With the current campaign "create TransFormation" KAMPF communicates its way into the digital future. As a clearly visible sign of the transformation process, KAMPF placed the new ConSlitter series at the center of the K 2019 show presentation. The exhibited ConSlitter CTRU in the new design convinces by reducing downtimes, especially when processing small batch sizes, as well as increasing the production throughput. The KAMPF machines also offer the market comprehensive production solutions. Visitors to the K' show therefore experienced the ConSlitter CTRU slitting machine as a networked production system: thanks to the integrative platform the@vanced and the possible integration of modular automation concepts. For optimum use of the ConSlitter, KAMPF offers coordinated automation within and around the machine: roll marking systems, palletizing and packaging units, etc.
The new digital services, based on the integrative platform the@vanced, met with great interest: installation instructions, documentation and maintenance assistants are available anytime and anywhere.
the@vanced offers the possibility to network KAMPF machines, to integrate their built-in sensors and additional components and communicates with production planning and control systems as well as with external software platforms. KAMPF presented various application examples based on the integrative platform the@vanced: Communication with a production control system with the transmission of recipes for presetting slitting machine parameters and the automatic positioning of slitting and winding systems. In addition, a digital line and contrast sensor from BST eltromat was also installed in the new ConSlitter, making automatic positioning possible when the production information is transferred.
KAMPF presented the new PrimeSlitter for the first time at K'. It is based on the sophisticated concept of the Universal machines. Working widths of well over 10 m, finished roll diameters of 1,500 mm, speeds of up to 1,500 m/min are the impressive key data of the newly developed PrimeSlitter BlackLine machines. Together with the new design and color concept, the simplified machine operation with optimum accessibility and integrated safety, these features set a benchmark for primary cutting machines.
KAMPF has started a joint project with Windmöller&Hölscher and Brückner on the Digital Rolling Protocol (drp) as part of the topic Industry 4.0. The aim is to develop a common standard with which a drp can be created for each produced roll.
The Kampf Lifecycle Service team gave an insight into the future web shop at the K' using the exhibited ConSlitter as an example. Interested parties could navigate through the digitalized parts lists of the machine and inform themselves about this new tool.
Kampf LSF showed its extensive product range in special plant engineering and together with the KAMPF specialists presented the latest projects on lithium ion battery technology. Together with Kampf LSF, KAMPF is a pacemaker in the innovative process of manufacturing lithium-ion batteries and forms a competence center with many years of experience in the manufacture and processing of anode and cathode materials and battery separator films.
As a member of the VDMA, KAMPF is also actively working on concepts on the subject of 'circular economy' and showed an example of an intelligent solution for optimizing plastics recycling. The exhibited material samples are produced and made available by our customer CCL. Due to its lower density, the special material of the labels enables a clean separation from the PET flakes in order to return unmixed raw materials directly to the recycling cycle. KAMPF supports its customers in the development of such new materials and their processing through intensive consultation and test runs in the KAMPF lab.
The KAMPF team would like to take this opportunity to thank its guests. It was and is a great pleasure for us to be there for you.
