Herbold Meckesheim will be present at FAKUMA 2015

The main topic is how to save costs when plastics are recycled.

The energy and operation costs have recently become decisive factors when plastics are recycled. Machine manufacturers have been called upon to find new solutions in this field. Herbold Meckesheim GmbH have done their homework and at the FAKUMA, will be presenting their new developments that have been produced at Meckesheim near Heidelberg, focusing on this aspect.


Impressive results with the Herbold plastcompactor in plastics recycling.


With the Herbold Plastcompactor further emphasis is placed on compacting. More and more frequently, a plastcompactor is used downstream of a washing/separation unit due to its convincing advantages, as part of which can be mentioned the mixing and homogenizing of big charges.
Herbold plastcompactors are able to agglomerate a wide variety of materials which includes but is not limited to the list below. Thermoplastic materials such as fibres, small tapes, foams, films, Stretch or thin films, fine particles, powder or shavings, Plastic materials that are difficult to convey, to stock and to mix (moist or dry).
The agglomerated material shows excellent flow properties and a high bulk density. As a side product, the agglomeration process achieves an efficient separation of residual humidity. Herbold plastcompactors are available for throughputs of up to 1500 kg/h. In many cases, the production of agglomerate with a plastcompactor is a permanent well-priced alternative compared to a recycling extruder.
