KraussMaffei Trends & Markets

High precision injection molding for inhalers
Complex mechanics place high demands on technology

They are small and often fit in any pocket. Inhalers, which make life easier for asthma patients and other chronically ill people, often have complex mechanics inside. The production of these filigree components requires a particularly high degree of precision and freedom from burrs in the process. Requirements that KraussMaffei meets. Thomas Hörl, Head of Expert Sales Medical at KraussMaffei, and Joachim Köbelin, Expert Medical Technology, explain the special challenges of medical technology manufacturing.

New plant concept for new types of flooring
Polyolefin flooring replaces polyvinyl chloride

KraussMaffei's Extrusion business unit is presenting a system concept for the production of rigid and elastic flooring solutions based on polypropylene (PP). These floor coverings, which are classified as chlorine-free, are physiologically harmless, odorless and can contribute to cost optimization due to their lower density, compared to halogen-containing materials such as PVC.
