(Munich, May 23, 2013) KraussMaffei Berstorff to present the KMD 90 XS/P twin-screw extruder at Feiplastic in Sao Paulo (May 20 to 24, 2013, Booth F 30) as proof of its system expertise for the increasing demands of the profile industry in South America.
Concept for economical production with higher filler proportions
“Our counter-rotating twin-screw extruder from the XS series is ideally suited to the Brazilian market where we are experiencing great demand for gutter profiles”, emphasized Bruno Sommer, Director of Extrusion Technology at the Brazilian subsidiary of the KraussMaffei Group. “Our machines provide producers with excellent process stability.Thin-walled profiles can also be manufactured very cost-effectively and economically. Thanks to a balanced price-performance ratio, the processor obtains a suitable profit margin”, said Sommer.
Excellent wear resistance also when processing recyclates 
The XS series, one of the world’s most successful series, impresses customers with its excellent wear resistance. The processing unit with the molybdenum-welded screws and a deep-nitrated barrel is ideally suited, above all, for processing regrind, recyclates and mixtures with higher chalk proportions. Wear resistance plays a special role in formulations which are used very often in gutter production in particular.
The twin-screw extruder can also be used to produce window profiles or ceiling profiles.
