KAHL plan, design, and build machines, plants, and turnkey production factories for conditioning and compacting of many different products for a wide variety of industries.

The flat die pelleting press and the annular gap expander are the most successful products of KAHL.

AMANDUS KAHL is a medium-sized family-owned company managed by its proprietors. It was founded in 1876 as a manufacturer of mills and pelleting presses. Today, we look back on more than 125 years of machine and plant construction.

Around 1920, the extrusion press was designed, patented, and sold worldwide. In 1920, the first pelleting press was delivered - the forerunner of the flat die pelleting press which has been constantly improved to this day.

The company has made many important inventions with registered patents. Our motivation has always been to find an even better technical solution for our customers. The main machines and plant components are produced in our central factory at Reinbek near Hamburg which has been certified acc. to DIN EN ISO 9001.

Research, design, development, and synergies with research establishments, institutes, universities as well as our international customers are essential functions of our company. We attach great importance to service. Our services include a pilot plant for tests with customer products, a net of engineers as well as business establishments and representations world-wide.

Our Contribution to Recycling

The treatment of waste and residual materials is one of the most important issues of the future. Since the 1970s KAHL has dealt with plant technologies aiming at a reasonable and economic recovery.

The sophisticated KAHL flat die pelleting presses are suitable for the production of fluff and pellets for thermal or material recovery. The pelleting presses are the central elements of many custom-made turn-key recycling plants built by us. We reasonably complete our flat die pelleting presses by plants for grinding, drying and cooling.

We offer consultation and assistance from the start of the project until after-sales service.


KAHL technology is suitable for
  • Waste tyres
  • Domestic waste
  • Industrial waste
  • Sewage sludge
  • Plastic waste
  • Wood waste
  • Waste paper
  • ...

Concentrated Energy

The energy crisis in the 1970s induced KAHL to deal with the issue of pelleting renewable raw materials. We started off with research assignments and continuously developed and improved our processes. Our customers benefit from the experience we gathered in this field. The result is an economic process with high quality pellets.

From the small individual press to industrial wood pelleting: We can realise all the desired sizes (from 300 kg/h to 8,000 kg/h per press). Construction of heavy machinery pays off. Our plants are characterised by a high operational safety and availability also for continuous operation. Pan grinder mills, belt driers, pelleting presses and coolers, are produced in our factory at Reinbek near Hamburg.

We offer consultation and assistance from the start of the project until after-sales service.

KAHL technology is suitable for:
  • Wood waste
  • Saw mill waste
  • Wood and sanding dust
  • Straw
  • Dried forage
  • By-products of cereals and legumes
  • ... and many more

Our experimental department is responsible for the development of new processes and machines. It is provided with an extensive pilot plant with laboratory, production machines, and measuring equipment for the most important process stages of the conditioning technology. The plant is available to prospective buyers and customers who want to have their own products tested. On the basis of the results achieved plant designs and offers can be prepared.
