Royal DSM has initiated an extensive modernisation and expansion of their high-performance materials compounding plant in Evansville (Indiana, USA). For this project, Royal DSM continues its successful 40-year partnership with MAAG Group supplying several automatic strand pelletising lines (Jet Stream Granulation System – JSG).
The automatic JSG strand pelletising systems from MAAG Group are designed to achieve highest throughput rates in plastics compounding. Over the last 20 years, MAAG Group has developed its JSG systems for various pelletising applications. Typically, its customers choose the Jet Stream Systems when a high level of automation and machine availability at the best possible pellet quality is required. The specialty of those machines is that starting from the die head the process handling is fully automated and therefore once the pelletising process is set up manual interaction is not necessary anymore. That makes the JSG systems particularly popular for the pelletising of highly filled compounding products as well as high quality recycling applications.
“The JSG machine has a great advantage for our customers compared to the normal strand pelletising system. The JSG guarantees a consistent granulate quality throughout, meeting the highest demands. It is mostly used to process high-priced polymers. Due to the high level of automation, strand breaks are immediately fed back into the pelletiser during production”, said Harald Zang, General Manager Sales. “This avoids waste, increases the productivity of the machine and thus generates increased turnover and profit.”
Depending on the customer needs MAAG Group can set up different features and process parameters of the Jet Stream Systems and react on certain material properties and throughput ranges. As customers know, perfect pellet quality starts at the extrusion of the polymer strands at the die head. With 65 years of experience in plastic pelletising, MAAG Group takes care of the complete process know-how starting from the melt pump and can therefore serve a wide field of applications and offer tailored solutions for customers.
