The ZSE-27 MAXX “direct-to-sheet” system (photo) facilitates rapid inline compounding and production of prototype sheet samples. Benefits of direct-sheet extrusion include the product having one less heat and shear history, and the economic savings inherent with bypassing the pelletization step. The system includes a co-rotating, intermeshing, twin-screw extruder; a process logic controller (PLC) with a 15-in. touchscreen; and a gear-pump front-end attachment with 20 cm3/rev capacity and a 5-hp a.c. motor. The ZSE-27 MAXX twin-screw extruder system and downstream lamination system each have their own PLC and human-machine interface. These two systems can operate independently, or together via Ethernet to allow fully integrated system sharing of recipe, data acquisition and logic or alarming data. — Leistritz Advanced Technologies Corp., Somerville, N.J.
