For the 15th time – KAMPF at Aluminium China

For the 15th time – KAMPF at Aluminium China

As every year, the Aluminium China Fair is the most important meeting point of the Asian aluminium industry with manufacturers, manufacturers and international suppliers of the industry. Since the first Alu China 15 years ago, this has also been a fixed date for the KAMPF sales team. Film manufacturers from China, India, Japan and Korea informed themselves about the latest product developments of KAMPF and its partner companies Thiel & Hoche (winding cores and rolling mill coils) and E.D.S. srl (pinhole detection) at the booth within the German pavilion. Especially the new AluSlitter from KAMPF is the focus of many discussions. The special requirements on aluminium foils for the production of lithium ion batteries are the basis for the development of the AluSlitter. The modular design allows the integration of different inspection and web cleaning systems. Here, the team has recorded some new contacts and projects, which will be pursued further in the coming weeks.

Converting 4.0 – Networkers met in April

 

Already for the 3rd time the delegates of the member companies of the Converting 4.0 network founded by KAMPF came together. From April 10th – 11th INOMETA GmbH had invited as host to Herford this time. The company produces roller tubes, winding cores and web guiding rollers, raster rollers and pressure adapters as well as versatile functional coatings. More than 60 specialists from the converting industry accepted the invitation and a lively exchange took already place at the come together meeting on the evening of April 10.

The organisation team asked the participants about their problems in the field of digitalisation and translated them into clear tasks for the following day. For this purpose the so-called problem framing was used.

The second day started with the opening by Lutz Busch, managing director of KAMPF, and with speeches by Holger Garbrecht, Cedric Tappe and Christof Schotten from AVANCO /INOMETA. After a keynote speech by Oliver Fläskämper on the subject of blockchain, the KAMPF Industrie 4.0 team presented news from the network.

As an introduction to the workshop part an impulse lecture followed on the topic “Innovation and Design Thinking” of the company Innodrei from Solingen.

After a break with many interesting conversations and new insights into the world of lightweight construction and coating technology, the individual group work started.

In seven different theme workshops, the participants discussed current issues such as: Digitalization in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), process data communication along the value chain, more effective cooperation in the network, the path to digital culture and others.

For the development of the solutions three hours were available in which the six phases of the Design Thinking method were consistently run through. Oliver Kruggel and Felix Heuer, cultural architects of Innodrei, accompanied this intensive experiment actively.

“The Design Thinking Speed Challenge inspired us, because you were all open and agile about the innovation process. The energy and passion in presenting your prototypes must now be put into practice together – according to the motto “Just do it”, Felix and Oliver summed up.

The feedback from the participants was consistently positive. Their common conclusion: “In times of change we need stable networks, like our Converting 4.0 network, which make innovations possible and thus shape the future in a forward-looking way”.

The next event at Windmöller und Hölscher in Lengerich is planned for mid-November.

2019 got off to a successful start for KAMPF’s good long-standing relationship with Fujian Billion High-tech Material Industry CO. LTD. Fujian Billion invested in four new BOPET lines and again relies on KAMPF for its slitting and winding technology. After challenging negotiations, the contract between KAMPF and Fujian Billion for the supply of four Universal 89/12 slitting machines was signed. The slitters will be delivered in the middle of 2020.

In 2018, the successful film manufacturer ordered two Universal 64/14 TF for use in the production of optical films from KAMPF. Their delivery to China will take place in the 4th quarter of this year. These slitting machines are equipped with exclusive equipment, e.g. high-quality chrome rollers, which meet the high quality standards of Fujian Billion.

Fujian Billion High-tech Material Industry CO.LTD. was founded in 2011 by Billion Industrial Holding Limited. The company is one of the largest Chinese manufacturers of polyester films (BOPET). The products – functional polyester films – supply the high-quality domestic market and are used in packaging, complex printing, electronics, apparel decoration and more.

Between 2012 and 2014, Billion had already installed six high-performance KAMPF machines – four Universal 89/12 slitter, one Unislit II 630 and one Unislit II 635 – which reliably produce the highest roll quality.
