WINDMOELLER & HOELSCHER (Taicang) Co., Ltd. welcomed more than 150 customers and partners to the open house at its premises in Taicang near Shanghai. During Chinaplas 2018 the open house celebrated the inauguration of a new show room for woven PP machinery featuring the most modern CONVERTEX SLC 120.

Windmöller & Hölscher spearheaded many innovations in woven PP. One of the fundamental devel-opments was the CONVERTEX, which heat seals woven PP cross bottom bags and thus eliminates the need of glue for this type of bags. Also today CONVERTEX forms the backbone of the extensive portfolio of Windmöller & Hölscher in the woven PP business. During the last 10 years the output of the bottomer was more than doubled: from 60 bags per minute to 140 in the latest model. This speed represents the technological leadership in this type of equipment. Today the product range features machines with capacities of 80, 100, 120 and 140 bags per minute.

During Chinaplas 2018 the open house celebrated the inauguration of a new show room for woven PP machinery featuring the most modern CONVERTEX SLC 120. This demonstrates the company’s continuing commitment to the Asian market once more. Further show rooms for the woven industry are supporting customers at the facilities in Germany and Czech Republic.

Customers from all over Asia, including China, India, Indonesia and Thailand, appreciated the chance to witness the exceptional performance of Windmöller & Hölscher and the live demonstration of CONVERTEX SLC 120. The visitor response was very positive. The market success is demonstrated by the accelerating number of machines coming into China in the course of 2017 and 2018.

The machine presentations in Taicang convinced the visitors of highest productivity and versatility in the production of block bottom valve bags. In connection with the patented NANOTEX CYCLO unmatched bag performance can be achieved in terms of combining strength and de-aeration. A team of Chinese and European technicians ran various woven materials to the satisfaction of the expert visitors.

Jinghui Dai, General Manager of W&H in Taicang, underlines that live demonstrations of technology are the best way to convince customers about the capabilities and how it helps to exceed their requirements. This helped a great deal to conclude the successful sales of several CONVERTEX machines during Chinaplas.
