Extrusion blow moulding specialist Kautex Maschinenbau will implement a significant modernisation and expansion programme for its portfolio of packaging solutions over the next few months.
According to the company, the portfolio will be streamlined and presented using a more modular and transparent approach in meeting future customer requirements.
The company says that the new strategy will promote the development of sustainable, smart production solutions that provide added value ‘at reasonable cost’.
Kautex Maschinenbau is expanding the portfolio in response to global customer and market requirements, said Thomas Hartkämper, CEO at Kautex Maschinenbau.
The company is strengthening its modular approach, where proven components from existing product ranges are combined with new technologies to create smart production solutions. Whether hydraulic, hybrid or fully electric, the ‘Made by Kautex’ label ensures that the same components are installed at all global production locations according to uniform quality standards. All product ranges will also be equipped with the same, smart operating system.
The initiative will take several months, Hartkämper said. “Production efficiency throughout the extrusion blow moulding process, the highest article quality and sustainability in production have priority in this measure.”
He emphasised the importance of the company’s transition towards a more partner and customer-oriented perspective, with a focus on adding value in areas including maximum output capacity, high availability, short set-up and servicing times, and straightforward operation.
“We live the new ‘BeOne’ culture throughout the Kautex Group. The global team has demonstrated tremendous passion over the last few months while doing an unbelievable job of rolling out this product initiative,” said Hartkämper.
