Product portfolio of battenfeld-cincinnati includes customized solutions to fit every specific application in the WPC/NFC industry. The fiberEX extruder series is perfectly geared to meeting the requirements of WPC/NFC materials, the extrusion lines are completed by downstream components to match. The latest new development is the fiberEX 93-34D extruder, which is extremely economical in operation and capable of processing a great variety of different formulations with a single plasticizing unit.
During a demonstration at the international AMI WPC Conference in Vienna in November 2014, battenfeld-cincinnati showed a complete line with a fiberEX 93–34D extruder, which reached an output of 380 kg/h – a performance absolutely comparable with outputs in PVC profile production. On this line, a hollow WPC profile for decking applications was manufactured from PVC with a 50% content of rice husks.
As material costs amount to up to 80% of the total production costs, battenfeld-cincinnati offers a great variety of coextrusion concepts, which can be adapted to the use of low-cost filler materials such as rice husks, mineral fillers or recycled fibers.
As the technology leader in WPC extrusion, battenfeld-cincinnati stands for optimized product quality, solutions in all output categories and large process windows for flexible machine concepts. Functionality, easy operation, process reliability and cost-efficiency are also vital factors – from planning and design all the way to commissioning the complete line on site. The WPC/NFC extrusion portfolio is rounded off by an extensive network of competent partners along the entire value chain, as well as customized, wear-optimized metallurgical solutions.
