Our Press Side Granulators are available with a wide range of automation components such as special hoppers for combination robotic and manual feed; conveyor feed; oversize part, etc.; vacuum take-off bin for regrind evacuation and blower evacuation systems of various sizes, complete with unloading bins and cyclone separators.
Counter-slanted rotor and bed knives provide a high shear slicing action that achieves clean, uniform granulate, with very low plastic dust and fines at high throughput rates with less noise and fines, lower energy consumption and heat buildup. The rotor diameter of Press Side Granulators is greater than the feed opening, allowing clear, unobstructed access to the cutting chamber to utilize every inch of the cutting circle. This unique design maximizes granulator capacity and throughput by eliminating bottlenecks at the entrance, and increasing the effective screen area.
In the last 50 years, Hosokawa Polymer Systems has continually evolved and improved our systems and equipment to meet the demands of the recycling market. Hosokawa Polymer Systems supplies a wide range of recycling equipment from small Press Side granulators to large, multiple stage recycling plants for film, cable and post-consumer materials.
