A revised, compact version of the successful ZSK Mc18 twin screw extruder series are among the highlights of Coperion Corporation’s display at K 2016. Coperion (U.S. office Sewell, N.J.) will also launch a new product for polyolefin production: The UG 750W underwater pelletizer features an innovative corrosion and wear protection concept for a significantly extended die plate service life.

In conveying, Coperion will show a newly developed deflector elbow called Gamma-Bend-It that reportedly prevents angel hair buildup. The machine builder’s highly automated ITL 250 form-fill-seal pellet-packaging machine will also be on display (photo).

In feeding, Coperion K-Tron will show the newly developed Electronic Pressure Compensation that allows for even more precision and reliability in loss-in-weight feeders, as well as the Smart Flow Meter, which is designed to measure bulk material flows gently and reliably at great accuracy.
