Due to its modular design, the ZSK MEGAcompounder is ideally suited for and adaptable to all processes. From LLDPE, HDPE, or PP powders (that are premixed continuously with additives and fed to the ZSK), to LDPE melts that must be pelletized, or melt solutions from which solvents are removed.
Long Fiber Thermoplastics (LFT)
Twin screw extruders from Coperion have been used successfully for the production of long fiber thermoplastics for many years. The pultrusion pellets are an integral part of the automotive and vehicle industry as well as the building trade, sports equipment and furniture. The lightweight building material features very good mechanical properties with low weight and at the same time makes high demands on the compounding process.
Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE)
All over the world, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are produced in a wide variety of forms and recipes using Twin-screw compounders ZSK. In some instances, the processing stage is followed by heating to produce semi-finished products. Due to their molecular structure, thermoplastic elastomers possess elastic properties combined with thermoplastic processing characteristics.
Effective this month, K-Tron, Pitman, N.J., a global supplier of feeding, dosing, and pneumatic conveying equipment and systems, will operate under the brand name Coperion K-Tron.
Compounders face a number of processing challenges when incorporating a high loading of low-bulk-density mineral filler into polyolefins. Here are some possible solutions.

channel depth in larger machines, which exposes the material to less mechanical stress at comparable residence times.
Smaller parts, a wider range of resins and reinforcements,and retrofittable molding equipment were among the news indirect-compounded long-fiber thermoplastics presented at a recent Plastics Technology conference. Extrusion and thermoforming are also new extensions of this process.
Extrusion machinery at the June NPE show in Chicago showed inventive ways to get more out of your floorspace and materials.
Compounding news at the show includes several new ways to feed low-bulk-density materials faster for higher outputs with corotating twin screws.
