With its new FiberXpert feeder, Brabender Technologie is breaking new ground in the feeding of long and uneven fibers. The new Feeder is now capable of accuratly metering natural fibers, wood fibers, long carbon fibers and film chips.
As one of the main fields of application, the FiberXpert Feeder can be used for shredded film strips from plastic film production, where the film edges are cut off by edge trimmers. The new feeder allows to refeed the remnants back into the production process as film Chips so that they can be recycled.
Natural fibers are another field of application. The FiberXpert is capable of metering them reliably, accurately and continuously in filling material or wood-plastic composites production processes. Carbon fibers are just as difficult to recycle. In lamination process, for instance, materials and remnants are left over, the disposal of which is costly. The feeder is designed so that the remnants. as well as the recycled fibers, can continue to be used.
