UPPACT closes 2023 with a series of excellent trials

In November and December, UPPACT improved the test installation with a new extruder and a more flexible connection system for the molds. On December 22, we tested this new installation in its entirety for the first time. The mixer/melter did what a mixer/melter was supposed to do ('mix and melt') and the melt was drawn into the extruder without any problems and came out in a nice flow.


The molds could also be easily connected to the extruder and filled nicely. Through an opening in the back of the mold it could be determined that the mold was full - a stream of melt then came out - after which the mold could be disconnected and placed in the cooling bath.


With 5 molds ready for production, we were also able to make exactly 5 planks and posts, which all came out very nicely. This was celebrated afterwards with a Christmas lunch of fries and hamburger sandwiches from Ekamper, to which the Bek & Verburg employees were also invited.
