A Message from Coperion K-Tron
As Seen In Plastics Technology
Augmented Auxiliaries At K 2016
Incremental improvements to existing technologies combined with altogether new advances at the giant show.
How to Troubleshoot Your Feeder to Achieve Optimal Performance
Even the tiniest improvements in compounding feeder accuracy can improve profits. Here’s how to keep your feeding system in the pink.
FEEDING: Electronic Pressure Compensation for Loss-in-Weight Feeders
'Clever but simple electronic solution' for accurate and steady pressure compensation in feeder hoppers.
FEEDING: Redesigned Scale for Loss-In-Weight Feeding
More hygienic, accurate, and easy to clean.
Kansas State Opens First Bulk Solids Innovation Center
It's the first research facility of its kind in North America.
AUXILIARIES AT NPE: More Control, Flexibility, And Energy Efficiency
These are key trends in the many kinds of auxiliary equipment displayed at this month’s show. You’ll also see equipment designed to be virtually ‘foolproof.’
Breaking Ground for Bulk Solids Innovation Center
Facility is expected to be open in April. Coperion K-Tron, Vortex Valves among anchor tenants.
The Paradox of Proportioning
Continuous proportioning typically involves a group of gravimetric feeders operating under some form of higher level coordinating control. One would think the result should be a perfectly formulated composite stream. But the devil is in the details.
Recycling News at K 2013
New developments combine recycling and compounding in one step. Plenty of news at K in size reduction and de-labeling.
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.
Auxiliaries at K 2013: More Efficient, Flexible & User-Friendly
It’s hard to generalize about auxiliary equipment, but a few trends stood out at K, including: greater energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and cleaning, controls that provide more real-time and historical process information and greater ease of use.
K-Tron Adopts Coperion Name
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.
Micro-Ingredient Feeder to Debut at K 2013
K-Tron will introduce a low-rate, micro-ingredient feeder.
Auxiliaries at NPE: News in Materials Handling, Cooling, Granulating, Welding, Testing, Decorating
Auxiliary equipment takes in a broad range of functions, from materials preparation to post-mold finishing.
Auxiliaries at NPE: New Solutions from Material Preparation To Post-Mold Operations
There will be an extraordinary range of new auxiliary equipment on display at the show.
Look Upstream to Avoid ‘GIGO’ Pitfalls in Extrusion
You may think you have a feeding issue when in reality your problem may be upstream.
K-Tron Is Sold
Hillenbrand, Inc., Batesville, Ind., the holding company for Batesville Casket Co., a leader in funeral services products, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire K-Tron International, Pitman, N.J.
Materials Handling: New Equipment Emphasizes Efficiency & Value
Visitors to the recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago were looking for materials handling equipment that could do more than dry, blend, or convey resins. It had to do those things while saving energy, providing faster and easier maintenance, speeding product changeovers, reducing labor cost, minimizing waste, and providing better value for money. The new products cited below addressed those needs and more.
Hopper Vibrator Prevents Bridging
A new hopper vibrating unit is said to prevent bridging and rat-holing of cohesive, hard-to-flow bulk materials in stainless-steel hoppers.
Gravimetric Control of Coex Layer Thickness
K-Tron Process Group, Pitman, N.J., has developed its first gravimetric extrusion controls, designed for durable applications like multilayer films or sheet for automotive use or wire and cable coatings, where the thickness of critical functional layers may have to be guaranteed.
