E-shots Web-exclusive: Rapid and Moditec tie the knot

Article-E-shots Web-exclusive: Rapid and Moditec tie the knot

After a seven-year relationship based on technology collaboration, Rapid Granulator AB (Bredaryd, Sweden; and France-based Moditec have taken it to the next level. Rapid acquired Moditec on Oct. 16, instantly adding to its offerings very slow-speed/screenless granulators capable of grinding everything from small sprues and rejects to automotive bumpers and dashboards. Moditec will continue to operate under its own name.

In addition to expanding Rapid's product line, the acquisition brings to the table Moditec's integrated metal detection technology, which minimizes equipment breakdown by quickly stopping the granulator's rotor if metal is detected. Rapid hopes to apply this technology to its entire slow-speed range in the near future.

“Following our integration into the overall Rapid slow-speed portfolio, we are expecting significant growth for Moditec,” says Gilles Dutour, managing director at Moditec.
