After extensive construction work in its innovation center, the LEHVOSS Group has put another compounding plant into operation at its Hamburg location. The twin-screw extruder used was tailored to the requirements by the manufacturer KraussMaffei Extrusion GmbH.
For the development of innovative plastic compounds, recyclates, concentrates, additives and hotmelts, the high-temperature plant is equipped with various side extruders and dosing. A wide range of raw materials such as granulates, fibers, flakes, powder and liquids can be metered. Newly developed screws with a special design for an adapted and optimized melt preparation are also used. This makes it possible to produce, among other things, highly filled, for example highly conductive, plastics.
“We had a lot of fun developing and designing this system for the LEHVOSS Group. Especially because the latest developments and innovations from our company were in demand and the cooperation worked so well,” says Philipp Mallee, Project Manager, KraussMaffei Extrusion. "I'm proud to now have such a future-proof system with the latest technology in our technical center. This enables us to drive innovations even better and faster, and our customers receive samples and results in an even shorter time. The first customer projects and advance developments are already waiting to be implemented," says Dr. Linda Trosse, Head of Process Engineering Development, Lehmann&Voss&Co.
