A large number of international process, bulk materials and conveying technology experts convened at POWTECH in Nuremberg (Germany). Kubota Brabender Technologie GmbH was again there this year and showcased many of its proven products – and unveil a new one: the enhanced NX Series feeder.
Premiere: NX feeder
An NX Series feeder in the medium feed capacity range that handles poor-flowing, sticky powders as well as fibers and pellets showcased for the first time. What makes it special is that it combines the proven mechanical design of one of Kubota Corporation’s most innovative gravimetric feeders with Brabender Technologie GmbH’s proven load cells and motors. The result is a feeder featuring a special negative angle wall hopper geometry and an diagonal agitator that prevents bridging and ensures optimal bulk material flow into the screw. In combination with other innovative components, mass flow is optimized and a uniform screw fill level is achieved.
This makes the feeder the first jointly developed product that showcases Kubota Brabender Technologie as “One Company”. Other exhibits that the company showcased include Generation 2.0 twin and single screw feeders, demonstrating the modular design and easy accessibility of the equipment, and the Flexwall 40, which provides live insights into its operation through its transparent hopper. The MiniTwin feeder including ionizer and the FDDW liquid feeder were also exhibited.
First joint product development milestone
Kubota Brabender Technologie is one of the world’s largest providers of gravimetric and volumetric feeding systems and discharge devices. The company’s products are used in various sectors and industries for both batch and continuous production. Almost exactly one year after integration, the company has reached the first joint product development milestone with the new NX feeder – the first German-Japanese product under the new Kubota Brabender Technologie brand that complements and rounds out the company’s portfolio. “Our ambition is to harness the synergies of both companies and to jointly develop successful, high-quality products for the global market,” Bruno Dautzenberg, Managing Director of Kubota Brabender Technologie, explains.
