The Sumitomo (SHI) Demag team will aim to put Industry 4.0 into a practical context for plastics processors.
Under the banner ‘Electrified 4.0’, five machines will be actively running on the stand, demonstrating the production of packaging, caps and closures, pharmaceutical, automotive and in-mould decorated (IMD) plastic components and how these can work together with other processes and technology to form a ‘smart factory’.
In addition, K 2016 will be the world premier of a new IntElect platform, plus three injection moulding partnership installations developed in collaboration with Sepro, Yushin and ONI.
UK Managing Director, Nigel Flowers, said the company’s presence at K will provide “practical examples on how Sumitomo (SHI) Demag is already assisting moulders to optimise future production processes in the context of Industry 4.0”
