EXTRUSION AND COMPOUNDING NPE: Flexibility, Speed and Quality
Extrusion processors need more—of everything—to compete. And suppliers responded in force in Orlando.
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.
Pipe Maker Gains Flexibility with Ultrasonic Control System
The recent addition of an ultrasonic gauging and control system is credited by pipe extruder Charter Plastics Inc., Titusville, Pa., with increasing its production flexibility.
New Flexibility For Pipe Extrusion At K'10
Tooling developments allow for versatility, quick changes.
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.
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.
Internally Cooled Pipe Die Speeds Output, Reduces Stresses
The recently developed Internal Air Cooling Die from iBA GmbH in Germany substantially increases output of polyolefin pipe or correspondingly reduces the length of downstream cooling, the company says.
Air/Water Cooling Die Doubles Output of PE Pipe
A new high-output extrusion die for large HDPE or PP pipe (110 to 2000 mm OD) combines water-cooling of the melt before it leaves the die with air cooling inside the pipe.
K 2007 Extrusion: Extrusion Outputs Go Through the Roof
Dramatic production demonstrations of cast and blown film set throughput records on the show floor in Dusseldorf.
First Direct Extrusion of Complex WPC Window Profiles
Wood-plastic composite (WPC) profiles are made by two main approaches.
What to See at NPE 2006: Extrusion
The new factor in extrusion machinery at this NPE is the influx of Asian suppliers.
K 2004 Extrusion: Outputs Rise, Downstream Units Gain Flexibility
The show was packed with new equipment for pipe and profile, including extruders redesigned for higher outputs and/or lower cost, plus new ways to adjust die and calibrator diameters or switch dies and calibrators more quickly.
