The T50 Series Granulators have precision tolerance cuমng chambers creaঞng regrind consistency and allowing for smooth repro- cessing, the company says. The T50 Series Granulator boasts an efficient Twin Shear design that reportedly reduces energy con- sumpঞon and the overall cost per pound of output. The machine provides consistent regrind by using a rugged knife assembly with precise tolerance. Because of its heavy-duty rotor construcঞon, the T50 Se- ries Granulator rotaঞng knives are fixed, al- lowing adjustment to take place at the bed knife. The T50 Series Granulators feature a wide-open design. The screens are reversible to be used longer. A new rear hopper door is equipped with a zero-speed locking mecha- nism and improved seal design. Locking the rotor is now as simple as the push of a buon and access for cleaning is only possible when the rotor stops spinning. A new linear actuat- ed rear cuমng chamber door offers easy ac- cess for bed knife maintenance. In addiঞon, Cumberland is presenঞng a new Versaঞle FRV & Edge Trim FRE Series Feedroll system, which features a wide range of capabiliঞes for thermoforming scrap recla- maঞon, with a granulator feed conveyor. Versaঞle FRV Series Feedrolls are used in combinaঞon with a granulator to process sheet, film, web and part imbedded sheet. The system is available in two versions, allowing the flexibility to run thin film or large draw parts up to 8-in. tall. The Versaঞle FRV Series Feedroll system features a broad opening (up to 56 in. across) to handle challenging scrap associated with large thermoforming applicaঞons. This new design helps eliminate jamming or misfeeds when processing bulky scrap during startup, the company states. cumberland-plasঞ | (262) 641-8600 Gamut of New Technologies for Compounding Leistritz Extrusion | Booth W5545 Leistritz Extrusion will feature a range of new systems for compounding at NPE2018, in- cluding complete twin-screw extrusion lines, one system designed to make 3D filaments for addiঞve manufacturing. A ZSE 18 system consists of: loss-in-weight feeders; the ZSE 18 co-rotaঞng twin screw extruder; gear pump; and die to produce 1- to 5-mm 3D filaments. Downstream, the line is equipped with a custom air-rack for air- quench cooling and sizing of the filament, plus a belt puller, laser gauge, and winder. The con- trol system will integrate closed-loop pressure control to ensure a ঞght-tolerance product. The ZSE 18 system is reportedly ideal for in-line compounding of polymers with addi- ঞves and acঞve-fillers. Formulaঞons can be modified "on the fly" for rapid sampling of modified filaments with different formulaঞon percentages. The ZSE 18 system is rated for 797° F operaঞon, allowing it to process high-tem- perature engineering polymers. Throughputs range from 2 to 44 lb/hr. Larger producঞon ZSE systems are available for filament, profile and shape extrusion. Leistritz is also displaying a ZSE 50 MAXX twin that includes a modular design for bar- rels and screws and an insulated barrel cover. A unique extended length facilitates mulঞple downstream operaঞons, including mulঞ- stage venঞng, liquid injecঞon and up to two LSB 50 XX side stuffers for filler/fiber intro- ducঞon into the melt stream. The ZSE 50 MAXX is ideal for a wide range of compound- ing applicaঞons and can handle throughputs of more than 2,200 lb/hr at 1,200 rpm. The LSB XX series side stuffer is supplied with a high 2.0 OD/ID raঞo for the screws, which can be segmented, and it can also con- vey materials with very low bulk densiঞes. Segmentaঞon allows the screws to be config- ured according to the needs of the raw mate- rial in use. The LSB XX can be adapted to the processing unit via ঞe rods. Another advan- tage of this side stuffer is that barrels can be jacketed for cooling or heaঞng. | (908) 685-2333 From the simplest single-layer tubing die to the most complex multi-layer, multi-lumen crosshead and hard-to- process materials, look to Guill for creative and effective solutions to your extrusion challenges.
