Granulation / Recycling

  

Rapid 500 Series

Comes in three widths, 24", 36", and 48"!

  • Open-Hearted design
  • Single operator handling
  • Highest quality regrind
  • Extremely short pit stops    
  • "Visibly clean" inspection
  • No compromises            
           

The Rapid 500 Series large-size granulators are used for central or beside-the-press operation in all types of plastic applications. Typical waste includes large volume granulation of sprues and runners, large products like molded items, profiles, pipes and sheets.

The Rapid Open-Hearted concept provides within a few steps total access to the heart of the machine supporting rapid cleaning, maintenance and "Visibly clean inspection". Clear visual access to the core machine parts allows “visibly clean” inspection and approval of the machine before it resumes operation, preventing potential contamination at color and material changes.

Airveyor Systems

MAC Currently Offers Two Different Types of Air Conveyance Systems:

Both systems safely transport small plastic parts collected in a custom hopper under an IMM (Injection Molding Machine), through flexible or hard wall piping to the desired destination(s), where they are decelerated and presented to any Manual or Automatic Box, Bag or Tote Fill System.

  • The first is Positive Pressure Conveyor, which uses high pressure ambient air to effectively "blow" the parts and is recommended when compressed air is not consistently available.
  • The second is Vacuum Pressure Conveyor, which utilizes a line vacuum to create negative pressure used to "pull" the pats and requires compressed air.

These systems are designed specifically for the plastics industry and are typically used in cellular manufacturing applications with a total line run of 30 feet or less. Sizing of systems is directly related to part weight, shape, total distance of the run, etc. In order to provide a specific quote, MAC will require parts for testing, a schematic of the proposed run, detailing, horizontal sections and vertical rises, as well as required or desired radii for turns.

Automatic Parts Sorting

MAC Currently Offers Four Standardized types of Part/Runner Separation Systems:

  • Part Diverter - Front/Rear, free standing and under the press
  • Separating Handlers - Offered in both pin (finger) type and textured belt
  • Screw Separators - (most commonly used)
  • Roller Separator - Rollers are designed for independent gap adjustment

Front / Rear SorterMAC Front/Rear Sorter

Part diverters are used to change the direction of a shot of parts, the discharge of a complete cycle or cycles of parts from an injection molding machine. MAC Automation Concepts, Inc. currently offers two different styles of part diverters, also known as "part discriminators" in the injection molding industry.

SH Separating Handler with "Pin or Textured Belt"

Designed to work in tandem with MAC series conveyors. Units are designed to accept the overall width of the SF series, this design allows the frame to get tremendously close to the separator for tight tolerances. The following are the lengths and widths offered. Included is a T-type steel telescoping stand, standard AC fixed speed parallel shaft gear-motor. Unit has adjustable angle from 0- negative 45 degrees. Your choice of pin heights 1-1/8" tall and 2" tall. Belt material is White Polyurethane with stainless staple lace, holes are punched on 1" centers on a staggered pattern. Pins have a shoulder to hold place in the belt, but the pins easily removed to be repositioned for different patterns. A textured, white polyurethane belt with chevron pattern and an endless splice is available for applicable runners and parts.

Screw Type Separators

A screw type separator is used to separate small parts form sub-runners, ideally suited for small to medium number of cavities and runners. A gap separation method is used between the screw and the adjustable angle slide plate. The smaller (shorter of the two pieces) fall through the gap.

Roller Separator

Roller separators consist of slave rollers driven from the under-the-press conveyor. Slave rollers are chain driven and are designed for independent gap adjustment. Rollers are mounted in a formed steel frame, mounted on a "T-base" support stand, support stand has adjustment from 18-30″ top of roller. The gear-motor is a fixed speed direct drive unit, 110/60/1 with power cord, manual motor starter and grounded plug.

The DeDuster® - The Ultimate Cleaning Technology

Where Do Fines Come From and Why Is Cleaning So Important?

Some dust and contaminants occur naturally in products like minerals, food, tablets and other bulk solids, while others are caused by the way the products are handled. Impurities in plastic pellets, both fines (dust) and angel hair (streamers), are generated by the friction in conveying lines. Dilute phase systems create large amounts of dust and streamers; the higher the velocity, the larger the amount of impurities. Pipe elbows also cause friction and result in the creation of more dust and streamers. The high pressure in dense phase, or slow motion systems, creates very fine dust due to wall friction and friction between pellets. Temperature, pellet shape and product characteristics can also contribute to the creation of dust.

Cleaning bulk solids is important for several reasons. Food and pharmaceutical bulk solids are cleaned for hygienic reasons and to improve the quality of the finished, packaged product. Minerals are cleaned primarily to avoid environmental and health problems. The plastics industry cleans pellets to improve the quality of both the pellets and the finished plastic product.
