Schönberg– At the K 2016 plastics trade fair (hall 10, stand E60) Sesotec GmbH as highlights presents the RAPID PRO-SENSE metal separator and the RAYCON D x-ray inspection system – both fit for “Industrie 4.0” – to trade visitors. The Sorting Recycling business unit for the first time presents the modular FLAKE PURIFIER+ system for the sorting of plastic flakes.

“Industrie 4.0” a major topic in the plastics industry
The German VDMA association of the plastics and rubber machinery industry and its member companies, which also include Sesotec GmbH from Schönberg, at the K 2016 trade fair want to demonstrate “Industrie 4.0” by way of concrete practical examples. They want to show to the trade which “Industrie 4.0” technologies are already successfully used to improve production efficiency in plastics and rubber machinery production, and what their advantages are for users.

Contaminant detectors networked in production facilities
Sesotec GmbH at the K trade fair presents the fit for “Industrie 4.0” RAPID PRO-SENSE high-performance metal separator. RAPID PRO-SENSE reliably detects and separates magnetic and non-magnetic metal particles even if they are enclosed in granulate and thus ensures the quality of plastic granulate and protects plastics-processing machines against damage and clogging. In terms of a „Smart Factory“ the system can be integrated in networked production facilities.

For the quality inspection of finished plastic products Sesotec GmbH furthermore presents the newly developed RAYCON D x-ray inspection system. This system x-rays injection moulded parts and inspects them for contaminations, incorrect shape, air inclusions, or missing components. The RAYCON D system also can be integrated in networked production facilities.

New generation of multi-sensor sorting system
At Sesotec’s trade fair stand the new FLAKE PURIFIER+ sorting system is presented for the first time. Based on a modular concept this system allows the combination of all available sensors for contaminant detection: Sensors for metal separation, sensors for colour separation / sorting, and sensors for the separation and sorting by plastic types.

The „+“ in the FLAKE PURIFIER+ system stands for optimised material infeeding for a more evenly distributed material flow and increased material throughput. The system also allows easier maintenance and integration. The „+“ furthermore stands for the dust-proof system design and for the integrated connections for dust and label extraction which all provide increased efficiency in the recycling process.
