High-quality consumables from the experts
For you as a line operator it is imperative that your production processes run without a hitch. The consumables used play an important role here. If the quality is not up to scratch, this can greatly impact the production process, causing problems or downtimes on the line. This in turn can have serious consequences, including delays in delivery, faulty goods and thus high additional costs. So that you are best equipped to ward off any such eventualities, we can help by providing KHS consumables which are perfectly tailored to your individual needs. When procuring consumable goods it makes sense to rely on high quality rather than buying in at the lowest possible prices which are mostly associated with inferior quality that could later have a negative effect. We thus offer you personal consultancy and high-quality products from one source to ensure that your line runs reliably in the long term. Your benefits in brief:
- High line availability
- Long-term time and cost savings through reliable production operation
- A local service team who provide advice quickly and can help with queries or problems during production.

Label glue for PET containers
The label is of prime importance in product presentation, packaging and marketing at the point of sale. It is a key factor influencing the decision to buy and must attract the consumer’s attention in a matter of seconds. Messages need to be easily recognized and designs should be attractive. For a perfect general appearance it is also essential that the label is precisely positioned at the designated place on the container. This is done with the help of suitable glues and adhesives.
These play a particularly important part with PET bottles as regards bottle-to-bottle recycling and the quality of the recovered PET flakes. In order to generate the required pure polymer flows, all unwanted substances must be removed during the recycling process. This involves a number of mechanical and chemical process steps. It is therefore of benefit if label residue and glue can be easily separated from the PET flakes, thus removing all impurities.
This allows the PET flakes to be reused in the processing and packaging of food for a genuine closed loop that also ensures that the percentage of this recyclate is further increased.
KHS provides you with a selection of glues for PET containers that have been specially certified for this recycling process. By using one of these, you opt for a high-quality, economical and reliable adhesive that also cuts emissions and saves on resources.
Our portfolio not only includes the full range of KHS lubricants; it is also distinguished by a detailed consultancy program customized to your requirements. This gives you an optimum maintenance concept with service plans for the bearings, gears, drives and motors in operation throughout your entire production system. Since June 2017 all KHS lubricants are also certified by NSF International; this means that they meet all hygiene requirements, even should they unexpectedly come into contact with product. You can thus use your KHS system in conjunction with KHS lubricants in the full production process. KHS lubricants also meet the strict requirements laid down by Jewish and Muslim regulations. The respective kosher and halal certificates document that also in this respect the maximum possible degree of product and food safety is ensured. KHS lubricants are relevant to the entire KHS line and machine portfolio.
