Press release date: July 31, 2014

Shanghai, China – PSG® Automatik Plastics Machinery (a Dover Corporation Member) is proud to announce that it has once again been acknowledged as a major contributor to the plastics processing industry.

Building on the strength of a prior recognition bestowed upon its flagship SPHERO® and the introduction of a brand new addition to its line of underwater pelletizers, Automatik has beaten its competition to receive a Ringier “Technology Innovation Award”.

The ceremony will take place in Shanghai in mid-August and endorses the technological advances built into the new SPHERO® S - shown for the first time to the public during Chinaplas 2014. The award demonstrates the German company’s growing success in underwater pelletizing applications and its commitment to technical excellence.

Ideally suited to meet the demands in compounding, masterbatch and recycling applications, the attractively-priced SPHERO® S benefits from:

• a single mobile-frame structure for superior alignment in a smaller footprint

• an upgraded water bypass design for optimum process security and faster start-up

• the highest pellet quality thanks to the optimized design of both the cutting chamber and the knives

• the availability of either manual pressure adjustment or pneumatic pressure control for optimal process stability and reliability

• easy and minimized maintenance, especially for changes of die plates

Complemented by a range of tailor-made Automatik process water systems and dryer configurations, more than 200 SPHERO® underwater pelletizing systems are now in operation worldwide for various thermoplastics as well as for very specific niche products.
