Maguire, Syncro partner to expand options for advanced extrusion control technologies


At K 2016, US-headquartered Maguire Products, and Italy-based Syncro srl divulge their partnership to provide customers of both companies with an extensive platform of options for materials and extrusion control. Maguire has taken an investment position with Syncro that will lead to a portfolio of technologies drawing on Maguire’s experience in materials handling and blending systems, and Syncro’s extensive range of control systems for extrusion applications.

To suggest the new possibilities, Maguire is displaying at its stand (Hall 10, Stand A26) an extrusion control interface, with examples of a 7- and 21-in HMI alongside a new range of Maguire blending systems, the WXB series, which combine batch functionality with loss in weight control. At its nearby stand (Hall 10, Stand A46), Syncro will display its full range of extrusion control-related equipment and systems.

“The strategic partnership and investment from Maguire in Syncro underlines both companies’ commitment to providing more choice for our customers to maximise extrusion efficiency,” said Frank Kavanagh, Maguire Vice President of sales and marketing. “Maguire’s experience in materials handling and blending systems combined with Syncro’s extensive range of control options for extrusion will enable customers to use existing equipment from Maguire, while easily expanding control elements on both existing and new lines going forward.”

Through its company CTS, Syncro also offers core expertise and a full product range for powder. “Powder applications are growing and diversifying from core compounding to other broader areas of extrusion markets that are served by both Maguire and Syncro,” said Gabriele Caccia, CEO of Syncro. “With this the new partnership we will also be able to offer many more options for customers focused on powder applications, from individual components to complete turnkey solutions.”

Maguire this year is celebrating the sale of the 50,000th Maguire gravimetric blender, which has a very wide range of applications in the world plastics industry, including a substantial base of customers with extrusion operations, including blown and cast film, sheet, pipe, profile, and compounding. Meanwhile, Syncro’s product lines cover a full range of downstream software and hardware to optimise line control. The company also manufactures gravimetric loss in weight feeders and blenders, air rings, IBC control, cages, and a wide range of gauging systems.
