A new line of "Smart Controls" for extrusion compounding will be shown at NPE on a new size of co-rotating twin-screw extruder from Entek Manufacturing Inc. in Lebanon, Ore. The new 40-mm-diam. E-Max 40 extruder replaces the previous 36-mm unit as Entek's smallest production size. (There's also a 27-mm lab model.) Entek's new color touchscreen controls, which will be available on all its twin-screw extruders, are said to be relatively low cost for their range of features, including production monitoring, trending, and ability to control all extruder and downstream equipment functions from a single panel.
