From the K 2019 show floor, hear from Bengt Rimark of Rapid Granulator and Bob Maughan of SABIC as they talk about new recycling technology and developments.

K 2019 is the place to go for new technology and innovation. Many different companies all across the supply chain discussed advances in recycling at the show, which is very exciting for my beat! 

In part two of my recycling video series, Bengt Rimark of Rapid Granulator discusses how the company’s new machine gives molders more flexibility in slow-speed modes. He also highlights a range of other new granulators that were showcased at K 2019.

Bob Maughan of SABIC highlights the company’s range of advanced packaging material and technology solutions at K 2019 to help manufacturers create sustainable packaging options for increased performance and reduced waste.

  • Laser Welding Comes of Age

    Laser welding is gaining acceptance as a specialized method for joining plastic parts that are sensitive (e.g., contain circuit boards), involve complex geometries, or have strict cleanliness requirements (medical devices). So far, most of this activity has taken place in Europe.

  • Clean and Upgrade Recycled PET

    Two recently developed technologies are said to make high-quality PET recycling more economical.

  • How Much Regrind Can You Handle?

    Most extrusion operations generate scrap, and in the case of sheet for thermoforming it can exceed 70% of total output.
