Planatol at the Interzum, LIGNA & ChinaPrint trade fairs in May

In May 2017, Planatol presented its adhesives and application systems at three different trade fairs.

Interzum & LIGNA

The Interzum took place in Cologne between May 16-19 and centres around the specialist themes of furniture manufacture and interior design. This was followed soon after by the LIGNA trade fair from May 22 to 26 in Hanover, which claims to be the “world’s most important trade fair for machines, plants and tools in wood processing and woodworking”.
At both trade fairs, Planatol presented its innovative adhesives for wood processing to interested trade visitors at their attractive trade fair stand. Both trade fairs are internationally oriented and therefore attract a large proportion of visitors from abroad. “We were delighted with the outcome of both trade fairs. We had some very good discussions and made many contacts with representatives from some interesting companies, some of them internationally based”, reported Ingo Barrabas, team manager of wood adhesives at Planatol. “It is especially pleasing for me when I meet customers with whom we have enjoyed a successful and trustful partnership for many years”, Barrabas added: “You just can’t beat having a personal discussion”.

The trade fair organisers were also pleased with the success of the trade fairs, both in terms of the trade fair concept and the feedback received from exhibitors and visitors.
Dr. Andreas Gruchow, member of the board of Deutschen Messe AG, explained: “The LIGNA 2017 set a milestone in the digitalisation of the wood industry.”
“It was the best Interzum of all time”, beamed Katharina C. Hamma, the manager of Koelnmesse GmbH.


Planatol’s first trade fair appearance in May was at the ChinaPrint: Between May 9-13, Planatol System was in attendance to present new product developments and user-optimised enhancements of existing adhesive application systems.
“The cold and hot-gluing systems Coldjet and Hotjet drew particular attention”, manager Frank Heuer reported. On request, these two systems can also be operated via Wi-Fi and app using the innovative Duojet control unit.

In combination with the proven high-speed fold-gluing system “Combijet”, which is established in rotary printing, these innovations meant that an attractive range of products could be presented to interested trade fair visitors in Peking. “Our strength lies in the modular structure of our systems, which can be adapted to individual customer requirements. The customer can then order the suitable adhesive at the same time”, Frank Heuer commented.

China Print is one of the most important trade fairs in Asia in the field of printing and takes place on an exhibition space of approx. 160,000 m². Planatol exhibited at the community stand together with the Gämmerler company in the German pavilion in hall E1.

Planatol would like to thank all customers and interested parties for the interesting discussions and active exchanges at the trade fairs and events.
