For some months now, KraussMaffei’s R&D centre at the Hanover site has been equipped with an advanced industrial-scale recompounding system. With the new system KraussMaffei substantially extends its capacities for customer trials and its own testing activities associated with recycling and recompounding processes. Interested customers can carry out industrial-scale trials on the new EdelweissCompounding line in at the R&D centre. The line is composed of two ZE 65 BluePower twin-screw extruders and designed for a maximum output rate of 2,000 kg/h. The combination of two twin-screw extruders enables high degassing capacities, efficient odour removal, ideal dispersive and dispersing mixing effect, gentle melt treatment at a high throughput rate, the company says.
