As Seen In Plastics Technology

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.

Gravimetric Blender Boasts Added Precision

Gravimetric Blender Boasts Added Precision
Whereas most batch gravimetric blenders weigh each ingredient one at a time into a blender bowl, Plast Control’s first gravimetric blender has two weigh chambers with load cells.

BEX’s high speed 75-mm extruder

What's New at the Show in EXTRUSION
It’s all about higher speeds and higher outputs at this year’s “K” show in Germany.

Alpine’s new X Series 7-layer die

NPE 2006 News Wrap-Up: Extrusion
 NPE 2006 presented a bevy of features to make film, sheet, pipe, and profile extrusion more efficient.

Low-profile Model 2420 PVC compound vacuum receiver

What to See at NPE 2006: Materials and Parts Handling
Dryers, feeders, blenders, loaders, metal detectors, level sensors, mechanical and pneumatic conveyors, silos, bins, pumps, filters, valves, box fillers, bag dumpers, and materials-handling control systems constitute one of the biggest categories of products on display at NPE.

Capacitance Thickness Gauges: New Designs Break Old Barriers
Economical, non-nuclear capacitance gauges are opening new markets in blown film—primarily in barrier films, where they previously suffered serious shortcomings. New gauge designs, and new ways of mounting them, make capacitance technology much more flexible.

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.

In Auxiliary Equipment--Small Is Big
Auxiliary equipment is shrinking to catch up with a growing market for small precision parts. Dryers, loaders, blenders, grinders, and chillers have all dropped in size for accuracy and fast product changeovers.
