An essential element in the SIKOPLAST recycling extruder, and a major factor in its success, is the design of the conical feed zone in combination with a single screw. This design (copied by many competitors), in a modified form, still makes up the basis for the present-day SIKOPLAST line.
Heinrich Koch retired from SIKOPLAST in 1985, by which time under his direction the corner-stone was laid for the company's world wide success.
In 1985 the management came under the direction of Mr. Fritz Bufe. As technical manager for several years, he had already been responsible for the growth and development of SIKOPLAST’s product line. Under Mr. Bufe’s management the scope of delivery has been further developed and continuously expanded. Besides conventional recycling lines for the processing of production waste, we now offer washing lines and systems for the processing of post consumer waste, silos, conveyor belts, granulators, and pelletizer systems.
A new part of our scope of delivery is the design, construction and fabrication (incl. commission) of steel platforms and superstructures. We also provide approved static load calculations upon request.
