“Not only do we save time, but we also get clear, reproducible results”

The RCS Group is a family-run, medium-sized recycling and waste management company founded in 1985 and based in Werne, Germany. Today, the activities are bundled into three business segments. While RCS Entsorgung GmbH coordinates the transport and disposal of waste for commercial customers, RCS Rohstoffverwertung GmbH sorts PET flakes for the non-food plastics processing industry. In addition, RCS Plastics GmbH processes the latter into high-quality regranulate for preform and beverage bottle manufacturers. To ensure the required food quality of the recycled material, the company group relies on SIKORA’s PURITY CONCEPT V for the quality control of the rPET flakes and pellets.

At SIKORA’s first trade show appearance at Plastpol, visitors can look forward to live device demos and thus convince themselves of their performance.


“You get a measurement you trust”

HÖHLE is a manufacturer of first-class microducts that are used for building fiber-optical networks to house optical fiber cables as a protective channel. Located in Estonia, the company uses SIKORA X-ray measuring systems in its plant for quality control during the extrusion of microducts.

How to provide pure raw material for perfect films in food packaging

Industrie Polieco-MPB uses SIKORA’s PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED to ensure highest material purity for their adhesives. The Italian-based Industrie Polieco-MPB group is the biggest European compounder of polyethylene and polypropylene. With its pipe division (Polieco), it is further one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of high-density, polyethylene, corrugated pipe systems. Within its compounding division (MPB), the company uses sorting systems for quality control to inspect and sort pellets which will be mainly used for films for food packaging. For this, Industrie Polieco-MPB relies on SIKORA’s inspection and sorting system PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED and thus ensures its customers the highest material quality.

PMH relies on SIKORA for quality control of filaments for 3D printing

PMH GmbH is a German manufacturer of individual extrusion lines with over 30 years of expertise. In addition to standard extrusion lines, the plant in Königswinter, Germany, also manufactures complete filament lines in which filaments for the 3D printer industry are produced.

Highest quality of submarine cables ensured

The world is facing a number of challenges today, one of which is the energy transition. For this to succeed, submarine cables of the highest quality are needed, among other things, to transport electricity from offshore wind farms over greater distances to the mainland. The Chinese manufacturer Qingdao Hanlan therefore relies on SIKORA’s measuring and control devices of the X-RAY 8000 device series for quality control in its CV lines.

Efficient quality control at the end of the CV line

Many submarine cable manufacturers, such as the Chinese company Ningbo Orient, rely on X-ray devices from SIKORA for quality control in CV lines. In addition, producers of power cables benefit from the final quality control as it ensures the highest quality of the cables delivered to their customers.
