What is the best extruder type for my application? What screw design is best for the desired product properties? A structured approach helps to set up a compounding process that is stable, efficient and yields the desired end product. 

The ever-growing variety of special materials based on polymers poses challenges in the compounding process. Equipment type and set-up significantly affect end-product quality in compounding applications. 

Achieve reliable scale-up, reduced time to market, and controlled, continuous processing with our wide range of reliable, flexible compounders and extruders for material development.

Rheology has proven to be an excellent tool to analyze the mechanical properties of polymers in solid or molten states. It’s essential for optimizing formulations and blends, and adapting processes.

Unleash new potential with microcompounding

With the Process 11 Extruder you can run your design of experiment with as little as 20 grams of material and ensure production-related development of e.g. 3D filaments, sheets, fiber spinning or nanomaterials.
