> KraussMaffei – Open House: A to Z for plastic processing

Mexico, Querétaro – Mix of industries: beverave, automotive, packaging, technical applications, construction


The all-electric PX series, surface decoration with dynamic mold heating (DMH), pipe extrusion, pultrusion of profiles, and dosing of polyurethane. No other company can present such a wide range of plastics processing as the companies of the KraussMaffei Group.

The visitors at the Open House at the location in Querétaro / Mexico in July appreciated the diversity: 200 guests attended the presentations and live demonstrations.

Strong demand in Mexico

That’s efficiency: People visiting the Open House at the KraussMaffei Group Mexico could get to know the whole repertoire of plastics processing in just one day: from injection molding to reaction process machinery and extrusion.

200 guests took up the invitation, and Klaus Jell, General Manager of the KraussMaffei Group Mexico, summarizes the event with great enthusiasm: “The day was a resounding success. Our customers found the mix of live demonstrations and specialist presentations to be very valuable, and we could sense their positive and motivating mood.

At present there is great demand for machines on the Mexican market, in particular in the areas of packaging, agriculture, automotive and construction.

The three segments of Injection Molding, Reaction Process Machinery and Extrusion Technology in the KraussMaffei Group therefore showcased technologies and developments that provide the customer with solutions precisely in these areas – of course, with a little local color.

Reaction Process Machinery thus demonstrated its RimStar Compact metering machine using the manufacture of small tequila barrels, and presented the new training program in Querétaro and Monterey. Extrusion used presentations to showcase pipe and profile manufacture from various materials, as well as compounding.

First appearance for the all electric PX series

In the Injection Molding area, the visitors experienced lots of technology for precision and manufacturing efficiency. The all-electric PX series from KraussMaffei celebrated its premiere in Mexico and immediately met with great interest on account of its flexibility and modular design.

For projects with complex surface design, the dynamic mold heating of the cooperation partner Roctool offered interesting perspectives, because this process can achieve exciting effects and seamless surface aesthetics.

On an ELION 2200-1000, a classical Netstal application was demonstrated with cycle times of 4.5 seconds: circular lids with a weight of 6.6 g of the material PRO-FAX SL872NW.

The four-cavity mold was provided by the partner Stackteck. The demand for such projects with extremely short cycle times is currently growing strongly in Mexico, so the In Mold Compression-Technologie pursued by Netstal is also attractive.

The new LRX small linear robot took over the time-saving handling.

Beside the many impressions for the mind, food and refreshments were not in short supply. While the guests enjoyed the Mexican/Bavarian catering, many interesting discussions took place, and Klaus Jell looks to the future with optimism: “I am very confident. The feedback we are getting from our customers is extremely positive, and we will further expand this strong customer orientation.”
