From May 2 to 6 the world's leading fair METPACK at Messe Essen will set new standards for the metal packaging sector. In addition to the range offered by the over 300 exhibitors, the METPACK Conference on the second day of the fair will promote knowledge transfer and serve as a valuable networking forum.
In the West Congress Centre at Messe Essen ten international experts will provide information about current research results and new manufacturing technologies in a concise manner. The event will be opened by Dr. Peter Biele, Chairman of the Board of thyssenkrupp Rasselstein, with a keynote about opportunities for the metal packaging industry. After Dr. Biele's lecture, Dr. Burkhard Kaup, Head of Materials Technology at thyssenkrupp Rasselstein, will provide information about efficiency benefits of high-end packaging steel.
With "Solidflex" the company has succeeded in optimising the tested "DR Formable" material quality even further. "Due to another increase in the hardness we can make packaging steel available which now reaches a tensile strength of 700 MPa instead of the previous value of nearly 580 MPa - and that with an extended elongation between five and ten percent," reported the Head of Materials Technology.
