The new easyTrace from KraussMaffei gathers all relevant production data in plastics processing and transfers them to the specific customer systems for evaluation, whether from the extruder, injection molding machine, automation or peripherals. EasyTrace thus acts as a central data hub between the individual levels of production, creates more transparency over the entire value chain and thus supports quality assurance.
Plastic packaging is the subject of increasing criticism in current public debate. The sector is responding, with many companies collectively working on innovative sustainable packaging concepts. One example involves the longstanding cooperation between KraussMaffei and Swiss mold maker GLAROFORM. At K 2019, the companies will be jointly presenting two exciting packaging applications on NETSTAL machines.
