In addition to strand pelletizing, ips Intelligent Pelletizing Solutions GmbH & Co. KG has also established a solid standing in the market with underwater pelletizing systems. Since the launch of this type of system in 2016, ips has already sold some of ips-UWG 75 S underwater pelletizing systems. Now the first ips-UWG 120 S system for throughputs of up to 2,500 kg/h is to be commissioned at the premises of an extrusion profile producer in Italy. The company manufactures most of the materials required for its production internally. Among other things, these include the appropriate compound for the production of pipework systems. In future, this will be manufactured using an unterwater pelletizing system ips-UWG 120 S.

The annual trade show JEC World is a must for the global composites industry but definitely not a platform where you would expect to see interesting and innovative applications involving thermoplastic elastomers. Although at this year’s JEC World held from 12-14 March in Paris, KraussMaffei showed a successful combination of its proprietary FiberForm process and swivel plate technology for multi-component injection moulding: a centre armrest for the automotive interior with a pleasant to touch TPE surface . The FiberForm process developed by KraussMaffei combines the thermoforming of organo sheets and injection moulding into one process. This process results in fibre-reinforced plastic components that are particularly lightweight yet feature a high level of strength.
