From extrusion to granulation

Horizontal granulator as process step for the production of lightweight granulates High-strength rigid foam materials are an important material-relevant component for the realisation of modern lightweight constructions for the aircraft and automotive industry as well as medical technology. Their production is based amongst others on the processing of high-quality plastic granulates from extruded copolymer semi-finished products. […]

GETECHA presents efficient granulation solutions

Visit us at our booth 9A09 in hall 9 ! As developer and manufacturer of modern granulation and processing plants, Getecha is one of the leading system integrators of the plastics and recycling industry. Based on the hopper and infeed granulators from its rotary cutter machine range, the company realises mostly automated complete solutions including project-specifically configured […]

Efficient pulling in and processing of edge trims

Getecha granulation technology enables recovery of extrusion waste Everywhere in the plastics industry, waste and residue from production are fed into treatment circuits, and are recycled as recyclable materials. In order to enable this automated and highly efficient recovery plants, the German company Getecha provides an attractive portfolio of mostly standardised granulators amongst others. Here you […]

The right moment for cap and canister

Many of the systems known today for the machine closing of canisters with screw caps cannot really convince in practice. Most of them lack the necessary “sensitivity” as well as accuracy and flexibility. Now, however, plant constructor Getecha has developed a new automatic screwing machine on the basis of its engineering know-how, which makes you […]

Films from three rollers and piles of plates

With the objective to create more space for its production and to centralise the entire granulation technology, the packaging material manufacturer Pro-Pac established a new hall at the Vechta site two years ago. In time, more and more granulation machines for the processing of residues and faulty parts from different thermoforming and extrusion processes moved […]

Fast cut in the exhaust air flow

With its FS 200 and FS 300 foil cutters, Getecha offers manufacturers and operators of film processing plants two high-performance units for the efficient cutting of continuous strips from edge trimming. The compact units can be integrated into the blower or exhaust air flow and can also be combined with the hopper granulators of the […]

Granulation technology goes Industry 4.0

As soon as granulators are to be integrated into the automated processes of plastics processing, planners and automating companies start to also focus on their information- and communication-related integration. For this reason, Getecha increasingly equips the larger central granulators of its rotary cutter series in particular with intelligent Industry 4.0 functions. Granulation of large polypropylene panels: […]

Modular flexibility from one source

For a manufacturer of plastic containers, Getecha recently implemented a multi-station line for the fully automated packaging of new PET drinks bottles of various sizes. The line is directly linked to the production line and makes up to 6.000 bottles ready for dispatch per hour. Thanks to its modular design, Getecha can adapt the line […]

The core: The large granulator

The powerful large Rotary Cutter granulators from Getecha constitute the core equipment of recycling process lines in many recycling plants. The Aschaffenburg company not only supplied the granulators for a Dutch recycling plant but also large parts of the conveying, dust extraction and packaging equipment. CVB Ecologistics, with headquarters in the Dutch city of Tilburg, […]

What remains of the capsule

Due to the process, large quantities of missing parts are produced during the high-speed thermoforming of espresso cups from multi-layer plastic foils. With process-integrated system solutions consisting of extraction and grinding technology, plant manufacturer Getecha ensures that this waste is removed directly from production and continuously recycled. Of the approximately 1.200 coffee capsules produced by a […]
