Novel On-Line Rheometer; In-Line Molding Specimen Device
Two major suppliers of extrusion and/or in-line process testing/monitoring equipment showcased novel systems at K 2016.
• Brabender has its new SpeciMold injection molding specimen device designed for in-line continuous extrusion processing. It takes a stream of material and injects it into the mold to make nearly all of the physical testing bars, including, tensile, impact, HDT/Vicat, flexural, and spiral flow. It is also well suited to molding color masterbatch samples to make sure the colorant disperses well and for ensuring the color match is correct for the intended customer.
