“Long night of industries” at KAMPF

On June 29, 2017, the „LANGE NACHT DER INDUSTRIE“ (Long night of industries) took place in the Oberberg region. KAMPF Schneid- und Wickeltechnik participated in this event for the first time and welcomed about 100 registered visitors. The guests experienced on guided tours the modern training workshop, the technology center and the new assembly hall. In order to give the visitors an idea about slitting and winding, the moderators focused not only on the impressing machines, but also on the use of the web-shaped materials that KAMPF customers produce on the high-tech slitting and winding machines. Films made of various plastics, as well as aluminum and papers are used not only for packaging of foodstuffs and pharmaceutical products. For example, the usage of films was impressively presented by displaying a hybrid vehicle type BMW i8: in the safety glass, as a display or decorative film, and especially in the electronic components such as capacitors and the modern lithium batteries. Not imaginable without materials produced on KAMPF machines.

KAMPF Conslit to Global Films Barcelona

GlobalFilms, Spain has installed a Conslit made by the German company Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik to expand its capabilities and increase its performance. The project was characterized by a good cooperation and the strong support of the KAMPF representation Jagib S.L. in Spain. Prior to the order placement specialists from Global Films thoroughly examined a Conslit slitter in the KAMPF technology center.

Global Films Barcelona (GFE) is located near Barcelona, Spain for more than 25 years, and has had warehouses in Porto, Portugal for 6 years, and a recently opened one in Milan, Italy. GFE’s target markets are paper lamination, food, labels and overwrap industry. GlobalFilms distributes and slits films such as BOPP, BOPET, BOPA, and other products specific to each of these markets.

The Spanish company is fully “service” focused, in the meaning of offering their costumers the most reliable deliveries from single reel up to full tracks or containers. The main aims are flexibility, accuracy, capability, quality and in addition: committed service.

When GlobalFilms decided to expand the slitting department of the company all of the above mentioned criteria were considered. The Conslit slitter, which was commissioned last year in Spain, is already the third slitter from KAMPF, among them one machine with a double turret rewind system.  The machine improves GFE’s performance and quality, with high flexibility and excellent slitting quality. The new unit increases the capabilities to work with materials up to widths of 2,000 mm and parent rolls with maximum diameter of 1,200 mm. GFE’s 2,500sqm Spanish warehouse now has a slitting capacity of 1,000 MT to offer more than 300 different material specifications with a thickness range from 0.008mm to 0.5mm with almost all type of sizes and requirements.

Hopefully GFE’s customers and partners will enjoy the advantages of this high value equipment. Georg Waitz, sales manager KAMPF summarizes: “The Conslit slitter meets exactly the requirements of GlobalFilms: reliability, less downtimes, high speed and the well-known robustness especially with the widths of 2 m“.

ICE Award for innovative partnerships goes to KAMPF

A KAMPF world premiere at ICE Europe in Munich

Wow – simply amazing!

Many visitors of the ICE show in Munich held from the 21st – 23rd March agreed: It was very worthwhile to come to the KAMPF booth. They got a chance to experience live a genuine industry 4.0 product: The integrative platform the@vanced is a new instrument for increasing efficiency, not just regarding the slitting and winding technology, but the entire production process.

And the winner is …

The success for KAMPF was already evident on the first day of the show: Not only did more visitors than ever show their interest at the KAMPF booth – but also CEO Lutz Busch was able to receive the ICE Award for the “Innovative Partnerships” category. “We are very proud to receive this prize,” said the CEO of KAMPF, and summed up the message of the KAMPF-Converting 4.0 network: “Together we are stronger”.

Maik Krüger, Head of Strategic Product Management, KAMPF, was delighted to present the new platform to the visitors: “Who would not want to be well informed of the status of his production at any time? Comprehensive information provides the user a complete overview and enables him to initiate the correct measures and to read the results exactly. the@vanced makes information out of production data and from this information “knowledge” and thus in real-time. This allows the user to react quickly and to make predictions.”

Analyzes are provided in real-time, comfortably displayed – anytime, anywhere. In addition, the@vanced offers numerous smart services, which further improve the effectiveness and the processes. For example, manuals, spare parts lists, machine drawings and much more are available directly.

The transforming of KPC into the@vanced!

Already at ICE europe 2015, KAMPF had asked the specialist industry to enter into the dialogue on industry 4.0. At drupa 2016, first impression followed on the topic smart maintenance concepts and at the K 2016 KAMPF presented the prototype of the product, which was then communicated under the project name KPC.

The exhibit at the KAMPF booth in Munich, the roll doctor KRD II, was used for data production during the exhibition to enable the live presentation of the@advanced. Some well-known and innovative companies from the world of slitting and winding technology, such as BST eltromat, Neuenhauser Vorwald and Paul & Co, were part of the so-called network start-up. Their products or components are already networked in the@advanced. Dr. Donatus Weber, Manager Innovation & Industry 4.0 KAMPF: “the@vanced is a platform to link systems, machines and companies. It is important to us to inspire further people from innovative companies along the value chain here in Munich in order to share the industrial idea with us. KAMPF with the@vanced platform is open for it!”

And the hype on the KAMPF booth and the interesting conversations showed that the industry is ready for it!
