These extruders exemplify pro- cessing versaঞlity and performance, and are shown furnished with new feedscrew and control technology. The 2.5 in. (65-mm) direct drive groove feed extruder features a Davis-Standard Heli- bar design with a grooved intake zone, heli- cally grooved barrel, and new barrier-mixing feedscrew technology. This extruder and feedscrew combinaঞon offers increased pro- cessing flexibility due to higher regrind levels and improved pressure stability. It also en- ables processing of a wider range of polymers at lower internal pressure and with improved energy efficiency. The Helibar design is ad- vantageous in terms of higher throughput, improved melt pressure build-up, lower melt temperatures, improved melt homogeneity, reduced barrel wear and a shorter residence ঞme. Applicaঞons well-suited to this extruder include pipe, profile, sheet and blow molding processes. The 2.5 in. Thermaঞc on display has up- graded gearbox design, barrel cooling, vent diverter geometry and more. It is part of a running TPE tubing line demonstraঞng the smart extrusion features of Industry 4.0 or IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). This in- cludes monitoring of vibraঞon, oil composi- ঞon, motor parameters, heater status, screw wear algorithm and energy consumpঞon. The Thermaঞc is available in L/D raঞos of 24:, Molding Foam with a Smooth Surface Yizumi-HPM Corp. | Booth W3343 30: and 34:1 and can be equipped with any Davis-Standard DSB feedscrew, as well as the TS DSBM, TS Metering, TS DS-Blend, and a variety of metering screws and specialized designs. The Super Blue offers compeঞঞve pricing, reliability and fast delivery, Davis-Standard says. The feedscrews are interchangeable, and the system uses a low-noise double- reducঞon gearbox. It is available in sizes ranging from 2 in. (50 mm) to 4.5 in. (114 mm), each with the opঞon of a 24:1 or 30:1 L/D raঞo. At NPE, the Super Blue is equipped with the DS-eTPC II, the second generaঞon of Davis-Standard's touch-screen control. This controller is well-suited for pipe, pro- file and tubing, elastomer, wire and cable, sheet and reclaim applicaঞons. Notable en- hancements include a larger 15-inch (380- mm) viewing screen with mulঞ-touch capabil- iঞes for zoom in/out, control for up to three extruders, and real-ঞme and historical data trending. | (860) 599-1010 Yizumi HPM recently revised several lines of machines specifically for the North Ameri- can market, with appropriate safeঞes, UL cerঞficaঞon, U.S. platen-mounঞng paerns, Bosch Rexroth hydraulics, and new KEBA touchscreen controls that maintain a uni- form format across different machine lines. NPE features three machines with "N" (for North American) designaঞon: • A 1,200-ton, 240-oz DP-N series two-platen, servo-hydraulic model in a series from 550 to 3,500 tons. It uses Trexel's Mu- Cell foam technology to mold a protecঞve briefcase in an aluminum mold. Yizumi Foam- Pro technology combines MuCell with rap- id-heat/cool mold technology, using a TCU from Single. This produces a range of surface textures, from leather-grain to high gloss. • A 360-ton, 34-oz A5-N series servo-hy- draulic toggle in a line from 65 to 1,125 tons. It is molding a 2.5-gal pail using the HPM Double-Wave screw technology for rapid recovery with excellent melt quality. • A 65-ton, 2-oz model from the firm's newest all-electric FE-N series (65 to 290 tons). This machine is running a small medical part. | (740) 382-5600 75
