New developments and European premieres at K 2022

A bigger booth, more exhibits, more room for smart solutions: At its almost 700 sqm booth in Hall 15/A57, the global market leader will showcase the benchmarks of its broad technology spectrum for a wide range of applications in key sectors of the plastics processing industries. Besides two European machine premieres, Haitian International will also present new developments and strategies within the Haitian Group at K 2022.

Under the motto "Smart Technologies - Flexible Integration - Sustainable Solutions," Haitian International is clearly positioning its Zhafir and Haitian brands for the future and, together with various partners, will showcase live applications from different industries and application areas. Haitian International will present a total of five exhibits at K 2022. The broad portfolio of electric series from Zhafir Plastics Machinery - whether as an all-electric solution, with integrated hydraulics or as a hybrid solution - will be represented by three machines.

In addition, Haitian International is communicating the synergies within the Haitian Group. Haitian Smart Solutions, also a member of the Haitian Group, will be presented for the first time in Düsseldorf at a European trade show as an accomplished integration partner.

New technologies

While the current machine portfolio already covers almost all requirements in the plastics processing industry, Haitian International is pushing ahead with new developments of its machine series. In addition to two European machine premieres showcasing the wide range of applications for Haitian machines, Haitian International will be exhibiting for the first time intelligent machine functions that enable plastics processors to achieve additional energy savings and more efficient processes. For instance, an intelligent energy management function. Furthermore, the company will introduce other features such as intelligent process optimization, plasticizing efficiency or clamping force optimization and thereby give an outlook to the next machine generation. Haitian International’s declared goal: To offer smart features as a standard feature at no extra charge.

Flexible integration

Standardized interfaces and open system integration are the fundamentals for maximum flexibility in terms of connectivity. Thus, Zhafir and Haitian machines offer processors almost unlimited freedom in their choice of integration partners. Accordingly, several system partners will be integrated into the machine concepts at K 2022. In the MES area, in addition to Haitian Smart Solutions' own "GoFactory", another MES partner will be presented specifically for the European market. All 5 exhibits will be connected to both systems.

Industry-oriented, sustainable solutions

Energy efficiency has always been a key aspect in the development of all Haitian machines. In this regard, sister company Haitian Drive Systems confirms its value as a co-innovation driver by developing and providing energy-efficient drives. Since 2006, these are used as standard in all machine series of the Zhafir and Haitian brands.

In the future, Haitian will intensify the development of industry-oriented and sustainable solutions. With the European premier of the Haitian Mars K Series, Haitian shows a machine not only ready for fast cycles, but also an effective solution for the processing of recycles and sustainable materials.

The K2022 exhibits at a glance

Medical: An electric Zhafir Zeres Med Series with 1,200 kN and medical package, will demonstrate an economical cleanroom solution made from PP with a laminar flowbox from Max Petek.

Commodity: An electric Zhafir Zeres Multi Series with 3,000 kN, presented as an R-version (piggyback) will be integrated into a production cell with in-house robotics of the Hilectro brand. The ZE-M produces a tape measure housing made from ABS/TPE.

Automotive: The electric hybrid Zhafir Jenius Series with 3,600 kN, is producing an automotive part that is removed with a "Success 33" from Sepro.

Logistic: A servo-hydraulic Haitian Jupiter with two-platen technology and 4,500 kN produces a fruit box made from a material compound HDPE and TetraPak recyclate. The application is integrated into a manufacturing cell with in-house Hilectro robotics.

Packaging: The servo-hydraulic Haitian Mars K Series with high injection performance of up to 1,000 mm/s is celebrating its premiere in Europe. It will produce a food container with IML, integrated into an automation system from Hilectro.
