04.09.2023 New NX feeder for optimal bulk material flow

The enhanced version of its NX Series feeder will be one of the main products on display at the Kubota Brabender Technologie stand at Powtech 2023

The NX Series feeder being exhibited for the first time is in the medium feed capacity range that handles poor-flowing, sticky powders as well as fibers and pellets. The innovation is that it combines the mechanical design of one of Kubota Corporation’s gravimetric feeders with Brabender Technologie GmbH’s load cells and motors. The result is a feeder featuring a special negative angle wall hopper geometry and an diagonal agitator – aimed at preventing bridging to permit optimal bulk material flow into the screw, thus enabling mass flow to be optimised and a uniform screw fill level to be achieved.

This makes the feeder the first jointly developed product that showcases Kubota Brabender Technologie as "One Company". Other exhibits that the company will be showcasing 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 will also be exhibited.

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.
