EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING NPE: Flexibility, Speed and Quality
Extrusion processors need more—of everything—to compete. And suppliers responded in force in Orlando.

As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.

2013 was good for N.A. equipment suppliers; Can 2014 Overcome a Slow Start?
The North American plastics equipment market saved its best for last in 2013, delivering shipments valued at $335.1 million in the fourth quarter—the best three-month stretch of the year and up 3% from the previous quarter. Will that momentum hold in 2014, however?

ENTEK Carbide-Lined Extrusion Barrels Provide Higher Rigidity, Improved Wear Resistance
ENTEK has developed a new manufacturing process for producing carbide-lined extrusion barrels.

FEATURED PRODUCT: ENTEK E-MAX 40mm Twin-Screw Extruder
The new ENTEK E-MAX 40mm twin-screw extruder, introduced at NPE 2006, is ideal for custom compounding applications.

High-Output Compounding With High Wood Content
Entek Extruders, Lebanon, Ore., got its start in building twin-screw extruders for its own processing of highly filled compounds for battery separators (50% silica, 14% oil, 20% UHMW-PE, and the rest additives and colorant). Now it is applying that experience to twin-screw design for processing high filler loadings in wood-plastic composites (WPCs). The firm recently demonstrated new screw and processing technology with two vacuum vents for 25% higher output of WPCs.
