The compact and versatile All-Electric
High-quality visible components with 100% recycled insert
Together with our partner Roctool, we are closing the material cycle for sophisticated visible components made of PC-ABS at K 2022. With the help of variothermal processing technology and digital solutions, high-quality housing parts with a high-gloss surface can be produced from 100 percent recyclate. This application demonstrates the high potential for circular economy for manufacturers of household appliances, white goods, consumer electronics and telecommunications.
