Inoutic Deceuninck GmbH, a German subsidiary of the Belgian Deceuninck group, has upgraded its production facility by investing in a battenfeld-cincinnati coextrusion machinery.
The purchase is the company’s third investment in battenfeld-cincinnati coextrusion machines within a year, upgrading and extending existing mono extrusion lines to meet market demands.
Inoutic manufactures energy-efficient profile systems for windows, doors and roller blinds. Its product portfolio also includes terrace systems as well as facade and roof claddings made of Twinson wood-plastic composite and PVC.
The investment in coextrusion machines was prompted by the company’s policy for sustainable management of resources and increasing usage of recycled PVC in products.
“Coextruded profiles offer the ideal option to combine a modern, impeccable surface with a core made of regrind, thus creating a sustainable product,” said Inoutic in a 23 Nov statement.
German-Austrian machinery maker battenfeld-cincinnati has been supplying mono extrusion lines to the Bogen-based profile manufacturer.
In the past year, in order to include coextruded products to the portfolio, the machinery supplier has extended three of the existing extrusion lines by adding a 63mm coextruder from the conEX series.
The geometries of the screws inside the existing mono extrusion lines were also optimized for coextrusion by adjusting them to the required lower output rates.
