Post-Industrial Plastic Scrap Reclamation

Plasmac has added a new range of Post-Industrial Plastic Scrap Reclamation machinery to its portfolio of effective, energy-efficient recycling machines for post-industrial plastic waste.

 

The Epsilon range is based around a dual-diameter screw and direct shredder feeding system. A single shaft shredder is mounted on top of the hopper entry. The shredder is cantilevered for easy access to the screw and for cleaning. The shredder is particularly useful for pre-size reduction of some types of feedstock, such as rigid polymers, skeletal waste, thicker trims, and film off-cuts and cut-outs.

 

At the smaller end of the range, the Epsilon machines are perfect to be used as high-speed inline trim recycling machines or for thicker trims.

 

The larger Epsilon machines are ideal for the recycling of start-up scrap, injection moulding scrap, and for the recycling of non-wovens.

 

Depending on the application, Plasmac offers two types of pelletising systems, either AIRCOOL or HYDROCOOL. Normally, the smaller machines would be AIRCOOL and the larger machines can be supplied either AIRCOOL OR HYDROCOOL.

 

There are a number of standard options available to ensure that this system is perfect for your needs and our team are happy to discuss these with you.

Bandera Hosts Live Streamed Open House

Bandera will host a Live Streamed Open House from their House of Extrusion facility near Milan on May 12th & 13th 2020

 

Participants will have the opportunity to see a Bandera complete 5-layer co-extrusion blown film line for HDB (Heavy Duty Bags) and FFS (Form, Fill, Seal) applications.

 

The HDB Flex lines offer excellent results for features required by processors such as weldability, processability and printability. As processors require minimised film thickness the company has taken on this challenge to meet its customer’s requirements.

 

In collaboration with Borouge, a manufacturer of polyolefins and Frilvam Masterbatches, Bandera will be showcasing the latest innovations. Bandera are worldwide specialists in the design and manufacture of Blown Film Lines and a globally recognised brand in the plastics industry. This will, therefore, be an excellent opportunity to view one of their technologically impressive lines in comfort.

 

If you would like to discover more about our Blown Film Lines visit our dedicated page to download some basic information.

 

The event will be available for three sessions over the two days enabling participants to take part whatever their schedule.

Plastics Industry Awards

Plastics Industry Awards Finalists for Second Year

The Plastics Industry Awards have come around again and we are delighted to say, that for the second year in a row, we are Finalists.

 

The category of Supplier Partnership – Prime Machinery is a hotly contested one, with major companies hoping to bring home the plastic.

 

We are delighted to be waving the flag for Bandera film and sheet extrusion machinery amongst so many injection moulding machine manufacturers. Our partner customer, Mister Blister, are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of thermoformed blister packaging and blister packs and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with them on their challenging project.

 

This year will be the 18th anniversary of the Plastics Industry Awards and most of our team have been involved in one form or another for all of those years. Discussing our experiences, we have come to the conclusion that the awards have definitely evolved over this time. These days, Awards night comes with a theme (this year it is Big Band), fabulous food from the Hilton on Park Lane and spectacular entertainment. Not to mention the ‘after party’.

 

The Plastics Industry Awards is a networking event not to be missed and even if you are not a Finalist, it’s still the place to be on Friday 28th September 2018.
