Introduction

Discover the factors that can help you determine whether a beside-the-press granulator is ideal for your plastics processing operation.

No matter what type of process is the mainstay of your plastics manufacturing operation – injection molding, thermoforming, extrusion – every floor manager knows that the waste materials generated can be significant. Ideally, those materials are reclaimed back into the process. By grinding the plastic materials down to a size that’s similar to the virgin material, you drastically decrease waste and use less of that new material in the process.

Regardless of the size of your operation or type of manufacturing process, regrinding of plastic components has the potential to create substantial savings. There are multiple types of size reduction equipment including shredders and granulators that can be used to transform the material into a more useable state. The type of machines utilized in a process depend on the material characteristics, size and density. Considering the annual savings over many manufacturing runs, it’s vital that the right type of granulator is chosen based on your unique plastic processing operation, type of materials, labor, floor and storage space, and many other factors.
