer casting machines. And last but not least, Hennecke's market launch of the ELASTOLINE HP for highpressure processing of elastomer casting systems.
An integral part of every Hennecke trade fair appearance is also the wide variety of sample parts from customers from a wide range of applications. The products on show at this year’s K fair provide remarkable evidence of Hennecke’s technical expertise. In addition to the large number of interesting utilization examples, visitors can look forward to seeing an application for insulating large pipelines using polyurethane spray coating.
