UK ancillaries distributor TH Plastics has agreed a contract to deliver a Moretto material handling system for packaging group Kobusch.
The group was selected to provide the system for one of Kobusch’s sites in the UK.
Specialising in co-extrusion and thermoforming for rigid packaging for the food industry, Kobusch required a system with a blender that could handle up to two tonnes of regrind flake per hour. TH Plastics worked with Moretto to develop a system which included the DGM1000, a flake loader designed to work with difficult to flow regrind flake, a Eureka Drying System for the virgin PET and a supervisory system to monitor all the equipment.
Crawford Fleming, Project Manager at Kobusch said: “The systems work seamlessly together and we’ve been able to achieve optimum levels of over three tons of flake material per hour, which we’re extremely pleased with.”
