RIKUTEC Group Showcases Multilayer Blow Molding Machines and Technical Products at K 2019

Petrochemical industry | 09 Aug 2019 | Polymerupdate.com
RIKUTEC Group, a leading blow molding technology specialist, will showcase its high-precision, multilayer blow molding machines as well as high-quality, fast-cooling molds, and a range of technical blow molded products at the K 2019 exhibition (Hall 14/B13) which runs Oct. 16-23 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

RIKUTEC pursues a holistic approach with regard to products and services, utilizing its vast technology expertise and decades of manufacturing know-how, according to Stefan Eichelhardt, Director of RIKUTEC’s Engineering Business Unit. “Our customers value us as a full-service provider, explained Eichelhardt. “We cover the entire value chain, from the production of raw materials, machinery and plant engineering to product design and series production of large-volume plastic containers. In addition, we offer our customers services covering all aspects of our broad product portfolio.”
RIKUTEC will highlight the industrial packaging industry’s first all-plastic Twin Drum which meets the highly stringent demands of the Packaging Group 1 regulations as specified by the ADR European agency for safe storage and transport of highly aggressive chemicals. The blow molded “tank in a tank,” which offers by design secondary containment, also meets UN-sanctioned approvals in Europe and U.S. Department of Transportation regulations. The 200-liter Twin Drum effectively stores and transports highly aggressive chemicals in an ultra-clean environment for a range of industrial markets including the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries. RIKUTEC’s patented multilayer coextrusion blow molding technology manufactures products from 100 to 10,000-L in one shot.

The company will also discuss its latest effort to tackle the plastic waste issue with the development of highly sustainable materials. Depending on the application and customer requirements, RIKUTEC can use up to 100% HDPE recyclate for the production of blow molded products. When recycled incoming goods are used and are to be included in production, the raw material consists of 100% post-consumer waste. RIKUTEC produces material not only for its own use but also supplies the market with HDPE pellets for pipe and sheet extrusion; blow molded drums, containers, and tanks; and for injection molded articles.

“The circular economy is and will remain the topic of the future,” said Bodo Richter, CEO and Owner of the RIKUTEC Group. “Many external factors are currently affecting the plastics industry - we, as manufacturers of machines and HDPE products manufactured by blow molding, are trying to help shape the sustainable change in the plastics industry.” Not only is generally recycled plastic used in production, but customers~ rejects are also returned to the product cycle as high-quality regranulate, with properties that are comparable to virgin plastics in terms of stability.

RIKUTEC manufactures industrial packaging such as intermediate bulk containers (IBC) for storage of high-purity and sensitive liquids. It also produces large-volume container series for the environmental sector, such as containers for rainwater utilization or liquid energy sources. RIKUTEC’s custom molding operation includes containers and tanks that meet special customer requirements. “For more than 30 years, we have been offering our customers the highest level of know-how in the field of blow molding machine construction - made in Germany,” said Sven Seeger, Chief Sales Officer for RIKUTEC Group. “In recent years, we have also used our knowledge in the areas of construction, product design, and mechanical engineering to be able to offer our customers highly individualized products. For this purpose, we have founded the very successful business unit "Custom Molding," which has been supplying our customers with individual technical plastic solutions for years.”
