K 2016 Preview: Extrusion and Compounding
Regardless of what you might be extruding, the themes of speed and flexibility will loom large in extrusion at the giant show.
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.
News Highlights from NPE2015
Here’s a first look at new technology in materials, auxiliaries, and all types of processes.
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: 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.
EXTRUSION & COMPOUNDING: Five-Layer Film Structures Set to Supplant Three Layers?
In blown film, equipment and material suppliers have come together to push five-layer technology into non-barrier applications previously held by three-layer films.
K 2010 Preview, Extrusion More…Layers, Output & Quality
In most segments of extrusion technology, the word at K 2010 is more.
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 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.
NPE 2009 News Flash
Injection MoldingHybrid Press Has Electric ClampNew injection presses that combine servo-electric and hydraulic movements to achieve high performance with energy efficiency will be discussed by Arburg Inc., Newington, Conn.
K 2007 Extrusion: Extrusion Outputs Go Through the Roof
Dramatic production demonstrations of cast and blown film set throughput records on the show floor in Dusseldorf.
New-Style Motors on 9-Layer Blown Film Line
Twenty-fi ve permanent-magnet synchronous torque motors from Siemens power a nine-layer blown film line being built by Macchi in Italy for a customer in Eastern Europe. (Macchi North America recently moved from Guelph, Ont., to Gainesville, Ga.) The new "syntorque" motors are said to offer high torque plus energy savings.
NPE 2006 News Wrap-Up: Recycling and Scrap Reclaim
NPE was full of new equipment and systems for recapturing valuable in-plant scrap and post-consumer/post-industrial plastic waste. Recovery of PET packaging and film or fiber waste were particular areas of emphasis, as were lots of new granulators, from the world’s biggest to micro-size and even ‘clean-room’ models.
What to See at NPE 2006: Extrusion
The new factor in extrusion machinery at this NPE is the influx of Asian suppliers.
All-Gearless Motors Run Blown Film Lines
At the Milan Plast show in February, Macchi SpA of Italy ran a coex blown film line driven entirely by energy-efficient gearless motors-probably a world first.
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.
K 2004 Wrap-Up on Extrusion: Extruder Outputs Rise, Downstream Units Gain Flexibility
The show was packed with new equipment for pipe and profile, including extruders redesigned for higher outputs and/or lower cost, plus new ways to adjust die and calibrator diameters or switch dies and calibrators more quickly.
