For Achenbach the METEC 2019 from June 25 – 29, 2019 in Düsseldorf was a full success due to the interest of important decision-makers who visited the Achenbach booth: The concept of presenting with Achenbach OPTILINK® big data applications with concrete digital solutions as well as very innovative technology components for touching was successful.
Digital solutions on an IoT platform enabling the plant operator in a practical and tailor-made way to chart and optimize the whole production process was of special interest. As for the presentation of innovations on component level the main focus was on those having key significance for quality and production speed, for example the range of Achenbach UniFlat® Measuring Rolls including the new CFP lightweight roll made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, the Achenbach UniSpray® Coolant Distribution System with BUS-wired nozzle valves, the professional LifeCycle Support or the 3D simulation of planned or very sophisticated technical solutions for the check in the run-up of its realization.
Focusing on the LifeCycle Support LCS with spare parts service, service and modernization especially for Achenbach machinery in the Far East but also for third-party machinery Achenbach Buschhütten and its subsidiary Achenbach Asia Pacific AAP were one of the exhibitors of ALUMINIUM CHINA taking place from July 10 – 12, 2019 in Shanghai.
As the market-leading machine building company in the aluminium industry Achenbach Buschhütten and AAP together informed the numerous interested visitors about innovations in the non-ferrous rolling mill and foil slitting machinery sector and especially about current service themes such as software upgrades or spare parts services.
The presentation of a completely new flatness measuring roll attracted lots of interested persons to visit the Achenbach booth. The new Achenbach UniFlat® CFP Flatness Measuring Roll made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic is a low inertia roll measuring the final flatness with a tactile measuring system. It is a cost-effective alternative to the inspector machines and provides a complete substitution of an existing deflection roller. Moreover, there were expert discussions on the complete range of Achenbach OPTIFOIL® machinery with new technology components as well as on worldwide ongoing projects and new investment projects.
