Radilon® and Radistrong® stop over at Fakuma

After ChinaPlas in Shanghai and MSV in Brno, RADILON® and RADISTRONG® nylon specialities take centre stage at the 23rd FAKUMA, the international trade fair for plastics processing in Friedrichshafen, Germany, from 14 to 18 October 2014.

“Fakuma is the second most important world trade fair in our sector,” said Cesare Clausi, business manager Europe of the RadiciGroup Plastics Business Area. “It is an event of international significance and central to our business, in that the German market is strategically important to our Plastics Business Area. In terms of sales, Germany is the number one market in Europe for us, and it is where we are on our way to achieving the same very good results obtained in 2013.”

The RadiciGroup Plastics Business Area has been present in Germany since 1998 with its Radici Plastics GmbH production site in Lüneburg and its sales units in Overath, Reutlingen, Viernheim and Hamburg.  Radici Plastics GmbH – previously awarded ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 14001 certifications as the result of its efforts in the areas of energy performance and energy cost reduction – in 2013 obtained ISO 50001 certification, an important achievement demonstrating its corporate environmental commitment.

At Fakuma RadiciGroup Plastics is focusing its attention on different types of products with a common denominator: they are all engineering plastics featuring high performance and reduced environmental impact. In the spotlight are PA6.10 and PA6.12 long-chain polymers, high temperature resistant specialities, and high performance engineering polymers ideal for metal replacement.

“Our customers are our starting point for every development project,” said Erico Spini, marketing & application development director of RadiciGroup Plastics. ”That is the reason we concentrate on providing the best possible technical support in the plastic component design stage, above all in those cases where metal is going to be replaced with plastic. In addition to so-called traditional support, we can perform structural calculations that take into account the glass-fibre orientation in the final product, for instance. This approach allows us to make a correlation between the moulding conditions and the choice of the injection points, on the one hand, and the physical and mechanical characteristics of the final product, on the other. The net result is a better match between the simulation results and the actual behaviour of the plastic object, which, for all intents and purposes, may be considered a composite.”
