According to the show organization, the K-show has largely exceeded all expectations regarding the number of visitors and projects signed.
REP could draw the same balance with more than 1,000 visitors on their booth!
Business projects directly signed during the show
This new event of the K-show has largely kept its promises with a new record posted for the number of visitors, new projects, new contacts and sales directly negotiated and concluded during the show!
Beyond these very positive results, the welcome granted to the new products, more particularly to the G10 Core and Extended machines and the mould cleaning machine REP MLC500 by Laselec is very encouraging.
The G10 Core has found its target
The "lean" machine range developed for simple processes is available in the middle of the range (160 to 500 t).
It offers all basic functionalities and is intended for those customers, who need proven and basic solutions.
It undeniably meets the actual needs and has already found buyers during this first performance!
The G10 dual compound Extended in the spotlight
The visitors weren't wrong. Many of them came to see the automatically controlled moulding demonstrations on the V510 dual compound Extended.
Rubber presses of this size were rare at the show and far more rare were live demonstrations of this type.
The G10 Extended range meets the most stringent process requirements involving the highly developed technology and confirmed know-how of REP.
The laser cleaning machine raises high interest
The REP MLC500 by Laselec is a laser machine designed for the cleaning of industrial parts, injection and compression moulds. It also meets the requirements of the compound industry.
Nominated for the Inovo Awards of the Tech category, it attracted a large number of visitors who could watch laser cleaning demonstrations. This profitable, environment-minded and hazardless solution guarantees optimized, fast and reproducible cleaning at reduced operator, consumable and logistics costs.
Many contacts have been tied, which confirm the interest of the rubber processors in this technology.
A true success for the REP products
The customers were also interested in our software programs (HMI and REP Pack 4.0) and in the compression presses.
Stéphane Demin, Market Development Director is very enthusiastic:
"We got the confirmation that our new developments actually meet the market requirements.
The G10 Core range was greatly welcomed which is confirmed by the sales of several machines on our booth.
We strengthen our technological advance with one of the most performing operator interfaces in the market of elastomer presses and the REP PACK 4.0 software offer, which meets the requirements of industry 4.0."
