This is LEONHARD KURZ’s aspiration. From October 19 to 26, 2022, we will be presenting innovative and sustainable plastic decorations for the automotive, home appliances, consumer electronics, and health & beauty sectors at K 2022 in Düsseldorf.
Visit us in Hall 5/A19 – E09 and get inspiration for sustainable surface solutions, efficient technologies and visionary design concepts that significantly reduce the CO2 balance of your products. Some of them have already won prizes, others will be introduced to the world for the first time. Experience up close how innovations are created and arrange a personal meeting now. We look forward to meeting you!
Automotive Rear End Cover
LIVE! Here, the innovative IMD process is used to create a rear end cover with three different design areas. The panel, made of two different stable plastics, is translucent and can be recycled as a single unit. An innovative lighting concept enables communication with other road users and at the same time makes unmistakable brand statements.
Live production in Hall 5 / A19 – E09
NEW! This decoration opens up new worlds at the Point Of Sale: The I-Series ISIMAT machine turns conical plastic and glass articles into real attractions on cosmetic shelves in a single production step. See for yourself!
See for yourself live at the stand how a washing machine panel on a BAIER BINSPIRE machine is equipped with touch sensors using FFB (Functional Foil Bonding) and customized in the same machine unit with digital printing. This converts household appliances from series production items into individual editions.
Digital Product Passport with ValiGate®
This Digital Product Passport will already make you compliant with an EU Directive scheduled to come into force from 2024, according to which complete proof of the entire product history must be provided. But this feature offers even more possibilities.
KURZ and Engel:
Rear End Cover
Together with its machine partner Engel, KURZ is presenting a world first LIVE at K 2022:
The machine technology was developed together with KURZ subsidiary Schöfer, which enables the use of a 2K material mix. You will experience live how a rear end cover that harmoniously combines design and functionality is produced and finished. The connected surface impresses with its large, seamless decoration, backlighting, and 3D lighting effects.
Overhead Light Console - Smart surface design in the roof-lining
LIVE: An innovative and multifunctional control panel for roof-lining use will be created at the Wittmann Group stand. Ambient, reading light, or sunroof can be controlled using the In-Mold Electronics (IME) process. Gobo projections with your own logo can also be part of the interior of the future.
KURZ at the Circular Economy Forum
It’s all about the circular economy: See how KURZ’s own post-industrial recyclate RECOPOUND® is used to create stable and high-quality products, and how they can be decorated LIVE on a BAIER BECORUN machine.
Wallbox - More than just an e-charger
E-mobility, original and individual design, as well as maximum functionality and sustainability are inextricably linked. It’s no wonder that the Wallbox developed by KURZ and its project partners attracts all eyes.
At KURZ, acting responsibly starts with the very first idea. Our credo is to combine sustainable and pioneering decorations with CO2-reducing processes and the highest design standards. With our WELL-BEING Visionary Design concept, we are taking the next big step towards becoming a green leader. Recycled plastics, biopolymers, recyclable surfaces, and natural dyes are processed in efficient ways. The characteristics of the materials used have been incorporated into the harmonious, flowing, and calm design concept - with a fantastic feel to boot. Sustainability competence and recycling security from the initial idea to the finished design. ‘Be a green leader’ with KURZ!
This is all about projects and technologies that make the circular economy possible. KURZ presents its RECOSYS® take-back system: PET carrier residues are taken back from customers and processed into their own Post-Industrial Recyclate, RECOPOUND®, which is ideal for the production of injection-molded parts and is, in turn, recyclable. That’s what Lifecycle Thinking is all about.
On a BAIER BECORUN machine, we decorate watering cans made of 100% RECOPOUND® live at the VDMA Circular Economy Forum In Pavilion 10 Booth CE14.
