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/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.

Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: More Output, More Flexibility, Less Energy
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.

Westchester Plastics Adds Capacity
Significant expansion at its Wapakoneta, Ohio, plant.

NPE Newsfinder: Compounding and 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.

NPE Highlights Compounding's Growth Niches
Show exhibitors say long-fiber wood composites, direct extrusion/compounding, and reactive compounding are where the action is.

High-speed, high-torque line

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.
