Kimberly Medford promoted from v.p., general counsel to succeed Dr. Kirk Hanawalt, who retired earlier this year.
Dieffenbacher builds single-extruder line for LFT-D to compound recycled materials as powder, chips or pellets.
Can be used on any style extruder, as well as extruder barrels, heads and injection and blow molding machines.
High-precision mixing, granulation and vacuum drying in a single vessel.
There’s a shift to underwater pelletizing systems as compounders strive to produce higher-quality pellets. But underwater pelletizers are not general-purpose tools. Follow these steps to help ensure you maintain throughput, pellet quality and efficiency.
KNOW HOW: EXPERT ADVICE
Here are some simple tools to help monitor and optimize your devolatilization process.
Very little has been written about this critical topic, and most of what has been published is theoretical. Here’s some practical guidance to help you better understand the process and improve your operation.
When utilized in a thoughtful way, the corotating intermeshing twin-screw extruder can transform recycled materials into value-added products and parts. Here’s what you need to know, and some real-world examples of the technology deployed for both post-industrial and post-consumer recycling.
Three distinguished experts in the area of reactive extrusion shed some light on this process.
ROSS has recently designed a skid system capable of mixing and pumping low to moderately viscous products.
Named regional sales manager for the northern tier of the U.S.
Common stainless steel workbench holds both the mixer and a matching discharge system.
Managing and controlling melt temperature and degradation in a corotating compounding twin is critical to achieve process optimization. For compounders, it also greatly influences the ability of their molding and extrusion customers to make high-quality parts. Here are the results of research that illustrate this.
Plastics Technology will bring its Molding and Extrusion Conferences to Illinois. Attendees for either can attend sessions in both.
Two compounders that specialize in engineering thermoplastics for technical applications discuss what they are doing to meet demands for PCR compounds.
Series is height adjustable and can process highly filled and viscous materials.
Plastics processors are among the manufacturers that stepped up big-time in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic. I’m proud to turn over this space this month to Rick Kline Jr., president of our parent company Gardner Business Media, whose comments below (edited) appeared originally March 31 in a OpEd piece published by the Wall Street Journal.
Proprietary power transmission design and bearing configuration make this possible.
Saves time, money by eliminating the need for multiple mixers separately dedicated to each vessel or product
