As Seen In Plastics Technology
Auxiliary Equipment: Rotary-Style Melt Filter
Billed as the ideal filtration system for applications that benefit from a continuous, pressure and process constant screen changer, but that don’t require back-flushing
NPE2018 Technology Focus: Sheet Extrusion
Space-saving, high-speed line for PP and PS packaging, new options in 'no-dry' PET among the highlights in Orlando.
Extrusion/Compounding at NPE2018: More…More…More!
More speed, flexibility and robustness. Across a gamut of extrusion applications, machine builders are introducing new machinery, components, and systems to dramatically raise the bar on productivity.
No-Dry PET Sheet Can Be Foamed Too
The line is made for processing undried, uncrystallized PET at rates up to 2000 lb/hr and can switch from rigid to physically foamed PET.
Redesigned Melt-Filtration Systems
Patented rotary filtration systems are completely encapsulated by two filter blocks with a hatch-door allowing access without interrupting the production process.
RSFgenius M Filtration Systems Up and Running In South America
The filtration system from Gneuss was first introduced at K 2013.
EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING NPE: Flexibility, Speed and Quality
Extrusion processors need more—of everything—to compete. And suppliers responded in force in Orlando.
RECYCLING/SCRAP RECLAIM AT NPE: Less Waste And Lower Maintenance
Whether for commercial recycling or in-house scrap reclaim, new systems boast reduced maintenance, higher throughput, and less waste of resin for purging.
EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING AT NPE: The Word Is ‘More’
As in speed, power, quality, flexibility, layers, and efficiency. Those are the trends across all extrusion processes.
Extrusion/Compounding at K 2013: Having It All
Extrusion processors no longer need to chose among speed, quality, and flexibility, based on exhibits at K 2013.
K 2013 Preview: Extrusion, Compounding, Recycling
Across all extrusion technologies, expect to see new standards in speed, quality, flexibility, and efficiency in both energy and material usage.
Unique Extruder Reclaims Nylon 11 Oil Pipe
A British recycling company has found an interesting application for the MRS Extrusion System from Gneuss (U.S. office in Matthews, N.C.). K2 Polymers Ltd. in Loughborough, U.K., which specializes in recycling engineering resins, is using the MRS (Multi Rotation System) to reprocess nylon 11 regrind heavily contaminated with oil.The regrind came from deep-sea oil pipes that were scrapped after having been recovered from the sea floor at a depleted oilfield.
Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: Advances Push Efficiency Envelope
Blown film towers may have been scarce, but there was no shortage of new technology aimed at helping to make extrusion processors more profitable.
Extrusion & Compounding at NPE: More Output, More Flexibility, Less Energy
There won't be many blown-film lines running, but there is still much in the way of innovation going on in extrusion and compounding.
FDA Gives OK to Novel RPET Extrusion System
German equipment supplier Gneuss (U.S. office in Matthews, N.C.) last month received an unrestricted non-objection letter from the U.S.
K Show Report: Nanos Are The Rage
Flat film and sheet toolmakers are focusing on technologies for nanolayer systems.
EXTRUSION & COMPOUNDING: Five-Layer Film Structures Set to Supplant Three Layers?
In blown film, equipment and material suppliers have come together to push five-layer technology into non-barrier applications previously held by three-layer films.
Recycling & Scrap Reclaim at NPE 2003
Most of the news to be found at NPE in post-consumer recycling comes from Europe and concerns direct recycling of PET flake into sheet without repelletizing.
NPE News in Extrusion
This NPE show won’t have a lot of extruders on the floor, either running or static. Instead, look for videos and announcements of new technology. You will also find lots of ingenious peripheral devices to improve output and quality and save resin. Some will do all three, and cost less into the bargain.
Gneuss Moves and Expands
Melt-filtration specialist Gneuss Inc., Matthews, N.C., has moved to a larger facility in the same town.
K 2007 Compounding: New Approaches to Mixing, Pelletizing
In addition to the news reported in our September K Show preview (see Learn More), previously unrevealed developments in Dusseldorf include several ingenious devices designed to save energy, reduce wear, and safeguard compounded material properties.
