Complimentary Articles of Kunststoffe international 6-7
In his latest editorial editor-in-chief Dr. Karlhorst Klotz muses about Industry 4.0 and how this keyword describes more of a vision than a technology but is the talk of the town nevertheless.

This month we offer six additional articles of the current issue
of Kunststoffe international free of charge. Among them an overview of the business situation of German plastics producers as presented by PlasticsEurope Deutschland. Another article traces the development of a new systems solution that not only promises a particularly strong, media-tight plastic-to-metal bond in the injection molding process, but is also corrosion-resistant, environmentally friendly and particularly cost-effective. Yet another article in this issue provides a guideline as to which melt filter to choose when constructing or redeveloping extrusion lines.
