Satake Exhibits at 5th Plastic Japan

Displaying and Demonstrating Machines for Plastic Pellets

Belt-type optical sorting machine"Pellet Sorter DS"

Satake will exhibit at "5th Plastic Japan" inside "Highly-functional Material World 2016" held from April 6th to 8th at the Tokyo International Exhibition Center (Tokyo Big Sight), hosted by Reed Exhibitions Japan Ltd.

"Highly-functional Material World 2016" is an exhibition held in Japan for material industry like film, plastic, combined materials and metal. Satake will be exhibiting products from its industrial machinery sector, including optical sorting machines and equipment related to the industrial processing of plastics and plastic pellets.

This time, a new optical sorting machine - the "Pellet Sorter DS" as well as the new "PIKASEN α (alpha) PLUS" will be available for demonstration. The "Pellet Sorter DS" is suited to checking the plastic pellet raw materials from two sides, and gives highly accurate sorting. The "PIKASEN α PLUS" is also equipped a shape sorting function, which has the ability to remove non-defective product of the same color by means of its shape. This is a versatile optical sorting machine for a wide range of materials.

Also, in addition to the actual exhibition of plastic pellet washing machine and plastic pellet surface treatment machine, Satake will also display poster presentations such as optical sorting machine "BELTUZA" and the recycled resin manufacturing system.

Satake's booth is in East-5 Hall (Booth E12-6). The booth is open from 10:00 to 18:00 (10:00 to 17:00 on final day). (For an overview of the exhibition machines, please refer to the attachment.)
