Briquetting of polymers

Eidos Works briquetting presses are able to effectively treat polymeric materials that can be in the form of chips or powder. Eidos Works presses are able to compact, for example, waste resulting from chip removal operations or additive manufacturing processes.

The reduction in chip volume and the recovery of the lubricant allow a reduction in the management costs of the waste and a saving in terms of lubricant supply.

Eidos Works briquetting machines are designed to operate independently 24 hours a day and can be easily integrated into production processes. In fact, they can be added to individual machine tools, completely solving the chip management problems at the source.


  • Recovery of expensive lubricants
  • Significant reduction in chip volume
  • Briquetting of powdery materials
  • Significant reduction in waste management and transport costs
  • Cleaning and safety in the workplace
  • Environmental protection

Briquetting is a process of plastic deformation, consequently the elastic return that characterizes certain polymeric materials does not always allow to obtain a compact briquette, although cleaned of the oils that impregnate the chip and with a very small footprint.

Depending on the customer's needs, Eidos offers a range of presses for polymers with production capacity ranging from 10 to 50 kg/h. The required productivity will influence the choice of briquette format.
