What can you expect in 2016?


At our company Sikoplast, Heinrich Koch GmbH, there will be two anniversary this year:


-The company will become 60 years

-The MD & owner, Mr. Fritz Bufe will celebrate his 70th birthday


There are very limited companies, which are dealing since the commercial use of plastics also in the field of recycling. There are no doubts: Sikoplast belongs to these “pioneers”.


Mr. Bufe shares with his continuous engagement definitely a big part for the reached success, but, he will step back –due to his age –from the functional business and will hand over the skills into younger hands. The followed generation is meanwhile also rich in experience, means : already many years in the business.


People, who know Mr. Bufe may already assume, that he definitely will not retire completely, but will be still a contact partner as advisor.


What news can be reported in that anniversary year?


-It goes without saying, that Sikoplast will join the coming K-show in Duesseldorf, on the same hall, on the same place, means : hall No. 9, booth No. A 74.(October this year)


-What kind of machinery will be shown there is not yet decided, however, known is, that it will be a further development of the well- known SIKOREX series, means : the direct extrusion series, which will come without re-granules production.


-Further research & development are concerning the well accepted Pelletizing units, means the air, water ring & under water systems, especially in respect to the processing of EPS / XPE, foam recycling, as well as Melt Blown stuff.


-During the processing of MB, the priority is : water stream reinforced material respectively hydrophilic stuff to guide back to the production line, which will require machinery equipment, different to the standard.


-Energy consumption is “always” a topic. Concerning this, we have carried out some promising trials. The results, we latest will present during the coming K-show.(So much already: new concept for heater bands, energy saving drives etc.)


-That Sikoplast grinders not just sustain the name of Sikoplast, but are also complete designed & manufactured should be known in the market. However, also for such kind of machine components ,- well introduced in the market – we see some potential for optimization.


We invite all of you to visit us on the K-show and would be pleased, when plenty of you could really make it.
