Kiefel: KIEFEL Extrusion presents itself at CHINAPLAS

The presence at CHINAPLAS from April 26 to 29 in Shanghai is indispensable for KIEFEL Extrusion GmbH, the German specialist in the construction of blown film extrusion lines: interested visitors will find the machinery manufacturer from Worms in Hall W2 – Stand D01. Asia’s most important plastics fair, that will take place at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, is vital for KIEFEL in Asia’s most important market. The first steps in opening up the market, that is considered to be a challenging one, were already been taken in 2004 with the sale of a new high tech 3 layer line. In 2005 the first 7-layer line for production of barrier film was sold in China. The demand for such technically demanding machines is evidence of the way the local customers will develop in the coming years: towards higher value packaging solutions!

With its very successful KIRION® range of machines, KIEFEL is optimally positioned for this development. “Whether the demand is for multi-layer film or high-end solutions, we always have suitably priced answers”, states Director of Sales Worldwide Kurt Freye. In order to be able to meet special challenges, such as FFS (Form, Fill and Seal) systems for the production and conversion of heavy duty bags, the German extrusion line specialist has several modules available, for example the Enhanced Cooling Package (ECP).

As the Chinese, but also the Asian market, will grow overall more strongly in the coming years than the European or North American markets, Freye sees great potential for his company in the Far East: “China still has a great need to catch up in investment. With the steadily increasing wealth of the population, consumption of plastics will, for example, grow more strongly than in other markets, up to at least 2010.”
