ROWA Masterbatch significantly increases its capacity

(PresseBox) (Pinneberg, ) Pinneberg/Germany, September 10th, 2015 – ROWA Masterbatch has always been a reliable and competent partner for its customers. This strategy has been paying off with increased demand for ROWA Masterbatch products; thus, the ROWA GROUP has decided on a capacity Technical Centre expansion. A new production facility – will include all “the bells and whistles” and with new equipment manufactured by Coperion – will be inaugurated at the end of 2015.

The new system is designed as a flexible manufacturing concept that will include an upstream container mixing system, several gravimetric dosing units, as well as an underwater and strand pelletiser. Side feeders are planned for gentle incorporation of shear-sensitive pigments and functional additives. This will allow ROWA Masterbatch to continue offering its customers a wide range of polymer-specific masterbatches.

In addition, the Technical Centre will also receive an ultramodern cast film line. The nozzle width of 250 millimetres and co-extrusion capability makes it ideally suited for manufacturing multilayer packaging films. This equipment will also drive forward further development projects in cooperation with customers.

Last year, ROWA Masterbatch already met demands for more stringent requirements and invested not only in the Production Department but also in the Technical Centre. For example, the system controllers were modernised with Siemens S7 units. The gravimetric liquid dosing units, which can be used with various production systems,allow more flexible processing of complex recipes. The injection-moulding machines of the Technical Centre were equipped with interchangeable cassettes that are suitable for processing challenging plastics with tool temperatures of up to 140 °C.
