Kiefel and watttron agree on wide-ranging development cooperation
KIEFEL GmbH and the groundbreaking innovations company watttron GmbH, agree on comprehensive and long-term development and research cooperation.
The goal of this close cooperation is to develop future-oriented solutions for the industrial moulding of plastics. These will allow a currently unmatched level of quality and efficiency, especially in packaging production.
watttron's heating technology is the basis for the development goals. This allows precise heating of surfaces with the aid of square heating pixels. Each pixel can be controlled individually. This allows targeted, uneven heating of the film, and the flow behaviour of the plastic film to be optimally adapted to the desired shape. This ensures uniform wall thickness of mouldings. As a result, the processor can use a much thinner plastic film, significantly reducing energy consumption.
