K 2022

After the long period of time influenced by Covid-19, many companies of the plastics and rubber industries had started preparing for the 19th edition of their most important and biggest exhibition with tremendous excitement: The K 2022 took place in Düsseldorf from 19 to 26 October 2022.

3037 exhibitors looked forward to finally being able to communicate again personally with their approximately 176,000 trade visitors from 157 nations.

We also participated with our own booth and an international team of 20 colleagues this time. Mr Josef Posniak, Spokesman of our Management Board, was also frequently involved in customer discussions.

28 of 89 trade visitors at the booth of Carl Aug. Picard GmbH came from Germany. It was a pleasure for us to welcome also our Asian customers despite the difficult situation, who travelled the long way, for example, from Japan, China, Thailand and Malaysia in order to visit us at the exhibition. The other visitors came from Europe and the USA.

Beside our known products and services in the field of co-rotating twin-screw extruders, our newly designed FD systems for stripping off elements gently were focussed on this time.

A distinction is made between the "FDS & FDX" system and the "FD200" system. While the "FDS & FDX" system can strip off elements with diameters of 20 - 160 mm, the "FD200" system is suitable for elements with a diameter of up to 270 mm.

This innovation makes it possible to strip off elements hydraulically even with these particular diameters in order to reduce the risk of injury and to carry out a time-saving change of configuration.

The next K show will take place from 8 to 15 October 2025. We are already looking forward very much to welcoming many guests then again at our booth.
