Zimmer America Offers ARTEC High-Performance Extrusion Systems

Spartanburg-based textile machinery supplier Zimmer America Corp. is now the exclusive agent in North America for ARTEC (Advanced Recycling Technology) Machinery GmbH — an Austria-based developer and builder of high-performance extrusion systems for recycling polyolefin and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film and fiber.

ARTEC's plants are offered in various designs and performance classes and may be custom-designed for specific recycling tasks. Equipment is available in eight unit sizes for throughput rates ranging from 250 to 1600 kilograms per hour. Single-screw extruders are combined with harmonized peripherals such as cutting/condenser units and the patented CUFEX-System for supplying film flakes while reducing moisture content. The extruder also is combined with degassing and filtering devices for separating solid, fiber or gaseous contaminants from the polymer melt, which is processed to granules in the palletizing unit. ARTEC's newest systems separate low-molecular-weight and/or monomer fractions from the polymer melt.
