DSM adds Maag pelletizing lines for compounding-plant expansion in Indiana

By Mary Page Bailey |

 MAAG Group, part of Dover, announced that it has been selected by Royal DSM N.V. (Herleen, the Netherlands) to supply them with several automatic strand pelletizing lines (Jet Stream Granulation System – JSG) for the extensive modernization and expansion of their high-performance materials compounding plant in Evansville, Indiana.

The automatic JSG strand pelletizing systems from MAAG Group are designed to achieve high throughput rates in plastics compounding. MAAG Group’s JSG systems can be used across various pelletizing applications and are typically chosen by customers when a high level of automation and machine availability with high pellet quality is required. The process handling is fully machine automated, and once the pelletizing process is set up, manual interaction is nearly eliminated. This makes the JSG systems particularly attractive for the pelletizing of highly filled compounding products, as well as high-quality recycling applications.

“For the last 20 years, MAAG Group’s JSG systems have provided customers with a great advantage over normal strand pelletizing systems. The JSG machine is often used to process high-priced polymers, given the high level of automation which immediately feeds strand breaks back into the pelletizer during production,” said Harald Zang, General Manager Sales, MAAG Group. “This avoids waste and increases the productivity of the machine, which helps generate increased turnover and profit for the customer.”
