During this year’s edition of K trade fair, held in Düsseldorf, Gefran presented its new Melt pressure sensors with IO-Link.

These new sensors have been specifically developed in order to meet the needs of connectivity, factory data acquisition, monitoring and predictive maintenance, in line with the dictates of Industry 4.0 as well as with the ever-growing environmental awareness.

The German fair is one of Europe’s reference events for plastic and gum industries and it represents the ideal stage for the launch of technological innovations aimed at machinery manufacturers, system integrators as well as end-users operating in the sector.

During the event, Gefran also presented the new upgrades of the pressure sensor range for extrusion plants, Hyperwave magnetostrictive technology position sensors, characterized by a long service life and no maintenance, and the new apps developed by Sensormate, a subsidiary of the Group.

According to Alberto Bartoli, Gefran’s CEO,

K has been a fundamental moment to get in touch with those who are looking for a reference point in the plastics market and to share the benefits of Gefran solutions and applications of our technology. The K was also a turning point for the Group, which has illustrated its new Corporate Identity“.
