The Design of a Small-scale Granulate Producing Machine

Open access


The aim of this paper is to present a granulate manufacturing machine that will be used for recycling plastics in a laboratory at the Sapientia University. In order to produce granulates of recycled plastics the plastic part has to be ground and then extruded. The extruded polymer filament then can be converted to granulates. We present the working principle, design steps, structure and 3D model of a small scale granulate producing machine with a cost-effective approach
