Battenfeld: Line concepts custom-made for the Russian market

At the Interplastica in Moscow from January 31 to February 2, 2007, Battenfeld Extrusionstechnik GmbH, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, will present information about its tailor-made extrusion lines for the production of pipes, profiles and thermoforming sheet at its booth No. FD 51 in the showground pavilion.

Russia has developed into one of the most important export markets for the German machine manufacturer. Battenfeld Extrusionstechnik has responded to the rising demand for high-performance machinery concepts by offering turnkey extrusion lines with perfectly matching machine components from dosing unit to semi-finished product handling, and with each line entirely synchronized by one control system.

Especially for the manufacture of small technical profiles, such as IC tubes or decorative profiles for the furniture and automotive industries, as well as for the refrigeration and air conditioning industries, Battenfeld Extrusionstechnik offers the new techBEX line. This standardized line, entirely manufactured and assembled by Battenfeld in China for the world market, is about 30% cheaper than other known standard lines, yet on a high technological level.

For pipe manufacturers, the German machine manufacturer also offers a number of tailor-made machine concepts. Battenfeld Extrusionstechnik is the market leader in large-diameter pipe extrusion lines. Over the last three years alone, it has sold 20 pipe extrusion lines to manufacture polyolefin pipes with diameters of more than 800 mm.

Mature line concepts are available as well for the growth market of aluminum-plastic composite pipes, which is continuously winning more market shares in the heating and sanitary installations industry, due to combining the positive attributes of the metal, i.e. easy laying compatibility and dimensional stability, with the resistance to corrosion and incrustation of plastic pipes. In partnership with Templet Deutschland GmbH, Seligenstadt, Germany, Battenfeld Extrusionstechnik has designed a complete line for the production of aluminum composite pipes at the record speed of 50 m/min.

With the High Performance Sheet Line, an extrusion line incorporating a high-speed 75 mm single-screw extruder with an output of up to 1,600 kg/h, the machine manufacturer has met the rising demand for cost-efficient production of top-quality packaging sheet. The High Performance Sheet Line is suitable for producing PP, PET, PE and PS sheet with thicknesses from 200 µm.
