Polymer Processing Equipment consists of micro, mini and nano compounders, compression presses, injection moulders, extruders, mills and mixers. These technologies are used by leading universities and research centres, pharmaceutical and medical centres and industries such as Aeronautics and Space. Polymer Processing Equipment can be flexibly configured, designed and manufactured to suit the many different user requirements.
Academia and research use Polymer Processing Equipment in laboratories, production and sterile room environments. The equipment extends capabilities, offering a high level of monitoring and control via data acquisition.
Aeronautics and Space Industries can use Polymer Processing Equipment to engineer new products in order to adhere to changing standards, improve design scope, lower fuel consumption and reduce costs.
The Healthcare Industry benefits massively from Polymer Processing Equipment. Novel techniques enable a greater selection and precision of material content. Higher temperatures can be used and bio-polymer technology can be further developed. Savings can be made in additives, flexibility is offered in design scope and pharmaceutical drug delivery, medical devices and surgical implements can be enhanced with ease of fabrication. Machines are available to CE and GMP standards, with service and support on hand. Productivity is maximised with data acquisition used for statistical process control.
The Packaging Industry for food, drink, personal care, household, healthcare and other industry products has access to a range of ancillary equipment and machines, aimed at maximising productivity. The same applies to the Plastics and Rubber Industries. All these industries can make tremendous use of compression, compounding, extrusion, moulding and mixing techniques.
Compression moulding machines allow precision, density versatility, durability and porosity control, with options and tools designed for customer needs. The machines are capable of fabricating small components, nano-textured surfaces and novel composites, using materials that are compression mouldable, such as carbon fibre-reinforced polymers.
Injection moulding machines are ideal for lab, batch and large scale production of small components, in clean room conditions. Procedures include moulding novel and mechanical micro-components, such as rotors, valves and lenses.
Mixing and mill machines include mini mixers and two-role mills. Mini mixers are versatile and operate at high speeds. Interchangeable stainless steel bowls are generally used with resistance to corrosion. Applications of mini mixers include premixing of granules, powders and liquids. Two-roll mills are used for calendaring and mixing. They can be used for example, to mix resin compositions, while ensuring additives are thoroughly dispersed.
Twin screw compounders offer real flexibility to industries with a range of mixing, kneading and shear screw elements. These compounders enable efficient compounding of advanced substances such as polymer nanocomposites and biodegradable materials. The latest machines boast touch screen controls and data-logging, with easy to use and efficient interfaces. These are the ultimate way to save time and money.
Single screw extruders have a combination of advantages, combining energy efficiency, compact size and high production capabilities. In the medical industry they are suited to a range of processing and polymer applications including the production of catheters, micro-tubing, cast and blown films. They are also used for making dense solid dosage forms with low excipient amounts required. In the packaging industry they are used to develop plastic coatings for card cartons and plastic films for shopping bags and recyclable packaging. The use of these technologies is so diverse across different industries.
