TDC Line 2
HVTSE® system

Processing Technologies International, LLC (PTi), Aurora, IL announces the recent sale of one of its Technology Development Center's (TDC) demonstration production sheet extrusion lines. PTi's TDC permits customers to conduct sheet extrusion process trials on brand new full-scale production equipment, often using their own materials to demonstrate the overall equipment performance and related features.

This PTi TDC system includes a HVTSE® (high vacuum twin screw extruder) Model 85mm-52D DryerLESS™ extruder, G-SERIES® GSVD661824 sheet take off unit and an ACW6640/2 dual position differential shaft winding system that will be utilized in the production of PPE (Covid-19 related personal protection equipment). It offers an output capacity of 2,200 pph (1,000 kg/hr) and was one of two unique demonstration lines running in the PTi TDC facility - the second of which is a SUPER-G® HighSPEED™ Model 3000-36D (75mm) system with an output capacity processing PP up to 2,500 pph (1,130 kg/hr).

PTi and its Mexico based sales agent, Grupo Janfrex, began working together as recent as last October and six months later have successfully sold its first line together. The buyer of the line, Laminados Extrudios Plasticos, also known as Laminex, is one of the largest suppliers of extruded sheet in Mexico with an extensive product offering.

With the PTi HVTSE® DryerLESS™ system purchase, Laminex can now introduce PET into its manufactured product portfolio and better align itself competitively in the rapidly evolving sheet extrusion market within Mexico. With manufacturing facilities in Guadalajara, Mexico and Fort Worth, Texas, coupled with distribution warehouses in Mexico City and Monterrey, Mexico, Laminex will locate the line in the Guadalajara facility to provide locally produced PET sheet, thus reducing import dependencies with superior sheet quality and immediate availability.

Laminex desired to acquire PET sheet extrusion technology that would permit them to compete with anyone in the marketplace. With PTi's unique and advanced technologies represented in the HVTSE® DryerLESS™ system purchase, Laminex's objectives were soon realized. The system's multi-resin capability provides Laminex the added flexibility to run many resins from one line and features a twin-screw extruder that operates under high vacuum to eliminate the need for drying and crystallizing PET/PLA feed stocks, while removing moisture up to 12000+ ppm (more than twice the normalized undried moisture levels for this geographic region). This technology also allows processing up to 100% regrind materials - a critical component for energy savings and recycling.

Precision machinery offering high production rates, combined with flexible resin capabilities and supported by a professional responsive equipment partner like PTi, will help Laminex ascend to the next level as a leading producer of extruded sheet throughout the entire North American markets and perhaps beyond.
