WEB EXCLUSIVE At the NPE show next month, Wittmann Battenfeld, Torrington, Conn., will show the new Drymax E Series, the latest version of its Drymax twin-bed central dryers. They have new pneumatic switchover valves for faster changes between desiccant beds. This helps improve process stability, Wittmann says. The valves use only a tiny amount of compressed air. Also important to preventing temperature and dewpoint spikes during bed changeover is the proprietary SmoothShift function, inherited from previous Drymax models, which provides a sliding changeover and a stable process. Wittmann claims its Drymax E models consume roughly half as much energy/lb of resin as typical wheel dryers. (860) 496-9603 * www.wittmann-ct.com

Resin drying, resin conveying and process heating and cooling are as vital to the injection molding process as the press and tool, and they get their due at Molding 2017.
