Of crucial importance are the current machine and system solutions for the economic and ecological production of bottles, containers, cans, drums and IBCs made of plastic. On the material side, we focus on three aspects: the newly developed EPET IV materials, the processing of calcium carbonate (chalk) and the resource-saving recycling of materials. A further highlight of our exhibition at the trade fair will be on the importance of spiral distributor blow head technology to increase performance.

As a pioneer in the industry, BEKUM has intensively devoted itself for years to the material aspects of extrusion blow moulding. This has been in order to meet the requirements of the target group. The packaging industry continuously tries to keep the costs on the material side under control, as fluctuations in the prices of materials can greatly affect unit costing. Likewise, functionally convincing packaging, which has been developed in a resource-saving manner, provides scope for sustainability, added value and setting itself apart from the competition through product differentiation. Michael Mehnert, CEO of BEKUM Maschinenfabriken Traismauer GesmbH: “As a pioneer and technology leader in blow moulding, the requirements and desires of the packaging industry are of crucial importance to us. It is well known that the cost of materials has a decisive influence on the calculations of manufacturers. Our energy-efficient, flexible, high-performance machine and extrusion solutions of the latest generation grant manufacturers the opportunity of improving their added value through the intelligent and resource-saving use of materials, increasing the quality of their articles and, at the same time, achieving the ambitious sustainability targets.”
