Busch to showcase Mink MV, extruder degassing system at K 2016

Hall 9 Stand 9E23

Plastex BM 0280 extruder degassing system from Busch

Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems will be showcasing its enhanced vacuum solutions for the plastics and rubber industry at K 2016 (Hall 9 Stand 9E23) to be held from 19 to 26 October in Dusseldorf, Germany. In addition to the new size of Mink MV claw vacuum pump, an extruder degassing system will also be on display at Busch’s trade show stand.

With the new Mink MV series, Busch has succeeded in developing claw vacuum pumps that have a significantly lower noise level than comparable pumps in the market. They are also extremely compact and efficient. The new series operates in the same way as its predecessors, that is, according to the dry and contact-free claw principle. Therefore, no operating fluid is required in the compression chamber, which means that all associated maintenance work, such as oil and filter changes, is eliminated. Thanks to the contact-free operation, there is no wear and thereby no need for replacing wearing parts.

Mink claw vacuum pumps are used to generate the vacuum required for feeding material into extruders and injection moulding machines pneumatically. Their high level of energy efficiency and wear-free operation make Mink claw vacuum pumps the most cost-effective solution for the pneumatic suction conveying of granulates.

In principle, Mink claw vacuum pumps are also suitable for use in centralized vacuum systems, which generate vacuum for feeding material into all injection moulding machines or extruders. An additional vacuum supply offers high energy-saving potential.

Mink claw vacuum pumps have been used for degassing extruders for over two decades now. Busch’s years of experience in degassing plastic melt during extrusion, expertise in separation technology and regular dialogue with customers enables it to offer tailor-made solutions for customers in the plastics and rubber industry in addition to standard degassing systems.

Apart from Mink claw vacuum pumps, Dolphin liquid ring vacuum pumps can also be used in degassing systems depending on the material to be extruded. Subject to the vacuum level required, Panda or Puma vacuum booster can be connected downstream as well.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
