Recycling: New Free-Fall Metal Separator
This system is optimized for applications in plastics, especially for granulate and compound producers.
Sesotec extends its range of free-fall metal separators with the Rapid Pro-Sense 6. This system is optimized for plastics applications, especially for granulate and compound producers. The model reportedly features a high detection accuracy and provides protection against metal particles, and the logbook function allows full traceability. It also is suitable for applications involving abrasive material.
Rapid Pro-Sense 6 is characterized by an aperture size ranging from 50 to 250 mm that can be adapted to customer requirements, and features a wear-resistant design—for example, it does not contain any product-contacting seals that might come loose.
Rapid Pro-Sense 6 allows tool-free cleaning. The metal separator is suited for compound producers who need frequent color changes and/or short cleaning intervals. Optional washing nozzles allow water cleaning of the interior. Short cleaning time is said to increase uptime. The unit is equipped with an Ethernet interface and is "IoT-ready."

There are lots of ways to economize on resin costs, but here are four that you may have overlooked: negotiating smarter resin contracts, buying “futures,” using recycled resins, and more efficient purging aids. The main idea is to give yourself more choices, no matter what direction resin prices go.
Plastics processing is one of the fastest growing application areas for laser technology.
You know how to set a timer, but newer ultrasonic welders also offer control by energy, collapse distance, and absolute distance. Do you know when and how to exploit these options to make better welds?
