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 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.

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.

Gloucester’s novel WOW winder wraps

NPE News in Extrusion
This NPE show won’t have a lot of extruders on the floor, either running or static. Instead, look for videos and announcements of new technology. You will also find lots of ingenious peripheral devices to improve output and quality and save resin. Some will do all three, and cost less into the bargain.

Don't Let IBC Problems Burst Your Bubble
Under-blowing of air in internal bubble cooling (IBC) systems for blown film can cause the bubble to suck in or actually collapse.

First Integrated Control of Secondary Sizing Cage
Secondary bubble-sizing cages are used on about 10% of blown film lines that have extra-tall towers or long, thin bubbles or ones that make products like heavy-duty sacks, for which centering the bubble before the collapsing frame is critical.

Nine-Layer Blown Film: Why It's a Challenge, What It Takes to Succeed
Eight years after nine-layer blown films were first introduced, only a handful of processors have mastered the challenges of making them. Machine suppliers are now setting up lab lines that could make entry easier.

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.
