Polymer Production

Polymer Processing - MAAG Group

The production of polymers is a complex process. Gentle handling of the melt in the production process is essential to the high quality of the end product. The optimum combination of gear pumps, filter systems, pelletizing systems and dryers is key.

Masterbatch

Masterbatch - MAAG Group

Concentrated and precisely dosed, masterbatches contribute to the coloring and functionality of the finished polymer products. With integrated processes and systems for conveying, tempering, filtering, pelletizing or grinding and drying, MAAG Group machines achieve uncompromising results – for spherical pellets, cylindrical pellets, micropellets, or powder.

Compounding

Compounding - MAAG Group

Spherical pellets, cylindrical pellets, micropellets or powder – these are the production output at the end of polymer processing. No matter whether high filler content, low melt stability, sticky material, or high MFI content – with the right pelletizing system top results are achieved from every product.

Recycling

Recycling - MAAG Group

The recycling of plastics varies widely: Recyclable waste can be processed in the MAAG Group’s pelletizing plants. High-performance filtration systems play a decisive role in this. Direct recycling to create the final product, with no intermediate pelletizing stage, is also possible. If powder is the end product, there are also suitable pulverizers in the portfolio.

Extrusion

Extrusion - MAAG Group

What produces top extrusion results in terms of processing quality and appearance? Gear pumps that precisely convey the product flow and efficiently apply the die pressure to relieve the pressure buildup on the extruder and gently convey the processed product. And filters that reliably remove dirt from the molten plastic.

Rotomolding

Rotomolding - MAAG Group

Powder of the highest quality, with good flowability and the required particle distribution at high bulk density – these are the requirements placed on the powder in rotomolding. The MAAG Group’s pulverizers, as laboratory machines or production plants, supply powder material with outstanding product surface quality for rotomolding.

Industry

Industrie - MAAG Group

All types of pumps are used in the polymer, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. The pumped media have different requirements in terms of viscosity, pressure, temperature or corrosiveness. With a sophisticated modular system, the MAAG Group can manufacture pumps that are ideally suited to a specific production process.

Pharma & Food

Pharma & Food - MAAG Group

Micropellets are becoming increasingly important in the pharmaceutical and food industries, and for food supplements. Micropellets are not powder, and not pellets, but particles of uniform size and shape to which active substances can be bound. The MAAG Group’s micropelletizer technology enables optimum direct and downstream processing.

Services

The high-quality machines of the MAAG Group are also subject to wear and tear on components subject to heavy loads. Our warehouses worldwide stock key spare parts, including for older machines, in sufficient quantities to be able to deliver in the shortest possible time. High-quality original spare parts assure the long service life and productivity of your pumps, filters, pelletizers and pulverizers.

With eight grinding centers around the world, the MAAG Group provides the largest service network in the polymer industry. Die plates can be cleaned and overhauled, and cutting rotors reground, within a very short time. Regular and careful regrinding permanently improves the pellet quality, as well as extending the service life of the cutting rotor.

Over a long machine lifetime, some components will need to be repaired, upgraded or replaced. Repair and maintenance is carried out by trained specialists, using original spare parts, in order to maintain the high machine quality over the long term and safeguard the capital investment in the machine.

For machines to work optimally over the long term, they must be serviced regularly. The MAAG Group offers service contracts that are adapted to the individual requirements of companies and their production processes. Additional periodic inspections provide even more planning assurance for scheduled maintenance procedures.

At the MAAG Group’s test and development centers, individual plastics can be tested, innovative ideas can be tried out under realistic conditions, a pilot production run can be commissioned, or solutions for special requirements can be devised. This means the MAAG Group is always close at hand to serve you as an innovation partner in your polymer production.

Trained employees are motivated employees. At the same time, trained personnel enhance machine availability. We teach this specialist know-how at MAAG Group test and development center locations or directly on-site. The seminars on polymer production plant operation provide instruction in theory and practice.
