(Hannover, November 30, 2017) On the occasion of TireExpo 2018 in Hannover from 20 to 22 February 2018, KraussMaffei Berstorff will showcase the new CompoundRework system 1000 (CRS 1000) in hall 21, booth 8030. This innovative solution is designed for processing scrap material generated during extrusion processes in the rubber processing industry. The CRS 1000 stands out for maximum ease of operation and is suitable for a wide range of different materials.

"Most extrusion processes inevitably involve the production of a certain amount of recyclable scrap, i.e. residual material that remains in the extruder or in the extrusion head in the event of compound or extrusion tool changes. In order to maximize added value, tire producers strive to recycle this scrap material by returning it to the production process," says Joachim Brodmann, Key Account Manager at KraussMaffei Berstorff. "The CRS 1000 processes large-volume rubber residues removed from the flow channels as well as start-up scrap converting the material into sheets or strips with a thickness of 8 mm. This means that 100% of the residual material can be returned to the production process.

Optimum recycling solution for large-volume scrap rubber

The CRS 1000 is equipped with two (optionally) heated rolls and a hydraulically adjusted roll gap. It can be fed with residual material of various sizes up to a width of one meter. The generously dimensioned feeding unit with automatic intake gap is equipped with all required safety features to minimize the risk of personal injury.

Compact plug-and-play solution

Easy access substantially facilitates maintenance and cleaning operations. The simplified control of the complete line enables one-man operation, which gives easy machine handling and enhanced operational safety. In addition, the sturdy design and energy-efficient drive technology ensure cost-effective and high-performance system operation on a sustained basis.

As the CRS 1000 comes with the complete electrical equipment and control system, it is ready for start-up immediately upon installation. With a total weight of about eight metric tons, a volume of just under 4 m3 and 5 m2 footprint, the complete unit can be easily transported to any place of installation using industrial trucks.

Live demonstration

On 20 February 2018 at 5.30 p.m., interested visitors to the fair will be given the opportunity to experience a live demonstration of the CompoundRework system 1000 on the KraussMaffei Berstorff premises. They will be able to witness first-hand how easy it is to recycle production scrap and convert it into strips and sheets.
