Mechanically recycling wind turbine blades using a planetary roller extruder
ENTEX and NOVO-TECH Circular – a unique connection. ENTEX would like to congratulate NOVO-TECH Circular on the ground-breaking for its new factory for compounding and extruding biocomposites. The investment being made in its Aschersleben facility marks a milestone in mechanical recycling and circular production to achieve lasting reductions in CO2 emissions. With its new project, NOVO-TECH Circular is maintaining its reliance on the principles embodied by the ENTEX planetary roller extruder, which will continue to be the heart of its new production line. Two ENTEX planetary roller extruders will be producing biocomposites at an industrial scale in a continuous, material-friendly process while maintaining consistently high quality throughout. This marks the start of a new era for the close, long-standing ties between our companies.
The „Leibniz Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e.V.“ relies on ENTEX laboratory roller extruders!
We are proud to open new perspectives in material development of high temperature plastics, reactive extrusion and basic research for one of the most renowned institutes for polymer research with our L-WE 30.
Outstanding doctoral thesis involving the simulation of a planetary roller extruder.
ENTEX would like to congratulate Mr. Johannes Rudloff at the SKZ – Das Kunststoff-Zentrum for the successful completion of his dissertation. Johannes Rudloff, who holds an engineering degree in plastics engineering, decided as part of his doctoral thesis to explore the predictability of key process variables such as pressure, temperature, and the degree of melting within the planetary roller extruder.
Exciting visit at ENTEX. Baratti Engineering GmbH gives a lecture on vacuum technology
Mr. Gerhard Baratti, Managing Director of Baratti Engineering GmbH, offered the ENTEX team exciting insights into the field of vacuum technology. In addition to the patented melt and freeze process, the different vacuum systems with pre-separation for different applications were intensively discussed. Another focus was on the selection of the right system in order to work out environmentally efficient and…
