R&D

Doing a lot with a very little bit…

Who

  • Researchers
  • Material scientists
  • Polymer engineers

     

Concerns

  • Tiny amounts
  • Precious samples
  • Compounding the right material
  • Structure / rheology changes from compounding
  • Costs and results

Ideal compounding and measurement

  • Offers precisely controlled extrusion of high viscous melts
  • Uses as little as 5 g or 7 ml of material
  • Measures structural changes during compounding
  • Channel and bypass valve allow defined residence in time in extruder
  • Optional force feeder provides continuous extrusion with small volume
MiniLab Application

Industries

  • Polymers
  • Food
  • Pharma
  • Cosmetics
     

Requirements

  • Flexibility
  • Precise compounding
  • Simultaneous measurements
  • Fast setup
  • Easy cleanup and switching
     

Ideal sample preparation

  • Creates ISO/ASTM-compliant test specimens
  • Works well with minimal sample amounts from 2ml to 12.5ml
  • Various geometries available
  • Customized molds


     
MiniJet Pro

Featured compounder

The Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniLab II Micro-Compounder is used early in the R&D process for materials studies of rheology and structural change.

It needs very little material (5g) for analysis, and that can be further used in the MiniJet Pro Injection Molding system.

Discoveries made with the HAAKE MiniLab II Micro-Compounder can be used to design a continuous process on larger extruders.

Concerns

  • Creating prototypes and first batches
  • Optimize process and scale-up
  • Limited sample and batch volumes
  • Scale-up process parameters
  • Expensive materials
  • Nano compounding
  • Conduct numerous trials efficiently and at low cost
  • Minimize risk

Ideal extrusion on the right scale

  • Offers a small, simple, scalable system for extrusion
  • Requires just 20 grams of material per hour
  • Broad range of accessories available for different applications
  • Fast cleanup
  • Integrated feeder control
  • Intuitive operation

  • Adhesives
  • Additives
     

Requirements

  • Flexibility
  • Reliable compounding
  • Scalability
  • Fast setup
  • Fast cleanup and switching

MiniJet

Featured extruder

The Thermo Scientific™ Process 11 Extruder performs well in continuous operation for pilot-scale production.

It requires only a small amount of material (20g/hr) for new material production. Samples of the new material can then be used to create test specimens with the Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniJet Pro Injection Molding system.

All parameter setpoints and process insights discovered with the Process 11 Extruder can be easily scaled up to larger production systems.

Ideal measurement and compounding

Ideal extrusion on the right scale

  • Continuous operation
  • Small amount needed (20g/hr) for new material production

Featured injection molder

The Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MiniJet Pro Injection Molding System produces test specimens for further mechanical testing.

ISO/ASTM methods can describe the specimen dimensions/geometries and the test itself, and custom geometries can be requested.

The MiniJet Pro is an excellent companion for any extruder and can also be used for QC of existing /commercial polymer powders or pellets.
