The Kunststoffenbeurs 2016 - which is the essential event for all professionals from the plastics industry - will take place at the end of September. Now in its 18th year, its theme is "From idea to product". As a specialist in designing and optimising products and production processes, it wouldn't be complete without Sirris. We’ll be giving two lectures and showing what we can offer at our own stand.

Among the different working strategies for ‘high performance cutting’ (HPC), trochoidal milling is an efficient way of processing (difficult materials), and is one that also utilizes a longer cutting edge. In order to increase productivity even further, the materials and processes laboratory at University of Karlsruhe has developed another strategy for trochoidal cutting, namely epicycloidal cutting.

Early 2016, Sirris devoted several papers to the recycling of plastics, the circular economy and bioplastics as a sustainable alternative to plastic waste. In this context, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) recently reported that biodegradable plastics are currently no solution to marine litter. In fact, it’s our waste management on land that should be improved in the first place.
