EconCore will be exhibiting at K 2019 next month, featuring its patented and proven production technology that allows companies to produce performance to weight optimised products that has applications in a number of industry sectors.

The patented ThermHex technology has been licensed to a number of market leading companies around the world. Applications for the technology include automotive, commercial transportation, industrial packaging, and building and construction with the number of users continuously increasing.

Tomasz Czarnecki, COO at EconCore say, “Our aim is to continuously improve upon the technology to further develop the process and open new application possibilities. EconCore is excited to exhibit at K 2019 for the second time. We are looking forward to engaging in discussions with market leaders oriented towards innovation, performance and sustainability, and who want to ensure their long-term positioning on the market.”

EconCore’s subsidiary company based in Germany, ThermHex Waben – which is co-exhibiting at K 2019 – is progressing the commercialisation of ‘Organosandwich’ materials. These materials are sandwich panels, which have continuous glass fibre reinforced polymer skins laminated over polypropylene honeycomb cores within the continuous in-line production process.

Dr Jochen Pflug, CEO of EconCore and ThermHex Waben says, “With the Organosandwich we enable cost-reducing lightweight automotive parts in order to reduce fuel consumption, which has a positive effect on CO2 emissions and the environment.”

EconCore will be handing out packets of flower seeds to stand visitors. Across Europe nearly 1 in 10 wild bee species face extinction. As the EconCore technology is based on the natural structural engineering created by bees, the EconCore team are keen to do their bit to help increase the fragile bee population by encouraging more people to grow flowers that attract and help boost the bee population.
