The K Was Sensational
VDMA Plastics and Rubber Machinery Association draws positive balance of the world’s leading trade fair K in every respect
The plastics and rubber machinery manufacturers are drawing a very positive balance: K 2022 was the first international plastics trade fair to be held as a regular attendance event in the wake of the Covid pandemic. “It was very important for the industry to finally come together again. The relief at being able to meet and exchange ideas in person was palpable everywhere during the entire eight days of the fair,” said Ulrich Reifenhäuser, Chairman of the K Exhibitor Advisory Board and Chairman of the VDMA Plastics and Rubber Machinery Association. He added that exhibitors from the machinery and plant engineering sector had been able to present their technological innovations to a broad trade audience, and close multiple solid deals. “The event was a great success for everyone,” said Reifenhäuser.
K 2022 has given a huge boost to the circular economy for plastics. The interest of domestic and, above all, also foreign trade visitors exceeded the expectations of the mechanical engineering companies in a major way, which, in addition to their trade fair stands, presented their innovations specifically for the circular economy at the Circular Economy Forum of the VDMA. “With the Circular Economy Forum we have pointed the way and made a strong commitment to the circular economy. This was very well received by the visitors. The exhibitors themselves were a little surprised by the great interest on the part of the trade visitors,” said Thorsten Kühmann, Managing Director of the Plastics and Rubber Machinery Association within the VDMA on Wednesday at the close of K in Düsseldorf.
For eight days, at the forum, visitors were able to see on operational machines what is already technically feasible today as well as what will be possible in the future. The same applies to digitalisation solutions, whose important groundbreaker is OPC UA, the world language of production. The networked factory is more in demand than ever, because it is necessary to utilise transparency and control options in terms of energy reduction and resource efficiency. The technologies exhibited at K 2022 have demonstrated this potential in an impressive manner.
