Recycling of Thermoplastics: System Overview — Advantages — Cost Savings
Christian Feller, Area Sales Manger, NGR — Next Generation Recyclingmaschinen GmbH (Austria)
After an overview of Next Generation Recycling Machines GmbH you will learn about technological basics of different systems currently on the market. Differences in recycling machines combination such as Grinder-Silo-Extruder, Shredder-Densifier-Extruder, or Cutter-Extruder will be explained. The advantages and disadvantages will be discussed. You will learn about the patented, easy to use, ONE-STEP System. This revolutionary cutter-extruder combination makes the entire recycling process more economical by combining a powerful single-shaft cutter with an extruder into one unit. That eliminates the need for pre-cutting and densification of the material. An example movie of cutting plastic material is also shown. Several examples of materials and applications are given, followed by a more detailed explanation of the NGR product mix. NGR has developed four types of recycling machines to cope with every customer need in thermoplastic reuse. The very innovative product range allows an output from 10 kg/h up to 2.000 kg/h. The customer can use the recycling machines In-Line, Stand-Alone, or in both ways. The importance of recycling of thermoplastic waste will be stressed. The increasing scarcity of rough materials and the worsening price situation force plastics manufacturers to seek for alternative means of supply. Recycling is the modern answer to the current market pressure. Starting up your own recycling line already makes sense if there is more than approx. 250 tons of thermoplastic waste per year that emerge from the production process. Example figures are given. inally the customer advantages are shown in a brief summarization.
