Munchy, part of Boston Matthews Plastics Machinery Ltd., has launched three recycling machines in its K range, which is capable of turning scrap into top-grade plastic at the rate of 9-1,100 pounds an hour.
The new models are the K55, K150 and K300.
The K range includes both air- and water-cooling methods.
The K55 is designed for companies that need to reprocess material but do not have the volume to justify purchasing a large machine.
Munchy's operations now are fully integrated into the Worcester, England-based factory of Boston Matthews, which makes extruders.
The company has used computer-aided design to improve Munchy machines, including improvements to the palletizing system, better access for maintenance and overall control.
Programmable logic controllers now are standard on the Model K200 and larger machines.
Munchy's U.S. office is in Norwood, N.J.
