Polystar hails “Simple and Flexible” Repro-Flex recycling system at K 2016

At K 2016, Taiwan-based Polystar will present its recycling machines based on the concept of “Simple in design, Flexible in operation”.

With successful experience and customer’s feedback, the company noted that some other electronic control systems of recycling machines are “over-computerized”. Once the software of the control system is breakdown, the machinery will shut down and affect the production.

Thus, Polystar developed the intelligent “Auto” and “Manual” dual control system. The operation is said to be more user friendly and efficient compared with control systems from European company.

The company has established a complete, easy maintenance guide, spare parts replacement instruction, machine operation guide, commonly asked trouble shooting tool, etc. The user can review these guide tools via on-line platform and make the operation more simple and easy. Moreover, a “Spare parts on-line” system is built on Polystar’s web shop to satisfy the immediate need from customers.

Polystar’s Repro-Flex one-step plastic recycling machine is designed for the reprocessing of polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and polypropylene (PP) flexible packaging material, both printed and non-printed. It combines cutting, extrusion and pelletizing into one compact recycling line.

The cutter compactor of the recycling machine prepares (pre-conditions) the material into an ideal condition for the extrusion process and feed the material directly into the extruder with a centrifugal force.

Compared with conventional recycling machines, Polystar said this integrated system does not require a separate crusher, and therefore, eliminates the problem of inconsistent feeding (over-feeding or insufficient feeding).
