Trim and scrap generated during the extrusion as well as during the converting, coating and laminating of film, can be recycled without manual handling. The waste can even be separated depending on type. After being captured in the process machine it is cut to confetti sized pieces and diverted. In the end, the waste is conveyed to a specific collection unit where it is recycled. Everything is handled inline and is PLC controlled to avoid human interaction. This will definitely increase efficiency and recycling possibilities.
