EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING AT NPE: Flexibility, Speed, Quality Rule the Day
Extrusion processors need more—of everything—to compete. And suppliers responded in force in Orlando.
EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING AT NPE: The Word Is ‘More’
As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.
EXTRUSION: Quick-Change 'Dimple' Former for Sheet
Change from one to another in fewer than two hours.
Extrusion/Compounding at K 2013: Having It All
Extrusion processors no longer need to chose among speed, quality, and flexibility, based on exhibits at K 2013.
Nano-Layer Shrink Film: Strong But Thin
Ultra-thin stretch-oriented blown shrink film now can be processed using the Layer Sequence Repeater (LSR) technology developed by BBS Corp., Spartanburg, S.C.
Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: Advances Push Efficiency Envelope
Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.
Changes Aplenty Among Extruder Suppliers
Last month bought three changes of significance among equipment suppliers of extruded film and sheet.•Gloucester Engineering Co., Gloucester Mass., announced it had acquired Future Design Inc., Mississauga, Ont.
K 2010 Preview, Extrusion More…Layers, Output & Quality
In most segments of extrusion technology, the word at K 2010 is more.
Automatic Gauge Control: Comparing the Options
Until recently, blown-film processors looking for auto-gauge control had a choice of one segmented-die system, one IBC-based system, and several segmented air rings. Now there are at least nine auto-dies, including two for high-stalk bubbles, and lots of air-ring variations. All claim to improve gauge uniformity, but there are differences.
NPE Newsfinder: Extrusion
NPE will show higher outputs of practically everything, as advances in grooved feeds, servo drives, screw torque, mixing screws, dies, and downstream cooling, cutting, and handling make everything run faster.
Winders: They're Pushing New Limits In Speed and Tension Control
New-generation winders for blown and cast film are winding bigger, better rolls at higher speeds and lower tension. They've gotten so fast that cast film lines can now realize their full productive potential.
