Orenda Automation Technologies Inc. will unveil a new pulverizer with new cooling technology at the Rotoplas conference for rotational molders, Oct. 6-9 in Rosemont, Ill.
Markham, Ontario-based Orenda officials said the main principles used in pulverizerizing — used to grind resin pellets into powder suitable for rotomolding — have not changed much in decades. The patented Orenda technology boosts the efficiency of the pulverizer by 100 percent, they claim.
Pulverizing resin generates heat, which can melt the material. According to Orenda, the new technology will revolutionize cooling of the plastic, allowing a wider range of materials to be pulverized. The new method will make it possible to grind, at ambient temperature, materials with complex thermal properties, such as low melting points.
Mario Sisca, international sales manager, said the company is not releasing many details ahead of Rotoplas. Orenda will give a presentation Oct. 8 at 2:15 p.m. in a products showcase area on the trade show floor, he said.
Sisca said Orenda has 25 years of experience in pulverizing machinery.
Orenda's booth number will be 617 at Rotoplas, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.
