Size Reduction Technical Articles
Choosing a granulator depends upon the material to be cut as well as its size, shape and thickness. The amount of material that needs to be granulated and how the regrind will be processed are also key considerations.
Dr. James L. Throne, PhD takes a look at the process of thermoforming in this tutorial. He focuses on the part that "never, ever" produces money and how to make the most of it.
Different regrind processes are better for different scenarios. Regrinding Beside-the-Press, when sensible, can save time, labor, and material costs. This White Paper will focus on Beside-the-Press and the top five reasons you might want to choose this type of granulator.
Looking to minimize the regrind touch points, Teel Plastics management consulted with Cumberland about their current challenges and the possibility of using beside-the-press (BTP) granulators. After an onsite analysis, they decided on a test that would feature BTP granulators on one of their smaller lines.
