Successful Open House for battenfeld-cincinnati in China
On 21 and 22 May, battenfeld-cincinnati welcomed 210 visitors at its Shunde plant for presentations and extrusion line demonstrations. Toni Bernards, CEO of battenfeld-cincinnati China comments on the Chinaplas and the Open House event, “We had a great show and the Open House, too, was a success. We see that the Chinese market needs both – top performance solutions for high-end applications and turnkey lines for standard products that are simple, easy to handle and quickly available."
At the Open House, the 400 mm line for gas pipe extrusion delivered high outputs and top performance. The solEX 75 single screw extruder presented has, as standard, an AC motor that saves 20% energy compared with a DC motor and achieved outputs of 1,200 kg/h with a low noise level of below 80 db. The proven helix 400 VSI-T pipe head with inner pipe cooling EAC (efficient air cooling) ensured excellent melt homogeneity and pipe quality, with minimized sagging. This is why the combination of solEX and helix VSI-T is also ideal for large diameter solid wall PO pipe extrusion – diameters up to 2.6 m are currently possible. The 400 mm PE-RT line was sold to Hebei BlucicinPlastic Industry Co. Ltd., located at Guan, Hebei Province, before the Open House. The Chinese company produces PVC pipe, PPR pipe, PE pipe, PB/PBOB pipe and also bought the first 32 mm PBOB pipe line produced at battenfeld-cincinnati China in 2013.
The second line on display was a LeanEX line, which is available in five sizes: 63, 160, 250, 400 and 630 mm. The LeanEX concept stands for “lean extrusion”, i.e. simple, turnkey lines for standard PO pipe applications built with European technology and locally sourced screws, barrels, motors and drives.
