The majority of fairgoers who made their way to us in Düsseldorf to inform themselves particularly about production solutions associated with elastomers and plastics in connection with the topic of fiber-composites were from Western European countries. The new stand design which presented WICKERT solutions as contemporary and convincing was well received.
In line with the trend to energy savings, we presented a fully electric press at the K 2013 event for the first time. This press design is not at all new for us. Today, in view of increased energy consciousness, this development is assessed quite differently. We are curious to see the extent to which the "electric” elastomer presses will conquer their market shares. In any case, we are no newcomers to the know-how required for this drive solution.
