Netstal and Berstorff are now KraussMaffei.

KraussMaffei in Germany is consolidating all its business divisions—injection molding, extrusion and reaction process technology—and its previous brands—KraussMaffei, KraussMaffei Berstorff and Netstal—within a single unified brand: KraussMaffei. Netstal will remain as a product brand within KM’s Injection Molding Machinery segment, though the sales organization is being consolidated by regions, “so that each customer will have only one contact, who will provide comprehensive support” for injection machinery. The Swiss subsidiary Netstal-Maschinen AG will be known as KraussMaffei High Performance AG.

Meanwhile, the former KraussMaffei Berstorff extrusion/compounding machinery will be known as KraussMaffei. The German subsidiary KraussMaffei Berstorff GmbH will now be known as KraussMaffei Extrusion GmbH.

A new corporate design reflecting these changes will be rolled out at the K 2019 show in Dusseldorf in October. (Look for our show news preview in September.)

    Around three dozen, mostly European, processors are pushing commercial development of high-speed single-screw extrusion. They have installed more than 100 of the small hyper-drive machines whose screws turn at up to 1500 rpm, about eight to 10 times faster than standard extruders. At least two German machine builders are working on machines that will go to 2000 rpm and even higher. The goal is to raise output without increasing extruder size.
