Removal of Metal From Plastics
24 Drawer Filter Magnets were manufactured at our European HQ in Berkhamsted, UK. The Drawer Filter Magnets were destined for metal removal from plastics in a plastic product production operation in France.
“The Drawer Filter Magnet is one of our most popular magnetic separators,” said Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales.
The order for the Drawer Filter Magnets was secured by Bunting’s local representative in France, BMS. BMS specialise in providing technical support to the plastics sector.

Metal Removal from Plastics
During the manufacturing process of any plastic or plastic product, it is possible for metal to be introduced into the process. This could be from a wide variety of sources including the wear of processing machinery.
If metal contamination is not removed, it can damage processing equipment and result in increased final product rejects. The Drawer Filter Magnets are used to attract, hold and thus remove any magnetically susceptible metal contamination.
Another Export Order
“This is another great export order for Bunting,”said Hills. “Despite all the concerns about BREXIT, we continue to work hard supporting our regionally based distributors. This is paying dividends as our sales overseas continue to rise.”
