Magnetic Separation for diverse applications within the Plastics industry. 

Bunting pioneered the industry standard FF Magnetic Separation Drawer for the plastics industry, and today we offer the greatest range of options for metal removal. No other company has the variety that Bunting does. Bunting’s magnetic separation equipment effectively removes ferrous metal contaminants from your product flow without interrupting your greater process. We offer extensive customization options, allowing us to easily meet your construction standards, facilitate easy installation, and satisfy your exact requirements. Many of the magnetic separation products we have designed for the plastics industry provide targeted solutions for industry-specific problems, such as our High-Temp FF350 Drawer, which tolerates the high temperatures associated with plastics applications such as drying hygroscopic resins.


Metal Detection

Bunting’s range of metal detectors for the plastics industry excel at sensing and removing ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel metals from your process flow. These highly sensitive metal detectors remove all sources of harmful metal contamination from your material while minimizing loss of good product. Some of the specialty metal detectors we offer for the plastics industry include: the quickTRON™ 03R for gravity-free fall applications; the pTRON™ for pneumatic conveying systems; the meTRON™ 07 CI for finished parts inspection; the SL, S,D, and C coils for shredder and grinder protection; and the MMS metal detector for molding machines.

Material Handling Conveyors

For material handling in plastics applications, Bunting offers innovative conveyors that enable you to run your operation more smoothly and safely at every point in the process. For example, our complete line of shredder/grinder feeder conveyors accommodates the many customers who are now regrinding scrap and purging in-house. Many of our conveyors are easily paired with our metal detectors, meaning you can consolidate steps in your manufacturing process while increasing your overall product quality. Bunting offers a complete line of shredder/grinder feeder conveyors with and without metal detectors and magnetic separation to protect your equipment and purify your product along with Eddy Current Separators to further purification of PET and ground plastic.

Magnetic Cylinders

Bunting is also well known for our magnetic printing cylinders. Our range of products includes magnetic die cutting cylinders, two-piece can print cylinders, plastic decorating cylinders, and corrugated carton printing cylinders. Our magnetic cylinders can be used to print on any kind of plastic container with ease. We have invested in state-of-the-art precision machinery to manufacture our magnetic cylinders to exceed OEM specifications.

Many industries fall within the category of plastics, including injection molding, plastics recycling, large-scale manufacturing, and many more. Bunting’s custom design capabilities ensure that no matter what industry you are working in, you will receive a custom designed piece of equipment that meets the exact needs of your specific application. We offer total solutions and have decades of experience in creating the highest quality equipment.
