For the third time in a row, Feddem GmbH & Co. KG will be exhibiting at the K trade show, Europe’s biggest bash for the plastics industry held every three years in Dusseldorf, Germany. As a manufacturer of extrusion and compounding lines and a member of the Feddersen Group, the company’s focus this year will be its expertise as a supplier of complete systems.
Using a true-to-scale model, the Feddem team will present its ICX (Innovative Compounding and Extrusion) technology concept for supplying complete compounding lines, developed in partnership with sister company Akro-Plastic. The machine builder will focus on the benefits for its customers: high-quality compounds and flexibility at a competitive price, with short response times.
Feddem supplies the same system technology worldwide regardless of the production site, ensuring identical product quality at all locations.
The company will also be exhibiting its FED 26 MTS pilot plant station extruder with enhanced wear protection. The extruder is customizable and can thus be used for a broad range of applications and a variety of compounding jobs. This will be demonstrated with an extension unit, side feeder and side vacuum degassing unit.
Thanks to its modular design, the extruder can be extended in just a few steps from 32 D to 42 D, 52 D or more. The entire electrical system is integrated into the frame and the machine stands on castors, making it mobile and easy to move. Depending on the area of application, the FED 26 MTS achieves production rates between 10 and 150 kg/h.
Feddem can supply machines for every type of compounding job. In addition to MTS installation sizes between 26 and 82 mm and a product-dependent operational capacity between 40 kg and 4 t/h, extruders with a larger Do/Di and a screw diameter up to more than 135 mm are currently available for the manufacture of high-fill plastics compounds.
Another area explored by the company in recent projects is the development of new machines and equipment used to manufacture of high-fill polyolefins. In addition, Feddem’s range of services extends to replacement parts supply, used machine reconditioning and on-site customer service.
Feddem can be found in Hall 15, at booth A42.
