Gamma Meccanica delivers to Turkey and Japan


Italian manufacturer of plastics recycling lines Gamma Meccanica has sold lines in the Turkish and Japanese markets.

In Turkey Gamma Meccanica completed a contract with a major customer. The line is a GM125 Compac for recycling of production waste: PP, PE. The compact line comprises a Compac feed with cutter-compactor, single-screw extruder with degassing, screenchanger and pelletiser.

The Compac cutter compactor is equipped with the Ecotronic system for the electronic power control, which is said to provide significant energy savings. Water is no longer used to control temperature. It also affords the possibility of recycling materials with high moisture content. An important feature is the presence of the feeding screw that allows for a steady controlled flow of material into the extruder. The extruder has a degassing station with two ports to facilitate the escape of gases produced during the melting of the material. New extruder screw designs have been incorporated to increase the production outputs of the machines while the barrel is heated by the optimum heaters for this type of application.

The exterior casing has improved insulation with ceramic fibre to prevent heat loss and ensure increased energy efficiency.

The Compac’s feeding screw was fundamental in the customer’s choice, says Gamma Meccanica. “Comparing the laboratory tests on the quality of the granules produced and the hourly production of major Italian and qualified foreign manufacturers of recycling plants, the Gamma Meccanica line ensured the best quality recycled granules and especially a higher hourly production. The line produces about 10% more than the competitors' lines of the same size and in a more constant way,” says the firm.


In Japan, a GM90 Compac line for stretch film and packaging film recycling has been delivered to one of the largest stretch film recycler. The screw and barrel of the extruder are designed to process different types of plastic material: LDPE, LLDPE, PP.

“Also in this case, the comparison of the Gamma Meccanica line with competitors has shown a more constant hourly production, it works in a more automated mode and has a very low energy consumption,” said the firm.

At K2016 Gamma Meccanica will exhibit a GM 65 Compac line, in Hall 9, stand C41.
