NPE 2015 in Orlando, Florida - Invitation to the Exhibition
Labtech Engineering Company invites you to their booth to get a first hand demonstration on any of the many machines they will be showing at NPE.
They are located in Hall E, booth 7963 and this year they have 1800 square feet filled with many of their machines.
They will show the following machines:
Brand new worlds smallest 3-layers CO-EX Chill Roll Line
The line features two units of our conical extruders which have the uniqe features to be able to use regular plastic pellet sizes. This ist made possible by having an in feed section diameter of 16mm which then gradually reduces to 8mm at the screw tip.
The sectional type of feed block divides the flow from the extruders into layers A+B+A. The extruders have an accurate servo motor drive which enables a precise control of the layer thicknesses.
Brand New Worlds smallest Ultra Micro 3-layers Co-Ex Film Blowing line
This line is still being built when this invitation letter is being sent out and the machine will be air freighted to NPE in time for the show.
The line features same type of extruders as shown for our Ultra Micro co-ex chill roll line on the previous page but it will have 3 extruders for an A+B+C film configuration.
The tower is equipped with a 360° oscillating nip rolls and a two station wind up. As with our Ultra Micro co-ex chill roll line, it also features a complete touch screen control of all running parameters.
Computerized Filter Tester with Gear Pump and 25 mm extruder
The filter tester is used for testing particle size in any type of compound and can be supplied with filters down to 5 microns size. The machine features a test head with an in line gear pump and an easily removable filter disk retainer. With this the melt flow is in straight line all the way from the extruder and has no diversion channels ensuring easy and fast cleaning. The control unit has a large screen which will show the test in real time and the data for the test batch can easily be keyed in on the practical key board. All test data can be and graphs can be saved on board and downloaded to an external PC.
The machine shown at NPE is sold to DuPont, USA and is made as a special clean room version with a stainless steel body. It is equipped with a 25 mm 30 L/D extruder. Same type of filter tester can also be supplied with our 20 mm, 30 L/D extruder.
Hands Free fully Automatic Two-Roll Mill with batch roll over device
The “hands free” press operates fully automatic from the time the plastic pellets are placed on the rolls until it is fully melted and homogenized.
The mill features a high capacity PLC connected to a large touch screen with user friendly graphics. The mill can be programmed to run in a large variety of automatic steps and is being used for many different applications, like color matching, quality control of purchased pigments as well as evaluation of many additives. Thanks to the fully automatic operation, a batch can be run at exactly the same conditions from one time to another.
Automatic Hydraulic Press with insert cooling system
This press has programmable cycles where it will run fully automatic from inserting the mould until the specimen is completed and cooled down. The cycles which can be set up on the touch screen comprises of
- Pressing at full pressure
- Brief opening for venting (if needed)
- Full pressing at a preset time
- Cooling where the external cooling platens are inserted automatically in between the mould.
3-layers Co-Ex Chill Roll line with two 25 mm extruders
We produce a very large variety of Co-Ex Cast Film & Sheet lines with sizes up to 700 mm roll widths and up to 9 layers.
The co-ex chill roll line we will show at NPE has two extruders for an A+B+A configuration and the chill roll unit has 3 rolls with a roll width of 350 mm and roll diameter of 145 mm. The top roll is laid on to the centre roll hydraulically.
The line is equipped with a 250 mm wide die and a 3 layers feed block.
The extruders are of our new compact type and each extruder is equipped servo motor drive. They also have a gravimetric hopper feeder which enables a very precise control of layer thickness.
3-layers Co-Ex Blowing line with three 25 mm extruders
Our Co-Ex film blowing lines are available in a lot of sizes, from the smallest Ultra Micro version with 8 mm extruders to the largest versions with 9 layers, 9 extruders of various sizes and lay flat width up to 700 mm.
The line we are showing you at NPE has a 3-layers pancake type die with a die lip diameter of 50 mm. The extruders are all of 25 mm diameter with an L/D ratio of 30. The tower has a motorized height adjustment where the total distance from die lip to the nip-rolls can be adjusted from 1.14 to max 2.14 meter. The line is with fully computerized with controls from a large central touch screen.
All extruders are equipped with our gravimetric hopper feeding system which are controlled from a separate large touch screen where you can key in the feed rate in weight unit per minute and in percent of total output.
26 mm, 40 L/D twin screw com-pounding line with SideCut pelletizer
All our twins are made with modular clamshell barrels which have easy replaceable wear insert, an exclusive design by our company.
We will be showing our economy version of our 26 mm 40 L/D twin screw extruder, featuring conventional digital instrumentation and equipped with our modular clam shell barrel type with wear inserts as well as easy exchangeable screw elements. The same size of twin is also available in a MaxiCompounder version with high 22 kW drive and a max screw RPM of 1200. Further it can be supplied with fully computerized controls enabling down and uploading of all running parameters.
Featuring the amazing Side-Cut pelletizer which cuts the strands with a scissors action, using a large fan like knife rotor with angled knives. Resulting in very nice pellets from the softest to the hardest of resins and compounds.
This twin screw line will be running with a soft TPE type of resin to show the capabilities of the SideCut pelletizer.
All machines at our booth will be running at all show hours using polymers which has kindly been given to us by Dow USA, DuPont USA and Formosa USA.
We hope you will be able to visit us at NPE2015 so we can give you a personal demonstration of all the machines we show and also explain all the other machines we have in our large range of laboratory and pilot plant machines.
In the event that you are not able to come to NPE, we will be very pleased to receive your specific inquiry and to send you our catalogues and favourable quotations.
We all look forward seeing you at NPE any day from March 23 to 27 and you can find our booth # W7963 in Hall E as shown below.
