FEDDEM: ICX® technology expanded to include LFT process

News 19.10.2017
The FED 52 MTX extruder is on exhibit at Fakuma 2017

At Fakuma 2017 the mechanical engineering firm FEDDEM GmbH & Co. KG from Sinzig/Germany has debuted a line concept for manufacturing LFT compounds based on pultrusion technology. The ICX® technology concept presented at K 2016 has been expanded to include LFT technology enabling global production of high-quality plastic compounds.

In developing their own pultrusion technology, FEDDEM has overhauled and optimised all relevant line components, including the clamping device tentioner, impregnating tool die and take-off unit. "Factors that were particularly important to us during this development project were the product quality of the LFT compounds, a cost effective production process and a high degree of flexibility", explains Dieter Groß, Managing Director of FEDDEM.

FEDDEM used the same ethos to develop their LFT technology as they did to develop their ICX® (Innovative Compounding and Extrusion) technology, which was developed in partnership with AKRO-PLASTIC to supply complete compounding lines. The company's focus has always been to provide benefits for its customers: Dieter Groß sums up the concept with these words: "Highquality compound production flexibility and short response times, all at a competitive price. FEDDEM supplies the same "Made in Germany" system technology worldwide, enabling its customers to manufacture consistently high product quality at all locations.

At Fakuma 2017 the company will also be exhibiting its FED 52 MTS extruder for manufacturing highquality carbon fibre reinforced plastic compounds. Like all machines in the MTS model series, the extruder is customisable and versatile, and is therefore suitable for a broad range of applications and a variety of compounding jobs.

For every compounding application, whether it be engineering plastic compounds, masterbatches or biocompounds, FEDDEM has just the right machine in its product range. FEDDEM´s standard MTS range offers sizes between 26 and 82 mm and a product-dependent throughput range between 40 kg/h and 4 t/h, extruders with a larger Do/Di and a screw diameter up to 135 mm are also available to manufacture highfilled plastic compounds.

FEDDEM´s customer focus philosophy is completed with rapid spare parts supply, used machine reconditioning and on-site customer consultations.
