Hennecke will officially open its new Tech Center during the International Polyurethane Conference on Sept. 16 and 17. The conference is jointly organized by the Specialist Association Foamed Plastics and Polyurethanes (FSK) and Hennecke. It will take place in Bonn, Germany and at Hennecke's Sankt Augustin, Germany headquarters.

Apart from product development and product optimization, the comprehensive service portfolio of the Hennecke Tech Center comprises process development and raw materials testing under close-to-production conditions. In addition, training, demonstrations to customers and matching tests will be carried out in the state-of-the-art application technology center. The process and machine technology available in the Tech Center covers high and low-pressure metering machines with up to six components and a large output range.

It also includes plant technology for all processing variants in the area of polyurethane spray molding (PUR-CSM) as well as systems engineering for the production of fiber-reinforced structural components (HP-RTM). In addition, machine and plant technology for various injection, molded foam and insulation foam applications is provided to the customer.

The two-day conference will be launched at the former Plenary Chamber of the German Parliament in Bonn. Accordingly, the discussion will focus on current environmental issues. The political debate will be framed by technical presentations from industry and research professionals. The emphasis will be on flexible foam applications in the automotive industry, optimized production lines for refrigerator doors as well as current developments and advances in lightweight construction. Another highlight will be the second conference day at Hennecke's company site, when Hennecke opens its doors to the PU world. In addition to the presentations, participants will enjoy live demonstrations and a tour of Hennecke's production facilities.
