NPE 2015 in Florida

KHS at the largest plastics trade show in the USA – NPE 2015 in Florida

Dortmund, February 23, 2015 - From March 23-27 KHS will be exhibiting at the largest trade show for plastics processing in Orlando, Florida, in the USA: NPE 2015. In North America KHS will be presenting innovative systems and services for the manufacture, filling and packing of plastic bottles.

Bottles & Shapes™ program for premium packaging One focus of the trade show booth will be the Bottles & ShapesTM program from KHS Corpoplast, one of the world's leading providers of stretch blow molders for PET bottles. Through this program the company gives its customers advice and support throughout the entire production process - from the initial idea for the plastic container through its development to the market-ready bottle.

In the close collaboration with a customer's marketing and technology departments economical, ecological and functional aspects are always a prime concern. These include the innovative Plasmax process whose barrier technology protects products against premature vitamin loss and ensures a pure, unadulterated taste and longer shelf lives. The aim of these joint development activities is to produce premium plastic packaging which satisfies the highest market requirements and quality demands.

Pioneering and award-winning Direct Print Powered by KHSTM
One of the featured innovations is the direct digital printing process for PET bottles. This is marketed by NMP Systems GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of KHS GmbH. Direct Print technology leverages co-developed low-migration inks for PET, producing brilliant CMYK + white process decorations on PET bottles. By doing away with labeling material, new or amended designs can be quickly and flexibly adapted to meet market demands. Here, standard labels are a thing of the past, greatly reducing production and transportation costs and saving on natural raw materials. Digitally printed PET bottles are 100% recyclable.

To the point with sustainable multipacks
In addition to the direct digital printing process KHS will be presenting a revolutionary technology for multipacks in the form of the Nature MultiPack™, which is also marketed by NMP Systems GmbH. In this process dots of special adhesive are used to simply stick containers together, providing the beverage industry with a packaging system which is exemplary in its sustainability. Compared to packs wrapped in film the Nature MultiPackTM requires up to 85% less packaging material and saves up to 67% energy during production. For its pioneering overall concept, consisting of Direct Print Powered by KHSTM printing technology plus the Nature MultiPack™ packaging system, NMP Systems GmbH recently won the internationally coveted German Packaging Award 2014.

The KHS trade show booth (number 26157) is in South Hall at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, USA.
