KraussMaffei's unique EdelweissCompounding technology stands out for excellent recompound quality at high throughput rates of several tonnes per hour. This technology is based on an established process that has been further optimized and extended by the machine engineering company. Highlights of the compounding line are the new proprietary cutter-compactor unit for pre-treating post-consumer waste of any type and the two-stage extrusion system composed of two twin-screw-extruders arranged in series for melt processing and compounding. “The Edelweiss compounding line is now available for customer trials in our R&D centre and convinces not only by its innovative technical features, but also by the turnkey concept,” says Carl-Philip Poepel, Director of Product Management Extrusion Technology at KraussMaffei.
True pioneers are never satisfied with the status quo. There is always room for improvement. That is why they question every detail – and sometimes even the entire thing. KraussMaffei is that type of pioneer: We develop trailblazing solutions for our customers. Now we are adding a new twist to the PET sector: The brand-new NETSTAL PET-LINE with side entry. The new series from the Swiss plant in Näfels is launched with a version boasting a clamping force of 4000 kN.
