Recycling & Scrap Reclaim: Machinery Technology Advances as 'Circular Economy' Takes Hold
The circular economy and recycling were the top themes at K 2019, and machine builders responded with new systems to improve equipment performance and material quality.
Recycling: News in Size Reduction, Drying
Herbold Meckesheim is showcasing several new machines for recycling at K2019.
Herbold USA Installs Rooftop Solar Energy System
In the fall of 2015, the company purchased a rooftop solar energy system to provide electrical power to its 10,000 square foot facility located in North Smithfield.
RECYCLING/SCRAP RECLAIM AT NPE: Less Waste And Lower Maintenance
Whether for commercial recycling or in-house scrap reclaim, new systems boast reduced maintenance, higher throughput, and less waste of resin for purging.
K 2013: More Efficient, Flexible & User-Friendly Auxiliaries
It’s hard to generalize about auxiliary equipment, but a few trends stood out at K, including: greater energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and cleaning, controls that provide more real-time and historical process information and greater ease of use.
Auxiliaries at NPE: News in Materials Handling, Cooling, Granulating, Welding, Testing, Decorating
Auxiliary equipment takes in a broad range of functions, from materials preparation to post-mold finishing.
More Choices for Grinding, Shredding
Many granulators on display at the K 2007 show in Dusseldorf last October were big models—150 to 200 hp—to enable higher throughputs or reclaiming larger parts and chunks. For example, Rapid Granulator from Sweden brought out the 600 model, the largest in its “open-hearted” series, which allow fast access to all internal components. It has a 600-mm-diam. rotor, 100 mm more than the next largest size.
NPE 2006 News Wrap-Up: Recycling and Scrap Reclaim
NPE was full of new equipment and systems for recapturing valuable in-plant scrap and post-consumer/post-industrial plastic waste. Recovery of PET packaging and film or fiber waste were particular areas of emphasis, as were lots of new granulators, from the world’s biggest to micro-size and even ‘clean-room’ models.
NPE Offered Extensive Line-Up Of New Granulators & Shredders
While most of the new granulators shown at NPE 2000 last month were beside-the-press models, there was also an accent on larger units with an appetite for tough hunks of large-diameter PVC pipe, bundles of textile fibers, and wads of molten bottle flash. Many are configured for “difficult” resins from engineering types to soft TP elastomers.
