A Message from Schenck Process
As Seen In Plastics Technology
Augmented Auxiliaries At K 2016
Incremental improvements to existing technologies combined with altogether new advances at the giant show.
AUXILIARIES AT NPE: More Control, Flexibility, And Energy Efficiency
These are key trends in the many kinds of auxiliary equipment displayed at this month’s show. You’ll also see equipment designed to be virtually ‘foolproof.’
FEEDING: New Software Improves Batch Feeding Accuracy
'Bumping' is said to reduce batch-feeding errors by up to 50%.
AUXILIARIES: Reduce Batch Feeding Error Rate by 50%
Process is called 'bumping.'
MATERIALS HANDLING: Mac Process Merges with Schenck AccuRate
Two majors in dry bulk handling combine forces.
Improve the Performance Of Your Gravimetric Feeder
Start with seeing how well the material feeds 'volumetrically.' But there are a host of other considerations as well.
Versatile Feeder For Compounders, Extruders
Maximum versatility, small footprint.
AUXILIARIES: Versatile Dry-Material Feeders
The newest Mechatron dry material feeders from Schenk AccuRate, Whitewater, Wis., offer complete disassembly from the non-process side of the feeder, which eliminates the need to remove upper extension hoppers, bins, bulk bags, and IBCs to clean or maintain the unit.
Materials Handling: New Equipment Emphasizes Efficiency & Value
Visitors to the recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago were looking for materials handling equipment that could do more than dry, blend, or convey resins. It had to do those things while saving energy, providing faster and easier maintenance, speeding product changeovers, reducing labor cost, minimizing waste, and providing better value for money. The new products cited below addressed those needs and more.
Low-Rate Feeder Has Disposable EPDM Hopper
New PureFeed AI-300 feeder from Schenck AccuRate, Whitewater, Wis., is designed for metering additives at rates as low as 1.1 lb/hr, though larger feed augers are available for up to 330 lb/hr.
New ProFlex® C 500 Feeder For Plastics Compounders and Extruder Manufacturers
Designed specifically for extruder manufacturers and compounders, the new ProFlex® C 500 feeder packs maximum versatility into a very space and cost efficient package that?s easy to operate, reconfigure, clean, and service.
Flexible Weigh Feeder For Extrusion, Compounding
Designed for flexibility in mounting and clustering, the new ProFlex C feeder permits interchanging the drive-motor and material-discharge positions.
Feeders Go Wireless
Volumetric and gravimetric feeders from Schenck AccuRate, Whitewater, Wis., now can have optional Bluetooth wireless technology.
Touchscreen Feeder Control
A single-feeder operator interface with lighted touchscreen LCD display is new from Schenck AccuRate, Whitewater, Wis.
NPE 2006 News Wrap-Up: Materials Handling: A Host of Refinements and Updates
NPE 2006 held no revolutionary changes in dryers, blenders, feeders, loaders, or conveying controls, but widely adopted improvements make the newest models easier to use and maintain—and easier on the budget, too.
What to See at NPE 2006: Materials and Parts Handling
Dryers, feeders, blenders, loaders, metal detectors, level sensors, mechanical and pneumatic conveyors, silos, bins, pumps, filters, valves, box fillers, bag dumpers, and materials-handling control systems constitute one of the biggest categories of products on display at NPE.
NPE Newsfinder: Materials & Parts Handling
From pneumatic systems that deliver materials to the processing machine to conveyors and handling devices that pull parts out the back, the trend appears to be “smaller and smarter.” NPE 2000 will show lots of downsized auxiliaries designed for mini processing machines, as well as more compact equipment of every size that frees up floor space.
