Luxus invests in its new technical centre

By PRW Staff
Posted 5 December 2012

Plastics recycler Luxus has taken delivery of a twin-screw compounding line. The investment will form part of the company’s new £600,000 technical centre, which will open next February at its Lincolnshire manufacturing site.

The new research and development line comprises a twin screw extruder from the Coperion STS Series, a Brabender loss-in-weight feeding system and a Reiter Strand pelletiser.

Terry Burton, technical manager at Luxus, said: “We chose the compounding system from Coperion as we were impressed with the overall quality of the machine, its flexibility and the support that’s offered.

“In our new technical centre the twin screw compounder will create polymer formulations for the test development stages of various materials such as PC, PC/ABS, ABS, PA in addition to standard PP and PE. The line will also be used to achieve process and product optimisation when compounding our existing products too.”
