CRG Logics Inc., a year-old manufacturer of resin conveying systems and gravimetric blending equipment, grew out of a sister company's experience with refurbishing machines.
CRG Logics was spun off from its sister company, the 6-year-old CRG Systems Inc. “We saw the need for auxiliaries to be improved,” said President Carl Gillig.
Gillig said CRG Systems no longer rebuilds machines. The company focuses on its business as a manufacturers' representative for Davis-Standard, Erema, Thermal Care, Kundig, Rieter and Polymer Systems equipment, as well as CRG Logics.
CRG Logics employs seven at its factory in Greenville, Wis. Company headquarters is in Des Plaines, Ill.
Gillig said CRG Logics did about $600,000 in sales in its first full year of operations.
Gillig's background includes 15 years of experience in machinery and controls for extrusion. He was the Chicago regional representative for Davis-Standard Corp., Eurotherm Controls Inc. and Process Control Corp.
CRG Logistics recently introduced two products:
* The Simplicity line of continuous gravimetric blending systems can run two to eight components at a rate of up to 4,000 pounds per hour, using vibratory feeding technology. Because Simplicity has no augers, gearboxes, slide gates and mechanical mixers, the unit requires minimal maintenance, according to the company.
* The VR/PD line of resin conveyors. The VR line of vacuum receivers comes in 0.25 to three cubic feet. Standard features include an integral sequence valve. Instead of magnetic switches, the unit uses proximity sensors, eliminating the need for continuous adjustment.
PD vacuum power units come in five to 40 horsepower.
Features include positive displacement blowers, an integral starter/disconnect, vacuum relief valve and gauge.
Another product, the AHS series angel hair trap takes stringers out of material conveying lines. The price is $895.
