Jacek Dobrzyński, owner of Plast Line, the Polish representative of motan-colortronic, is positively surprised. "On the first day we already had a lot of visitors at the stand. Normally, this day is more reserved," explains Dobrzyński. "During the K year, other fairs usually have a hard time of it.”
In addition to the exhibited cross-section of the product portfolio, the new products for K2019 took centre stage. These remained hidden in wooden boxes placed on the stand and encouraged the visitors of Plastpol to visit the K2019 in Düsseldorf. There, the contents will be unveiled. Of course, motan-colortronic was not in Kielce without any announcements. The RFID retrofit kits for the METROCONNECT coupling stations were presented for the first time in Poland.
The main feature of motan-colortronic’s coupling system METROCONNECT U/C is the high-quality, manual coupling station for vacuum operation. It is available as either an uncoded version (METROCONNECT U) or a coded version (METROCONNECT C) with maintenance-free RFID technology. Not only do coded coupling stations protect against coupling mistakes, they are often necessary if material tracing, validation or certification is required. The hose couplings are designed with patented tag positioning that can turn freely and lock.
In order to simplify the decision making process futher, the uncoded version can easily be retrofitted as a coded version at a later date. Older coupling systems from different manufacturers can also be extended with METROCONNECT C – for affordable and efficient modernisation.
