“Of course, continuous technical optimization of all machine components is part and parcel of our daily production routine. After all, we want to be ready at all times to meet customers’ needs as well as any changes in the market with modern, efficient concepts”, says Dr. Henning Stieglitz, CTO of the battenfeld-cincinnati group. From now on all individual components in a pipe extrusion line will also be presented with a modern, functional and, above all, uniform image. With its new design, battenfeld-cincinnati has won the coveted Design Award 2022 and thus impressively visualizes its expertise as the only supplier worldwide of complete lines from a single source.
The Industry Forum Design Award, already in existence since 1954, is awarded since 2011 by the association IF Industrie Forum Design e.V., Hanover. This year, battenfeld-cincinnati impressed the jury with its uniform “pipe extrusion line” design in the corporate colors in the category 1.22 “Industry/Tools” and thus won the first prize. At the K, the design will be officially unveiled and presented to the public for the first time. From January 2023 onwards, the design will be a part of the company’s products as standard, and all pipe extrusion lines delivered will appear in the uniform design and equipped with new functionalities.
Optimal accessibility and operation and easy cleaning options characterize the new design of all machine components. The lines are currently available in five machine sizes – for pipes with diameters of up to 63, 160, 250, 400 and 630 mm. All aggregates, from the extruder, the calibration and cooling unit, the vacuum tank up to the cutting device and the tilt table, are manufactured in-house by battenfeld-cincinnati with perfect technical synchronization to exclude all interface problems, and now also visually coordinated as well as integrated into the intuitively operated BCtouch UX control system.
