Tape compactor - compSTAR

This integrated material handling solution facilitates the tape production process by removing and compacting broken tapes and tape scrap. The endless tapes are sucked into the container, cut and pushed towards the heated channel where they melt and are compressed into blocks. Compared to endless tapes, the blocks are a lot easier to handle and reduce production and recycling costs.
The blocks are optionally recycled with our recoSTAR universal line. This equipment can handle hard-to-grind material by the ACTIVE shredder / extruder combination.
