Retrofitting Used Machines
We provide comprehensive technical support throughout all your plant engineering phases, including design, CAD/CAE, machine building and also provide functional interfaces to all other machines and equipment. We make production lines tailored to your needs and install turnkey systems on-site. Our pilot plant is available to you for application consulting and testing.
As part of our custom order processing, we guarantee short response times, fast service for repairs and worn parts as well as wear measurements of barrels and screw elements. Besides our flexible spare parts service, we support you with our on-site customer service at any time. Our aim is to offer customised solutions and process engineering advice.
Parts and Accessories
We always keep a large selection of essential spare parts in our warehouse. Even large extruder components such as standard size motors and gearboxes can be delivered at short notice. We can custom-manufacture special components in our own well-equipped production facility. Standard parts include barrels and screw elements, shafts and coupling sleeves and side feeders.
Cylinders and screw unit wear measurements are carried out on-site with our state-of-the-art measuring equipment. We provide you with a written report including a wear analysis and an optional replacement recommendation.
Used Machines and Equipment
Our product offering regularly includes pre-owned extruders and complete extrusion lines, which undergo thorough inspections and overhauls at our Sinzig plant prior to delivery. We will also gladly provide leasing packages customised to meet your needs.
Basic Overhaul of Machines and Equipment
We can conduct a basic overhaul or retrofit of your machine ‒ covering everything from the mechanics and the electrical system to the control technology. This will bring your extruder up to state-of-the-art technology standards making your production even more competitive.
Process Know-How Application Consulting
Our specialists provide consulting services for product changes as well as capacity and plant expansions. We can help you with screw and barrel configurations, process consulting, machine design and planning, project management, fitting and commissioning as well as all your training needs.
Our well-equipped pilot plant is available for testing, including tests conducted under production conditions. Test data can be recorded and analysed at a later date using integrated data systems. The accredited test laboratory connected to the facility also offers a wide range of analysis options.
Services and Test Centre
In our Technical Centre, you can perform tests on the wearproof co-rotating twin-screw extruder FED 43 or 52 MTS. The processing length can be extended from 32 L/D to 42 L/D and 52 L/D. Tasks such as blending, filling and reinforcing can be performed to produce everything from standard or technical plastics through to high-performance plastics. For this, the system includes up to thirteen metering feeders, three side extruders, vacuum degassing, strand and underwater pelletising, a classification screen, a spiral conveyor, suction conveying, a bagging machine with scales and many other items. The compounding lines are also available to masterbatch manufacturers to test extrusion starting from premix.
