At Chinaplas 2023 we will present advanced and robust machine solutions engineered in Germany, made in China.

In line with this year´s Chinaplas focus "A Brighter and Shared Future, Powered by Innovation", Kiefel is demonstrating the new SPEEDFORMER KMD 90 Smart steel rule cutting machine - engineered in Germany and made in China. The model is equipped with state of the art features and options, processing various materials for the packaging industry. Furthermore, new solutions for the appliance industry - also engineered in Germany and made in China - will be shown. Visit us at booth 10Q21 in Hall 10.

Combining innovative strength - a German-Chinese success story

In a live demonstration, visitors can experience the performance capabilities of the brand new SPEEDFORMER KMD 90 Smart. It is the world premier of this new Kiefel machine and is available for sales in China and many other countries. It is engineered for the efficient production of food and non-food plastic packaging e.g. trays and containers, made from PET, PP, PLA, PS, PE or recycled plastics. The machine is 100% made by Kiefel and combines proven German technology with Chinese local manufacturing benefits, made in the Brueckner Group top-notch factory in Suzhou, China. Of course Kiefel´s worldwide engineering standards and quality processes are applied in the SPEEDFORMER KMD 90 Smart, guaranteeing a high level of satisfaction for the customers. It complements the smaller KMD 78 Smart which was shown at Chinaplas 2021.

The high degree of automation and the sophisticated, time-saving tool change system are as much part of the mature concept as the steel rule cutting and the integrated stacking station. Additionally the highly productive machine comes with a forming area of 870 x 920 mm, a tool dimension area of 890 x 940 mm and can produce formed parts with a height of up to 160 mm. The machine is efficient and sustainable, e.g. through the film temperature measurement with closed-loop control or drives with energy recovery system.

New: Appliance solutions made in China

Kiefel is also underlining its presence in China with its new machine solutions for the appliance industry. From now on Kiefel is building SHARPFORMER KID 1.250 Smart machines in China: This Inline Thermoforming Machine for the flexible production of HIPS and ABS refrigerator inner-liners and door-liners utilizes vacuum-pressure forming technology for more demanding shapes and higher production speeds. The KID 1.250 Smart can produce side-by-side products with one mold.

Following Kiefel’s strategy dedicated to the Chinese market, the KID 1.250 Smart is also engineered in Germany and assembled in China, Suzhou. As the offer is already very well received by Chinese customers, further machine types for the refrigerator industry will be successively offered according to the same concept, engineered in Germany and assembled in China. Chinese and Asian customers in particular therefore benefit from shorter delivery times, even faster spare parts availability, as well as competent and swift local support from the Kiefel team in China.

The Kiefel team looks forward to welcoming visitors at booth 10Q21 in Hall 10.
