TEL: 630.687.9876 FAX: 866.755.9258 E-MAIL: WEB: 1901 Powis Court, West Chicago, IL. 60185 The Professional source for Granulators, Shredders, and Pulverizers. Booth W7785 No-Dry PET Sheet Can Be Foamed, Too Gneuss Inc. | Booth W6473 Gneuss Extrusion Technology is showing a complete Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) composed of a Mulঞ Rotaঞon System (MRS) 130 extruder, an RSFgenius 150 fully auto- maঞc melt filter, and the VIS online viscom- eter. The line is made for processing un- dried, uncrystallized PET at rates up to 2000 lb/hr. The MRS extruder permits PET to be processed without pre-drying by using a simple water- ring vacuum system. The ma- chine has a unique and patented processing secঞon that's based on a convenঞonal sin- gle-screw extruder; it's a drum containing eight satellite single screws, driven by a ring gear-and-pinion transmission. The "barrels" cut into the drum are approximately 30% open and provide opঞmum exposure of the melt. Thanks to this design, devolaঞlizing per- formance is said to be 50 ঞmes greater than a convenঞonal single-screw extruder—at a vacuum of only 25 to 40 mbar. By avoiding the need for a deep vacuum system and pre-drying, the MRS is billed as an economi- cally efficient alternaঞve to convenঞonal technologies. The system is most commonly used in PET sheet processing. And a new foam module now permits processors to quickly switch from rigid to physically foamed PET. Foam sheet with a weight reducঞon of 50% can be extruded (depending on the process) with a consistent foam structure and mechanical properঞes from up to 100% post-consumer material, says Gneuss. | (704) 841-7251 New Servo-Hydraulic Toggles for Two-Shot Molding Fortune Int. Inc. | Booth W663 New from Taiwan is the Rc-Series of two-component, servo-hydraulic toggle presses from For- tune Internaঞonal/Victor Taichung. In sizes of 180 to 450 m.t., they have a 180-degree rotaঞng plate and either verঞcal or horizontal (L-type) second injecঞon unit. The company also offers energy-saving ES servo-hydraulic toggles from 50 to 1,600 m.t. The new-generaঞon V8800 control has a swivel-mounted, 15-in. touch screen with internal memory for up to 1,000 molds, USB port, and a single screen for seমng clamp and ejector posiঞons, screw retracঞon, injecঞon, temperatures, and air eject. Data collecঞon for producঞon manage- ment and quality control is also provided. | (732) 214-0700 DID YOU KNOW? NPE is produced by Plascs Industry Associaon, which was founded in 1937.
