Milacron delivers big in China

Cincinnati Milacron Extrusion Systems (Batavia, OH) has delivered its first natural fiber/plastic composite extrusion line to a Chinese processor, Nanjing Jufeng. The line, rated at 2600 kg/hr, is China’s largest, according to Milacron. The processor is using rice husks as filler.

“Jufeng operates 15 domestically sourced lines and it has effectively doubled its capacity through addition of this single line,” says Jay Woerner, VP for Asian operations at Milacron. Better product quality, less energy consumption, lower screw wear, and greater uptime pushed the equation in favor of the imported line, he told MPW during a visit to his company at last week’s Chinaplas exhibition.

In related news, sister company Uniloy Milacron recently delivered its first structural foam machine to China. A processor in Zhejiang Province is using the unit to mold large storage containers and pallets. [email protected]
