Lab Extruder


© Nico Niemeyer

Manufacturer: ThermoFisher Scientific

Short description: The modular design of the co-rotating twin-screw extruder allows thermoplastics to be melted, degassed, reinforced, filled, colored, functionalized with various additives, concentrated, homogenized and compacted.

Processing media: Thermoplastic (bio) plastics / compounds (granules, powder, grist), blends and (bio-based) composite materials

Applications: Recipe development/process optimization in R&D for thermoplastic (bio)plastics/compounds (pellets, powder, regrind), blends and (bio-based) composites.

Special features: Minimum throughput range 0.5 to 5 kg/h, extruder suitable for filament production for additive manufacturing.
