The company will showcase various technologies, from drying to temperature control, from traceability of the raw materials to solutions for industry 4.0, to provide complete turnkey solutions.

At K 2019, the new GenesysNext line will get its world premiere. This drying system is distinguished by self-adaptive technology that is now also optimised for the treatment of recycled PET. The new dryer can automatically manage the drying process by setting all the critical parameters: from the process air flow rate to its dew point value, from the residence time to the temperature, maintaining optimum operating conditions even as hourly production and initial temperature and humidity conditions of the plastic granulate vary. The innovations that this new generation machine brings include more intuitive control and improved self-regulation.

Significant improvements have also been made to the AIPC (Automatic Injection Pressure Control) technology that ensures the lowest production cost for each preform, not in terms of energy savings alone, but in terms of optimisation of the entire preform production process, with increased end product quality and reduction of rejects.

Regarding solutions for PET, at the Düsseldorf exhibition, visitors will be able to check out the new user-friendly range of instruments for analysing preform quality. These devices enable the most important parameters, such as the acetaldehyde level in preforms, to be measured in a simple and intuitive manner.
