POLYPLASTIC invests over EUR3.3 mln into expansion of production

December 23/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Within the frame of a new investment project, R&P POLYPLASTIC a Russian plastics producer and KraussMaffei have recently concluded a contract for the delivery of two ZE 80 x 42D BluePower twin-screw extruders to extend the company's production capacity, said the company.

Due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, both parties conducted the entire contract negotiations online remotely and signed the contract at the end of October. This contract further strengthens the long-standing, constructive and solution-oriented cooperation between R&P POLYPLASTIC and KraussMaffei. High-tech lines will be installed at the companys production plant in Engels. Investments in only the equipment will amount to 3.3 million Euros.

"In the growing Russian market for engineering plastics, R&P POLYPLASTIC focuses primarily on equipment reliability and technical innovation, says Andrey Menschov, managing partner of R&P POLYPLASTIC. Faced with a continuously increasing demand, we have to ensure energy-efficient and resource-conserving production while meeting the ever more exacting quality standards requested by our customers. The use of the innovative ZE BluePower twin-screw extruder technology will enable us to maintain the supreme quality of our products in the highly competitive market environment."

Thanks to the installation of the new compounding extruders, the Russian plastics processor will be able to substantially reduce the energy consumption involved in its production. The ZE BluePower twin-screw extruder series is suitable for all compounding tasks in particular when equipment reliability, reproducibility and flexibility are key factors. The large free volume, the 1.65 OD/ID diameter ratio and the torque density of 16 Nm/cm are especially attractive for plant owners striving to increase productivity. In addition, the extruders are equipped with two side feeders and three degassing zones.

"R&P POLYPLASTIC will use the new twin-screw extruders for the production of engineering plastics designed for the building industry. With this new project, R&P POLYPLASTIC and KraussMaffei continue their long-standing and extremely successful cooperation, declares Siegfried Oldenburger, Expert Sales Extrusion Compounding at KraussMaffei.

New lines are scheduled for set-up and launch in fall 2021. This year will be a milestone for R&P POLYPLASTIC the leading Russian compounder will celebrate its 30th Birthday. 

As MRC informed earlier, November volume of production of polymer products in the Russian Federation against the same month a year earlier increased by 9.8%. Nevertheless, on an accrual basis for eleven months of the year, this index showed an increase of only 2.2%.
