‘Groundbreakingly accurate’ machine features unified software platform between all laboratory and online production equipment.

The LMI5500 Series Melt Flow Indexer from Dynisco, Franklin Park, Mass., has an array of features and benefits that range from “ground-breaking accuracy” to a unified software platform between all laboratory and online production equipment.

The LMI5500 brings a new level of ease of use with its easy to clean removable inspection plate, increased access for sample cutting, and revamped intuitive touch screen. This enables processors to obtain detailed analytics between lab and production data globally on a single dashboard with the Win10 IoT Core + Single Board Computer (SBC) platform, the company says.

The LMI5500 Series features and benefits include:

• New Capacitive Windows 10 IoT Native Interface

• Capacitive Touch Screen

• Built in WIFI, Ethernet and Bluetooth

• HDMI and multiple USB ports

• Enhanced temperature calibration for ASTM D1238, ISO 1133-1 and -2 Standards

• Increased access to the die for sample cutting with a strategically placed mirror to easily view the die and cutting area

• Easy to clean, removeable inspection mirror and sample plate

Compact footprint with a 3.5” reduction in depth

• Direct digital scale USB interface for sample weighing

• Digital Encoder for use with B, A/B, and intrinsic viscosity (IV) correlation

• Multiple languages available

A gravitational-correction feature (provisional patent obtained) takes into account gravity based on one’s geographical location.


  • Melt Flow Rate Testing–Part 8

    Here are the steps to take in cases where the MFR is not provided by the polymer supplier.

  • How to Buy Universal Testing Machines

    More processors today are buyingso-called ‘universal’ testers to measure tensile, flexural, compressive, and shear properties for materials evaluation, application development, and quality control. Advanced electronics have improved these instruments’ performance and ease of use—and even led to lower prices.

  • Melt Flow Rate Testing—Part 3

    There is a well-established relationship between something called the weight-average molecular weight of a polymer and a parameter known as the zero-shear viscosity.
