Generation II of the Challenger Lines at the 2017 Fairs

The company develops the second generation of machines for the plastic industry that offers greater productivity gain and better performance

São Paulo, January 2017 - Wortex Máquinas, a manufacturer of equipment for the plastic industry, will take to the fairs of this year's sector - Feiplastic and Plastic Brazil - new recycling solutions with the development of the second generation Challenger Recycler and Compounder lines , Which offers better productivity and performance gains. Plásticos Brasil - International Plastics and Rubber Fair - takes place in March, at São Paulo Expo, and Feiplastic - International Plastics Fair - takes place in April at the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.

The Challenger Recycler line processes a wide variety of wastes from plain / printed and rigid films, efficiently and inexpensively. Recycler equipment uses an efficient forced feed system, which allows the material to be processed without the need for agglutination. Its granulation system is suitable for the processing of all types of thermoplastic, ensuring greater productivity and grain homogeneity optimizing the quality of the final product.

At the fair will be presented the Line Challenger Recycler Generation II which in addition to technical improvements has the capacity to process up to 20% rigid material in the flexible material or process 100% rigid or bonded material. Generation II presents advances in the degasing of highly printed materials with an optional double filtration system for materials with higher levels of contamination.

The Line Challenger Compounder Generation II that also presents great technical and productive improvements. This plastic recycling line is aimed at industries that need to develop and compose their own blends, add mineral fillers and pelletize materials from blowing, injection, thermoforming and others, such as ABS, OS, PP, PE, POM, PC And Nylon. The Compounder is a single-screw extruder, designed to replace quality and efficiency with some double-threaded machines at a very good cost-benefit.

Wortex will also show at the fairs a new line of mills, unprecedented in its design, which can be operated dry or with water, combined with a system of adjustments of knives in a device that is located outside the equipment, which speeds up and brings more safety To the operator. In addition, the company has a film or rigid sorting line, which facilitates the selection of materials and, when coupled to the granulation and washing line, make the cost of recycling very attractive.

After a year of crisis, the plastics industry estimates that in 2017 there will be a recovery in its production. According to Abiplast (Brazilian Association of the Plastic Industry), the projection for 2017 is that the physical production of plastic products grow 2.15%, compared to 2016. The entity expects that the sector's turnover will increase by 1 , 9%, reaching the house of R $ 56.3 billion.
