The PRIMO FC is a concept strand pelletizer of the MAAG Group. Interviews with customers have always led to three points: easy to clean, easy and quick to maintain, less loud – we have responded to these requests. The new strand pelletizer features a number of innovative features, namely the adjustment and readability of the cutting gap size from the outside, a cutting head housing swiveling in 3 axes and a smart condition monitoring of the machine.
Years of experience with the PRIMOPlus cutting geometry is maintained and guarantees interchangeability of the central components of the cutting unit. A change of the core components is greatly simplified. The replacement of the cutting rotor takes just as long as an exchange of the complete feed unit, not more than 30 minutes. By means of axial disassembly through the cutting head side wall, the core components can be lifted vertically out of the machine.
The bottom of the cutting head and the granule outlet are easily accessible by a lateral pivoting of the complete pelletizer housing. The granule outlet is simply inserted without additional fixations – an exchange is done without tools in 2 minutes. Furthermore, the cutting chamber flap can be opened in the strand axis which also includes the strand inlet. This means that in case of blockage of the infeed unit by strands, the complete cutting head can still be opened and the material jam can be removed quickly.
The cutting rotor is powered by a strong direct drive which can handle a wide range of products such as micro-pellets or LGF granules without an additional gearbox.
The PRIMO FC concept shows that we have the opportunity and the drive to work together and break new ground, because today’s innovations are the standard of tomorrow.
