The machinery builder FEDDEM GmbH & Co. KG is displaying developments in its extrusion and compounding equipment at this year's FAKUMA in Hall A6, Booth 6217.

At its booth, FEDDEM presents the latest version of its proven FED 43 MTS extruder and accessories (see Fig. 1). The exhibit boasts the following features:
Additionally, conventional FSB side feeding and FSV side vacuum degassing units can be attached to the processing section as required.
In the maintenance sector, the popular double-brush cleaning unit, Type FRE, which is designed for cleaning figure-8-shaped barrel bores, is now available with a modular shaft, allowing for on-site adjustment of the device's length (see Fig. 2).
"In the pursuit of sustainability in compound production, a seamlessly continuous production is quickly recognized as one of the most critical prerequisites for efficient production," says Lars Mansfeld, Team Leader for Assembly & Service at FEDDEM. "To minimise unplanned production stoppages, FEDDEM now offers tiered service packages, ranging from simple wear condition measurements of barrels and screws to tailored maintenance plans specific to the individual line configuration."

The Sinzig-based company also offers LFT pultrusion lines for producing LFT-G pellets (Long Fiber Thermoplastic-Granules). According to their own claims, FEDDEM's equipment excels in terms of performance, quality, and ease of use in conventional short-fibre compounding processes. For instance, alongside unparalleled narrow tolerances of fibre content in the pellets, the repeatability of achievable material properties of the LFT compound is achieved when using various production line sizes at strand speeds of up to 60 m/min.

The use of a patented modular impregnation tool plays a crucial role in this context. "Our extruder for melt preparation is positioned parallel to the roving line, allowing significant space savings in the plant layout (see Fig. 3). FEDDEM pultrusion lines require only slightly more floor space than a conventional compounding line of similar throughput. All maintenance access points for individual line components are designed to provide direct and fast access, ensuring maximum line availability in case access is required," explains David Constroffer, Head of Project Management.
