At K 2019, battenfeld-cincinnati will be showcasing several models with innovative features from its wide range of extruders (Hall 16, Booth B19).
Its one-of-a-kind standard extruder is suitable for manufacturing small technical profiles, and has carved out an established position in the market over the past 18 years as a cash-and-carry product, with some 1,200 sold to date.
The latest innovation to be presented at K will be the alpha plus, a compact plug-and-play extruder with technical attributes.
The proven BCtouch UX solution is the foundation of the new control system platform. A high-performance temperature-monitoring module is integrated in the compact control system, which is handy for temperature-sensitive raw materials.
In, the battenfeld-cincinnati booth will also be demonstrating the solEX New Generation 75-40D, a high-performance single-screw extruder that offers three key advantages: outstanding melt homogeneity, low melt temperatures, and low energy consumption.
This extruder delivers an exceptionally long service life with low wear and little maintenance required.
The optimised NG processing unit is designed to be retrofitted onto an older solEX model with ease. The NG focus technology is delivering such strong results that battenfeld-cincinnati has made it available for the uniEX range of single-screw extruders, effective immediately.
Retrofitting is also possible in this case.
The STARextruder 120, in which battenfeld-cincinnati has developed a machine concept dedicated specifically to processing PET, will also be present at K. Basic structure consists of a single-screw extruder whose with a central planetary roller section where the melted material is rolled out into very thin layers, producing an enormous melt surface that is a breeze to degassing and devolatilise.
The STARextruder can be used to process both non-predried new materials and any kind of recycled materials, as confirmed by its US FDA approval.
There is still a huge amount of untapped potential in the possibilities that this system can offer, especially in the context of the circular economy. As numerous trials have demonstrated, it is also capable of delivering outstanding processing and decontamination results for other materials besides PET.
