BHS-Sonthofen ships stainless-steel mixer for plastics production

August 5, 2021
Technology from Germany, made in China – that is BHS-Sonthofen’s approach for supplying the Chinese market. An HTC 4300 stainless-steel mixer was recently shipped from the BHS factory in Tianjin. The customer – a plastics manufacturer in southern China – is already using the mixer after a five-month delivery period.

“Our site in Shanghai and production facility in Tianjin have allowed us to establish a strong footing in these locations. This, in turn, allows us to provide our customers with local support and achieve short delivery times,” says Volker Spies, Managing Director at BHS-Sonthofen Process Technology GmbH & Co. KG.

BHS-Sonthofen has equipped its production facility in Tianjin with state-of-the-art technology for the production of its stainless-steel machines. Integrating key components from Germany made with German engineering expertise allows BHS to provide its customers with high-quality machines within reasonable delivery times. In doing so, the company places a strong emphasis on quality assurance processes. In order to live up to its promise of quality and meet the high demands of the users, BHS has also fully implemented the proven processes it uses in its German manufacturing facilities at its location in China.

The recently shipped horizontal mixer has a capacity of more than 10 tons per hour and is being used to mix nylon with the master batch as well as solid and liquid additives. The customer frequently changes their formulas, so supplying machines that are easy to clean was a key argument when it came to placing the order. The large, easily accessible cleaning doors make this possible. The customer was also impressed by BHS-Sonthofen’s local service concept. Local, qualified service engineers at BHS-Sonthofen Process Solutions Co., Ltd. in Shanghai are on hand to ensure the customer facilities in China receive fast, expert support. “This tried-and-tested concept speaks for itself,” Spies emphasizes. “We have even bigger follow-up orders already in production, such as from the pharmaceutical industry in China.”
