With the Ingrinder, WITTMANN BATTENFELD has created an innovative solution to promote the recycling economy. This product is an injection molding system with integrated sprue picker, granulator and vacuum conveyor. The granulator and the sprue picker can be operated via the machine’s UNILOG B8 control system.
WITTMANN BATTENFELD presents this innovation on a machine from the servo-hydraulic SmartPower series, a SmartPower 60/210. On the machine, a can with a lid is produced from PS with a 2-2-cavity mold. A WP50 sprue picker from WITTMANN with swivel drive removes the sprue and passes it to the G-Max granulator integrated in the system. The material recycled by the granulator is then transported to the machine’s material hopper by a FEEDMAX S3 vacuum conveyor. The WITTMANN vacuum conveyors enable alternating conveyance of virgin material and regrind, so that a thorough blend is created by this process, together with discharge of the material into the hopper.
