Erema expands in the U.S.

Erema North America, Inc., a subsidiary of Erema Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen GmbH, says that due to high demand—especially in post-consumer recycling—the company will continue to expand in the U.S.

At its facility in Ipswich, MA, Erema North America has a trial center that covers about 1,000-sqm (10, 764 sq-ft) of floor space, which features three recycling systems for trials. The company plans to expand it even more to 2,400-sqm (25,833 sq-ft) and install a new system, which will be an Intarema 1108 TVEplus with Laserfilter. The expansion of the trial center will get underway in March 2015 and completion is scheduled for late summer 2015. 

"Our North America base represents a major Erema investment showing a strong commitment to North American customers," said Mike Horrocks, CEO of Erema North America. "The facility is a valuable link to Erema's global headquarters in Austria, allowing customers easy access to Erema equipment, technical support and vast reservoir of knowledge derived from decades of plastics recycling throughout the world."

NPE highlights 

At NPE, Erema will exhibit the Intarema 1108 TVEplus with Laserfilter at booth W-5673. Another Erema highlight will be its latest product innovation -  the Intarema K. During the show, visitors can see how the in-house recycling solutions can maintain consistent end product quality while saving production and labor costs at the same time, according to the company.

The new, fully automatic processing system is designed for the recycling of PE edge trim and is the successor model of the previous KAG system.

In-house recycling solutions for flexible plastic packaging are a core competency at Erema – some 2,000 of the over 4,000 Erema systems sold around the world operate in this application field. 

One of the key benefits of the new system, according to Erema, is the direct feeding of the endless edge trim via piping and cyclone which takes place automatically and offers maximum flexibility through possible combinations of cyclone, roller intake or the conveyor belt. As a result, pre-cutting of the edge trim is not necessary. This efficiency boost results in high-quality, clean pellets, up to 100% of which can be returned to the production process. Intarema K systems can be integrated in production lines as well as installed externally as an offline system.
