TUESDAY NPE 2018 : THE PLASTICS SHOW SHOW DAILY NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY The world's largest fully integrated producer of nylon 6,6 resin Booth S14001 South Hall Range of Products for Extrusion, Compounding Maag Americas | Booth W5775 Maag Americas is showcasing a variety products for extrusion processors and compounders, including: • extrex x6 class Gear Pump: This new and reportedly unique melt pump design delivers the needed volumetric efficiency at the high- est counter pressures and with the lowest amount of shear stress. This results in a reli- able and gentle transfer, boosঞng and meter- ing for a wide range of thermoplasঞcs. • FSC Plate Screen Changer: The FSC is equipped with a pressure-adapঞve sealing system that allows the required sealing forc- es to be adjusted to the actual melt pressure automaঞcally. Their solid and robust con- strucঞon, available in all sizes and designs, ensures a reliable and leak-free filtraঞon of molten polymers. The hydraulically operated screen changer guarantees the protecঞon of melt pumps and mold gaps from damage and dirt. • Extrusion Modular Cart: A space-saving compact movable tripod design reduces in- line footprint compared to four-wheel de- signs. The modular system allows for one size cart to handle the four most common size extrusion pump models for 3.5, 4.5 and 6-in. extrusion lines. With a simple adapter plate change the original cart can handle a larger pump or gearbox, without replacing the cart should the customer need a pump change for more output. • Gala/Automak Model 420 Cyclo Centrifugal Dryer: These newly developed ener- gy-efficient dryers are suit- able for use with both Pearlo underwater pelleঞzing, and M-USG and P-USG underwa- ter strand pelleঞzing systems. In addiঞon to its minimal space requirement, Cyclo also features, highly accessible components, such as the pel- let conveying rotor that pro- vides excellent operaঞng characterisঞcs and efficient servicing. • Gala/Automak EAC-7 PEARLO Underwater Pellezer: Newly design pelleঞzer is for processing pellets for virgin materials, compounds, mas- terbatches, engineered plas- ঞcs, wood and naturally filled polymer com- posites, TPEs, hot-melt adhesives and gum bases at capaciঞes up to 36,000 kg/hr (about 79,400 lb/hr) • Maag Primo E Pellezer: This dry-cut pelleঞzer produces cylindrical pellets that are ideal for further downstream processing. • RES Bullet 64 Pellezer: Designed for 24/7 operaঞon, the Bullet Series is suited for laboratory and producঞon use. The tool-less, removable In-Feed & Discharge Chutes make this pelleঞzer desirable for compounders that have mulঞple material changeovers several ঞmes a shi[. It is easier and faster to clean and service than previous models and pro- vides higher rates, less waste, high product quality and ease of operaঞon. • RES Chameleon Color Mixer: New mixer is suited for color changeover ঞme under 30 min. at throughput rates up to 2,000 lb/hr. It is reportedly easier to use, has a smaller foot- print, and can be designed with a jacketed vessel. This mixer offers beer ergonomics for operators. • RES Pulverizing System Rex Duo: The REX Duo Series pulverizer is used for high quanঞ- ঞes of high quality powder at higher produc- ঞon rates. | (540) 884-2589 Torus Debuts Inspecঞon Equipment for Packaging Torus Measurement Systems | Booth S10073 The U.K.'s Torus Measurement Systems, exhibiঞng for the very first ঞme at the NPE, is offering regular demonstraঞons and informaঞon on its latest plasঞc packaging innovaঞons, which are used extensively for dimensional and destrucঞve tesঞng to meet the quality demands of customers. Over the last five years, the company has developed some key inspecঞon systems for a broad range of boles. On display is the new B302 Thread, Body & Thickness (TBT) Gauge for plasঞc boles and preforms, which reportedly combines the proven inspecঞon capability of Torus' B300 Bole Wall Thickness Gauge with the advanced technologies of the B305 Preform Gauge. The 6-axis TBT Gauge combines automaঞc thread start and bole alignment rouঞnes with the most recent non-contact confocal white-light technology to measure wall thickness, and the latest vision technology to measure neck finish, body dimensions and perpendicularity. This gives the operator the ability to take non-contact dimensions in one single operaঞon without operator influence. This is said to result in savings in labor, ঞme and material costs. The B302 is designed with an extended measurement range to deal with the latest industry needs with scope to measure filled and closed containers in round, oval, square/rectangle and non-symmetrical shaped boles. Measurement results are presented to the operator in a clearly structured interface and can be exported to many leading data acquisiঞon systems. The Torus team is also offering detailed informaঞon on the other equipment in the range—the B300 Bole Wall Thickness Gauge, B301 Semi-Automaঞc Preform Gauge, B303 Bole Burst Gauge, B304 Top Load & Volume Gauge and the B305 Automaঞc Preform Inspecঞon System. | 44 1952 210 020 76
