Extrusion at NPE 2003
NPE is typically a competitive display of the biggest, most dramatic equipment machine builders can muster.
NPE News in Compounding
Compounding news at the show includes several new ways to feed low-bulk-density materials faster for higher outputs with corotating twin screws.
Highest Torque Gearbox
A gearbox developed by Zambello Riduttori in Italy (U.S. office in Wayne, N.J.) is said to offer the world's highest torque for twin-screw compounding.
NPE 2000 News Wrap-Up: Compounding
Compounding news at NPE included a wealth of new batch and continuous machines to mix in high loadings of wood flour, glass fiber, carbon black, and more exotic fillers.
NPE Highlights Compounding's Growth Niches
Show exhibitors say long-fiber wood composites, direct extrusion/compounding, and reactive compounding are where the action is.
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.
