Feeder for Natural, Wood and Long Carbon Fibers, as well as Shredded Film
Force-Fed Fiber Screw
While fiber feeding was until now oriented to very short, compact fiber bundles, such as glass fibers, the new unit from Brabender Technologie GmbH & Co. KG, Duisburg, Germany, can now meter natural fibers, wood fibers, long carbon fibers or shredded film. The ISC-FC Plus works with a special fiber screw, large-area steep-walled hopper and special agitator design and positioning for force-feeding of the screw.
A clear application for the at K 2016 introduced fiber feeder is to process shredded film strips from the film edge trimmer, which can be returned to the process chain as flakes. The device is also suitable for natural fibers, which can be fed continuously for filling materials or wood-plastics composites (WPC). The FiberXpert feeder also recycles residues from carbon fiber parts, which are difficult to dispose of, for reuse.
