Making its fourth consecutive appearance at this year’s K show, FEDDEM GmbH & Co. KG is a manufacturer of extrusion and compounding lines.
The company will use this year’s event to focus on its extensive portfolio of complete systems for a wide range of applications, as well as its LFT-PT long-fibre pultrusion lines.
FEDDEM will present its LFT pultrusion technology at K 2019
The mechanical engineering experts based in Sinzig, Germany, will present their latest equipment series for producing LFT-PT compounds.
Compounders must cope with frequent product changes, and minimising changeover times is therefore key to success. FEDDEM not only supplies compounding lines tailored to specific applications; with its MTS/MTV series of extruders and ICX Technology, the company also offers optimal conditions for minimising the costs and efforts involved in changing product. Klaus Hojer, Business Development and Account Manager at FEDDEM, said: "Thanks to our kneading block-free screws and FEDDEM mixing elements (FME), we are in a position to extend the range of applications of a given screw configuration when processing related compounds and, consequently, we reduce the need for frequent screw changes."
At K 2019, the engineering specialists from Sinzig will exhibit the FED 26 MTS 32 L/D twin-screw extruder with a pre-assembled 10 L/D extension unit that can extend the extruder to 42 L/D. This enables the compounder to convert the processing length of the extruder within a few hours to adapt to mixing processes that require a longer or shorter processing section.
