Separation Attachments

Separation attachments are used for spatial separation of pieces with different sizes. They are especially useful in the plastics industry or in the die-casting sector for separating moulded pieces and sprues.

They are thus integrated directly into the process; i.e., the separation takes place "shot for shot". Usually a machine exit belt carries the manufactured pieces directly into the feed area of the separation attachment. So, for example, after the separation sprues can be ground directly at the production machine and returned to the production process.

Depending on the task, different configurations are available to achieve an optimal separation result.

We are glad to carry out trial separations with your parts for you in our pilot plant or provide you with loaner equipment for in-house trials at your facility.

With the use of the screw separator "MSL / MSR," the larger parts of the items to be separated are moved to the side with the help of the screw. Smaller pieces slide out between the height-adjustable outlet slide and the screw roller.

  • Right- and left-exit separation systems with differing screw surfaces, lengths and heights available
  • Height of the separation gap comfortably and quickly adjustable with knurled screws
  • Has its own drum motor drive and is thus independent of the feed speed of the conveyor belt
  • Speed adjustable in seven steps from 15 to 95 rpm
  • Overload protection prevents piece jams and injuries to operating personnel
  • Energy-saving drive with highly efficient planetary gear
  • Can be mounted separately on existing conveyor belts (including belts from other manufacturers)
  • Scraper above the screw prevents accidental skipping of pieces
  • Spikes in the body of the screw ease the pieces apart and thus optimise the separation process
  • Versatile tilt and angle adjustments possible without tools
  • Quick conversion for different piece combinations

With the use of the separating roller separation attachment Type TA, pieces that are larger in surface area - mostly sprues - are carried to an output slide. The smaller pieces - mostly moulded parts - fall between the individual rollers.

  • Separation gaps adjustable without tools in seconds
  • Available in standard widths of 400, 600 and 800 mm
  • Depending on the task, available with one, two, or three rollers with differing surfaces (smooth, studded, highly structured, spiked, etc.)
  • Speed adjustable in seven steps between 15 and 95 rpm
  • Overload protection prevents piece jams and injuries to operating personnel
  • Energy-saving drive with highly efficient planetary gear
  • Can be mounted separately on existing conveyor belts (including belts from other manufacturers)

The Separating Disk Attachment works like the roller attachment. It is used when parts are difficult to be separated. The bigger parts are conveyed to the output slide, the smaller parts fall down between the disks.
-Various widths available for attachment to conveyors with a width from 200 to 500mm
-Free layout of the disc segments on the separating rollers (Quantity and distance is individually adjustable)
-1, 2 or 3 separation rollers with individual placement
-Speed is variable in 7 steps from 15 to 95 rpm
-Overload protection prevents parts damages and injuries
-Energy-saving drive with highly efficient planetary gear
-Can be mounted separately on existing conveyor belts (including belts from other manufacturers)
