Gamma Meccanica S.p.A.

GM Tandem line for the recycling of printed, wet and contaminated materials

GM180 Tandem
Gamma Meccanica S.p.A. has built a line able to recycle printed materials, materials with over 10% humidity and heavily contaminated materials: GM Tandem line. This system consists of feeding system AFT ECOTRONIC Compac and two extruders GM arranged in “tandem”. The efficiency of the system is guaranteed by an innovative (and patented) degassing system. The end of the line consists of TDA 4.0 pelletizer.
The degassing station installed on the GM Tandem line is highly efficient in the processing of materials with over 100% of print.
The TDA 4.0 pelletizer, thanks to its structural simplicity, significantly limits the interruptions of the production process, thus reducing the time necessary for the line maintenance and giving the possibility of other interventions in the extrusion area.

The plant is suitable for the regeneration of printed film with very high humidity. With a lateral dosing system it can also be used to regenerate heavy regrind.
The previous model, a GM 180 tandem line with forced feed, is operating at a French customer to recycle bottles with over 100% of print, the plant has a production capacity up to 1500 kg/h.
