Plastics Live, running July 5-6th in Coventry, is attracting many high-profile exhibitors at what is being described as the most innovative event for forward-looking plastics manufacturers.
Among the exhibitors present will be Gunther, the UK/Ireland agent for 4 German companies which will be showcasing valve gate and side gate systems from Gunther Hot Runner Systems, standard and special mould components — including collapsible cores ‚ from KNARR, fully machined bolsters from Ferrofacta, and a highlight will also be conformal cooling solutions from Contura-MTC.
Reiner Heendeniya, Sales Director at Gunther says, “We will be at Plastics Live as we want to support the UK tooling and moulding industry and hope that customers will do likewise. Events like this are important to showcase your products, make new contacts, and meet established ones. Innovation is key to our presence at the event. Gunther we will be showing the most energy-efficient hot runner nozzles on the market, very important with the energy price hikes at the moment. We will also show Gunther’s patented bi-metallic shaft technology and replaceable inserts for valve gate systems. From Contura, we will show parts made with the Rapid Heat Cool (variothermal) process which eliminates weld lines and sink marks and also gives a high gloss finish on premium moulded parts.”
“Very important for us is that we must resist the ‘Plastic is bad’ mantra and promote all the benefits that plastic products bring to the world. We see a growth in the high tech and medical markets generally as well as developments in the packaging sector. I feel the market for bioplastics will increase greatly over the coming years and Gunther has done a lot of work with suppliers to prove we are able to work with these materials.”
