From 17th – 21st October 2017, the plastic specialist is presenting its new solutions from the plastic technology area. This year the main focus will be on the automotive area with the topic of “Autonomous Driving”.

More than 1,700 exhibitors are introducing their international product ranges on the 25th anniversary of the world’s leading specialist event for industrial plastic processing in the trade fair centre in Friedrichshafen, Germany. More than 40,000 specialist visitors from 120 countries are expected. The trade fair provides a comprehensive overview of all plastic technologies. Of course, as one of the leading plastic processing companies with its three business divisions K-TECH®, KAPSTO® and FAMAC®, Pöppelmann will also be represented. The Pöppelmann team is already looking forward to interesting technical discussions on the trade fair stand in Hall B5, Stand B5-5107.

K-TECH®: Innovative plastic solutions for autonomous mobility.

Our K-TECH® business division is an important partner for manufacturers from the automotive industry with regard to active driving safety. Because of the increasing demand from end customers for assistant systems for additional driving safety and the long-term trend towards automated or autonomous driving, vehicle manufacturers are being faced with some difficult technical challenges. In order to meet these challenges, the supply companies also need to develop completely new solutions. Pöppelmann K-TECH®, our specialist for high-precision technical injection moulded plastic parts, is making a contribution. K-TECH® has already been developing and manufacturing mechanical functional parts and innovative solutions for fastening and covering / panelling for the assistant systems for many years. A functional part can contain assistant systems such as rain/light sensors, mono and stereo cameras, systems for tracking assistance or monitoring the road conditions, and holders and carrier plates for brake assistants or the reversing camera, for example. On the Pöppelmann trade fair stand the specialist visitors can experience how we support our customers in the development of lightweight functional parts, and discover the contributions made by the plastic specialist with its innovations on the way to automated or autonomous driving and for road traffic safety.

The right protection element is easy to find in the new online shop.

With Protectors4Connectors, Pöppelmann K-TECH® is introducing the new standard product range containing accessories for protecting and fastening connectors, corrugated tubes and cables at the Fakuma. On the protectors4connectors.com web site, customers from the automotive industry and other industries can now quickly and conveniently find the right item using search and filtering functions – and even order online. “As an international supplier we are seeing an increased demand for speed and availability in the market. Together with this, our customers always expect one hundred percent quality in our products and services. This is one of the reasons why we have decided to also sell our products in a web shop”, explains Dirk Stubbe, project leader at Pöppelmann K-TECH®, about the new product range.

KAPSTO® presents FastLane – for special parts in record time.
