New innovations in metal separation for the plastics industry to be launched at show.
NEWTON, KS – Bunting Magnetics Co. is the leader in plastics for moving, detecting, separating and holding metal. From single components or complete systems, Bunting® offers a full line of equipment for recycling, injection molding, blow molding and extrusion equipment. Since the company’s 1959 founding, it has led the plastics industry in innovation, durability and performance. The company’s newest solutions, including a high-temperature drawer magnet, stainless steel separator, will be on display at NPE 2018, held May 7-11 in Orlando. Featured products include:
FF350 High-Temperature Drawer Filter
Offering the most complete line of drawer magnets in the industry, Bunting will highlight one of its newest innovations, the FF350 High-Temperature Drawer Filter – rated to 350 degrees F. Because the high heat required in today’s molding and extrusion applications can diminish strength and holding power, the FF350 includes upgraded rare earth magnets for stronger hold and longer life. The new design fits the standard FF housing, so existing equipment can be modified to meet changing needs. Upgrades also include a polycarbonate viewing window and higher temperature rated seals and knobs.
Selecting and combining the proper equipment is essential to optimize the purification of product, maximize equipment output and protect it from serious damage and repairs. The Grinder Feeder Conveyor is used for shredding and grinding plastic purgings to scrap bumpers, stringers, carpet, wood pellets, plastic bottles, tires or even glass bottles or wood pallets. The GFC handles 1,000-10,000 pounds per hour and uses 6″ to 10″ pulleys. It’s durable, with formed steel frame construction and offers multiple belt options with standard cleats or cleat-topped belts. By choosing to combine the GFC with optional metal detectors with flip gate reject of contaminant, infeed hoppers, magnetic pulleys or mobile bases, companies can design exactly the equipment it needs to achieve maximum separation and optimize product purity.
Until Bunting invented stainless steel separation, it didn’t exist. With superior engineering and magnetic finite element design software technology, the High Intensity Separation Conveyor® (HISC®) attracts, holds and extracts work-hardened 300 stainless steel metals and para-magnetic chips from plastic product stream to achieve product purities once thought impossible. The HISC incorporates extremely high gauss fields, neodymium rare earth magnets and a field-tested design to achieve maximum stainless steel separation. It attracts, holds and extracts some of the weakest magnetic materials, including razor blades, small computer screws, small stainless sheet metal from computer hard drives, tiny screws in plastic chips and green boards with attached chips.
Bunting built its company and its reputation in the plastics industry by working alongside organizations to solve metal separation challenges. To learn more about the any of our solutions, visit Bunting Magnetics Co. at NPE, Booth #W-5563
