Removing metal from recycled plastics is the focus of the Bunting stand at the Plastics Recycling World Expo.
Bunting is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of magnetic separators and metal detectors for the recycling and plastics industries. The Bunting European manufacturing facilities for their wide range of metal separation and detection equipment are in Redditch, United Kingdom.
Metal contamination is an issue for any company producing plastics products or managing plastic waste. In virgin plastic manufacturing processes, metal damages processing equipment and the quality of the end-product. Recycled plastic commonly has both ferrous and non-ferrous metal contamination, and removal is vital to enable the reuse of the waste material.
Bunting will have application experts from the UK, Italy, and Germany at the stand to help with product application questions. The Bunting product portfolio includes a wide range of magnetic separators and metal detectors to detect and remove any metal.
