At K 2019, which is scheduled for Oct. 16-23 in Dusseldorf, Germany, plastic recycling equipment manufacturer Lindner, based in Austria, will showcase turnkey system solutions for plastics reprocessing that create material suitable for subsequent extrusion. The company says it also will display the next generation of its Micromat shredder series and a new hot-wash system.
“Consumers around the world are demanding that resources—and particularly polymers— are used sustainably and responsibly,” says Harald Hoffmann, managing director at Lindner WashTech. “Many manufacturers are already responding to this trend by trying to provide as many products as possible with at least some recycled material. Current developments also place ever higher demands on recycled materials. As a result, more and more companies are requesting input materials of high quality and purity for their extruders. We focus on laying the groundwork for optimum subsequent processing with our signature shredding and washing technologies.”
However, it is not only the quality of the recycled plastic that counts but also economically efficient processing, Lindner states in a news release announcing its plans for K 2019.
“Excessive expenditure has a direct impact on the costs of the end product. It is therefore important that processing systems operate at maximum productivity,” says Stefan Scheiflinger-Ehrenwerth, head of product management at Lindner. “We have harnessed our experience over recent years to develop innovations and further optimize our existing portfolio. Besides the next generation of our tried-and-tested Micromat shredder series and a completely overhauled cutting system, we concentrated our development efforts on finding the ideal combination of shredding, washing, sorting and drying components. Furthermore, by having implemented NIR (near-infrared) sorting technology and the new hot-wash system, we now sport a product range brimming with well-engineered, high-quality components for optimum output. At K 2019, we will be showcasing turnkey system solutions that give our clients the confidence to face the latest challenges head-on," Scheiflinger-Ehrenwerth adds.
In addition to the indoor exhibition space in hall nine, booth D78/E75, Lindner Recyclingtech and its subsidiary, Germany-based Lindner WashTech, will showcase their equipment in the outside area, booth 15.2, for the first time. The companies will display their system solution, which consists of a shredder and a mechanical dryer.
