Vacuum System Types


Resin Conveying Systems commonly fit into one of the following four categories:      

  • Single Source - Single Destination: Extrusion, thermoforming, and injection (preforms)
  • Single Source - Multiple Destination: Extrusion, injection (caps), and blowmolding (containers)
  • Multiple Source - Single Destination: Extrusion
  • Multiple Source - Multiple Destination: Injection, extrusion (tubing, wire & cable)

Conveying Controls

Touchscreens are the latest form of interface to be applied to the control of polymer conveying systems. A touchscreen can be made to operate either a programmable logic control (PLC) or a microprocessor-based control.more (+)
