THE ORIGINAL EXACT TRADEMARK
FOR EDGE TRIM RECOVERY
EXACT originated almost half a century ago, after designing and developing a new edge trim recovery system. The intuition was precise: through a calibrated extraction, compression and cutting process it was possible to regranulate edge trimmings of thermoplastic film without waste, and without alternating the film’s fundamental properties. The end result? A simple to use machine with an extensive utility potential.
With 45 years of continued improvements and success, EXACT graulators have been launched in over 8000 plants worldwide; daily proof of the extraordinary effectiveness of our original intuition.
HOW IT WORKS
Thanks to an Infeed Device and Dancer, the edge trims arrives at a constant speed at the entrance of the Granulator. Conveyor guides then insure correct feeding of the machine.
The trimmings enter the machine and are compressed by special Bushes with a diamond profile. The trimmings are transformed into a semi-rigid web.
The Cutter Wheel divides the webbing into the characterisitic EXACT CHIP, a regranulate of high specific weight that has not undergone transformations due to secondary thermal processes.
The EXACT CHIP can be stored or put back directly into the extrusion process, eliminating the waste material
No further fusion. No alteration or material decay due to the addition of excessive heat
All Granulator machines can be customized to adapt to any working conditions.
Compact Granules with a high specific weight. No fluff and reduced risk of Hopper bridging in refeeding.
Simple and fast change over in material type or colour, with a large decrease in labor and waiting costs.
Rapid return on investment due to its low cost and optimal material recovery potential
Low power consumption due to the absence of fusion and different motorizations starting from just 4Kw.
EXACT granulators have a snmall footprint and minimal operating space is required.
Thanks to EXACT’s Infeed Device it is possible to avoid the use of noisy air trim extraction systems
Thanks to External Syncronism, EXACT granulators regulate the speed of recovery to work in perfect harmony with any system
EXACT granulators have all the strength necessary to recover even very thick films.
EXACT has available all the technology necessary to recover Off-Line reels of any type of material
IN LINE RECOVERY
EXACT granulators are designed to operate in a continuous cycle, recovering edge trim directly from the film producing line, eliminating any risk of contamination due to the storage of the material. The granulator transforms the edge trim into granules which are immediately returned to the extruder Hopper and dosed together with the virgin granule. For best results, we recommend the use of EXACT A.F. Forced Feeders.
OFF LINE RECOVERY
Exact granulators possess all the technology and strength necessary for the recovery of waste reels of any width and/or diameter.
Thanks to Slitter cutting blades, and EXACT’s customized Unwinding Stands it is possible to recover film reels in sectors.
