LFT-D compounding line
Material-friendly production of thermoplastic structural components
The Dieffenbacher two-extruder technology enables more efficient and flexible LFT component production. Process parameters such as speed and temperature can thus be set independently to process plastics and additives for different production requirements. The use of resource-saving recycled polymers is also possible with the two-extruder technology. Structural components such as formwork elements, paneling, floor panels and other components for the construction industry, as well as applications in the logistics sector such as pallets and load carriers, can be produced more efficiently and with less impact on materials using the two-extruder technology. Possible applications in the automotive industry include underbodies, battery box covers, seat shells and many more.
Two Extruder Technology
The use of two extruders enables parameters such as speed and temperature to be set independently. In this way, plastics and additives are melted into a homogeneous mixture in the first extruder according to requirements. At the same time, in the second extruder, reinforcing fibers in the form of continuous rovings are fed, cut and wetted with the previously melted plastic mixture. This material-conserving division of the process steps is essential for the production of high-quality components with long fibers and continuously adjustable fiber contents.
