Today, major sector changes must be considered when designing and manufacturing screen changers intended for plastic extrusion, as well as for any other industrial sector, paying special attention to emerging development models connected with Industry 4.0.
In the circular economy model, plastics is a key element. Today, all plastics products are designed and manufactured with recycling in mind to avoid wasting resources and to minimize climate impact.
In plastics recycling process, several aspects must be considered to optimize efficiency and effectiveness of recycled plastics extrusion systems: sorting, grinding, shredding, washing, filtering, extrusion, just to name a few.
We are proud to announce that Cofit has been nominated as finalist for Plastics Recycling Awards Europe 2019. At Plastics Recyclers Europe, the judges have put Gorillabelt T – Cofit automatic and continuous screen changer – on the shortlist for the best “Recycling Machinery Innovation of the Year”.
At Cofit, we have spent more than 50 years in designing and manufacturing screen changers intended for plastic extrusion.
In plastics industry, filtering post-consumer waste is becoming increasingly strategic. In the circular economy era, using clean raw materials for plastic extrusion is getting less accessible and more expensive.
Of course, technically speaking, our plant manufactures automatic and continuous screen changers.
In the circular economy, plastics recycling plays a key role and filtering of highly-contaminated post-consumer plastics materials becomes a strategic solution in any plastics production backdrop.
If you are running a plastic recycling extrusion line, you already know that contaminant filtering is one of the most important job to accomplish.
For all processors and transformers involved in extrusion plastics, particularly in compound production, the use of correct process material is critical, and filtering is key.
