Akro-Plastic Expands German Production Plant

Another compounding line of type FED 72 MTS will be added to the production floor in Niederzissen, Germany (© Akro-Plastic)

In August 2012, with the completion of the construction of the 2nd production hall at Akro-Plastic GmbH in Niederzissen, Germany its capacity expansion was concluded. From the beginning, this new second production hall was designed to house 14 compounding lines, 11 of which were installed in the first four years. To keep up with the growing demand for plastics compounding, Akro-Plastic has now decided to add two more compounding lines by the end of 2017. Following these investments, the compounder will have a current production capacity of over 100,000 tonnes at the Niederzissen location.

Akro-Plastic has developed a unique solution for recycling dry carbon-fiber fabrics which have not yet come into contact with a polymer matrix and incorporating them into a polymer melt, thereby enhancing the added value. Akro-Plastic's carbon-fiber-reinforced type series, called ICF, combines high strength with minimal thickness. The compounds can be manufactured with a carbon fiber content of up to 45 %. The objective of this product line is to achieve a significant weight reduction, particularly in load-bearing components.
