ICMA Sets Up Lab Line In Michigan

Italian twin-screw compounder available for trials.

Italy’s ICMA San Giorgio has set up a twin-screw compounding lab line for North American trials in Monroe, Mich. The line is equipped with ICMA’s 50-mm diameter co-rotating twin-screw extruder, part of its MCM high-torque family, and is reportedly suited to run a wide range of engineering resins and filled compounds. The MCM line can be equipped with a nominal specific torque of 9 Nm/cm3, and up to 16 Nm/cm3.

Two years ago ICMA signed a representation agreement with Prescott Machine, Saginaw, Mich. Says Prescott CEO Ray Miller, “Having a production line for testing in this market offers a greater opportunity to those American companies wishing to test ICMA’S extruders locally.”
