JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
The company expands its development capacity at Sankt Augustin headquarters by opening a polyurethane technology center.
At Hennecke's new Techcenter, customers will from September be able to draw on state-of-the-art polyurethane processing technology for all applications across a surface of more than 1,000 square metres.Hennecke offers innovative systems and technologies that are geared to meet customer requirements in all conceivable applications. Without intensive and continuous research and development, this would not be possible. From the machinery and plant manufacturer's point of view, it is thus logical to establish a new application technology center at Sankt Augustin headquarters which places the focus on specific customer requirements on the one hand and in-house research on the other hand. Apart from product development and product optimisation, the comprehensive service portfolio of the Hennecke Techcenter comprises process development and raw materials testing under close-toproduction conditions. Moreover, training, demonstrations to customers and matching tests will be carried out in the state-of-the-art application technology center. The process and machine technology available in the Techcenter covers high and low-pressure metering machines with up to six components and a large output range. It also includes plant technology for all processing variants in the area of polyurethane spray moulding (PUR-CSM) as well as systems engineering for the production of fibre-reinforced structural components (HP-RTM). In addition, machine and plant technology for various injection, moulded foam and insulation foam applications is provided to the customer. The new applications technology center will be opened during the International Polyurethane Conference that is jointly organised by the Specialist Association Foamed Plastics and Polyurethanes (FSK) and Hennecke. The symposium will take place in Bonn and at Hennecke's Sankt Augustin headquarters on 16 and 17 September. More information: www.hennecke.com
