Coperion Recycling Innovation Center: State-Of-The-Art Test Lab Construction of a new state-of-the-art test laboratory for plastics recycling applications. Forward-looking investment for more sustainability in plastics recycling.
Coperion Recycling Innovation Center: State-Of-The-Art Test Lab
Construction of a new state-of-the-art test laboratory for plastics recycling applications. Forward-looking investment for more sustainability in plastics recycling. Coperion GmbH has initiated the construction of a state-of-the-art recycling test lab at its Niederbiegen/Weingarten, Germany, production facility. The new Coperion Recycling Innovation Center will be built in the immediate vicinity of Coperion’s existing Test Center for Bulk Solids Handling. Driven by rising demands worldwide for a circular plastics economy, a clear trend has taken shape over the last years toward more recycling. Coperion is meeting this trend, not only with its equipment and processes designed for recycling applications, but also with its new Recycling Innovation Center. At the facility, customers will be able to develop and test new, sustainable products and recycling processes together with Coperion’s experts. All essential recycling process stages will be covered within the facility including materials conveying, feeding, extrusion, pelletizing, and materials postprocessing. In addition, Coperion will conduct its own research activities

Coperion K-Tron announces all-new ProRate PLUS Feeder Line
Coperion K-Tron is proud to announce the expansion of the original ProRate™ feeder portfolio with a completely new and cost-effective feeder line called ProRate PLUS. Answering the call from the marketplace for a robust and reliable feeder for simple feeding applications in the plastics industry, Coperion K-Tron developed a completely new feeder line built on 100 years of feeding experience. Economical solution, quick ROI The ProRate PLUS continuous gravimetric feeder line is an economical solution and offers a quick return on investment due to its good price-performance ratio and fast delivery times. It was designed with the specific requirements of the plastics processing industry in mind. These single screw feeders are ideal for the feeding of pellets, granules and other free-flowing bulk materials in secondary plastics applications. ProRate PLUS feeders are available in three sizes and can be installed as individual units or easily arranged in cluster of up to six feeders around a process inlet, depending on the recipe formulation. Compact, space-saving The ProRate PLUS feeder line features a unique design which allows

Smart Production Solutions for the Extrusion of Battery Compounds Research into new Industry 4.0 solutions for the production of lithium-ion batteries, Coperion as a research partner of the Technical University of Braunschweig
Smart Production Solutions for the Extrusion of Battery Compounds
Research into new Industry 4.0 solutions for the production of lithium-ion batteries, Coperion as a research partner of the Technical University of Braunschweig As a project partner, Coperion GmbH, Stuttgart, supports the Technical University of Braunschweig in the research of smart production solutions in the extrusion of battery compounds. The overriding aim of the "DaLion 4.0" project (data mining in the production of lithium-ion battery cells) is to develop new Industry 4.0 approaches for the production of lithium-ion batteries and to use the findings for more efficient and more effective manufacturing. To this end, concepts for cyber-physical production systems are being developed and integrated into the production of battery cells. Continuous production with Coperion twin screw extruders The research project is divided into various areas of activity and is supported by several industrial partners. One key aspect of this research is the investigation and conversion of the mixing process of the electrode slurry from a batch process to continuous extrusion. The continuous extrusion process using a twin screw extruder

Chemical Recycling of Mixed Plastic Waste Coperion Supplies Twin Screw Extruder to Ghent University for Chemical Plastic Recycling.
Chemical Recycling of Mixed Plastic Waste
Coperion Supplies Twin Screw Extruder to Ghent University for Chemical Plastic Recycling. Due to its intensive dispersion and devolatilization output, Coperion’s ZSK twin screw extruder is extremely well suited for energy-efficient chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste. Stuttgart, June 2021 – Coperion is supplying an extrusion system to Ghent University in Belgium for comprehensive research and development tasks in chemical recycling of mixed plastic waste. Coperion designed this laboratory system, built upon a ZSK 18 MEGAlab twin screw extruder, especially for chemical recycling of post-consumer waste within a throughput range of 1-10 kg per hour. Along with the extruder, it includes a feeder from Coperion K-Tron as well as a vacuum unit. Plastic waste, especially packaging waste, is generally a mixture of materials with a high degree of contamination. Recycling this raw material is usually difficult, as sorting and cleaning of waste is in many cases neither economically viable nor technically feasible. Chemical recycling is a promising process

How to Make High-Quality Plastic Compounds Out of Packaging Waste APK Relies on Coperion ZSK Extruder Technology for Newcycling®
How to Make High-Quality Plastic Compounds Out of Packaging Waste
APK Relies on Coperion ZSK Extruder Technology for Newcycling® Stuttgart, October 2020 – For its innovative, solvent-based plastic recycling process Newcycling®, APK AG in Merseburg, is relying on the high-performance ZSK extruder technology and technical process expertise from Coperion. Using the Newcycling® process, multi-polymer and multi-layer plastic packaging, that previously could not be recycled, can now be separated and processed into homogeneous regrind using ZSK twin screw extruders. In contrast to chemical recycling, the polymer in this process remains unchanged and does not require energy- and cost-intensive re-polymerization. Newcycling®, therefore, is highly efficient from a cost and from an environmental perspective. Thanks to the innovative, solvent-based Newcycling® treatment, as well as the excellent devolatilization performance and gentle material handling in the ZSK extruder, the quality of the recyclates is close to that of virgin product. Plastic Waste as Challenge and Opportunity The amount of plastic

Uniform discharge with the new Coperion k-TRON vibratory feeders While maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials
Uniform discharge with the new Coperion k-TRON vibratory feeders
While maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials Free-flowing bulk-solids handling can be tricky. You need to ensure a uniform discharge while maintaining the integrity of fragile, friable, abrasive or fibrous materials. Coperion K-Tron has thoughtfully engineered a line of vibratory feeders that achieve high accuracy via patent pending technology. Chemical Processing spoke with Urs Helfenstein, R&D mechanical engineer, Coperion K-Tron, regarding what makes the K3 vibratory feeders different from other feeding technologies. Q. What factors affect the selection? A. With vibratory devices, there are very different technologies available. For example, there are electric drives, which create a lot of noise. There are pneumatic devices, but pressurized air is an expensive power source. There are rotating masses to create vibration or oscillation. In this case you have moving parts, which means maintenance issues. We went down a new road and examined how masses are balanced. Shock absorbers are essential when it comes to
