Batavia, Ohio - With material costs an ever-increasing priority in the plastics industry, injection molders can reap the benefits of material recycling like never before with SB Series pelletizers from Milacron.
SB Series pelletizers - recently featured at NPE2012 - complement Milacron's extrusion pelletizing systems in streamlining the entire material recycling process, enabling molders to bring this valuable capability in house.
Instead of sending scrap material out, companies can pelletize scrap themselves, eliminating many problems associated with third-party handling and processing of regrind. By recycling in house, molders gain more control over turnaround time, integrity of materials, consistency and other factors. As a result, the system helps decrease overall costs while also satisfying the industry's continuing quest to be more environmentally sustainable.
A cost-effective, easy-to-clean, robust system designed to process the entire range of thermoplastics, the SB Series was created to be a production unit, able to run 24 hour a day, 7 days a week. With increasing demand for customers to reduce costs to complete globally while similarly maintaining high levels of sustainability, the pelletizer is a great way to use scrap material and reduce manufacturing's carbon footprint.
Milacron's pelletizing process is designed with ease of use in mind, so that injection molders and extrusion companies alike stand to experience a short learning curve with immediate results. With a variety of system combinations available, the company can create a solution for nearly any application.
The SB series of strand pelletizers offers benefits including:
∑ Easy Access for Maintenance and Cleaning: No tools required to open the exterior cutting chamber cover; removable feed table assembly conveniently swings away for cleaning.
∑ Safety: Interlock system prevents one's ability to bypass the switch with a simple bolt or pen.
∑ Uniform Pulling Force: With a simple design that features a large pneumatic 2Ĺ" bore cylinder located on the cover, the upper roll remains parallel to the lower feed roll when multiple strands are being processed, resulting in a uniform pulling force on all strands.
