Yiyang, China – ChemChina-owned Yiyang Rubber & Plastics Machinery has signed an order for 12 internal mixers with an unnamed, major tire company in China.
Yiyang to supply 12 internal mixers to Chinese tire maker
The equipment will be used to upgrade a new tire production line for the Shandong province-based customer, ChemChina said in a statement in September.
Marking Yiyan’s “largest single” order for internal mixers, the equipment includes GN-300 and GK-400N mixers. The units are said to offer high output and low energy-consumption.
The optimised mixers have 5% higher production efficiency compared to their predecessors, said the statement.
Yiyang, it added, has improved its design and technology under the guidance of KraussMaffei. Experts from the, now ChemChina-owned, German company are working at the plant.
The Chinese machinery company said it also expects the Shandong customer to invest in multiple GE 320E/GE590T tandem-mixer production lines at the plant.
