Aluminium China – The aluminium family will meet in Shanghai

Aluminium-Familie trifft sich in ShanghaiThe aluminium family will meet for the Aluminium China 2015 in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre between July 8th and 10th. For many companies within the industry it is one of the most important opportunities to meet with customers, suppliers and friends. Of course the sales team of Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik GmbH will be present at the fare, same as in the previous years. We invite you to come to our booth in hall N1 – booth 1E10 within the “Made in Germany” pavilion.
We are planning to present our machines, technologies and latest developments in regard to slitting and winding of aluminium foil and sheet.
The Trimming and Recoiling Line – TRL for aluminium sheet with a thickness up to 2 mm stands for highest productivity.
The Centurial slitter is dedicated for slitting aluminium sheets up to 500 µm, such as fin-stock and container-stock as well as litho materials. Three sizes with rewind diameter 1250 mm, 1650 mm and 2100 mm are available.
Duplomat and Sepamat are the first choice for foil doubling and foil separating before or after the last rolling pass. When it comes to choose the ‘right machine’ the KAMPF Sepamat family with four different sizes and specific options, offers the right sized solution for individual specifications.
Machines from the Unial series are used for slitting foil into narrow cuts. Even thinnest, annealed foils can be processed under production conditions.
The demand for quality control within the foil production is steadily increasing. One of the main quality criteria of a good aluminium foil is the density and size of pinholes. With the possible integration of a state-of-the-art pinhole detector into all our Sepamat models, we offer quality control in-line. With laser technology it is possible to detect pinholes as small as 10 micron even at speeds of 1200 m/min. With such a pinhole detector you will not only have the possibility to control the foil quality, but also receive information about the source for such defects. To prove the quality of your foil to your customers you will have a consistently documentation of your foil production.
The sales team of Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik is looking forward meeting you at the Aluminium China 2015. If you would like to receive a voucher or want to fix an appointment, you are welcome to contact our Hong Kong office at +852 2882 1136 or mail to kampfhk@kampf.com.hk.
See you in Shanghai …

Nanshan and KAMPF signed for five new machines

Production of Sepamats at KAMPF assembly plantDEAL! Five new machines will be installed by Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik GmbH within the new foil plant of Longkou Nanshan Aluminium Rolling New Material Co. in Longkou, Shandong Province, PR China.

Recently Nanshan and KAMPF signed a contract for the supply, installation and commissioning of one foil doubler, type Duplomat and four foil separators, type Sepamat 10. All machines are equipped with KAMPF latest drive and control technology combined with software to exchange all relevant process data with Nanshan MES system. Redesigned automatic handling systems for fastest loading and unloading of new coils and finished rolls ensure highest productivity. Later upgrade with quality control units such as pinhole detector is planned.

The five machines are part of the Nanshan expansion project for the production of additional 40,000 t/a thin aluminium foil.

After several detailed discussions between experts of both companies in the project phase the decision for the KAMPF package was made not only because of the right-sized technical solution for the demanding expectation of Nanshan’s project team but also due to the trust in a trouble-free realization.

Both companies share a successful partnership for more than 10 years. Installation and commissioning of the machines will be in spring 2016. With a total of 13 machines, Nanshan will be one of the biggest installation sites of KAMPF’s state-of-the-art finishing machines.

KAMPF rates the Chinaplas‘15 extremely positively

Das erfolgreiche Chinaplas-TeamIt couldn’t be better
The organizers recorded the four Chinaplas days from May 20 to 23 as a great success. The number of visitors has risen again significantly compared to previous years – more than a quarter of the visitors came from overseas.
The KAMPF booth at the Chinaplas which took place in the Southern Chinese city Guangzhou (always in alternation with Shanghai) was very well attended on all days. The talking points covered the entire products and services of KAMPF. Of particular interest was the machine portfolio for battery applications. The professionals of this rapidly growing industry convinced themselves of the KAMPF references which to date has quite an excellent set of machine for battery foil in production to quote.
KAMPF is completely satisfied with the result of the exhibition; new projects, numerous contacts and particularly pleasing the signing of several contracts for the supply of converting machines for the Chinese market which succeeded all expectations of the KAMPF team.
After a successful exhibition we want to thank all our visitors for their interest in our products and the good expert talks we had.

KAMPF included in the „Lexikon der deutschen Weltmarktführer“

Lexikon der deutschen Weltmarktführer Deutsche StandardsKAMPF included in the „Lexikon der deutschen Weltmarktführer“

As part of the annual congress „Summit of World Leaders“ on January 27, the publishers Dr. Florian Langenscheidt and Prof. Dr. Bernd Venohr presented the new edition of the “Lexikons der deutschen Weltmarktführer”. They have selected companies who have developed an excellent market position with their products on the global markets.
Kampf Schneid- und Wickeltechnik GmbH & Co. KG as the world’s largest manufacturer of slitting and winding machines was also included in the lexicon. The decisive factor was the comprehensive product portfolio, which includes in addition to the slitting and winding machines, winders for the manufacturing and finishing processes as well as related services e.g. service packages and handling systems. The comprehensive portfolio and the high quality standard distinguish KAMPF as world leader.
“German world market leaders stand for quality and technology leadership, „emphasized Dr. Florian Langenscheidt. However, this is rather unknown to the general public. The lexicon documents how companies have managed to world leadership through innovation and performance. The first copy was given to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, one day before the premiere. On this occasion, he contributed a greeting to the new edition of this standard work. It said: „The success of German world leaders is the result of more than a keen sense of market opportunities and outstanding innovations. Reason and responsibility and long-term orientation – these are the values which guide the actions of these companies and them an excellent reputation”.
