Magnetic Separators & Metal Detectors for Plastics Industry

On stand G16 at K 2016, Bunting will be displaying a range of Metal Separation equipment including Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors specifically designed for the plastics and rubber industries.  Metal contamination is a common problem within the Plastics and Rubber industries, causing product defects and damaging processing equipment.  The type of metal can range from small fine metal to larger screws or nuts and bolts.  Effective removal is essential and achieved by using the right Metal Separation equipment installed in the correct location.

“When customers visit our stand we want to show them the separation capabilities of our equipment.  It is one thing to say a piece of ferrous or non-ferrous metal will be separated, but another to actually show it happening,” said Hills.

“We will be demonstrating the Metal Separator.  Metal contaminated plastic will be gravity fed into a feed hopper and immediately into a FF Drawer Magnet.  Here magnetic particles are captured before the remaining plastic falls into the Metal Detector which identifies and rejects any non-ferrous metals,” said Hills.  “Visitors will also be able to see Tube Magnets being passed over metal and the force in which it is attracted.”

Hills is excited by the opportunities at the show.  “The K Show is the number one exhibition for the Plastics and Rubber industry in Europe and one of the premier events on the global calendar.  We [Bunting] have been helping the industry solve their metal contamination problems for decades.  Having a stand and demonstrating our Metal Separators is really important and we look forward to helping companies address the costly issue of metal contamination.”

At K, Bunting is also looking to meet potential marketing agents and distributors to join the expanding global representative network.  If this is of interest, please contact Dave Hills (dhills@buntingeurope.com) to arrange a meeting on the stand.
