Royal DSM Selects MAAG Group for Expansion in Strand Pelletizing Business

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., January 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – MAAG Group, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), announced that it has been selected by Royal DSM to supply them with several automatic strand pelletizing lines (Jet Stream Granulation System – JSG) for the extensive modernization and expansion of their high-performance materials compounding plant in Evansville, IN.

The automatic JSG strand pelletizing systems from MAAG Group are designed to achieve the highest throughput rates in plastics compounding. MAAG Group’s JSG systems can be used across various pelletizing applications and are typically chosen by customers when a high level of automation and machine availability at the best possible pellet quality is required. The process handling is fully machine automated, and once the pelletizing process is set up, manual interaction is nearly eliminated. This makes the JSG systems particularly attractive for the pelletizing of highly filled compounding products, as well as high-quality recycling applications.

“For the last 20 years, MAAG Group’s JSG systems have provided customers with a great advantage over normal strand pelletizing systems. The JSG machine is often used to process high-priced polymers, given the high level of automation which immediately feeds strand breaks back into the pelletizer during production”, said Harald Zang, General Manager Sales, MAAG Group. “This avoids waste and increases the productivity of the machine, which helps generate increased turnover and profit for the customer.”

Depending on customer needs, MAAG Group can set up its JSG systems with different features and process parameters, including to react on certain material properties and throughput ranges. With 65 years of experience in plastic pelletizing, MAAG Group takes care of the complete process know-how starting from the melt pump and offers a wide field of applications and tailored solutions for customers.
