Despite rather cautious economic outlook, Chinaplas 2012 boomed once again, proven by more exhibitors and visitors than last year. This year’s show slogan, "the growth engine for your industries", perfectly characterizes the show’s mission to bring plenty of solutions for various user enterprises by showcasing the most innovative and advanced plastics and rubber machinery and raw materials. And this is exactly what the many visitors at the Brückner Group booth got: trend-setting solutions and technologies for an efficient, profitable and environmentally friendly production and processing of various plastics films.
At the ever crowded booth, visitors not only from China but from almost all over the world were highly interested in present and future issues such as optimum efficiency and profitability, utmost energy and material savings, added value special films or smart service ideas. In many fruitful discussions, film manufacturers and plastics processors showed great interest in:

Again, this year our customers, friends and suppliers to the industry were welcomed at our reception party held at the Paulaner Brewery at the Bund to exchange ideas for future business or simply enjoy the evening with German beer and food in a nice ambience.
Brückner Group’s Chinaplas staff was overwhelmed by the quantity of visitors and the excellent level of the numerous conversations. We say thanks to all customers and friends and promise: We will further improve our technology, quality and services – and will demonstrate those also at Chinaplas 2013 in Guangzhou in May.
The great interest in new technologies and value added films was already distinguishable in the “functional film” conference which was organized by the China Plastics Processing Industry Association (CPPIA) just before Chinaplas. More than 250 delegates throughout the industry well received the keynote speech on advanced functional films presented by Brückner's Reinhard Priller, Senior Sales Manager and Zhou Housong, Senior Technical Sales Manager. The keynote speech was completed by a highly recognized lecture on Brückner's unique technology for battery separator film production, for the ever growing 3C, EV and Stationary Power field - presented by Dr. Jürgen Breil, Brückner Maschinenbau’s R&D Director.
