Nordson Xaloy, New Castle, Pa., will introduce two new products at K 2013 in Düsseldorf this month.
Nordson Corp. continues to add to its portfolio of plastics equipment companies with the purchase of Kreyenborg GmbH, which makes screen changers; and sister company BKG Bruckmann, which makes pelletizers.
In a span of two weeks last month, Nordson Corp. spent $400 million to expand its interests in plastics.
Xaloy, Inc., New Castle, Pa., has acquired Spirex Corp., Youngstown, Ohio.
Maintenance departments often clean screws wrongly, causing serious and expensive damage.
Compounding news at the show includes several new ways to feed low-bulk-density materials faster for higher outputs with corotating twin screws.
If a better machine can help your company beat challenging economic conditions, you’ll probably find it at NPE. And finding it will be easier, thanks to our editors’ efforts to sift out of some 2000 exhibits the most significant news in injection and blow molding, extrusion, compounding, and thermoforming.
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.
U.S. injection molders are still pretty green when it comes to processing the new crop of renewably sourced biopolymers. These biologically derived polymers made from PLA, PHA and starch-based resins are attracting growing market interest as materials with no ties to petrochemical-based thermoplastics.
An energy-saving induction barrel-heating option is now available directly from Ferromatik Milacron Europe North America, Batavia, Ohio.
Xaloy Inc., Pulaski, Va., has built the first scaled-up, commercial version of a patented extensional-flow mixing device, under exclusive license from Stratek Plastic Ltd. in Wallingford, Conn.
Bolt-on High-Performance (BHP) valve-gate nozzles from Herzog AG in Switzerland (represented here by Xaloy Inc., Pulaski, Va.) have been redesigned to improve melt flow 25% while imparting less shear stress to the melt.
WEB EXCLUSIVE Xaloy Inc., New Castle, Pa., recently began extrusion trials of its energy-saving nXheat induction heaters on extruder barrels.
Determining the optimum barrel-temperature profile is one of the most important tasks in extrusion.
Extruder operators often don’t compare the barrel-zone temperatures to the recommended processing temperature for the resin being run.
Xaloy Inc., New Castle, Pa., has come up with a more economical “hybrid” version of its nXheat induction heating system for injection machine barrels (previously named Indx). It combines power-saving induction heating in the feed zone with conventional heater bands in the downstream zones.
New single-loop temperature controls in 1/16 DIN and 1/8 DIN sizes are available from Dynisco, Franklin, Mass.
Dramatic energy savings, greater reliability, and much faster response than conventional heater bands are being claimed for an alternative that will debut at next month’s K 2007 show in Dusseldorf.
Compounding machinery news at the K Show next month focuses on more torque, more output, and sometimes both, for kneaders, mixers, and twin-screw extruders.
A novel method of heating injection barrels by electromagnetic induction will be unveiled at the K 2007 show in Dusseldorf in October by Xaloy Inc., New Castle, Pa.
