A successful K 2010 exhibition

S+S very pleased with the K plastics trade fair and its results

At K 2010 S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH under the focus of "All about PET and Plastics" presented wide ranging separation and sorting solutions for the complete plastics life cycle - from primary processing through to recycling. Particular highlights were magnet and metal separators for high-performance injection-moulding machines and a combination system for PET flake sorting.

Erwin Reitberger, plastics industry manager at S+S, is highly satisfied with the K trade fair: "For S+S the economic recovery started earlier than we had expected at the beginning of the year. The K trade fair confirmed this and our resulting positive outlook for 2011. Many excellent, quality customer discussions confirm that S+S with its optimised system solutions is fully in line with customer interests. Trade fair visitors showed particular interest in our metal separators which provide high sensitivity with high-temperature versions operating at up to 200ºC. S+S systems help our customers meet extremely high product quality and process demands increasing their own competitiveness."


To match the international character of the K trade fair the S+S trade fair team also comprised representatives from international subsidiaries and sales partners, which found very positive acceptance among trade fair visitors. Eight nations were represented in the S+S trade fair team.


Peter Mayer, sorting technology sales manager at S+S, is confident of good resulting orders in 2011: "K demonstrated that worldwide there is significant demand for plastics recycling technologies. The desire to improve life cycle assessments and to make a positive contribution to sustainability by the use of recycled material, led to our major focus at the K trade fair on PET recycling. Designed specifically for sorting PET flakes S+S presented the latest Varisort Compact sorting system. Quality standards for recycled material are stringent, and market prices must be competitive compared with virgin material. S+S sorting systems with their outstanding flexibility are a future-proof investment employing sophisticated technologies providing high-purity recycled material fractions."
