The CCM process

The CCM process for producing compounds uses a 100% computer controlled pneumatic distribution system to transport the ingredients from their storage silos to the twin-screw extruders that operate continuously. This technology was designed to manage the complexity of the process resulting from the dozens of ingredients necessary to produce the compound. The computer controlled process improves the quality of the produced compound, and consequently the quality of the finished product.

By means of a specially designed capture and recycling system for solid materials, CCM technology has reduced dust levels in production areas to extremely low levels. The CCM process also saves energy, enabling a reduction of approximately 20% in energy consumption per unit of product.
