Economical and safe
At the trade fair, around 15,000 specialist visitors from 78 countries obtained information about the latest powder, granule and bulk material technologies.
At the Lengerich-based film and packaging specialist's stand, the special PowFlex® and SmartFlex® films aroused particular interest. These are material- and energy-saving alternatives to the previously usual packaging technologies. The highly-ventilatable and sift-proof PowFlex® FFS film offers significant advantages in comparison with paper packaging, e.g. for mixtures containing cement. It is also suitable for packaging other hygroscopically sensitive products such as powdered chemicals or foodstuffs, and is additionally available in small formats.
SmartFlex® stretch hood films reliably secure bulky and heavy goods on pallets without the use of heat. This saves energy in comparison with shrink films and eliminates any risk of fire. The sustainable packaging solutions from B+K struck a chord with trade fair visitors: "Our time at the trade fair was characterised by interesting discussions with customers and potential new customers as well as machine manufacturers", reported key account manager Rolf zum Dohme. During these discussions, he ascertained that the majority of these partners were from Eastern Europe and non-European countries such as Iran, Israel and China.
