PET Processing Plant

Plastisavio - Italy

Plastisavio's business focuses on the production of PET laminates, made with 80% R-PET, for thermoformed food packaging. Plastisavio has recently invested in a Cimbria processing plant to recover high-quality PET post-consumer materials. The plant, entirely designed and supplied by Cimbria, optimizes the cleaning and sorting process of PET flakes.

Plastic recycling plant

Forever Plast S.p.A - Italy

This new recycling processing plant includes seven SEA optical sorting machines that efficiently select polymers and colors in the same processing line. Five SEA.IQ PLUS and two SEA.HY optical sorters ensure the best sorting of polyethylene from polypropylene and other polymers, and separate them into different color streams. This targeted sequence of optical sorters and its output is revolutionary in the plastic recycling sector. The plant plays an important role in the circular economy of plastic recycling in Italy.

Industrial Application Optical Sorters

Cimbria sorting machines find a perfect application in mineral working plants, allowing detection of the slightest difference in colour and shade on material sized from 0.2 to 25 mm.

On metals such as copper, brass, lead, steel, aluminium, etc., SEA optical sorters allow their classification by type of material on the basis of their colour.

Special versions are available in Stainless Steel AISI 316, or with a vertical feeding system.
