High-performance melt filter enables sustainable flake processing In order to be able to process flakes directly on injection molding machines, ENGEL uses the consistently high cleaning effect of the ERF350 high-performance melt filter from Ettlinger
Flakes obtained from plastic waste by grinding can be processed directly in the injection molding process if any foreign substances are thoroughly removed from the melt. The associated technology was developed by injection molding machine manufacturer ENGEL, which chose a high-performance melt filter from Ettlinger, a manufacturer belonging to the Maag Group.
This continuously ensures the required purity and thus enables consistent product quality at a high level of production efficiency. The elimination of a separate pelletizing step conserves material and reduces energy requirements and CO2 emissions, contributing to even greater sustainability in the recycling of plastics.
The heart of the innovative, two-stage technology, which ENGEL will be presenting live for the first time at the K2022 trade fair, is a modular injection molding machine from the duo series, designed for the two-stage process. The ERF350 melt filter from Ettlinger, like the additional degassing
