An extrusion system is, in the last resort, a system to produce plastic materials, processing raw materials and turning it into a different more refined and complex end material.
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.
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.
Strong growth is driving the market of screen changers intended for plastics industry, backed by an ongoing evolution. Reliable forecasts for the near future are essential to any operator from the plastics extrusion sector.
