Arburg acquire AMK's Drives & Automation division
Strategic investment in the future: Arburg’s entrepreneurial families Hehl and Keinath have acquired AMK Arnold Müller GmbH & Co. KG and with it the Drives & Automation division as of 1st January 2021. The company will operate under the new name of AMKmotion GmbH + Co KG in future. The AMK Group, which is based in Kirchheim/Teck, is one of the international technology leaders in the electric drive technology, control technology, industrial automation engineering, and automotive sectors. AMK has worked closely with Arburg as a development partner in electric drive systems for more than two decades. This combined effort has contributed significantly to the success story of the electric Allrounder injection moulding machines.
Masterbatches for high temperature polymers
Color is also essential in the field of high-temperature polymers. It is often used for visual differentiation and is therefore all the more important in terms of color intensity and variety. New color formulations can withstand the extraordinary demands and stand for a high level of quality.
SIGMA technical talks
The web-seminar-series that informs about the potentials and applications of modern injection molding simulation at the beginning of the new year. The exclusive presentations by many partners provide a deep insight into the numerous branches of the injection molding industry.
Sustainability Report by SÜDPACK
For the third time now, SÜDPACK has voluntarily published an ex-tensive sustainability report. The current publication transparently communicates the progress made in 2018 and 2019 in the fields of environment, economy and social responsibility.

KEYCYCLE, a subsidiary of the EREMA Group
The Spanish company Cadel Deinking has been working on the removal of printing inks from plastic surfaces since 2014 and has developed an innovative process for this purpose. In combination with EREMA recycling technology, this ink removal process has already proven its suitability for real-life applications involving the recycling of printed inhouse and post-industrial film waste. This represents a milestone in safely feeding recycled pellets made from originally printed film back into the production process. The EREMA Group with its subsidiary KEYCYCLE is now intensifying its cooperation with Cadel Deinking to drive this development forward technologically and form a product that meets industrial standards.
The world of plastics can already look forward to the New Year: on 28 January 2021, Arburg will be launching another new digital format. arburgXvision will go on air monthly from then on. The interactive live broadcasts covering all aspects of plastics processing will shed light on important topics closely related to customers. Presentations and clips will explore the topics from different angles. And presenter Guido Marschall from plastics broadcaster Plas.TV will discuss the highlights with top experts who will also answer participants' questions live. Kicking off the series is the topic "0 ppm production of plastic parts".
Demand for EREMA PET recycling
The recycling of PET bottles has gained worldwide acceptance over the past 20 years and has become a model for the circular economy in plastics. This development has been driven forward by EREMA's bottle-to-bottle innovations. The Austrian recycling machine manufacturer has set new standards in this respect time and again, particularly with their VACUREMA® technology, which is the heart of the new VACUNITE® process. As a result, PET bottles with a high recyclate content - a feature indicated clearly on the label - are now an increasingly common sight on shop shelves. The demand for EREMA's innovative PET recycling technologies is growing worldwide across the entire PET segment.
ICE Europe 2021 postponed
Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has today announced the postponement of ICE Europe, CCE International and InPrint Munich 2021, which were scheduled to take place at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany from 9 to 11 March 2021. Instead, the collective of converting, paper and print exhibitions will run from 22 – 24 June 2021. This decision was taken in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and continued uncertainties regarding travel restrictions and event planning by the authorities.
