Pelletizing systems AUTOMATIK

At almost every branch of modern industry polymeric materials are used. They undergo wearing while exploating, so maintenance is conducted. A significant load of knowledge is involved to recognize the type of polymeric material, due to select adequate solvent, glue or lacquer for processing stage. In the case of total destruction, materials are disposed of, which involves a huge amount of wastes – from disposable packagings, to everyday life objects and machinery or constructional parts.

A special solution for transformation of polymeric materials has been developed, as they don’t decay rapidly. Also a landfill site are of limited capacity. The solution is pelletizing system.

A granulate of artificial materials is widely applied in many processing plants, where single screw extruder plasticizing systems are involved (equal rods of polymeric materials are obtained).

As far as pelletizing system is concerned, rheological and thermal properties, efficiency of electricity consumption, process reliability, further performance of granulate and durability of device must be considered.


Underwater pelletizing systems for highly profi table throughput rates of up to 36,000 kg per hour

The SPHERO® underwater pelletizing system has been particularly designed to process thermoplastics and produces spherical pellets. This most flexible system is applied in the production of raw materials, compounds, masterbatches, engineering plastics, wood polymer composites, thermoplastics elasto-mers, hot-melt adhesives, and in the field of recycling.

The DROPPO® drop pelletizing system made by Automatik Plastics Machinery has been particularly designed for the production of perfectly uniform, dust-free pellets. The cool-ing and solidifi cation process may use air, nitrogen, or water – thus offering utmost flexibility to the customer.

DROPPO® - Your benefits:

  • Ideally suited for low-viscosity melts and liquids
  • Perfectly spherical, dust-free pellets ensure superb conveyance and high bulk-density storage as well as precise dosing during subse-quent processing
  • Drop process unit may be integrated into already existing lines such as spray towers, etc.
  • High profi tability due to reduced energy consumption and low manpower requirements
  • Quick and simple product changeover
  • No mechanical wear


Efficient pellet drying is the guarantor for high quality. As different pellets have different properties, process-optimized drying technology is mandatory. Automatik Plastics Machinery is the only supplier to meet this varienty of requirements with its range of dryers consisting of the AERO® impact dryer, the CENTRO® centrifugal dryer, and the DURO® belt dryer. The dryers are applied in combination with the upstream SPHERO® underwater pelletizing system or with the upstream M-USG®/P-USG® underwater strand pelletizing system to meet the particular requirements for production.

Your benefits:

  • High drying quality both for virgin polymers, compounds, and products with any fillers or reinforcements and elastomer plastics.
  • Drying of spherical and cylindrical pellets and micro-granular compounds
  • Wide range of operating capacities, from small quantities up to 40,000 kg/h
  • Smooth handling of the pellets
  • Energy-efficient
