ProTec Polymer Processing GmbH says that it plans to present two new products at K 2019, taking place in Dusseldorf, Germany, from 16–24 October 2019.

This includes the company’s SOMOS RDF modular resin drying system which is designed for stationary use without a central dry air generator. The system consists of autonomously operating units which can be combined into a variable overall system with central visualization and control.

Another premiere at K 2019 is a high-speed retrofit for ProTec's long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) pultrusion lines. This retrofit can help boost the production speed of existing manufacturing lines for long fiber reinforced thermoplastic pellets from 30 m/min to 50 m/min, the company said.
