Since 1959, Bunting has designed and manufactured top-of-the-line magnetic separators, metal detectors, and material handling equipment for the plastics industry. We work with customers to determine their exact needs and develop custom-designed products that will perfectly suit the challenges of the unique application they are working with and the specific materials they are handling, as well as being designed to fit within the existing layout of the customer’s facility. Removing all metal contaminants from your plastics products ensures you provide your customers with the highest quality, highest purity goods. Bunting’s cutting-edge products provide comprehensive metal removal solutions you can trust.
At Bunting, our greatest strength is our ability to approach complex applications and develop customized solutions to serve our customers. Our equipment is robust and high quality, and we pride ourselves on the fact that we provide long lasting, permanent solutions. We are supported by territory managers located across North America that are able to go out to a customer’s site and personally assess their application in order to provide them with the best possible equipment recommendations. From there, we can engage our engineering team to create a custom designed product, as well as offer the services of our new Customer Experience Center, which allows potential customers to test their product with our equipment in real time and see real results.
Since its founding, Bunting has been a family-owned, family-operated company. Headquartered in Newton, KS, Bunting currently has multiple branches within the United States as well as abroad in the United Kingdom. As technology continues to advance across every industry, Bunting remains committed to integrating new technology into our products, creating solutions that address modern industry challenges, and continuing to expand our domestic and international reach.
In plastics applications, it is essential to remove contaminant metal particles from the material being processed. Contaminant particles can seriously damage existing equipment in the facility, resulting in downtime and costly repairs. Bunting has sought to address this industry problem by developing magnetic separation and metal detection equipment that removes contaminant particles efficiently and precisely, ensuring the purity, quality, and safety of the end product.
Magnetic separation utilizes powerful magnets to pull out ferrous metal contaminants from a product line, trapping them against the face of the magnet and ensuring they cannot re-enter the product stream. The strength of the magnetic field means that continued product flow, no matter how rapid, will not be able to dislodge the ferrous material from where it has been initially trapped.
Metal detection systems generate an electromagnetic field that material is flowed through, sensing and rejecting any ferrous or non-ferrous metal that is hidden within the product. In situations where a magnetic separator may be unable to remove a non-ferrous contaminant, such as aluminum, a metal detector is able to sense this metal and remove the contaminated section of product from the greater flow of operations.
Bunting products are custom designed, built to last, and deliver superior results. We look forward to hearing from you in the future!
