As seen in PT


    As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.

  • Compounding & Mixing at NPE 2003

    Torque levels and output capacities of corotating twin-screw compounders coming to NPE are higher than ever.

  • In Twin-Screw Compounding, Distinguish Between ‘Disease’ and ‘Illness’

     The concept of troubleshooting in compounding can be defined in terms of a problem (or problems) with compound quality or as a problem with the compounding process.

  • NPE 2009 Wrap-Up: New Machinery for Extrusion and Compounding

    Extrusion machinery at the June NPE show in Chicago showed inventive ways to get more out of your floorspace and materials.

  • NPE News in Compounding

    Compounding news at the show includes several new ways to feed low-bulk-density materials faster for higher outputs with corotating twin screws.

  • New Sizes of Sino-U.S. Twin-Screw Compounders

    Earlier this year, Century Extrusion, Traverse City, Mich., launched its Apex corotating twin-screw extruder line in sizes with center distances of 40 to 95 mm.

  • Torque & Speed How Much Is Enough?

    You may be thinking of buying one of the new ‘high-torque/high-speed’ twin-screw compounders in order to raise your output without going to a larger machine. But how much torque or speed do you really need? Underusing a high-powered extruder wastes investment dollars. So look carefully at what is required for the materials you run.

  • Compounding & Mixing

    For the second straight NPE show, the focus in compounding is on twin-screw machines that deliver more speed and torque—thus more output—than ever before. No fewer than six suppliers of twin-screw compounders are showing such machines. There’s something to see in in-line systems as well. And there’s plenty of news in PVC mixers and pelletizing equipment, too.
