In plastics production, operations use a chemical process to create polymers. This plastic material is used in consumer plastics, epoxies, medical equipment, automotive components and more. Polymer production can also lead to other products, such as fiberglass, vacuum forming and injection molding.

Since engineered plastics have strength, chemical stability and heat resistance, many manufacturers use this material for a range of products.

Used High Intensity Mixers and More at LCEC

At LCEC, our selection of plastic machinery equipment covers a wide range of processes. Some of the popular machines we carry include:

  • Used batch compounder: In plastic production, compounding is the process of heating, melting and propelling plastic through a barrel while additives are applied to the material. These additives change the characteristics of the plastic to make it easier to work with. Batch compounders house this process.
  • Used high intensity mixer: High intensity mixers apply the required energy and heat needed for chemical reactions. This type of mixing is essential in many plastic processes.
  • Used extruder die: Extrusion dies are thick steel disks with specific openings. Hot plastic pushes through these extruder dies to create the desired profile. When operations have specific shaping requirements, extruder dies are a must.
