The processing of roll products that utilize a reusable core. Film material is cut off the reusable core to reduce the amount of labor to rewind on an expendable core. The process provides a cost savings for the customer and allows JIT processing on sensitive products.
The separation of ferrous metal from virgin resin, regrind or granular material. This is done by using rotary drum separators and vibratory conveyors.
Specialized air handing and screen equipment are used to produce a dust or contaminant free product. Mostly used to remove dust fines in plastic regrind. The process can also remove contaminants like paper labels and light dirt.
A high compression horizontal baler will produce heavy bales from loose films, plastic parts and paper. The consolidation of these products reduces the volume and packaging that the materials are collected in. The bales can then be easily loaded into trucks or containers for full load quantities.
Granulating plastic scrap and components is our primary focus and core business. In 2014 Tycom Recycling Inc. relocated all processing and warehouse operations to a new facility in the Rochester Technology Park. The new facility is state of the art for granulation capability.
Shredding is the course grinding of plastic parts, shapes and purgings. Primarily used for a pre-grind to granulation. This equipment is capable of size reducing large plastic purgings and difficult to granulate plastics such as Cast Nylon and UHMWHDPE. The process can also provide options for security destruction of products and documentation.
Hydraulic cutting equipment is used to reduce roll products or large plastic purgings. Size reduction is the primary goal, but also to remove paper cores.
